Waterford Christmas Ornaments

Waterford Christmas ornaments capture the magic of the holiday season with unmatched beauty and elegance.

For more than 200 years Waterford Crystal has been perfecting the process of turning glass into art. Internationally recognized as the undisputed leader in the manufacture of premium quality stemware and collectibles, the firm is known for the purity of color and innovative design that sets the brand apart.

The holiday season is always celebrated with the introduction of new and exciting crystal designs, and this year some old favorites also make a reappearance.

12 Days of Christmas Series Returns

The "12 Days of Christmas" ornament series returns in 2009. Waterford first introduced the series in 1982, making one ornament in the series available each holiday season until all twelve of the ornaments had been featured and the series was complete.

In 2009 two of the series' ornaments, "Nine Ladies Dancing" and "Ten Lords A-Leaping" have been re-introduced and will be available through the year 2010, after which they will once again be retired to the Waterford Archives. This is an excellent opportunity to begin a collection or to thrill a crystal collector with a rare and hard to find addition.

The firm is also presenting a commemorative champagne bucket and footed cake plate/knife set in honor of the series in 2009. Both items feature the designs and patterns of the series.

A six-piece set of beautiful 12 Days of Christmas champagne flutes is also featured for the 2009 holiday season. Each flute includes a matching wine charm, and the entire set is packed in an elegant red gift box.

2009 Holiday Giftware

Collectors will be thrilled with the 2009 Holiday collection, which includes new versions of time-honored favorites like the annual angel and snowflake ornaments as well as innovative new designs.

Waterford Christmas ornaments are an ideal way to mark important years; for instance, the "2009 Our 1st Christmas Heart Ornament" is the perfect romantic gift. The "2009 Baby's First Christmas" edition, a miniature crystal baby bottle with a sterling top, is sure to become a treasured keepsake.
