First Christmas Together: Ornaments & Gifts for Wedding, New Home and More

Celebrate your first Christmas together with personalized Christmas ornaments. | Ornament Shop

After 49 years of marriage, each year I find myself fondly reflecting back on our First Christmas together.

I love recommending ornaments for other couples’ first Christmas together because it reminds me of all the wonderful times I’ve had in my own relationship. Christmas ornaments are meant to celebrate your most loving year-round memories, so having your first Christmas together is a big deal!

When we had our first Christmas, my husband and I created a tree full of childhood and shared memories. Our tree was eclectic, but together it was ours. It allowed us to each have a piece of our past, and was the first compromise of our marriage.

Build The Story Of “Our First Christmas Together”

Our first Christmas tree embodied who we were as a couple. Yours can, too!

Think back to your first experiences together. This could be your first date, your first trip together, or your first pet together. Combine your two pasts with the new, shared life.

Find personalized Christmas ornaments to help you tell your unique story. For example, if your first date was to a movie theater, this adorable ornament might be just the ticket! You could also have memories of hiking, seeing landmarks or eating unique food together.
