Today is FABULOUS MOM FRIDAY but instead of featuring a mother-run business like I usually do, I'm going to share a Christmas tradition that my mother started for my brother and me.

Every Christmas, she got us each our own ornament for the tree and labeled the year on the back.  When we were little, she'd pick it out for us and when we got older, we were allowed to choose our own.  We used to love to hang those ornaments every year and talk about where we got them and why we picked them out.  Now that I have a family of my own, I have the 30-some-odd ornaments (I'm not going to admit the actual number!) and use them on our tree.  I still buy a new ornament every year and I've started doing the same for my girls.

If you're looking for a fun ornament so you can start the same tradition with your little one, look no further than the personalized ones from Kiddliwink Kreations.

If you've just had a baby, the Baby's First Christmas ornaments would be perfect for you.

If you're expecting, the Mother & Parents-to-be strollers are adorable.

And there are plenty of other designs which can be personalized however you want.  From stockings:

And teddy bears:

To monkeys:

And airplanes:

Kiddliwink Kreations has something for everyone.  And all of these fantastic ornaments are less than $8!  At that price, they'd great holiday gifts too, which is why they're going on AFOMFT's Holiday Must Have List.

And you can win one of your own too!
