i found this one when i was looking for ornament ideas a few days ago.

i think it's cute and not too kitschy.

and you could do it with any 2  you want/have/can think of.

and: i don't want to offend you or sound harsh, but i think you would get better answers, if you would ask a more specific question.
do you want ideas or tips on how to make?
you could show ornaments you like and ask for help on how to make them.
or if you want ideas, it could be helpful to tell people what crafts you are good at/dislike/ and what you would like/be willing to try
you know the better the question, the better the answer ;-)

How about a simple felt ornament? They're fairly simple, you basically just take felt (I've been using the cheapy acrylic stuff from the craft aisle at Walmart), cut out two matching pieces, sew together and add a little bit of fiberfill. They could be 2d, or you could make actual shapes. (For Example, I made a 2d star that was just a cutout star front and back, and I also made a wedding cake with 3d cylinders for each layer)

It could be tricky to get faces to look really good in felt (well, I'm a beginner sewer and I think that would be trick) so how about representing something about you two...maybe a place you visited this year or a hobby you both share? You could hand embroider your names/year onto the front or back. I should have some pics of some of my ornaments up in the Christmas 2009 list.
