What Makes Mini Ornaments so Popular

Old World Christmas ornaments stand out on every full-size Christmas tree. Their bright colors, thoughtful themes, and hints of glitter make our ornaments delight at Christmas. However, sometimes mini ornaments are the perfect solution for apartment-sized trees, they make great gifts, and they blend right in with your full-size Christmas ornaments.

Mini Ornaments are the Perfect Size

It’s easy to assume all people head to the Christmas tree lot and select a 5-foot to 8-foot tree, but many don’t. Many apartment dwellers opt for the 1-to-2-foot table-top Christmas tree. A smaller-sized tree fits better into small spaces, making it a flexible option for maximum celebration in less square footage. But, full-sized ornaments weigh down a pint-sized tree. Mini ornaments are the perfect solution, but great mini ornaments are hard to find. So many mini ornaments tend towards cheap and cheesy rather than beautiful and sophisticated. However, it’s not the case with Old World Christmas mini ornaments. Our mini ornaments are perfectly proportioned for mini trees, and they don’t lack in beauty and sophistication. They are the exact replica of our full-sized ornaments, just shrunk down to mini size. They give the same beautiful effect to the mini tree as full-sized ornaments give to a full-sized tree. 

Mini Ornaments are the Perfect Gift

Our mini ornaments are popular because they make perfect gifts. Some of our mini-ornament sets come safely packaged in a keepsake box for safe keeping when they’re not in use. Others are sold as individuals, and still come individually boxed in a giftable box. Both the mini ornament sets and the individually boxed ornaments are simple to ship, and a happy gift to receive. Old World Christmas has so many choices, it will be easy to pick out the best set of mini ornaments for your loved one. We have choices for sports lovers, bird fans, beachcombers, dessert connoisseurs, gardeners, forest dwellers, and more. Even though we’re partial to Christmas, we don’t discriminate against any holiday. For the Halloween fan, we have a mini-ornament set perfectly sized for a ghoulish mini Halloween tree. 


Mini Ornaments are Cute

There’s something about smaller-sized items that are just plain cute. Our full-sized ornaments are crowd pleasers, but in mini form, they really delight. Mini ornaments don’t have to be exclusive to Christmas trees. Strung on a ribbon, mini ornaments would make a beautiful garland. Arranged in a clear glass vase, mini ornaments would make a beautiful centerpiece. Mini ornaments, mixed in with your full-sized ornament collection, add visual variety. Decorating for the seasons—not just the holiday season—becomes easy with a few mini ornament collections. With spring, summer, fall, and winter collection, a table-top, a mini tree is easy to decorate and easy to display. 

Don’t get us wrong, we’re huge fans of our full-sized ornaments. We love them. And, we recognize that mini ornaments are a necessary solution for the Christmas ornament connoisseur. We enjoy both sizes but love the minis. We think you will too.
