To make baby’s first Christmas truly memorable, you can delight your little one with a musical snow globe, give a Christmas tree decoration, create your own gift set, make a personalized Christmas stocking, consider hand or foot printing, personalize a Christmas plate, buy a figurine watch, and think about giving an angel pendant.
It is very exciting to celebrate Christmas with the newest member of the family. The memories spent on this day will always be special and memorable, especially with gifts that will always be remembered and kept. Here are some wonderful commemorative gifts ideas, both ready-made and personalized baby gifts that you can give for baby’s first Christmas.
Delight your little one with a musical snow globe
Musical snow globes are pleasing to baby’s senses. They are attractive to babies and music is soothing. There are many Christmas-themed musical snow globes you can find at specialty shops. Do not forget to write the Christmas year the baby is celebrating at the bottom of the globe along with the baby’s name.
Give a Christmas tree decoration
It is so much fun to see baby’s first special decor hanging on the Christmas trees each year as the baby grows older. There are lots of Christmas tree ornaments you can choose from for baby’s first Christmas celebration. You can order a personalized tree bauble with an angel or little Santa inside, or maybe a baby rattle decorated with Christmas ribbons. You can also hang a snug little pair of booties all complete with the baby dedication from you and the year of the Christmas celebration.
Create your own gift set
Another exciting and truly unforgettable gift you can give for baby’s first Christmas is to create your own Christmas gift set of firsts. You can give a combination of first Christmas photo frame, photo album, plush Santa, Christmas teddy, Christmas rompers, and many more. Wrap it in a basket and bring out the creativity in you to make your gift more special.
Make a personalized Christmas stocking
Almost every child traditionally owns a Christmas stocking, and it is never too early to let the baby own one on his or her first Christmas. You can make your own Christmas stocking or order one with an embroidery of the baby’s name and the year of the first Christmas celebration. When making one, make the socks attractive to the baby with ribbons and bells, but do not overdo it.
Consider hand or foot printing
Get creative and think about imprinting baby’s hand or foot on any material of your choice. You can use an ink and mark baby’s print on a shirt for mom, dad, or himself; choose to print it on a piece of watercolor paper and have it framed; make clay hand or foot prints; or purchase hand and foot print casts.
Personalize a Christmas plate
A Christmas plate is also a great commemorative gift for baby’s first Christmas. There are lots of specialty shops you can order from with many designs and dedications to choose from. You can put this plate on the top of a shelf in your dining area or in your reception area.
Buy a figurine watch
Another gift perfect for a Christmas decor and commemorative gift for baby’s first Christmas is a figurine watch. An elegant and truly classic design is an angel, and more fun and childlike designs are snowmen, reindeer, or Santas.
Think about giving an angel pendant
Finally, an elegant and truly a commemorative gift you can give for baby’s first Christmas is an angel pendant with a chain. The baby can use the pendant during Christmas time every year until she grows up. If well cared for, the pendant may be passed on from generation to generation.
Other commemorative gifts you can give a baby during his or her first Christmas include personalized apparel, such as bodysuits, socks, and shirts, as well as Christmas-themed stuffed toys, a music box Christmas CD, Christmas baby books, and personalized Christmas blankets.
