WASHINGTON -- If there's still a bare spot on your Christmas tree, you might want to check out the ornaments from the White House Historical Association, which has produced an original White House-themed ornament every year since 1981.

This year's ornament pays homage to President Theodore Roosevelt, whose family included six children. One side of the ornament features a cartoon that appeared in a December 1901 edition of Harper's Weekly depicting Santa Claus in front of the White House. A quote reads, "I hear there are some kids in the White House this year." It's priced at $17.95.

The non-profit organization, which was founded in 1961 with the help of then-first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, has an extensive database that features 30 years worth of Christmas ornaments. And yes, they're all for sale.

Take a peek at the gallery below for 30 years of White House Christmas ornaments.
