It's the most wonderful time of the year, and we've rounded up the Best Picture Christmas Ornaments for 2020! But before we begin, what makes these ornaments so special?

Why Picture Christmas Ornaments?

A personalized Christmas ornament makes the perfect addition to your tree, but it also makes a great gift idea. Nothing beats a personalized gift, and what better gift at Christmas time than an ornament. Ornaments are used year after year, and they bring back memories when you see them hung on your tree.

When ornaments are personalized with a picture, a new factor is added. The recipient, or yourself, will remember the moment that ornament represents even more than if it was generic. A picture Christmas ornament is unique to you, there's nothing quite like it. You can add your favorite photos from the year and surprise your friends and family with a personalized gift that really didn't require much time and effort. Just grab a photo from their social media or even your phone, and you're good to go.

How do you choose the right picture?

When selecting the perfect picture for your Picture Christmas Ornament, think about the recipient and the quality of the photo you are choosing.

First, the recipient. Are you very close with the person you are gifting this ornament to? If so, you can choose more intimate photos, like photos of their children or pictures from their wedding. If the person you are gifting this picture ornament to is more of a distant friend, it might be better to choose a family photo or something more publicly shared on social media.

Next, consider the picture quality. The best pictures to submit for your picture Christmas ornament are high resolution images directly from your phone, camera, or computer. Pictures from social media still work great and will create a beautiful ornament, but the resolution is lower in those pictures so some of the details of the photo could be left out/more difficult to notice.
