Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments have been making memories to last a lifetime since their debut more than 40 years ago. The first release in 1973 of Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments featured six glass ball ornaments and 12 yarn figures which were all unique in their designs, dated, and available for a limited time. It is this innovation that paved the way for the success of the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Collection. Since the first release, Hallmark has introduced more than 8,000 keepsakes in more than 100 different series (collection of ornaments with the same theme).
Some people purchase Keepsakes as gifts because they love the design – or know someone on their list will. For others, the series have become highly collectible. The longest running series to date, Frosty Friends, made its debut in 1980, featuring a fun and friendly Eskimo and his winter pals. Many series have grown to encompass infamous characters from Disney, Peanuts and more.
In addition to the series, there are hundreds of other ornaments released each year for a variety of occasions with a variety of themes. The Hallmark Everyday Keepsake Ornament collection celebrates life’s non-holiday moments big and small. From Birthdays to Graduations, from New Homes to New Babies, there is an Everyday Keepsake for just about any occasion. Each year, the line continues to grow.
The broad selection of Keepsakes sets them apart from all other ornament manufacturers. Hallmark Keepsakes are not just about decorating a tree, but about telling a story and capturing life’s memories. Because of their popularity, Hallmark now releases hundreds of ornaments each year with some featuring well known characters, lights, sound and movement. Today’s Keepsake Collection has grown well beyond glass balls and yarn; Keepsakes today are made of acrylic, bone china, resin, glass, porcelain and wood.
