If you’re anything like me, you get tired of the generic ornaments on your tree everything Christmas rolls around. You want to add a little flair and personality to your ornaments, but you’re not exactly sure how. Did you know that you can have your own personalized set of ornaments just for $10 or more per ornament? Most places would charge you anywhere from $15 to even $90 just for a personalized ornament! But not OrnamentsWithLove.com!

OrnamentsWithLove.com offers over 700 personalized ornaments and a variety of photo frames and table decorations. Most of their ornaments are handmade from artists and companies all around the United States. Many of the ornaments are made from bread dough here in the United States. Others are made of wood, resin, polymer clay or clay dough. If you are looking for a specific ornament (i.e. a horse or a panda), then they have a lot to choose from. Unless specified, all ornaments come with personalization that you do right at ornament’s page. So let’s say you want to order the Cat – Grey Tabby Personalized Christmas Ornament. When you visit the page, all you have to do is type in the name you want for the ornament, the year, the quantity, and just press “Add to Cart!”. It’s very simple!

I love personalized items, especially at Christmas since it makes it so special for that person receiving the gift. I personally love the Twin category of the ornaments for obvious reasons!  I have no idea which one to choose! At first I thought Bronner’s had the best ornament selection but because OrnamentsWithLove.com has more handmade and personable ornaments that are just too cute for words, I think I may have to take that one back. OrnamentsWithLove.com has been in the retail gifts business for over 50 years! But in just the last 10 years, they have made it a priority to take what they know and apply it to personalized Christmas ornaments!

So if you’re looking for a few places for personalized ornaments but don’t want to spend a ton of money, I promise that you won’t have. They even have a category for items under $10 so if you’re trying to save money this Christmas but still want to show that special someone you care, you won’t want to miss it!

To me, making crafts at Christmas is fun! Making snowmen out of pillbottles or Angles out of styrofoam. If you’re creative and not sure how to make your Christmas homemade without spending hords of money on bows that will only be ripped off in seconds or ornaments that will end up broken before they’re even taken back into storage, try making your own homemade Christmas!

At HowStuffWorks, they have articles on many different articles on how to make Christmas ornaments as well as wreaths. The wreaths they create on HowStuffWorks are intricate so if you have patience and want to make a wreath that is Macy’s worthy, head over here to make your own “Snow-Themed Wreath”. But you also have the choice of making other types of wreaths as well as ornaments and garland.

If you want more selection and kid-friendly crafts, AllFreeCrafts.com is your place to go. They have hundreds of Christmas crafts to choose from and they even have crafts for your children to do this Christmastime. While they may seem difficult, they are actually rather easy to create. Even if you wanted to make some extra cash, you can sell your creations on Etsy.com in time for the Holidays. If you’re REALLY into make your own Christmas ornaments, AllFreeCrafts.com has plenty of ways to spice up an transparent ball ornament. and AssociatedContent.com has tons of articles for you to pick from if you are interested in making your own painted Christmas ball ornament.
