I purchase a Christmas ornament every year for each of my children that reflects something about them or an interest. When they move out they can take their ornaments with them to use on their own Christmas tree. I found the perfect one for my daughter this year (some years are easier than others).

Initially when I saw the post, before reading your narrative, I figured the ornament symbolized you since you are so crafty, but I can definitely see it fitting your daughter as well. I too used to do an ornament a year for each child, except in my case I would let them pick (made it easier on me relieved). The kids have moved out  but the ornaments are still boxed in this house, since neither one has chosen to decorate their own tree, yet. One of these days .....smile

I do love the idea of letting them pick it for themselves...I will do that next year.  It's getting harder as they age to find appropriate ones.  I'd buy them a table top tree and wrap their box of ornaments as a Christmas gift one year smile
