Christmas with a new baby is such a magical time. Creating new family traditions really brings the season to life and gives it new meaning. So, what are our top tips for creating a magical first Christmas with a new baby?
Top tips to create a magical first Christmas with a new baby:
Firstly, don’t expect too much from baby! If they are tiny, they will (hopefully) sleep through some of the day to give you some well-earned rest. They will probably enjoy looking at the Christmas tree lights and maybe playing with wrapping paper but they won’t get all that excited about the idea of Christmas just yet. That doesn’t mean that you can’t have lots of fun planning some new family traditions 😊
First stop is a Christmas stocking. Nothing is more exciting than hanging a stocking on Christmas Eve ready for Santa’s visit and at Babyblooms we have some personalised luxury velvet stockings that will look fabulous year after year. Of course, Santa works hard delivering gifts to all the children of the world and he deserves a little treat when he visits your house. Our personalised Christmas Eve plate even has space for a carrot for the reindeer and is sure to become a special part of Christmas Eve night. A personalised Christmas Eve box is a lovely way to start the magic of Christmas Eve and a personalised Christmas Eve story is a lovely way to wind down on Christmas Eve night.
So, once you have got Christmas Eve sorted you can think about the tree. It is such a lovely idea to put a keepsake “Baby’s First Christmas” bauble on the tree and Babyblooms have some beautifully illustrated, personalised baubles that will become a treasured keepsake for years to come. Baby will also need an outfit for Christmas Day and we have some cute Christmas bib and t-shirt combos that can also be personalised.
Finally, Christmas can be a good time to stock up on some essentials. A new baby isn’t going to mind what you buy them so why not take the opportunity to stock up on some essentials? A super soft blanket or cosy bathrobe and hooded towel will be used all year round and makes a practical and thoughtful gift for baby’s first Christmas.
