Baby's First Christmas Ornament
A baby's first Christmas ornament makes a beautiful keepsake that you can enjoy with your entire family every holiday season for years to come. Holiday ornaments also make a special gift for family or friends to give to new parents. Keepsake ornaments come in a variety of styles, ranging from simple to elaborate, generic to personalized. Here are a few different types of styles you can choose between for baby's first Christmas ornament.
- Basic: No frills, no fuss. Just a simple ornament that says "Baby's First Christmas 2019."
- Engraved: Engraving gives you the option of personalizing your baby's first Christmas ornament even more than just having the year on it. Typically engraved ornaments provide the option of adding Baby's name, although some will also provide space for other details, such as Baby's birth date or other family members' names.
- Photo: Make your baby's first Christmas ornament even more special with photos! A professional photo of your baby or of the family together will make the ornament more than just a pretty bauble on the tree. It'll be a keepsake for years to come.

Professional Holiday Photos
Even if you've never done professional Christmas photos before, consider having them done to commemorate your first Christmas as a family. Professional photos can be as traditional as the whole family posing together in their holiday finery, or as fun as an infant photo shoot with holiday touches and props. Consider getting these photos done as soon as possible, so that you can order custom photo holiday cards, possibly even with "Baby's First Christmas 2019" written on the card to make a keepsake for family and friends.
Christmas Gift from Baby
Your baby is of course too young to start picking out their own gifts, but it's still not too early to start the tradition! Someone special in your baby's life, such as a parent, grandparent, or even a nanny or caregiver, will appreciate receiving a keepsake of their first holiday season with Baby. Gift ideas include framed photographs, small photo albums or scrapbooks, handprints, footprints, and other personalized gifts that can be marked with the words, "Baby's First Christmas 2019."
Keepsakes and Christmas outfits are more than just traditions to celebrate baby's first Christmas. The memories you make this holiday season will last for years to come!
