Boston Christmas ornament

My husband and I have a vacation to Boston planned in three weeks. One of our traditions is to purchase a Christmas ornament. When December comes we have a little memory of every vacation. We have everything from beautiful crystal to handcarved lighthouses. Any suggestions as to where we could find a Christmas ornament?

We found one when we did the Freedom Trail; it was in a little gift shop by the Old North Church. We have the same tradition!

I found a cute one in the Prudential Center(at a little stand right outside Legal Seafoods).

Think outside of the box - it doesn't have to be a Christmas ornament to hang on your tree! Try looking for small souvenirs that can hang on the tree and remind you of Boston. You should be able to find lots of things that will work. A small pennant from Fenway or other Redsox baseball memorabilia, a kitchen magnet works too. Lots of possibilities.

Thanks to all for your replies. And thank you yk for the link to the same question last year. I'm new to the forum and not familiar with all the places I could look for an answer. We are really looking forward to our vacation!

I bought a little pewter ornament of the North Church (one if by land...) at a little gift shop right next to the church.
Have fun in Boston; it is a great city!!!
