Every year since 1981, the White House Historical Association has created the Official White House Christmas Ornament. These unique collectibles — honoring individual presidents or specific White House anniversaries — have become part of the holiday tradition for millions of American families.

All ornament sales support the non-profit, non-partisan mission of the White House Historical Association to protect, preserve, and provide public access to the history of the White House.

The 2019 Ornament features:

  • The Presidential Seal on one side, representing Eisenhower’s two terms as Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces
  • The five-star rank on one side, honoring Eisenhower’s military service as a general in the United States Army
  • The ornament box (below) is a rendering of the White House South Lawn, as Eisenhower began the tradition of flying directly to and from the South Lawn
  • Lockheed Martin is the first ever official supporter of the ornament. Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin Company, has built every Presidential helicopter from the Eisenhower administration to present day.
