Honor Our First Responders!

Our first responders work tirelessly to keep us safe! No matter what they are going through in their own personal lives, they show up and protect the good people of their towns from whatever trouble may be out there. First responders risk their lives every day for people they don't even know. Isn't that reason enough to recognize them around the holidays? Recognize commemorate the hold work your first responders put in to protect your family by hanging a Christmas ornament on your tree this year that represents what they do. Ornaments for Keeps recognizes our first responders and here are a few ways you can do that too around Christmas time.

Ways to Recognize Your First Responders Around Christmas Time

1. Take the time to think of your first responders around Christmas.

Many first responders don't get to spend Christmas with their families and friends because they are busy working and protecting people and dedicating their time make sure everyone else is safe. Honor them by thinking of them while they are away from their families on such a meaningful holiday.

"A true police officer fights no because he hates what's in front of him but because he loves who stands behind him." - Unknown

2. Hang an ornament on your tree that represents your first responders and the time they sacrifice for your protection.

We have an abundance of first responder ornaments to choose from. Each of our ornaments are customized and unique. Decorate your tree with ornaments that were made to signify the passion and effort our first responders put in every day to protect us.

"Fear leaves once you realize saving a life is miraculous! Fire is just a thing, people are the priority." - Unknown

3. Donate to local charities that are first responder based.

There are multiple first responder based non-profit organizations, such as the Fraternal Order of Police or the Fire Fighters Association of Missouri. Each of these non profit organizations try to create better communities through education.

The PERFECT Ornament for the PERFECT Couple

Whether you are in a serious relationship or you just got married, the first Christmas you spend with your beloved partner is special. Many memories are made and those memories should be commemorated and cherished. Christmas is a special time of year where love is celebrated and people are brought closer together. In this blog, Ornaments for Keeps will explain 3 ways to commemorate special memories with your significant other or spouse through personalized Christmas ornaments.

3 Ways to Commemorate Special Memories With Your Significant Other or Spouse Through Personalized Christmas Ornaments

1. Capture that special feeling you had on your first date.

Do you remember that first date you had with your partner? Did you go ice skating, to a movie, or just out to a nice dinner? Memories like that don't come along very often and you should celebrate that happiness by remembering it on Christmas, with your beloved partner. Have a personalized Christmas ornament made for your partner that shows what you did on your first date. This can make for a unique and special Christmas gift.

2. Capture that unforgettable moment when you got engaged.

When the love of your life finally got the courage to get down on one knee and ask for your hand in marriage must have been a life change moment. Why wouldn't you commemorate that moment on your first Christmas together? Capture the date and setting where you got engaged in a personalized Christmas ornament.

3. Capture that feeling you had when you found out you were pregnant for the first time.

How happy were you when you found out you were carrying the love of your life's child? That is a key moment in life that you will want to remember for years to come. Have a personalized ornament made to display your due date. When your child grows up, how special will that be for them to see you chose to commemorate them coming into this world? Don't miss out on opportunities such as these.

Baby's 1st Christmas, Make the Memory!

There's nothing more special than your baby's first Christmas! This is something you'll want to remember for the rest of your life. Your baby's first Christmas is a great opportunity to start new family Christmas traditions. Your baby deserves his or her very own 1st Christmas ornament! In the true spirit of Christmas, Ornaments for Keeps would like to share a few tips to make your baby's first Christmas special and memorable.

Tips to Try for Your Baby's First Christmas

1. Have Fun With Your Holiday Cards

Take some cute pictures or consider hiring a photographer to take pictures of your baby and create your very own Christmas cards. Who doesn't love receiving a personalized Christmas card containing a photo of a cute newborn baby? This can be a great way to commemorate the memory of your baby's first Christmas.

2. Purchase Cute Christmas PJs

How cute would it be to have matching Christmas pajamas with your baby? This sounds like another great family Christmas tradition.

3. Choose Your Baby's First Christmas Stocking

It's your baby's first Christmas so every little detail can be part of a long time tradition starting for the first time. If you don't see a stocking you like for purchase, try making your own. That can be more fun anyway!

4. Visit Santa

Your baby's first trip to see Santa can be magical! This will be a moment you won't want to forget. You can even commemorate it by getting a personalized baby's first Christmas ornament in the shape of Santa.

5. Make Travel Easier On Yourself

When Christmas arrives, it can mean a lot of traveling for some people visiting loved ones for this marvelous holiday. Make traveling with a baby easy on yourself. Pack enough diapers, try packing one for every hour of travel. However, don't over pack on diapers and formula. This can make for heavy luggage and you don't want to weigh yourself down. Diapers and formula can be bought wherever you are traveling to.

6. Last But Not Least, Get Your Baby's 1st Christmas Tree Ornament

Ornaments for Keeps loves creating baby ornaments. We have a large variety of personalized baby ornaments. We also enjoy finding different types of personalized ornaments to offer you.
