FESTIVE FUN

BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS

If you’re wondering how to mark the magical occasion of your baby’s first Christmas, here are some ideas to make it extra festive

Decorate the nursery

So much emphasis is put on decorating the living room at Christmas, but why not spread that seasonal cheer to your baby’s bedroom? It might even bring some festive joy to the 2am night feed. You don’t need to install a full-on Christmas tree, but a cute robin on a shelf or pretty snowflake can add some Yuletide spirit to the space. Make sure that any decorations are out of your baby’s reach.

Visit the Christmas lights

Babies love staring at colourful twinkling lights, so a trip into town to see the festive display is bound to be a winner. Wrap them up warm with our selection of cosy baby outfits and they’ll be able to enjoy the sparkly sight without getting chilly.

Look the part

Is there anything cuter than a freshly bathed baby in their onesie? The answer is no – and you can make your child look even more adorable with a festive set.



Get a stocking

The great thing about baby’s first Christmas is that they won’t demand any presents – in fact, there’s no point spending loads of money on extravagant gifts at this age. But one item worth investing in is a gorgeous Christmas stocking that your little one can keep for years to come. We love these personalised initial stockings.

Take lots of photos

Don’t forget to take family photos amid the Christmas hubbub – you’ll treasure pictures of your baby’s first Christmas for ever. Pick a gorgeous outfit to dress them in and it will work for seasonal parties, outings and the big day itself. And remember to pass on or sell the clothes the following year, ensuring each piece has longevity.

Buy a special ornament

A nice way to mark your baby’s first Christmas is with a decoration that you can bring out year after year. This penguin bauble is just the ticket.
