‘Tis the season for ornament shopping! As we head into the holiday season, many newlyweds will begin their search for “first Christmas ornament” designs to celebrate their love. From classic acrylic to custom carvings, here are some of our favorite first Christmas ornament ideas for newlyweds this year.
For couples who hosted a rustic-themed wedding or simply love the outdoors, a wooden design is a must for your first Christmas ornament together. There’s a variety of styles to choose from, such as a round log slice with custom engraving or a design carved out of wood. You can also customize it even further with your names or wedding date in the wood as well.
Acrylic ornaments have remained as one of the more popular ornament designs throughout the years. Both classic and romantic, acrylic ornaments allow you full creativity with your design. Keep it simple with a timeless calligraphy script with your preferred personalization, or add some extra flair with an elegant engraving or etching.
One of our favorite first Christmas ornament ideas for newlyweds is customizing the design to truly make it your own. Personalizations can include your names, initials, wedding date, or even a phrase such as “Our First Christmas Together”. You can also add details that were unique to your special day such as a summer wedding or an elopement.
Remember your wedding day for years and years to come by including a photo of you and your partner in your first Christmas ornament. Couples can opt for a seasonal ornament theme such as a photo enclosed in a small sphere of snow, or a more modern and timeless design such as a minimalist frame with your favorite wedding photo.
