One of my favorite things about Christmas time is all of our traditions both old and new. Dustin and I take our girls to pick out a live Christmas tree just like our parents did with us each year growing up. We use the same Christmas countdown calendar that I used growing up – an awesome garage sale score. This year we started a 24 days of books count down where the girls get to open a wrapped book each night and then we read it before bed. And every single year since Dustin and I have been married we have made sure to get a personalized Christmas ornament to place on our tree.
We began by getting our personalized ornaments at a small kiosk in our local shopping mall, but after a few years they just didn’t have the selection I was looking for especially with our growing family. And so I turned to the internet where I found Ornaments with Love.
This is our third year selecting our personalized ornament from Ornaments with Love and every year while browsing around their website I am blown away by the selection which seems to be continuously growing. This is because they stock high quality ornaments from multiple suppliers resulting in a catalog of over 2,000 options!
Ornaments with Love knows that the key to a personalized gift is that the personalization is done in a professional manner. No matter how high the product quality is if the personalization looks like a three year old did it you might as well toss it in trash. This is something you will never have to worry about when ordering from Ornaments with Love because all of their personalizers have excellent handwriting giving them the ability to infuse additional warmth into an already warm, beautiful ornament. In addition, each individual order placed with Ornaments with Love is always completed by a single personalizer so that the hand writing for every ornament in the order will be consistent. I have loved each and every one of our ornaments.
With three little ones in our family I headed to the “Personalized Family Christmas Ornaments” section of their website and began browsing around. When I found the Ornaments with Love Bear Family with Sled I knew that was the perfect ornament. I really liked that this ornament was available with one to three children and that the bear children got progressively bigger – just like my girls that are one, three, and five years old. The bear family is also standing on a banner of white snow which is perfect for your family name and the year while first names are placed on each bears hat. This ornament measures approximately 4” by 4” and is made of clay dough so it does have a bit of weight to it. Just be sure to hang it on a nice sturdy tree limb.
There were a few differences I noticed from the ornament we received compared to the picture on the website. The color of the bears are darker, almost black, compared to the brown color in the stock photo which makes it so their eyes don’t stand out very well especially in photos. Also the bells on the two bear children on the back of the sled are painted on, but appear to be real jingle bells in the stock photo. Regardless this is still a high quality that I will proudly display on our Christmas tree, but I would prefer the stock photo to be a more accurate depiction of the product.
Each year I decorate our Christmas tree with handmade ornaments that I have either made myself or purchased on Etsy. The only other ornaments that are placed on the tree are our personalized ornaments. I like that the hand written personalization makes our Ornaments with Love fit in very well with the theme of our tree each year. So pretty!
