Angel ornaments are hugely popular for Christmas 2012. Gold angel ornaments are by far the most popular. When I say gold, I really should say gold-plated or gold-toned. I don't think that there are too many of us that can afford 14K gold angel ornaments! Not surprisingly silver angel ornaments are the second most popular. Folk artists, such as Jim Shore, have also common strong in recent years. Their primitive designs are giving many Christmas trees a home-spun allure. If you love the way crystal ornaments reflect your Xmas tree lights, then be sure to check out Swarovski angel ornaments.

Check out the amazing gold angel ornaments available on ebay. I love buying ornaments there because of the huge selection that includes both antique and vintage items. When I include vintage ornaments on my Christmas tree or Xmas wreaths, it makes it look like I've been collecting ornaments for ages. I'm lucky enough to have been given a lot of the Christmas ornaments that my grandmothers loved to include on their Christmas trees. But I'm so nervous about breaking or losing them, that I've got special small tabletop Christmas trees where I can showcase them. My ebay vintage ornaments are on the main tree. If my cats (Chaos and Busy Body) happen to successfully swat at them, it's no big deal.
Gold shines like no other metal and I love the warm glow it provides as it reflects Christmas lights and the flames from the fireplace. If you're just starting out and this is your first Christmas tree, I'd really recommend buying a few golden ornaments.
While gold ornaments might be too much for your budget, sterling silver angel ornaments might be a possible choice when you want to celebrate a special event. Angels can represent so many happy occasions that you can use them to welcome a new baby into the world or just say thank you to a good friend for always being there when you need her.
Ebay sellers generally have a fantastic selection of sterling silver ornaments, many of which came from estate sales. I've often seen luxe brands such as Gorham, Reed & Barton, RM Trush, and Wallace. Shopping on ebay is a lot like checking out tag sales and auctions, you just never know the prized items that you'll find at a great price.
Sterling silver ornaments will give your Christmas tree a very special shimmer.

From the time I was just a little girl, my Aunt Madison (yes my family likes to name girls after US presidents, no I don't know why.) has given me a Waterford ornament every year. I just love them. My Christmas tree is all glass ornaments and white lights. She lives in Oregon, as far away as she can be from me in Maine. But when that little package arrives, I feel like she's here celebrating the Christmas season with me.

Don't forget to check out the LED Praying Angel Ornament shown above. It slowly changes color seven times while you're sitting looking at your Christmas tree. It would be a perfect addition to your front door Christmas wreath. Especially effective if you don't use outdoor Christmas lights. A very impressive way to greet Christmas or New Year's Eve guests. Speaking holiday guests - don't you just love it when people show up with gifts for you. People that you don't normally exchange gifts with. I know that according to etiquette experts, we are under no obligation to reciprocate. That doesn't stop some of us, like me, from feeling a little foolish and awkward. So I've learned to have items on hand that I can give as quick gifts. Christmas ornaments are one of these items. (I also stock gourmet pestos and other gourmet treats). I can throw together an impressive gourmet gift basket, put an ornament on top with the card, in under 5 minutes in the pantry. If no one comes with an unexpected gift, I just use the items and ornaments.
