Perfect for my Boy Scout who earned his Chess Merit Badge!
I've never seen a chess ornament before and it fit just perfect.
Finding a chess ornament is not as easy as others and this one is a winner. Nicely made and very cute!
There are not many chess ornaments to choose from. My son loved this!
This gift was well-received. The receiver tutors our son in chess, and this gift was perfect. He loved it!

Checkmate! This shield shaped ornament depicts the black and white squares of a chessboard and three chess pieces. The white chess pieces shown are the knight, king and bishop. Chess enthusiasts study the game and learn the methods of sacrificing pieces to attack and win the game that has been around since the 6th century. This game is popular all over the world and before the internet, people often played games by mail, posting one move at a time, anxiously waiting for the post office to deliver their opponent's position. Chess tournaments are still played even though computers have replaced the need for an opposing player, and a computer even beat a chess world champion in 1997!
Putting the year on an ornament nicely commemorates your special gift. If you want the year included, & there’s no box showing where we’d place it on the front of the ornament, use the drop down box and select the year. We’ll add it on the front if possible; otherwise we'll put it on the back
Price tags will be removed, gift will be wrapped with a hand-written card added. If it’s to be shipped to a separate address, we will ask you for it during checkout.
We personalize your ornament just the way you request, so please carefully review your information. Once your order is placed, we are unable to cancel, change personalization, combine orders or make exchanges.
11/12/2013 -"I received my ornament in an exceptionally quick amount of time. It was even better than I could have hoped. I had emailed the company prior to ordering because I wanted to see if my pet could be added to the ornament since it was not in the ornaments listed with the pet option. I got a quick response letting me know they are willing to help and making me feel like they care about their customers. I had my heart set on the little family in the bed because weekend mornings before starting our day my toddler and dog will come in and we all snuggle for a little while. In those precious moments I feel everything is right and complete with the world. I felt like that particular ornament expressed that feeling best at this time. Will purchase from here from now on.

10/8/2013 -"The ornaments that I ordered just a couple of days ago have arrived. I order every year, and am always so pleased. This year is no exception. They seem bigger than what I expected, but that's fine. I didn't expect the little ballerina to have a net tutu! And the 'You're always in our hearts" ornament almost brought a tear to my eye. I hope my daughter-in-law thinks the same. Thank you. Thank you. They're all wonderful!!! The grand kids look forward to them every year "When do we get to have the ornaments???" Elizabeth P."
Just a quick note. You may recall my order, all the "State Troopers" and few office worker ornaments. The Trooper ornaments went over very well, I would tell you that one of the ladies with the figure in front of a computer, actually cried and we were not sure if they were tears of joy or sadness. Luckily they were for joy, and she said she had never gotten such a lovely gift before. So, your ornaments were a success for many Troopers and staff with the Florida Highway Patrol.

8/8/2014 -"I have been purchasing Christmas ornaments for my grandchildren for about 4 years. They have been very happy with my choices. I try to select items that go along with what their life/interests/occupations are. They range in ages from 11 to 27. I have purchased ornaments each year since they were born. I only wish that I had found Ornament Shop many years earlier, it would have made my shopping much easier and the selections much better (and sometimes cheaper!) Can't remember just how I found the shop, but am very happy that I did. Ann F."
