As a tradition, a dear friend of mine hosts a wine Christmas party with exchange of Christmas ornaments. It is a really fun event with mostly close friends who appreciate superb food. Some people bring a new friend or family with them, so we also get to meet new and interesting people.

Last year I broke the rule by getting a stocking instead of a Christmas ornament as directed. Sometimes I just like to break the rule; it was mostly because the Christmas stocking was just so incredibly cute. This year I am going back to becoming a rule-abiding friend. And I am doing research on what Christmas ornaments would make a beautiful tree for my lovely friend.

My friend is a foodie, so all our friends tend to enjoy eating quite a bit. So I am gravitating toward food-related ornaments. Sur la table has the cutest handmade cooking and food related ornaments.

But many of them are moms with an appreciation of finer things in life. Really there are lots of selections. Here are some Christmas ornaments that are candidates. And while I am at it, I might just as well get a couple for myself!
