How to Celebrate Baby’s First Christmas

7 min read | 08 November 2022

The festive season is the most wonderful time of the year, full of tradition and celebration. A time when families gather together to share a delicious meal and exchange thoughtful gifts.

A new baby makes this time even more special and will leave you with so many wonderful memories. You can celebrate baby’s first Christmas by taking part in some classic traditions and creating some new ones of your own.

11 Ways to Celebrate Baby’s First Christmas

1. Decorate the Christmas Tree

Nothing says Christmas like a beautifully decorated tree. While your little one might be too young to help decorate, they’ll love staring at the tree's glittering lights and colourful decorations. Mark the occasion of your baby’s first Christmas with a special Christmas tree ornament hung front and centre.

2. Pay a Visit to Santa

Remember the annual visit to visit Santa each year? This is a fun tradition you can continue with your new baby. A photo of your little one with Santa each year will give you a fun and festive collection of photos to treasure.

3. Take Lots of Family Photos

Set up a festive season photoshoot in your backyard or local park! Dress up in your best Christmas outfits and ask a friend or family member to take a series of baby Christmas photos of your family. You’ll be able to use the photos in Christmas cards, give them as gifts to family members and even frame your favourites and hang them on your wall at home. You might even like to include them in a scrapbook to commemorate your little one’s first Christmas.

4. Hang Baby’s First Christmas Stocking

This year you’ll have an extra Christmas stocking to hang! Get your little one their very own stocking that they’ll use each Christmas for years to come.

5. Dress your Baby in a Special Christmas Outfit

A special occasion calls for a special outfit, and shopping for your baby’s first Christmas outfit is such a fun part of the festive season. They’ll be in lots of photos on Christmas Day, so this is a great excuse to buy that adorable outfit you’ve had your eye on! Christmas in Australia can get very warm, so opt for light, breathable fabrics like organic cotton and don’t forget a hat if you’re planning to spend a lot of the day celebrating outside.

6. Read Christmas Stories at Bedtime

Swap out your usual bedtime classics for Christmas books. From the traditional (think Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer and The Night Before Christmas) to the more modern (like The Grinch Who Stole Christmas), there is a range of wonderful Christmas stories to share with your little one throughout the festive season.

7. Find the Perfect Gift

While your little one might be too young to get overly excited about presents, your baby’s first Christmas gift is something that will likely become a keepsake and a treasured item. From practical items like blankets and towels to fun play things like soft toys and comforters, fill your newest stocking with thoughtful and useful baby Christmas gifts.

8. Dress Them in Festive Pyjamas

Get into the Christmas spirit with a pair of fun and festive pyjamas. They’ll look so adorable when they wake up on Christmas morning!

9. Write your Baby’s First Christmas Card

Share some thoughtful words with your little one in their very first Christmas Card. You could include some stories about some of the fun things you’ve done as a family in the leadup to Christmas Day, your most treasured memories from your first months together, and what you’re looking forward to in the year ahead. The card can then be added to your little one’s scrapbook or memory box and looked back on in the years ahead.

10. Unwrap Presents Together

One tradition that everyone loves on Christmas Day is exchanging gifts. Your little one will love helping you rip the gift wrapping off and playing with the boxes and ribbons! Make sure you’ve got your camera nearby to capture all the fun unwrapping moments.

11. Decorate the Nursery

When you’re decorating your house for Christmas, don’t forget your baby’s room! Hang some fairy lights, hang some paper Christmas decorations or set up a little tree to add a touch of festive spirit to your little one’s space. Just make sure that all decorations are safely out of reach.
