A Sweet Gift for a New Mommy and Baby

Hey there!! Long time no talk!!! Thank goodness for Fancy This Fridays or you wouldn’t have heard anything from me in weeks!! We’re finally past #weddingbonanza2013 and I’m starting to feel caught back up with everything!!!

So today I’m back on the bloggy-blog to share one of the sweetest gift ideas… Klara recently received her very first Christmas ornament from my friend, Jerri.

Jerri is also a blogger, she blogs at Simply Sweet Home, and she is the owner/creator behind the Etsy shop Simply Sweet Creations. When she offered to create an ornament for miss Klara I was absolutely delighted! I mean who wouldn’t want a keepsake ornament to commemorate their child’s first Christmas?!?! AWESOME Gift Idea Alert!!!

I was able to choose whether I wanted just her first name or also her middle name, the color of the ribbon and the cute little charm! Don’t you think the rocking horse is so fitting?!?! The other charms include a Christmas tree, baby bottle, baby feet, pacifier, high chair, or a ducky.

The ornament itself is made of two hand stamped aluminum disks that will not rust and thus hang beautifully on your holiday tree for many years!! I really, really believe this would make a beautiful gift for your new mommy friend, a baby shower gift, Christmas gift for your own new little one… As a new mommy myself I was touched by the simplicity but lasting quality of our ornament.

Plus it makes a darling photo prop!! 😉

You can get your own Hand Stamped Baby’s First Christmas Ornament from Jerri’s shop at that link. She also creates hand stamped necklaces and key chains as well as other lovely handmade jewelry.

Your turn: My family has always had the tradition of a new Christmas ornament every year for each of the kids. I plan to carry on that tradition with Klara. Do you have any ornament or other special Christmas traditions?

  1. We used to have that tradition, but it ended somewhere along the line. I’m doing it for Quinn though 🙂 Last year was a cute little gingerbread girl.

  2. Kassi, I’m so glad you like the ornament. I hope it looks great on your tree. Thanks so much for the lovely post. I’ll be sure to share it around.

      Thank you again Jerri!!! I can’t wait to hang it up at Christmas time! Such a sweet idea!!!

  3. That ornament is super darling! I would even hang something like that on my tree and I’m not really a keepsake ornament type of person. I love it.

  4. what a sweet idea, I love this! I will def. need an ornament for my little one when s/he arrives. I’ll keep this in mind!
