Christmas Ornaments

Panda Ornement at AJPanda.comToday I wanted to highlight a great category that is very seasonal… Christmas Ornaments. We have a really fantastic selection this year, and we are very excited about the quality of these items. These are not the thin, run-of-the-mill globes you find at your local department store; they are a hearty thick glass and the designs and colors are brilliant and beautiful. Plus they all come in a nice gift box, which is also perfect for safe storage when the season is over.

In fact, if anyone is debating on whether to purchase one of our ornaments, I will personally guarantee your satisfaction or we will gladly provide a refund. (And if you are on the fence, we’d love to know what is holding you back!)

On a personal note, we have several of these ornaments on the tree at our house. In fact, I let each of my daughters pick their favorite. (AnMei picked the Dragon Dance Ornament and JiaLi picked the Panda Glass Ornament.) They were very excited to hang their ornaments on the tree and, as 3-year olds are prone to do, they were also eager to re-arrange them every few hours.

We hadn’t gone a full day and I heard the ill-fated sound of a breaking ornament. When I went in to check poor JiaLi was heart-broken as she looked at the shattered Panda ornament between her feet. I scooped her up and told her that we can replace it and everything would be OK.

When I brought the new ornament home the next night the girls were quick to point out that we should probably put the “special” AJ Panda ornaments higher up the tree so they wouldn’t be so tempted to re-arrange them all time. Smart little girls!
