Celebrate Everyday Milestones with Ornaments

Our personalized ornaments are more than just holiday decorations; they are a gift that captures joyful memories and celebrates special milestones all year long. While we look forward to decorating our Christmas tree with care, our customizable ornaments make a unique keepsake for anyone at any time throughout the year. Why should they sit collecting dust when your personalized ornaments could be displayed all year round to celebrate life's everyday occasions?  

When you hear "ornaments," red, green, and holiday cheer are the first things that come to mind. But whether you're celebrating the birth of your first grandchild or a personal achievement at work, we're here to inspire you to commemorate the little and big moments in life and build a customized ornament collection that tells a story.  


The Importance of Commemorating Special Occasions 

We believe that commemorating special moments and events in your life is a simple way of celebrating and connecting with your family. Special occasions, including everything from birthdays to coronation ceremonies and ancient rituals, have been celebrated for centuries. In today's modern age, it's essential to take a break from the hustle of life and appreciate the people and opportunities around you. Commemorating a special occasion with personalized ornaments is one of our favorite ways to immortalize a memory, whether it’s with a pet ornament or wedding ornament. 
Something as simple as a customized ornament can solidify memories and cultivate the feeling of family. Every time you or your loved one brings out one of your personalized ornaments, you'll find yourself looking back with fondness and reliving stories of your past to your loved ones. Taking the time to commemorate a moment with a customized ornament creates lasting memories in your family's legacy. 


The Story of Our Ornaments 

Personalized ornaments help tell your story of you, and we've created customized ornaments to reflect every moment and achievement in your life. Years ago, our Founder and CEO, Laura, wanted to find personalized ornaments to commemorate all of life's special occasions and milestones within her family. Unable to find them, she did what any artist would do—she created customized ornaments herself!  
Today, our personalized ornaments have donned Christmas trees in many homes, including ours, becoming beloved keepsakes for many families. Every year since, our tradition has been adding a new customizable ornament to commemorate something significant for every family member that year. Our tree tells the story of us: where we've been and where we plan to go. Start your collection of personalized ornaments to appreciate the life and family you've been given. 


Why Choose Our Ornaments 

Whether you're searching for wedding or children's ornaments, our customizable ornaments feature handcrafted designs that are the first of their kind. Each oversized ornament has a coordinating ribbon and matching gift box for organized storage or a beautiful and easy gift! With bright colors and jolly illustrations on every customized ornament, you can add colorful embellishments to your Christmas tree and brighten up your home décor for years to come.  

We design our customizable ornaments to help commemorate all of life's milestones. Each of our customized ornaments makes decorating the Christmas tree more than a holiday activity: it's a nostalgic remembrance of past celebrations, telling the story of each collector's life. Our personalized ornaments are a treasured gift that captures happy memories for each recipient.   


Elevate Your Everyday Home Décor with Commemorative Ornaments 

Over the years, we've learned the significance of celebrating life's everyday moments. There's no need to wait until the holidays to display your favorite ornaments: celebrate your accomplishments all year round with personalized ornaments for every occasion. While we enjoy our holiday ornament designs, our commemorative ornaments' different hues and patterns are perfect for home décor throughout the year. From gymnastics ornaments to celebrate your little gymnasts to pet ornaments and more, we have it all. 

Besides the customized ornaments capturing special milestones, we also feature ornament designs inspired by our favorite dinnerware collections for cohesive everyday décor. Embrace summer by popping our Citrus Glass Ornament on the tree in the winter, or set the table with it surrounded by its matching dinnerware collection for a Citrus Celebration. Decorate your space with our Oyster Glass Ornament during your Oyster Roast with friends and family to commemorate the start of oyster season. 
A lot happens in a year—our personalized ornaments make it easy to commemorate life's joyous occasions with a new ornament for every achievement. Collect them all year long for timeless home décor and, when the holidays arrive, a Christmas tree that can tell your life story.
