As a firsttime grandma, I wanted to get a "First Christmas" ornament for my new grandaughter Meara. Something sweet and unpretentious as a special ornament from Nana. This ornament is perfect for that. She is a sort of honey blond and I was going to buy the blonde one. Fortunately, the picture showed me that "blonde" was almost white and "brunette" was more the shade I wanted (it really fits most blondes best). It turned out perfect and her mom & dad love it.
