Ethnic First Day of School Boy Christmas Ornament

Personalized Christmas Ornament

The words 1ST DAY OF SCHOOL are permanently on the white board that he is holding in his hands. We can personalize his blue baseball hat with a name and the board can have the name of his elementary school or middle school on it.

Designate the Year

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


Now you can get this ornament gift wrapped with a personalized gift card attached! Or, if you just need to let that special someone know who the gift is from, choose the personalized gift card option!

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.

Ornaments shown on our site are personalized, as examples only, so you can see where we put the words/names you give us. Some ornaments allow you to select hair or uniform color. If there is no color choice, it is not available on that particular ornament. We will do everything possible to catch any mistakes in spelling, etc., but are not responsible if we do as you request, and it is then not correct. The ornament you see above is the way it will look when you get it, except for the personalizing instructions you give us and any optional attributes you select.
I am committed to delivering our customers the greatest selection of unique, personalized Christmas ornaments and gifts on the internet! We have over 5000 Christmas ornaments to choose from, each personalized with a name or special greeting from you!

8/31/2015 - "Love the selection of ornaments. I was able to buy my family yearly ornaments all in one place. Renee Y."

6/30/2015 - "A personalized gift is special and shows great appreciation of someone you care about. Pennye R."

11/11/2015 - "To Your Entire Staff: THANK YOU! May I just say I am blown away by your service. I placed this order at the end of last week and all the information on your site suggested it might take 2-5 days to ship, not on weekends, and then another 2-5 days via USPS to arrive. It arrived today. And it could not have come at a better time for me personally, as it is a gift for my wife who really needed the pick me up (this item is very reminiscent of something she had as a child). The speed with which you processed and got my order to USPS is simply amazing, and while I do not do a lot of OrnamentShop item-related purchasing, come this holiday season I am thinking about doing ALL of my shopping with your web-store because you are simply that amazing. So please, tell your entire staff they are doing an amazing job and just made the day/week/probably month of a very nice lady who really needed it. They also made me a very happy man as well. Keep doing what you are doing, you are all great! Thanks so much. Dan C"

5/21/2015 - "Today, I received the ten Christmas ornaments I ordered from you to give to my granddaughter. They are all representative of the children's books that I write and illustrate for her (just for her--I don't sell them). I can't tell you how thrilled I am with the quality of the ornaments. Everyone of them exceeded my expectations. I especially like the "cow jumping over the moon"--it's gorgeous. This particular book I'm writing right now is about a little boy who amusement park ride (rocket ship), lets loose, and he soars into space and becomes a little astronaut who is befriended by two little aliens. They have fun in space, joining the cow jumping over the moon, etc. That is why I ordered an astronaut, space ship, rocket ship, etc. to give to her when I give her the book. My friends can't believe you sell all these unusual quality ornaments. I wrote a book for her last year about an American girl who goes to visit her cousin in Ireland, and they set out to capture a leprechaun and be granted three wishes. It was such a coincidence that part of the story takes place in a mushroom house which is almost identical to the mushroom ornament that was in this order. That is why I requested "2014" be written on it. I also want to say that the personalization is beautiful and the packaging was perfect. They arrived all intact. Now, I'm sure I'll never package them to send to her like I received them, but I'll do my best. I live in Florida, and she lives in CT. I hope one day they will be passed down to her children. Again, thank you, thank you, thank you...I'm thrilled. Regards,Bernice S."

7/15/2015 - "Delighted with selection and ability to personalize items. Packaging looks nice where applicable. Easy to use site, cost of items appropriate considering personalization. Really looking forward to receiving items. Joan R."

9/8/2015 - "I have ordered personalized ornaments from for gifts every year for many years and have always been satisfied. I will continue to purchase from them because I've always been pleased with the merchandise and the service. Virginia F."

5/23/2015 - "This is my 5th or 6th year of ordering your wonderful christmas ornaments. Denise G."

4/4/2015 - "I purchased 27 ornaments for family and friends for Christmas last the shop and will be back as it gets closer to Christmas again. Great products. Jill J."

5/24/2015 - "I do all my ornament shopping at OrnamentShop and have for a number of years now. I am 94 years of age and hope I will be ordering next year. Ann Z."
