Plus, these ideas are perfect for starting new holiday traditions! Choose a few of these Christmas activities for baby and watch your child’s face light up with surprise and delight!
7 Ideas for Baby’s First Christmas
Soothe your little one with Christmas books.
Help your child fall asleep with soothing stories. A personalized Christmas book like A Christmas Dream for Me will send your child to sleep with sweet Christmas dreams. A personalized children’s storybook like My Very Merry First Christmas is made special for the child’s first Christmas, to make it an unforgettable milestone celebration!
Hang baby’s first Christmas ornament on the tree.
Decorate your tree with precious memories! An ornament is the perfect way to remember this special milestone forever. Add your child’s name and photo to a personalized baby’s first Christmas ornament. This sweet keepsake will be cherished and hung on the tree every Christmas!
Think outside the box for a photo with Santa.
We all know how stressful it can be visiting Santa Claus in public! This activity can mean sensory overload for babies. Instead of taking the traditional photo with Santa at the mall, we recommend getting creative with props! Take a photo of your baby laying down next to a personalized children’s book that has Santa on the cover. A custom storybook like Our Family’s Night Before Christmas is the perfect photo prop, so Santa can still be on the photo. And, you can read this sweet Christmas story, personalized for your family, every night!
Decorate your baby’s room for Christmas!
Transform your child’s nursery into a whimsical Christmas palace full of sensory delights! Excite your child with colorful lights. Give them a mini tree to touch and smell. Dangle bells and listen to them jingle. Turn on holiday music and enjoy tummy time on a soft faux fur rug. Baby will love these new sensations, and the whole family will love watching the experience.
Wear matching Christmas pajamas for a dance party.
Get the whole family matching Christmas pajamas to wear for a festive dance party! Turn on your favorite holiday tunes, or play personalized Christmas music that has your child’s name in the lyrics. Family members can take turns dancing and twirling with baby, making happy memories with every step!
Create a Christmas time capsule.
As you make memories this winter, put special items into a box to save forever. Add pictures, your baby’s first Christmas outfit, and a copy of the Christmas card you sent to friends and family. When your child is older, open the box and relive every special memory.
Begin a Christmas cookie baking tradition.
Start a new family tradition of baking cookies together! Baby can “help” by acting as kitchen supervisor and rolling the dough between their hands. Then take a picture of baby with the cookies to commemorate the tradition!
