Even though baby may not be aware of what’s happening at Christmas, we still get that overwhelming feeling of excitement to mark their first one. It’s the first-time enjoying spending Christmas with your new-born bundle, your family has extended, and all those extra presents have made their way under the Christmas Tree. Generally, all your extended family members will be buying for baby at Christmas so instead of getting even more presents you might be thinking of a way to sentimentally mark the occasion. It’s great to keep something from baby’s first Christmas to remind you of this special time, here I’ve put together six adorable first Christmas ideas of keepsakes and memories which I hope you love.
The Christmas Tree
Why not keep a slice of your real Christmas tree. You can print babies name on some wax paper and transfer to the slice of wood so you can hang it on all your future Christmas trees, this way you’ll never forget the first one.
As an on the go mom you will want to take baby to see family and friends and of course, to see Santa’s grotto and his reindeers. Making sure baby is safe and snuggly is priority, try the Britax Eclipse car seat. You can also adorn the car seat with a Christmas mobile to ensure baby is entertained on the journey to see Santa.
Tiny Hand and Feet
An absolute must is to capture how adorable your baby’s tiny hands and feet are by immortalising them. You can turn them into an ornament using either plaster of Paris or salt dough and decorate them with paint and glitter, after all you can’t have Christmas without glitter! You can even give them away as gifts. Grandparents especially will love this one.
Matching pyjamas! All the family wearing Christmas PJ’s and eating cookies on Christmas eve is a definite must. Don’t forget to take the obligatory family photo in them too, this could become your family tradition.
Start reading to your baby early by reading a book that has their name in. You can purchase personalised books, stories where your baby will be the lead character. They can keep this book forever and read it every Christmas.
Personalised Christmas decorations are always perfect for the whole family to enjoy. This year garnish your tree with a unique array of shapes and sizes with a sentimental touch to celebrate the festive season.
