Christmas is a cheery time for everyone. I love getting gifts almost as much as giving gifts. I love seeing the look on everyone's face when they open the gift from me. Personalized gifts are the greatest. They're cheap and meaningful. If you're trying to save money this year like I am then making things to give is the perfect way to go.
I have a big family; three older sisters who are all married and have kids, which means Christmas time, I have to buy gifts for about 15 people and that's just my immediate family. Then I have to buy something for my fiance and his family. It just keeps going and going. Every year is getting harder to buy since our family keeps growing. This year I've decided to do something different. I'm making my gifts.

If you're making a personalized ornament for a child then you can use cute little stickers. I know my niece likes Hannah Montana so if I can find some of those stickers she'll love me forever. If you use a bell-like ornament like the one listed above then you can tie the ribbon through the little whole. It adds a little color and flavor.
Other ways to personalize an ornament for someone:
If you really want to save money and create your own personalized ornaments then you can reuse old CD's and make beaded CD ornaments. The more creative you are the more appreciative and special the ornament is going to be. Merry Christmas!
