6 Ways to celebrate your baby’s first Christmas

 

1. Baby presents & keepsakes


Are you thinking about going all out with mountains of Christmas presents for your baby or opting for a more low key approach and perhaps creating keepsakes instead?

It’s such a personal choice, but whatever you decide, remember that babies really don’t have any idea of what’s going on.

We all love to give presents, but small keepsakes can be kept as an everlasting memory of your baby's first Christmas.
 

2. Starting Christmas traditions


Your baby's first Christmas is a great time to start your own family Christmas traditions or carry on ones that you had when you were child.

One of the easiest is starting your own Christmas tree decoration tradition.

All you need to do is buy a Christmas tree decoration each Christmas and give them all to your kids when they leave home for their own tree.
 

3. Personalised baby Christmas cards


New parents love taking photos and your baby's first Christmas gives you the perfect excuse to foist their adorableness on pretty much everyone in your address book.

Create your photos online or print out some photos and stick them to card and make Christmas cards the old fashioned way.
 
Or how about having a go at this idea and making Christmas cards using their finger prints
 

4. Christmas stockings


Your baby's first Christmas is the time to buy their Christmas stocking, one that you’ll pull out year after year.

Look for Christmas stockings that are well made and won’t go out of fashion in a hurry, or have a go at making your own.
 
Here are some ideas on filling your baby's Christmas stocking.
 

5. First visit to Santa


Your baby will have absolutely no idea who the guy in the red suit is, but you’ll love looking back on the photos in years to come.
 

6. Baby Christmas photos


Your baby's first Christmas gives you the perfect excuse to take even more photos of them, from when they first see the lights on the Christmas tree to opening their presents, hanging out with family and friends and so many more opportunities.

Your baby is at a great age and will stay in one place. Take lots of photos and delete those that don’t turn out so well.

Perhaps even create your own Christmas photo album, adding new photos each year as your baby grows up.
