Your baby’s first Christmas is a very special occasion. And it is sooo much fun to make it special by preparing and shop away just a little bit!
Even if your baby is newborn and mainly sleeping, a new baby definitely changes the Christmas celebration for mom and dad. It is just different (and better) to sit by the tree together with your child…
And for babies, even just a few months old, the tree, the lights, the beautiful presents, the music and much more can be very exciting!
Not to mention the adventure for babies that can crawl, walk or even just grab things and try chewing on them. (Make sure all nuts are out of reach!)
If you like Christmas, like I do, grab the opportunity! Do some fun preparation and shopping for your new family member! His or her very first Christmas ornament, stocking, a cute Christmas bib or a cozy pajama…
I’ve gathered some cute Christmas items for your baby below. Some pretty ornaments, clothes, bibs and other cute stuff to prepare your baby for Christmas.
If you’re looking for Christmas toy gifts to your baby, you’ll find a toy guide depending on your baby’s age here. And if you want to buy baby clothes, find what are practical clothing gifts and not per baby month here.
How to Prepare For Baby’s First Christmas
Ornaments For Baby’s First Christmas
Ornaments are great Christmas items for a new baby. As your child grows, he or she can decorate the tree with their very own ornament, and you get to connect back and tell your child about earlier Christmases. It can be a dear memory!
Here are several different ornaments available from Amazon:
Christmas Pajama & Bodysuits For Babies
You might not want to dress up your baby as Santa Claus, at least not more than for a few hours, since costumes even for babies are usually neither very comfortable nor very practical.
Instead (or in addition), go for a Christmas pajama or bodysuit! Your baby will be more comfortable and still super cute for the family pictures!
If your baby is teething, generally just drooling or spitting up a lot or maybe has started with solid baby food, and Christmas bib will be perfect for the family dinner and it will add to the Christmas feeling around the house.
Christmas Stockings For Baby (Too)
We ordered personalized Christmas stockings for all our children when our youngest was only a few months old. With three stockings hanging there waiting for our children, we felt so gifted and rich! And we bring them out every year.
Even during the years when we travel for Christmas, I definitely pack the stockings!
Christmas Pictures of Your Little One
You see, preparing for your baby for his or her first Christmas is not difficult at all! Just add a few Christmas items to their regular clothing and get a few ornaments for the tree. Now, another thing to do – and I am quite sure you already planned for this – is to take lots of pictures during Christmas!
