Baby’s First Christmas - Traditions To Begin

It’s true what they say - children are the ones that make Christmas special.

With festivities fast approaching, you may be getting overwhelmed in the planning of your baby’s first Christmas. And that’s completely understandable.

After all, as parents, we want to make it perfect for them and create memories that can be looked on in many years to come.

Although your little one will not remember their first Christmas, traditions are a great thing to begin to establish during Christmas, as they can continue year-after-year, and become something that your child cherishes about the festive season when they are older.

To help inspire you, we’ve listed some of the thoughtful traditions you can begin to help your baby’s first Christmas to be magical, in the hope they will last far longer than the real fir tree.


Family Photo

While family photos may feel somewhat of a nostalgic tradition that you often see on Pinterest, these photos can be fun or fancy, and be a great way to gather the family together every year. No matter their age!  

Whether you decide to wear matching outfits, hilarious costumes or wear your best, a Christmas family photo makes for an easy tradition to continue, and for transforming into festive cards for friends and family.


Make A Decoration

From putting their tiny feet into clay molds to creating handprint art; starting the tradition of everyone making their own decoration can be a fun way for the entire family to begin making their mark on Christmas.

Get everyone to make a decoration and add it to the Christmas tree, yes, even you mummy and daddy.

By continuing this tradition you will create some beautiful decorations that bring back memories every Christmas.


Search For Christmas Lights

Nothing says Christmas like a house that’s decorated like Santa’s grotto!

As many people truly go all out with their decorations, it can be great fun to go together as a family to view the house and show your appreciation.

Pile into the car and travel around your local area to get a family snap outside the most festive home.

Many people decorate their homes in order to raise money for a charity or to drive awareness about a particular topic, so it can be a positive way to help others with their cause.


Christmas Book

Purchasing a Christmas book for your little one each year is a wonderful tradition that can keep going even when they’re older.

By adding in a little note from you about the year, your child will continue to cherish these books even when they are an adult. Meaning they will be passed on in your family and become a strong Christmas tradition.
