Over the past few years my family has created a tradition of collecting snow globes as a way to memorialize certain days, events and holidays that have special meaning to us. Snow globes were the only thing that we all loved and could agree on. So, we started collecting them for every and any occasion. We keep them on display all year round and our collection is growing rapidly. I love that they are available for so many different events these days but my favorites are still the Christmas snow globes. The little snowy winter scenes just make me smile and when I hold one in my hands, I have fond memories of shaking them up to see it snow as a little girl on Christmas day. Thanks to Things Remembered, my family received a brand new snow globe to add to our collection this Christmas.
It’s the Make-A-Wish Snowman Snow Globe and Things Remembered donates $2 of the purchase price of each Make-A-Wish gift they sell to Make-A-Wish with a guaranteed minimum donation of $150,000. Approximately every 38 minutes, Make-A-Wish grants the wish of a child that has been diagnosed with a life threatening illness. They believe that making a wish come true can be a game changer and they grant wishes that are life changing for these kids. I have always been a supporter of Make-A-Wish and the wonderful things that they do for children, so I love that a portion of each purchase will be donated to them.
When it arrived, I was so happy to see how beautifully made it is. The base is silver and it has an oval plate that you can choose to have engraved with a personal sentiment or your family name. It feels sturdy, solid and well made; there’s nothing flimsy about it. The globe is also made of strong glass. Inside the globe, a small child stands on a little ladder to give a snowman a kiss. It is an adorable and very heartwarming scene.This is a very special, limited edition engraved Christmas snow globe and it is truly lovely. My kids loved it too and it plays Winter Wonderland which the whole family sang together to.
For a family that collects snow globes, this one is already a special one in our collection. It’s not only beautiful, but you can also tell it was designed with love and made with much care and attention to detail. This would look great above the fireplace or on a shelf or table. It makes a perfect decoration at Christmas time or all year round for collectors like us. It also makes a really special gift that just about any family would treasure. I strongly recommend the Make-A-Wish Snowman Snow Globe from Things Remembered for anyone. It will definitely put a smile on everyone’s face. At an affordable price with such great quality and detail, you simply can’t go wrong. My family has added it to our collection and we proudly display and have received multiple compliments on it.
