The holidays can be the hardest times to be without our children. Empty chairs, missing giggles, and gifts that should have been weigh heavy on the hearts of parents whose little ones may have died this year. One thing that helps make them more bearable is to see their little ones’ names included. Whether they’re acknowledged in a Christmas card, a donation is made in their honor, or something special is given as a gift in memory of their children, seeing their names and knowing that they are remembered means so very much.
If someone you know has lost a child, letting them know that you’re thinking of their child and how hard this season can be is one of the kindest things you can do for them.
This year, I’m creating Their Names ornaments for people who would like to give something personalized with the name of a loved one who is missed.
Each ornament frame contains a hand-painted and lettered insert with the name(s) of the loved one and, if space permits, a short phrase (such as “always in our hearts” in the photo above).
The frames themselves will vary depending on availability, and may be silver, gold, or white, and oval, square, or rectangular. All will have the year (2016) and a red satin ribbon for hanging. They are all approximately 3″ in size.
The insert is customizable with background color, name, and phrase. Each personalized ornament is $10 + shipping.
To order, please submit the website form below and I will contact you via email with a PayPal invoice. Once your invoice is paid, I will begin work on your ornament and will have it completed within a week. I can then mail your ornament to you or directly to your recipient with gift wrap and a gift note, if you choose. Please submit one form for each ornament you would like to order.
To help ensure delivery by Christmas, I will be accepting orders until December 15, 2016.
