Christmas Central Review

To help you find the Best Christmas Ornament Stores, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth Christmas Central Review.

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.

From Christmas decorations to home decor and outdoor living products, Christmas Central wants to be your one-stop shop for your decorating needs. With almost 40 years of experience as a retailer, this family owned-and-operated division of Gordon Companies Inc. has been featured in HGTV Magazine, Better Homes and Gardens, and more.

The main page for Christmas ornaments at Christmas Central is very basic: see all available ornaments, sorted by name or price, or choose one of the more than 40 themes listed on the left-hand side of the page. These themes include TV and Movies, Occupations, Icicles, and Old World Christmas, along with featured brands like Mark Roberts and Neqwa. Beneath the list of themes, you can also find options for filtering the results by color, collection, size, material, and features, among others. It also says that ornaments can be sorted according to highest customer reviews, but we didn't find any evidence of such reviews in the descriptions of the ornaments themselves. We would have liked to see customer comments on the products, to get an idea of the quality and durability of the ornaments for sale.

While Christmas Central does carry ornaments that can be personalized, such as Baby's 1st Christmas or "Welcome Home, Soldier" styles, they do not offer the personalization service itself. You'll need your own marker and a steady hand to enter the information yourself.

Christmas Central allows customers to return products within 30 days of receipt - or before December 25th, whichever comes first. That could get tricky when things get crazy around the holidays, so it's important to keep an eye on the calendar if there's any possibility that you might want to return your purchase. Also, free shipping on the return is only offered for customers who are requesting a store credit rather than a refund; if you prefer to get your money back, be prepared to pay the return shipping costs.

While we were pleased to see that Christmas Central had an "A" rating with the Better Business Bureau at the time of our review, we found many reviews - even on the BBB site - indicating significant concerns with customer service. Common complaints include poor quality or defective products and difficulties in getting a refund in those cases, slow shipping or inaccurate information regarding product delivery, and lackluster responses from customer service representatives for customers looking to get help. Especially given that orders received in December have to be returned before Christmas in order to get a refund or store credit, those slow responses can be a big problem for holiday shoppers.

In general, Christmas Central has a large variety of ornaments at affordable prices, but customers may experience some issues with product quality and customer service.

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best Christmas Ornament stores available online. We hope these reviews help you find the perfect decorations for your Christmas tree at the best possible price!
