I have been ordering from Crystal Shoppe since the 1980's. Every new addition to the family gets an crystal ornament with their name on it. If one breaks a replacement is ordered right away. Wedding, Babies no matter the event they get a Crystal Shoppe item personally engraved.
I began ordering my Christmas ornaments for my family in the early 90's... It's 2016 and My Christmas tree is not only gorgeous, full of memories. The first years I didn't have the years put on the ornaments, but I started and it's excited to reflect on where we lived (Florida, Texas, New Jersey or Georgia), the things we did during that year. My children are in college now and one day they will have their own home and family. What a beautiful gift to give them on their first Christmas in their new home. But until then... I'll continue collecting each year new memories.
It would be nice to get free shipping... The shipping is very expensive. I don't live near the shoppe, so I have to order each year.
