It's not required that you live in a log cabin to appreciate moose ornaments on your Christmas tree. Once seen only in the forests of the great northwest, as I live and breathe, it would seem that the wild moose is becoming an urban fixture. Even the rather formal, stodgy Lenox line of
collectible ornaments
and decorations gets into the holiday spirit in a big way with fun moose gifts aimed toward skiers, ice skaters, bikers and babies.

As with most of their ornaments, Lenox releases a new moose design each year that has a catchy, funny name. The great thing about giving collectibles for Christmas gifts is that it takes a lot of the difficulty out of coming up with Christmas gift ideas for the kids, adults or even the newborns on your Christmas list.

The 2008
Lenox Christmas ornament
is a figurine called Moosey Mishap that is a white moose that has obviously gotten himself into a bit of a jam. There is a red and white Santa Claus hat hanging on for dear life in between his antlers and several strands of electric, multi-colored Christmas lights draped from his head to his tail. If you wonder how he came to be decorated in such a whimsical fashion, perhaps it would be advisable to take notice of the fact that he may have encountered someone’s home Christmas display while trying out his new snow skis.


So, the Lenox moose ornaments caught your eye and you are wondering who might appreciate finding this cute collectible in the toe of their Christmas stocking or wrapped in a pretty box with a bow under the Christmas tree. Here are some suggestions:


The Lenox moose is a precious keepsake that may even increase in value. But those are not the only kind of moose that you can use to decorate your tree. There are plush moose ornaments by Boyd’s that are stuffed moose with angel wings if you can imagine such a thing. Then there are some cute red, green and gold Christmas balls with a small moose figurine hanging onto the top of the ornament for deer life. And we can always count on Hallmark, Radco, Enesco and Department 56 to have some funny and charming ornaments to share every holiday season that rolls around.

Regardless of what your friend’s personality or color preference, they will find a moose ornament a fun gift that will add lots of pizzazz to their holiday decorations.
