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.

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.

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.

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.
