The White House Ornament Collection 1946 - Present with the Years 1946 - 1990 Presently in Restoration and 1991 - 2017 Available Now


An on-duty member of Secret Service Uniformed Division placed the first White House Gift Shop Secret Service Unformed Division Series Ornament on the White House Christmas Tree decades ago with our very first ornament made in 1946 under the administration of President Harry S. Truman. Now, the collection is prized by discerning collectors, traders, and gift givers worldwide with two new ornaments added each year to the main collection. In 2017, we will restore the "lost years" from 1946 to 1990 which combined with the currently available ornaments from 1991 to 1997 will comprise the largest collection of its kind in White House history. Only two ornament collections of actual White House provenance (meaning the collections originated by presidential authority inside the White House) exist in White House history: The collection of the only Official and Original White House Gift Shop® Established 1946 by permanent Presidential Memorandum and members of U.S. Secret Service Uniformed Division following the assassination attempt on President Truman and the death of White House Police Officer, Leslie William Coffelt, who was killed outside of Blair House while defending Truman — is one of only two such collections in the history of the White House.
