Keeping with this tradition with my own children, I have decided to come up with a way to keep ornaments better organized.
Christmas Ornament Memory Box
What is the easiest way to keep all those ornaments stored and organized?
In the last few years, I started writing the year and initials on the ornaments if I could sneak it on the back or bottom of it without damaging the overall look.
This year I decided to try something different. How to best organize your Christmas ornaments while creating a tradition.
How to Create a Christmas Ornament Memory Box
BUY AN ORNAMENT STORAGE BOX
While shopping one day I found $5.00 ornament boxes, which each holds 35 ornaments. They are compact and sturdy. I bought one for each of my children.
PERSONALIZE THE BOX
Add your children’s names to the boxes. Start a list of ornaments by year for each child including who they were from.
STORE ORNAMENTS BY CHILD
Place each of the kids’ ornaments in their boxes with the list on top for easy access if you need to add more.
Each year I will add to their boxes and complete their list. These Christmas ornament memory boxes will serve as a wonderful keepsake when they are ready to start their own traditions or move out of the house.
The kids enjoy packing and unpacking “their ornaments” each year which brings up great memories too.
I wanted to share the amazing Christmas ornament from Hallmark that the kids will be getting this year. They are from the Hallmark’s Heritage Collection. The high-quality ornaments are handcrafted and designed by Hallmark artists and inspired by the rich history of Hallmark. Each ornament is hand-blown and crafted by artisans in Poland.
These are truly remarkable ornaments. Now that the kids are older I think they can handle these more delicate ornaments. I wish I had our tree out to see how beautiful they would look once hung.
Every ornament’s has a story about it’s an inspiration and the creative process is on the tags, and each piece is packaged in a gold-trimmed box, carefully nestled in shredded paper. I know you want to get a start on your Holiday Shopping.
These three ornaments, as well as others, are available at Hallmark Gold Crown stores or online these ornaments are sure to add a twinkle to any tree.
