Thank you to Ornaments With Love for providing a complimentary product sample for us to base this review upon and for providing an additional product for our contest prize. All opinions expressed are my own.
Since before my husband and I were married, we began a tradition of buying personalized dated ornaments each year to hang on our Christmas tree. Before we had children, we would get a couples ornament for just the two of us plus an ornament for each of our cats and dogs. After our family began to grow, we would buy a personalized ornament to represent the whole family, my husband and I as a couple, an ornament for each of our 3 children, and one for all the pets together. Needless to say, we have a large collection of ornaments, but each and every one of them are special to us.
I have been a customer of this small business before I even started blogging. I kept coming back every year because there is such an enormous selection of ornaments to choose from plus new styles added each year. I usually buy all bread dough or resin ornaments, but this year I chose a glass ball ornament for our family ornament from Ornaments With Love. I realized last year that, over time, several of our glass ball ornaments had been lost due to breakage. I really would like to add more to our ornament collection over the next few years.
This particular Personalized Penguin Family with 3 Children Glass Ball Ornament features 5 penguins in a snowy scene. Like most Ornaments With Love tree ornaments, I was able to specify the year, the names, and a short caption. This ball ornament comes with a ready-to-wrap box that also will store the ornament safely when it's time to take your tree down. When shipping your bread dough and resin ornaments, this company also includes Holiday-themed cellophane bags with twist ties and gift labels for you to easily gift the ornaments you purchased.
I also wanted to share the other ornaments I purchased this year from Ornaments With Love. I was thrilled to find tech-themed ornaments to fit our extremely techie family. Although our daughter is also tech-oriented, I chose an arts and crafts-themed ornament for her because I think art is her first love. I also chose some cute mittens hanging from a mantel for our 3 cats. (Our poor hermit crabs and fish don't get their own ornaments or stockings.)
