Christmas baubles with names on

I usually try to get a different bauble each year with Grandkids name on but for the past few years there is one that eludes me. The name Mary is not to be found anywhere which is surprising as she was the mother of Jesus & it is Christmas.

Google Personalised Christmas Ornaments (or Christmas Baubles) . There are several results inc ‘Not on the high street’ & Amazon.

Perhaps Mary is so popular they sell out quickly :-D

Perhaps you could paint the name Mary on a bauble.

That would make it extra special.

This year I bought grandchildren's initials from M & S. There was a choice of styles.

Every year I fasten a bauble around the tape on their presents. Their stock has built up from the 'Baby's first Christmas' bauble.

In addition, for close family adults, I have bought jute bags with a winter scene to pop their presents into - only used bright red tissue paper around any bottles. The bags come in handy and last a long time.

Thanks very much for all your ideas. I like the idea of painting the name on a bauble.

You can write your own name/message (type this in before adding to your basket) on these and they are cheap as chips!

Orders under £20 normally have a delivery cost but you could shop around for other gifts
