Top 10 Best Selling Christmas Ornaments

Updated on December 5, 2012

Every Christmas, we either buy new ornaments, or get the box out of the attic and look forward to decorating our houses in tinsel and pretty colors, and all sorts of seasonal baubles that brighten up our homes.

Christmas ornaments make great gifts too. If you are going out to visit a relative or a friend, what is more cheery than a new ornament for them to admire year after year?

Tis the season of Goodwill, and that little act of kindness will be rewarded year after year with kind memories and thoughts, each time the Christmas decorations and ornaments are brought out.

Perhaps you need a helping hand in deciding which ornaments you might like to buy this Christmas?

I have put together a top 10 best selling list of all the top ornaments sold by Amazon.com.

1 Dozen Let It Snow Christmas Holiday Ball Ornaments

Let It Snow Christmas Holiday Ball Ornaments

This is a wonderful set of 12 unbreakable Christmas tree ornaments that are white with a picture of a snowman or snowmen on them.

They might not seem like much to you while sitting in the box, but once up on a tree they look GREAT!

Made from polyfoam and paper, they are obviously not for playing with, so keep them out of reach of children, especially small children, but the nice thing is that should they fall or get knocked off the tree, there is no sharp bits to clear up, as they don't break.

Wonderful.

They also come with string attacked to make them easy to hang up on the tree.

And they depict a beautiful winter scene which is especially nice if you live in an area that doesn't actually get snow at Christmas.

These ornaments come in a beautiful presentation box which makes them a great gift, or if they are for you, easy to tidy away for next year when the season is over.

They are slender and crystal clear icicles, but not so delicate that you can't handle them for fear of breaking them.

Sterling 100200 Ornament Hangers

Ornament Hangers

Now admit it, who doesn't have to buy new ornament hangers year after year?

No matter how carefully you take the ornaments down from the tree and pack them away for another year, you always seem to find them missing, or at last drastically reduced in numbers the following year.

I think ornament hangers are like socks that go missing in the wash, except of course, we don't put ornament hangers in the washing machine!
