The Hallmark Company has been a part of our lives for well over 85 years. Hallmark produced their first figurines and ornaments within the 1973 Christmas era. Since 1973, there has been more than 8,000 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments created.
Every year their are a few ornaments that capture our heart. More than just decorations, Keepsake Ornaments capture the memories of the holidays, commemorating the events, relationships and interests that shape our lives throughout the years.
Capture this year’s moments, both big and small, with one of the new 2015 Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. Celebrate memorable milestones with “Baby’s First Christmas” and “Our Family.” Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Peanuts® Christmas special with four Peanuts® “Decking the Tree” Keepsake Ornaments. Add your favorite Disney’s Frozen trio to your tree, complete with Olaf, Anna and a singing Elsa.

Build anticipation for the season with “Countdown to Christmas Snowman Ornament.”
Without a doubt, the Christmas tree is the highlight and center point of our holiday festivities. Each year, I add a new Ornament or two to our decoration collection. Last year the COZY COUPE was added to our tree.
