United States Military Annual Ornaments


The Collection of Choice by Discerning Collectors and Gift Givers Since 1946

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. Now, the collection is prized by discerning collectors, traders, and gift givers worldwide with two new ornaments and displays added each year to the main collection.

The White House Collection began in 1946 with a simple ball ornament which we will recreate in 2017. We have discovered from interviews with retired White House Gift Shop USSS volunteers, the concepts or plans for the "lost years" from 1946 to 1991 and will re-create the "lost years" in 2017 which makes The White House Annual Ornament Collection the largest collection of its kind in the world. Years available now include 1991 through the current year including the limited edition President Obama Commemorative and the President as Commander in Chief ornament which honors military service and the creation of the Purple Heart Medal entitled: George Washington, Order of the Purple Heart and the Liberation of Boston.

This year's main collection White House ornaments for 2016 (with two additional undated White House ornaments also available) are:


2016 —
George Washington: Order of the Purple Heart and the Liberation of Boston with Special White House Display Stand, Designed by Anthony Giannini, USAFR, Limited to 2500

2016 — President Obama East Room Signing Commemorative, Designed by Anthony Giannini, USAFR, Limited to 1500
