Holiday Gift Guide: Ornaments with Love Review

Thank you Ornaments with Love for the ornament to help with this review

As we approach the upcoming Holiday season, Mama's Baby Cupcakes has teamed up with several companies we think would be a great fit to purchase/wear/give to others in the upcoming months. Thanks to each and every sponsor showcased in our Holiday Gift Guide, and if you see the cute button above then you know its Holiday approved!

Ornaments with Love is a company run by a family that has been in the retail gifts business for over 50 years. For the past 10 years, we have taken our experience and applied it to selling personalized Christmas ornaments in Connecticut and Washington, DC area malls, 5 years on the internet. You may have seen us in Tyson's Corner, Montgomery, Lakeforest or Trumbull Malls operating under the name Ornaments and More II.

Last October I posted my review of the snowman family ornament with three children. It was our first Christmas as a family of five and I loved the idea of capturing it with a great ornament we could look at for years to come. 

This Christmas we will have a new addition to the family, courtesy of Mya being due in early December, so I thought I would get the same Ornaments with Love Snowman Ornament as last year but with four children to show how we've grown from one Christmas to the next! 

This particular snowman ornament measures approximately 3x4" and made of resin. While the price is pretty high, if you go to the mall you'll pay the same amount for you'd what you'd get from Ornaments with Love INCLUDING shipping. 

One thing my husband really likes about these ornaments is the nice text. Just their little extra dots and such give it an extra pop. In the past with mall ornaments, we've had to ask them to erase and re-write several times do to smudges, misspellings, or names in the wrong place/order. 

Unless you purchase a huge order, shipping time is about 2 business days after your order. It then takes around 2-3 business days for USA shipping and then 6-10 business days for International shipping. 

Pricing is different for each ornament and multiple ornaments have options for larger families. 

My ornament was $12.95 + the $6.95 S&H so almost $20. 

I do think their shipping is a bit high, especially if you only order one ornament, but their S&H is a set price and you can order as little or as much as you want and pay the same amount. Once you hit $50 however, the shipping fee is waived for US residents!
