2016 White House Ornament

President Barack Obama & The East Room Signing

On Christmas Eve, decades ago, an active-duty officer of the Uniformed Division of U.S. Secret Service placed the official ornament of The White House Gift Shop on the White House Blue Room Christmas Tree. Now, three-quarters of a century later, The White House Gift Shop annual ornaments are collected, gifted, traded, and prized globally. Our earliest ornament was made in 1946 under the administration of President Truman. Ornament years available now include 1991 - 2016 with the lost years based on recollections of Secret Service Uniformed Division retired officers and White House photographs from 1946 - 1990 in limited edition restoration for 2017 which will make The White House Gift Shop, Est. 1946 official collection continuous for 70+ years and the largest collection of its kind in White House history! In 2017, we will create and issue a second commemorative of the President Obama series within the collection as well as a special edition commemorative honoring the Administration of President Bill Clinton.

These ornaments are beautiful and the details and quality is better than what I expected. This is my first time ordering online from The White House Gift Shop. I received confirmation emails for my purchases and shipping status information. The ornaments arrived before the quoted delivery date, which I was very pleased with the service that had been provided. We will enjoy these beautiful ornaments for many years to come and will pass them down to family members as heirloom gifts.

MY SISTER KAYEJanuary 5, 2016
Reviewer: Paula Ferrara from Westbrook, CT United States
I was so happy to receive this year's ornament as a surprise from my husband. My sister Kaye, who passed away this November, made a tradition of ordering and presenting me with one of your ornaments each year. I miss her sorely but the sadness if leavened a little by having these on our tree including the 2016 edition.

Reviewer: Ina Mitchell from Owasso, OK United States
This is a timeless piece I will sure pass it down through generation in my family. It everything you said it would be.

ORNAMENT ORDERDecember 19, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Germantown, MD United States
Usually I make a trek to the store, taking the Metro and dealing with all "fun" using the Red Line has to offer. This year ordering online made getting the ornaments a joy. Even though I waited too long and 2015 was not available, the 2016 is beautiful and will do just fine. The process was easy and the delivery was faster than expected.

Reviewer: Regina Im from Lansing, KS United States
Another incredible ornament. We've been collecting since we were stationed in the MDW in 2001. Now we have one holiday tree every year dedicated just to White House and National Treasure Ornaments. Our holiday guests are always most impressed with the quality of the White House Collections.

5 of 5 2016 White House/Obama Commemorative Ornament July 2, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Moraga, CA United States  
The 2016 Ornament is beautiful and elegant, something that will bring meaningful memories and proud feelings for a wonderful time in our nation's history.  The committee chose well re: the moment highlighted on the ornament - my only regret is that the figures aren't a bit larger.

5 of 5 Beautiful ornament March 18, 2017
Reviewer: Kadijah Ray from South Barrington, IL United States  
Beautiful collector's item. Fast shipping. I just wish there had been a prompt that the Buyer's name shows on the certificate of authentication. I bought one as a gift and my name is on the certificate.

5 of 5 Exquisite Keepsake! February 24, 2017
Reviewer: Lily from Brooklyn, NY United States  
I was blown away with how beautiful this Christmas ornament is.  Needless to say, I am very glad I purchased it for my family tree. Especially since it commemorates one of President Obama's signature accomplishments , The Afforable Care Act.
