A fun way to collect Christmas ornaments is to start a 50 state one. Collectible state ornaments have the name and a map of each state along with its state bird and state flower. The designs are painted on white or clear glass balls and are individually packed for easy storage. They are available at this site and can be purchased individually.
If you prefer state ornaments that are a little more unique, why not choose ones with individual shapes? By going to Wall Drug, you can select ornaments in the shape of each particular state. These ornaments are made of metal with the state name across the bottom of them. Atop this, there are emblems of things that are unique to that particular state. Each one weighs around a half pound and costs around $5.00 which does not include shipping.
Other state ornaments may simply contain pictures of things unique to that state. Road maps and road signs are common decorations on many ornaments. The ornaments could also have the state flag, state motto, or simply the words “someone in …loves me”. Team logos that mention a particular state are also common.
State ornaments can be an ideal gift to give friends, relatives, or school teachers. They can also be fun to collect and display even when you don’t have a Christmas tree up. There are many styles and patterns to choose from, so it can be easy to collect ornaments from every state rather than only buying those from your home state.
