Product Description

  • Christmas Tree Nail ornament
  • Includes poem


The hanging of the Christmas Nail has become a beloved tradition in many Christian families. This metal nail is made in the style of those believed to have pierced Jesus' hands and feet as He was crucified. The Christmas Nail Ornament ties the miracle of Christmas to the sacrifice of Christ on the cross. It comes in a gift box and is ready to hang with a red satin ribbon. Inside the gift box is the Christmas Nail Poem, along with a listing of scriptural prophesies pertaining to the coming of the Messiah.

The Christmas Nail poem:

This is The Christmas Nail.
It is to be hung on a sturdy branch,
a branch near the trunk,
a branch that will hold such a spike without being noticed by well-wishers
dropping by to admire one's tinseled tree.
The nail is known only to the home that hangs it.
Understood only by the heart that knows its significance.
It is hung with the thought...that the Christmas tree but foreshadows the Christ-tree
which only He could decorate for us,
ornamented with nails as this.

Nail Ornament

Review: This was a lovely gift for my family. They loved the meaning behind it and makes for a nice tradition. The company shipped it out immediately, I had it within about 3-4 days of ordering! Would definitely recommend!!!

Beautiful Symbolism

Review: This will remind us of why Christ came on Christmas. Tucked away in the tree it combines the birth of Christ with the fortelling of His death for our Salvation.

Great product!!

Review: Fabulous company! Shipped quickly. I will definitely buy from them again.

Love It

Review: I have had mine for over a decade now and have purchased several for friends. Still have not been able to find any in other than on-line. Every year, this is part of putting my tree up. Before anything else goes on the tree the Christmas nail must be in place.

most meaningful Christmas gift

Review: This is something that I've had for years and have had a hard time finding in stores. I was delighted to find it here. I bought 6 for friends, that I know will enjoy it as much as I do. This expresses the true meaning of Christmas, along with a nativity. However this is much more personnel. I just love it.
