Collectible baby Christmas tree ornaments are very popular not only with those of us looking for the perfect holiday baby shower gift idea; collectors of Christmas ornaments of all kinds are always on the lookout for rare pieces in unique shapes, themes and sizes that are produced by companies that specialize in inexpensive, decorative collectibles like Hallmark and Disney, and Precious Moments. Slightly more expensive would be ornaments produced on a yearly basis by Lenox and Wedgwood and Waterford whose names are associated with expensive porcelain and crystal glassware. And perhaps the most highly sought after by collectors would be the dated, sterling silver ornaments stamped with the hallmark of world renowned silversmiths like Gorham, Lunt, Towle and Brighton.

A baby’s 1st Christmas tree ornament often reflects the baby’s nursery theme or comes in the shape of traditional baby items. An example of a themed ornament might be a Noah’s Ark ornament, a cute baby jungle animal ornament like a lion, tiger or giraffe or a bunny rabbit. None of which are considered to be Christmas icons but are identified as such with BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS! More classic examples would be a pair of baby booties, a rattle, pacifier, bib or a baby bottle again with a reference that the gift was presented during the infant’s first holiday season.

Not every ornament has an area where the baby’s name or date of birth can be displayed but have the year included in the design. Others are made with a special scroll or plaque where you can fill in the details as well as a greeting. Personalization of metal pieces such as sterling silver ornaments should be done by professional engravers and this service is often included in the purchase price.

If you are buying a gift for a baby that has yet to be born, consider including a gift certificate to the company where you purchased the baby Christmas ornament to cover having the gift personalized at a later date.

The most special gifts of all are handmade by those who love us with those precious baby’s first Christmas ornaments the most cherished of all. Painted ceramics, tiny, hand crocheted baby booties, embroidered and cross stitched fabric crafts will be carefully wrapped and unpacked year after year long after the loving hands that created them are no longer with us. And that’s what baby Christmas ornaments are about, the memories.

If you have a special Christmas tree ornament that has special meaning or brings back wonderful memories of your childhood or those that are no longer with us, please use the form on this page provided by Unique Baby Gear Ideas to upload a picture of it and share your story.
