Ideas For Your Baby’s First Christmas

Date December 15th, 2010 Comment Comments Off on Ideas For Your Baby’s First Christmas

If this is your baby’s first Christmas, there are many wonderful ways to make it Memorable. The most obvious of course is to take many movies and
still pictures of baby. Under the tree, in their Christmas outfit, sitting with Grandma and Grandpa, visiting Santa Claus and sitting with cousins among
the Christmas wrapping paper and ribbon.
The baby may be oblivious to the Holiday but you can’t let it pass by without buying wonderful things for your baby’s first Christmas. One Christmas
gift that my son received on his first Christmas now is the proud possession of his one-year-old daughter. Furniture is a wonderful way to preserve the
memory of the first Christmas.
Books always make great gifts for babies. A few of the books recommended are:
Goodnight Moon and Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown
Pat the Bunny by Dorothy Kunhardt
Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney
Any book by Dr. Seuss, children love the singsong rhythm of his books.
Many greeting card companies also make special ornaments for baby’s first Christmas. It’s a nice tradition to start a collection of ornaments for your
child when he is a baby, and add one each Christmas. What a special memento for that child when he sets up his first Christmas Tree and has all of
his personal ornaments to put on it.
Another favorite is a stuffed animal. It could play music or just be a comfortable toy for the child to hold on to. This first present could become a
beloved companion for your baby.
You also might consider buying a special outfit with Baby’s First Christmas printed on it. Save it for the day that they have their own special first baby
There are so many things that can be personalized now for Baby’s first Christmas. You can personalize baby blankets, clothes, and even clocks can
be personalized with your baby’s name and the year of their first Christmas.
How about a personalized Christmas stocking for your baby? This is something that could become a treasured possession for years to come and can
be passed down from one generation to another.
When buying Christmas gifts for your baby consider spending a little more and getting something that will last through the years. A baby’s first train or
doll that will remain with your child for years to come is a wonderful reminder of baby’s first Christmas.

These beautiful lawn ornaments are so versatile and with a great selection to choose from it is always fun buying wind chimes, wind spinners and garden planters.

Wind spinners are a great gift idea because they come in many different colors, shapes, sizes and themes and are mesmerizing in the wind. Good quality wind spinners will survive harsh weather if made of stainless steel which does not rust. Taking care of stainless steel wind spinners is a breeze because there is simply no maintenance. The most work mom or grandma will have to do with her wind spinners is move it to a different location if she desires. Wind spinners can be hung from brackets, hook stands, the ceiling of a porch, some deck railings, outside the front door, and for smaller ones in the window, the rearview mirror of your car, or on the Christmas tree. Wind spinners are great lawn ornaments for the garden or yard.

You could decorate plain clay garden planters with paints, mortar and broken tile pieces or other different textured pieces. Mom or grandma will definitely appreciate all the work you put into decorating her garden planters. If you don’t have time to decorate one yourself, there are plenty of cute garden planters to choose from in many shapes, sizes and colors. Just find the right garden planter and fill it with a beautiful flower plant. There are also garden planter stands and racks that can be used to display garden planters. Getting a planter stand will help mom or grandma showcase her favorite garden planters and make it easier to maintain all together.
