In fact… I was thinking of doing exactly that in honor of the pup I lost last year. 1 agrees Reply My husband and I dated at college for several years before we moved in together, and from about year two we had a tradition of giving each other Christmas baubles at Christmas. It meant that the first Christmas we had a tree of our own we could fill it with ornaments we had collected over the years, rather than going out at that point and trying to build up a collection to fill a tree on a budget. One of my friend's boyfriend's families growing up had a tradition of using tree decorations as gift labels, so the kids built up their own collection of one from each family member each year as they were growing up. We sometimes give personalised Christmas decorations as wedding presents (names and wedding date) – people really seem to like it. I think it can be nice to build up collections organically of lots of ornaments where each one (or set) is special and has a particular association. Makes decorating the tree fun in so many ways! Reply It's also my favorite part about decorating when I pull out the ornaments. When Shawn and I moved in together, almost all of the ornaments were mine from when I was a kid or ones I was gifted over the years (my mom still does this). Now, we have a tradition that when we travel, we get an ornament or 2 to put on the tree the following Christmas and now we have a good collection. Anyway — I love these ornaments, I'll definitely be checking them out. 🙂 Reply My sister and her wife are closing on their house on Dec. 23 so I love the idea of a housewarming ornament! Like others in the comments decorating the tree is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. There is always at least one ornament in each of our stockings, sometimes multiple, so we use a fine-tipped permanent marker to put our initials and the year on each one. Then when we're decorating we look for the initials and each hang our own, assuming we're home for that activity. Sadly it's been a couple years since I got to be at my parents' for that.
