Find Your Christmas Ornaments at Ornament Shop Today! When decorating for the holidays, a beautiful Christmas tree is a must. And what does every Christmas tree need to be complete? Ornaments, of course! Whether your style is classic with white or multi-colored lights and metallic round ornaments, or you go all-in to support your favorite sports team, you'll need the right Christmas ornaments to match your theme.

One popular trend in Christmas ornaments is personalization: instead of a plain store-bought design, many shoppers prefer to have an ornament that reflects something about themselves or their loved ones. For example, some families have the tradition of giving each child in the family a new ornament every Christmas - perhaps a soccer ball in the year their team won the championship, or a graduation cap to commemorate finishing high school.

Pier 1 Imports is a household name when it comes to unique products for the home from around the world. With hundreds of retail locations throughout the US and Canada and a website for convenient shopping, it's easy to browse their collection of just over 250 Christmas ornaments.

If you're looking for personalization options, you're not going to find what you're looking for at Pier 1. We didn't see any ornaments that had a space for writing in a name or date on your own, and there were none that offered any kind of personalization prior to shipment. On the other hand, Pier 1 offers many ornaments at very affordable prices: simple jingle bells in gold, silver, or red for a dollar, red glitter ball ornaments for under $3, and several other options for decorating your tree on a budget. Other types of Christmas ornaments sold by Pier 1 include cloisonne patterns, European glass, and the exclusive Li Bien series that involves designs painted on the inside of the ornament by artists using an L-shaped brush.

To make your shopping even more affordable, Pier 1 does have special offers from time to time. On the day we reviewed the Pier 1 site, there was a pop-up offering a 10% discount for subscribing to their email list.

On the other hand, shipping can be spendy at Pier 1. While we spotted a "free shipping on orders of $49+" promo at the top of the page, regular shipping fees start at $5 for orders under $15 and go up from there.

Customers do like Pier 1's return options: you can return any purchase to a Pier 1 store within 45 days of purchase, or you can request a shipping label from their Customer Relations team. This is one of the most generous return policies in our review, mostly because none of the Christmas ornaments at Pier 1 are customized and thus non-refundable.

Overall, Pier 1 offers a small-but-sweet collection of Christmas ornaments, and returns are free and easy if for some reason your purchase is less than satisfactory.

For shoppers with German or Austrian ancestry who want to reconnect with their roots, The Christmas Sleigh has a lot to offer. Their ornament collection includes tiny diorama-like creations made inside a walnut shell, Austrian painted Christmas eggs, military ornaments and many other ornaments made in Europe.

The website itself is somewhat challenging to navigate. Unless you already have a specific idea of what you're looking for, you might have a hard time finding a Christmas ornament to match your wish list. For example, there is no way to sort through themes, colors, or even price ranges, and looking through what's available can be time-consuming. We saw everything from cardinals to Santa Claus and religious themes, but no way to choose just religious items or nature-themed ornaments. Also, many items were out of stock.

We also had a hard time determining details like shipping costs and return policies. We did see that most items we added to the cart came with a shipping fee of $7, but we didn't find anywhere on the site that gave a more specific list. We did find The Christmas Sleigh's return policy under the Customer Service heading, but we were confused by the wording: 10 days from when the customer receives the item or 14 days from when it was shipped. Also, refunds are issued strictly via check or PayPal, which seems both inconvenient and less professional than other retailers.

On a positive note, The Christmas Sleigh did maintain an "A+" rating with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our review. This leads us to believe that they are a reputable retailer of Christmas ornaments and other products, despite having a website without all of the bells and whistles you'd find with a more prominent store.

Being able to customize these ornaments with a name, date, or other details creates a keepsake to treasure well into the future. Unfortunately, shopping at big-box retailers and even mall kiosks can be a hassle. Fighting the holiday crowds in multiple stores while trying to find the perfect Christmas ornaments for your tree can leave you feeling more like a Scrooge than a Santa.

For this reason, today's shoppers frequently turn to online retailers to buy their Christmas ornaments, getting the very best selection and personalization options without ever having to leave home. What should you look for when deciding where to buy your Christmas ornaments? Consider these five criteria:

  • Selection. Does the store give you a wide variety of options to choose from, or just a handful of products in a limited range of styles and colors?
  • Price. Can you buy ornaments at affordable prices? Does the retailer offer any discounts, such as free shipping or a buy-one, get-one free promotion?
  • Quality. Are the ornaments made to last, or are they likely to break or fade after a few seasons on your tree? Are there any customer reviews provided on individual ornaments that can give you an idea of how well they are made?
  • +
  • Personalization. Can you add a name, date, or other message to the Christmas ornaments you choose?
  • Customer Service. Does the store have a good track record for keeping customers happy? What is their return policy and satisfaction guarantee?
