Personalized Christmas ornament manufacturer Calliope Designs is always looking to broaden their appeal to families of all shapes and sizes, and this year is no different. Targeting the gay and lesbian families across the US in their marketing strategy has made this holiday season that much more successful.

"Christmas is all about family, and we really believe that every family, no matter the shape or size should be able to celebrate with their own personalized holiday ornament," said Stephanie Eddy, owner and president of Calliope Designs. "We obviously sell a very traditional product, but our personalized ornaments are truly for everyone and we are so excited to be offering partner holiday ornaments to the gay and lesbian families in the US."

Calliope Designs specializes in creating claydough ornaments that can be personalized for any occasion. With categories of ornaments including everything from the traditional Baby's First Christmas to Pet Ornaments and Sports Ornaments any customer can find the personalized ornament that will be the perfect, thoughtful gift.

"We really have tried to think of every gifting option in the holiday season, from hostess gifts to ornaments you can give your whole family every year as a tradition, and we felt that partner ornaments and family ornaments for the gay and lesbian community were an important addition to our line," said Eddy.

The gay and lesbian market demographic is growing quickly in cities and suburban communities alike. Additionally, according to GL Census, 17% of lesbian couples hope to have children and 6% of gay couples also hope to add children to their families. Many of these families want to celebrate the traditions of their own childhood and gay and lesbian holiday ornaments can make the holiday feel that much more inclusive.

"Every person, family and child deserves to celebrate their holiday in a personal way, and that's why we love our ornaments - they prompt the creation of traditions. We have ornaments with partners, partners with one child and two children and more. This means you can find the ornament that represents your family in that moment every year," adds Eddy.
