Baby's First Christmas Keepsakes

Updated on December 24, 2013

Cherish those memories forever

How exciting! It's your baby's first Christmas! These are memories you'll want to cherish forever and the easiest way to do that is with ornaments, stockings and picture frames made especially to celebrate your baby's first Christmas. These can be displayed for years to come and eventually, they can even be passed down to your baby!

This was my daughters first Christmas. We have it displayed in a silver 1st Christmas frame on the table next to the front door. Thanks to this picture, we'll never forget the Christmas she tried to eat the tree!

Baby's First Christmas Ornament

My parents started a holiday tradition during my first Christmas. They bought me an ornament. And every year after that, they bought me another. Then for my first Christmas with my husband, they gave me all those ornaments to decorate our first tree with.

I've continued that tradition with my own children, buying them each their own ornament every Christmas and today, our tree is filled with memories, theirs and mine.

These Precious Moments porcelain ornaments are hand sculpted and hand painted. Each says "Baby's 1st Christmas" on the hat and "2012" on the scarf.

There's no better way to remember your baby's first Christmas than with this handprint ornament kit. In just a few simple steps, you can have an imprint of her tiny little hand or foot.

Imagine holding this in your hands 20 years from now. You'll never believe she was that small!

A perfect way to preserve the memories of your baby's first Christmas is to frame them in a picture frame ornament.

Baby's First Christmas Stocking

I always said I wouldn't get my kids a stocking until their second Christmas. After all, what would I fill a small baby's stocking with? But when my son's first Christmas came around, I couldn't wait to pick out his first stocking and hang it up with ours. Now that stocking makes a great holder for all his ornaments.

More for Baby's First Christmas

While most outgrown baby clothing gets thrown away or passed down, there's always those few treasured pieces that get stored away because we just can't bring ourselves to let them go.

These jammies are one of those treasured pieces.

I've always loved the old fashioned pajamas with the back-flap. These are made even cuter with your baby's name embroidered on the flap. These 100% cotton jammies are available in 4 sizes from newborn to 18 months.

      No, but my nephew and his wife just had their first child this year. I think one of these would make a great gift. Blessed.
