Baby’s First Christmas

Celebrating Christmas with a new baby is an exciting time. A child will have only one first Christmas. It is a perfect time to start new traditions that include your new little boy or little girl. You can start a baby book or scrapbook for your child and include mementos in it like pictures, pieces of wrapping paper, Christmas cards, and other important holiday keepsakes.

You can also buy an ornament to celebrate this once in a lifetime occasion. A personalized ornament for a baby’s first Christmas is a great gift for any new baby. This special ornament can start a new Christmas tradition of the child placing his or her ornament on the tree each year. A child will look forward to this tradition every year.

Another wonderful gift for a baby’s first Christmas is a personalized frame. This frame can be kept and enjoyed for years to come. It can be filled with an adorable photo of baby all by himself or herself, or with a photo of the entire family celebrating this special occasion.

When decorating your home for the holidays, keep baby in mind. Place any tiny decorations or ones with sharp edges well out of reach of your little one’s hands. Another option to be safe is to use only soft, baby friendly decorations. Also keep these ideas in mind if you have pets. A holiday accident is probably not the way you or your child would like to spend Christmas.

Babies won’t remember their first Christmas, so it’s important to keep things simple and just let them enjoy their surroundings and the time that is spent with their family. Don’t be surprised if your baby has more interest in the wrapping paper or empty boxes than in any actual gifts. This is a good reason to not go overboard with presents for babies and young children. Once they are older, a personal gift will turn into a cherished keepsake that can be enjoyed year after year.
