Miniature Gurken Ornament

2 reviews

MSRP: $4.99

Long ago when parents decorated the Christmas tree, they hung the pickle ornament last, hiding it in the green boughs. When the children were allowed to view the tree, they would begin searching for the pickle ornament because they knew they would receive an extra gift for being the most observant.

My Grandmother started it with me by giving me my first pickle. I would put it on the tree every year. Then I had kids and the fun began I would hide it and have them find it. They would get a small gift when they found it, but the fun was just the finding it and who could find it first. They are grown now but the pickle still goes up every year and if they get to come home that year, they always go looking for it. It is still something they look forward to and so do I.

Hi Melanie- Oh yes, the beloved Pickle search, this Miniature Gurken must make it all the more challenging. We are so grateful to be a part of your cherished tradition, started by your grandmother and continuing today. .

perfect size for finding the pickle game

I have been looking for this size for years. Most pickles are too big for the find the pickle on the tree game. We have been playing this since my kids were born, they are now 28 and 32 yrs old. A favorite still. Every time you find the pickle, you get a small present to open, then you hide the pickle for the next person/guests. The rule is it has to be seen without moving any thing on the tree. gets better each year. We have people come to the house all during the holidays, just to find the pickle. I bought extra pickles this year as some of the pickle presents. Have fun and start your own tradition. The presents are as simple as a small flashlight or nice candy bar.

What to Get Your Husband For Christmas

What to Get Your Husband For Christmas

Husbands are hard to shop for. They deserve the best, but what to buy your husband for Christmas? It’s every wife’s dilemma. Obscure tools or trinkets they probably buy for themselves, clothes are either an insulting gift (clothes are boring!) or too hard to shop for (he only likes a certain brand and style!) and you’re left wondering “what could I possibly buy him this Christmas that he will know he is loved and appreciated?”
