Every December, we look forward to three things: putting wreaths on our front doors, hanging our stockings with care and trimming our trees with ornaments, ornaments and more ornaments. (And okay, maybe draping some string lights and glittery garlands, but then definitely more ornaments.)

We just can't help ourselves! For being so small, ornaments carry so much significance. They remind us of places we've been or lived, major milestones we've reached, our loved ones, etc. So, we don't mind squeezing in one (or ten) more of these special mementos where we can. If you're looking for some new pieces to help personalize your tree this year, then keep reading to see all the beautiful baubles we've found for just the occasion.

Even if you can't be "home" for the holidays, you can keep your loved ones close with this state-shaped ornament. Fashioned from modern acrylic and featuring a pretty wash of pastel pinks and blues, this piece will look perfect in the glow of your Christmas tree lights.
