Baby’s first Christmas is a special time for the whole family. There are memories to make, traditions to develop and a special little person to shower with love. We have some gorgeous ideas for how to decorate your home, your tree and even your baby – with super cute baby clothes!
Decorating your home for baby’s first Christmas
Baby’s first Christmas can bring with it a plethora of visitors. Whether they are meeting baby for the first time or doting grandparents soaking up more time with their new grandchild, everyone will appreciate baby’s first Christmas decorations around your home. We have some lovely ideas to celebrate this special time and all of these items will become keepsakes for years to come.
Baby’s first Christmas cushion
These vibrant blue or red cushions can be personalised with your baby’s first name. Choose to have their name in either hearts or stars font. Below their name will be the words “1st Christmas”. Choose whether to have a cushion pad or just the 100% cotton cover to place on your own cushion.
Baby’s First Christmas print
This adorable print can be personalised with your baby’s name. Each one features tiny festive baby clothing hanging from a line. Put one on your wall or buy it as a keepsake for a new baby’s bedroom. The chunky white wooden frame holds a print on premium gloss paper. It can hang on a wall or be freestanding to make a feature in any part of your home.
Family Christmas photo album
Start making memories from day one with this keepsake family Christmas photo album. Give the creator your family name and baby’s year of birth to personalise your handmade festive album. These unique albums are available in small or large sizes and come with a suede finish with delicate stitching. A satin ivory bow ties the album shut. The front cover design is printed on pearlescent ivory card and mounted onto pearlescent red backing card.
Decorating your tree for baby’s first Christmas
Whilst baby’s first Christmas only happens once, the keepsake baubles for your tree will be brought out year after year. Our pretty tree decorations will stand the test of time. They make a lovely gift for a family spending their first Christmas with a little one, or simply treat yourself to something beautiful.
First Christmas as a Family Hanging Star
Your wooden white hanging star with attached wooden heart will be personalised with your names. The words “First Christmas as a family” and the year your baby was born make it a decoration that you will treasure for many Christmases to come.
Personalised sterling silver bauble
A personalised sterling silver keepsake bauble is a lovely gift that is sturdy enough to stay with a baby for the rest of their lives. Every bauble is handmade using sterling silver. They can be personalised with any message of your choice up to 30 characters, including stars. Whilst these are sturdy, they are lightweight enough to hang beautifully on the Christmas tree. Use of traditional silversmithing techniques makes every bauble completely unique. A ribbon to hang the bauble with is attached and the gift arrives in a Kysam jewellery box tied with ribbon.
Make it yourself: handmade photo blocks
We understand that baby’s first Christmas can be an expensive time. So, if your budget won’t stretch to buying a personalised ornament, why not make one yourself? We love the idea of these personalised photo blocks, they look quite complicated to make but well worth the effort.
Christmas clothes for baby
We couldn’t resist taking this opportunity to tell you about some of our gorgeous festive baby clothes. We know your baby is already the cutest thing in the world. But wait until you see them in a Christmas pudding hat and booties.
Christmas pudding hat
This Christmas pudding hat has to be the ultimate festive accessory for babies this year. Made from merino wool and machine washable at 30 degrees, your little one will spend the winter warm, cosy and indescribably cute.
Christmas pudding booties
We feel the need to apologise for making people aware of these Christmas pudding booties. Should there be a baby boom next year, we will know that people all over the land have spotted a baby wearing knitted merino wool booties. Combine them with the Christmas pudding hat if you want to reach unbearable levels of cute.
Festive penguin baby bodysuit
These thick organic cotton bodysuits will keep your baby warm this winter. The exquisite penguin design will delight everyone who sees it. For easy changing, the bodysuit boasts an envelope neck and popper fastening. It is made from long lasting organic cotton and the neck is free from labels to prevent irritation. The cute penguin is printed from water based inks that are baby friendly. It is machine washable too, because we know that staying clean isn’t a skill many babies have developed by their first Christmas.
Cotton penguin bib
Pair the festive penguin baby bodysuit with this sweet little bib. Ideal for Christmas lunchtime, it fastens at the back with velcro and is machine washable. Like the bodysuit, the bib is made from organic cotton and printed with water based, baby friendly inks.
