My favorite ornaments are ones that are handmade, especially kid-made. It means that someone made something with YOU in mind.
My son gave me the sweetest pinecone Rudolph ornament one year. It was a Christmas craft that his kindergarten class made. He even colored his own paper bag wrapping paper. I could tell he couldn’t wait to give it to us and that he was proud of it. He made us wait until Christmas though…hahaha!
Not only was it cute and made by him, it reminded me of the previous 2 years where we collected tons of pinecones every time we went for a short walk together. It was perfect! It’s something that will make me smile every Christmas. Memorable.
