Your babies first Christmas is one that you will never forget! It’s a magical time of year and is perfect to start making your own family traditions and create memories that will last.
We have brought to you 6 ways to make your baby’s first Christmas special. From personalised tree decorations to family photos and outfits, you’ll be sure to find a Christmas tradition for your family this year.
Design Your Own Tree Decorations
Mark the special occasion with a personalised tree decoration. Many places such as Asda and Tesco offer special tree decorations where you can incorporate family photos. So why not place your baby at the top of the tree where all can see. This would also be a fantastic Christmas present for grandparents and friends.
Visit Father Christmas
Take a trip to Santa’s grotto and let your baby experience the magic of Christmas. Let them have their photo taken with Father Christmas and start the tradition of special festive photos. You can look back at them in years to come and see how they’ve grown. Why not create a Christmas album as part of your Christmas decorations? Open up a tin of special biscuits and sit down with friends and family each year to reminisce.
Family Christmas Cards
Start the tradition of sending personalised family Christmas cards! They are the perfect excuse to take adorable photos of your little one and send them to your family and friends. Online retailers such as Funky Pigeon and Moon Pig offer great deals for personalised Christmas cards with the option of delivery too! Just like the Father Christmas photos, keep a copy for yourself and treasure the memories for years to come.
Christmas Day Outfit
There’s nothing wrong with celebrating Christmas day with an adorable outfit! Many parents now a days get excited to dress their babies up so why not hit the stores and see what you can find? From snowmen, reindeers, Christmas puddings and elves, there’s plenty of choice in our high street stores for the perfect Christmas day outfit.
A great idea for a Christmas tradition is to pretend fairies visit your house to decorate the tree. Wait until your little one goes to bed before you start putting your decks up and surprise them when they wake up. Each year the anticipation will grow and your little ones will be over excited when they see the tree. Another plus side is you will be able to decorate your tree without having the distraction of the kids.
Video Christmas Morning
Images speak a thousand words but videos capture every moment! Wake up on Christmas morning and set up a video camera, capture the moments when your little one opens their presents and plays with their toys. It’s a great way to save the precious moments each year and you can look back at them together as a family when the kids are older.
