About the ornament

  • President Ford was our first unelected President. He began his presidency in 1974, during period of economic uncertainty and high inflation following the energy crisis of 1973. Therefore, the First Lady decided to decorate their 1974 Christmas tree with handmade toys and ornaments. In 1975, they again wanted to decorate their tree in a thrifty manner. They choose pinecones, popcorn and other items that were inexpensive, yet fun.
  • The 2023 ornament is a great way to celebrate the "thrifty" tree from Ford's White House. The wreath has a three dimensional depth to it and has all kinds of items from the Fords' trees. On the back of the wreath are insignia representing significant times in President Ford's life.
  • The included booklet provides more information on Ford, his presidency, the ornament, and the five Ford milestones represented.
  • Enjoy this wonderful collectible on your tree!

About Gerald Ford's Presidency

Gerald Ford, the 38th President of the United States, served from 1974 to 1977. He became president after the resignation of President Richard Nixon, who resigned during the Watergate scandal. Ford was the first person to become president without being elected either president or vice president.

During his presidency, Ford faced several significant challenges. One of his first actions as president was to issue a pardon to Richard Nixon, which was controversial at the time. He also faced economic challenges, including high inflation and rising unemployment.

Ford also had to deal with foreign policy issues during his presidency, including the fall of Saigon in Vietnam, the signing of the Helsinki Accords, and tensions with the Soviet Union.

In terms of domestic policy, Ford was known for his efforts to combat inflation through a series of economic policies and initiatives, including the "Whip Inflation Now" campaign. He also signed several significant pieces of legislation into law, including the Privacy Act of 1974 and the Education for All Handicapped Children Act.

Overall, Ford's presidency was marked by significant challenges and controversies, but he is generally seen as a steady and competent leader who helped to restore some stability and confidence to the presidency in the aftermath of the Watergate scandal.

I normally love buying these every year. My mom started buying them when I was young and I’m 64 now. I have every year. This year was disappointing. I’m not sure who chooses the design but I have a lot of wreaths. I like the more original designs like the helicopter, the trains etc. Please try to do more original designs. If it’s up to the president or White House, ask them to think outside the box like our last president did.
