Whether you’re looking for tradition or fun, here are 10 inspiring themes for your Christmas ornaments. Fair trade Christmas ornaments represent time-honored traditions and cultures, while providing a sustainable income for artisans around the world.
1. Feliz Navidad Tree
2. Animal House Tree
We all love our furry friends. This tree celebrates all the creatures that you hold near and dear. Shop for everything from monkeys to elephants to lions!
Use a bell themed tree to “ring” in the holidays and new year. Hand-blown glass from Nepal, paper bells from Vietnam, or swirled Phoenician glass from the West Bank are all festive decorations.
4. Upcycled Tree
Take a look at the creative uses our artisans have for everything from nuts and bolts to orange peels. Show your love for the earth by bringing them into your home decor to celebrate an environmentally friendly holiday season.
5. African Tree
From Zimbabwe to South Africa, join artisans in celebration of African culture. The Maasai Woman & Child Ornament, Gecko Ornament and Guardian Angel Ornament represent just a sample of the rich cultural history of the African continent.
6. Classic Tree
For those who like to keep it classic, choose from some of our longtime favorites to create a Traditional Tree. Classics like the Bright Holidays Ornament Ball, Cozy Felt Stocking and Snow Song Ornament bring the magic of Christmas to life.
7. Partridge in a Pear Tree
Honor the classics with a festive bird tree. From owls to swans, all of our winged friends deserve their place in the sun… or the glow of twinkling lights.
8. White Christmas Tree
Even in the warmer climates, everyone dreams of snow at the holidays. Why not add it to your tree to guarantee a White Christmas? A snowflake, white nativity scene or even a fun white yeti ornament will give your tree that special snowy touch.
9. Sparkle and Shine Tree
For those who need a little glitz in your life, this tree will give you some shiny indulgences. Artisans work with a variety of materials including hand blown glass, silver-plated copper and filigree brass and to add that special shine to your tree.
10. Peace on Earth Tree
Especially at the holidays, we are reminded how truly important peace is to our world. The Peaceful Holidays Ornament from South Africa, Olive Branch Dove Ornament from the Philippines and Peace Dove Ornament from the West Bank are just three examples of the beautiful work that comes out of areas in turmoil. These simple ornaments can help create unity in your home and in our world.
