When it comes to the holiday season, everyone brings their own traditions to the table. And when it comes to holiday decor, we’re always ready for a new idea…especially if it’s from Joanna Gaines. The former Fixer Upper designer just shared a family Christmas tradition on her blog that’s easy enough for anyone to copy at home.

Each year, she gives Chip and their kids a new ornament for their tree. And according to Joanna, she actually got the idea from her mother-in-law. (Can you believe?) She wrote, “Chip’s mom started a fun tradition when we first got married, where she would give all of us an ornament at Thanksgiving. I loved it so much that I started something similar. Every holiday season, I get Chip and the kids an ornament that goes along with a memory from that year. I write their name and the date on the bottom, so as they get older, each one of them has a little collection that’s all their own.”

Cute, right? And it makes the somewhat daunting task of hanging up those ornaments *that* much more special.

And here you thought it was going to be shiplap.
