One of the most exciting things to look forward to with a new baby is their first Christmas!
It’s such an exciting time for the family and a wonderful opportunity to plan some fun new Christmas traditions to welcome the new little person in to the family. Here are some great Christmas craft suggestions to make Baby’s First Christmas one to remember.
1. A Christmas stocking for the new baby is lovely way to include this new member of the family in this years Christmas festivities. Use some colourful Christmas fabric and bring it to life with iron-on pictures of Santa, his elves or maybe just Rudolf on it. The final touch is stitching baby’s name on the stocking so that it can be hung out every Christmas Eve.
2. You could also make a sparkly bauble for the tree with baby’s name and the year on it. Buy a clear bauble and some non-toxic paint and decorate it with baby’s handprint. This makes a unique and gorgeous present that all the family will love.
3. A thoughtful gift for grandparents and aunties and uncles is a miniature picture frame with a photo of the new bub and the year they were born to hang on the Christmas tree or from the mantelpiece. You can find small wooden picture frames in local craft shops. Paint the frame in a classic Christmas red, silver or gold paint and stencil on it the baby’s name and their year of birth. A black and white photo makes this into a classic memento that they will use each year.
4· A unique gift to put under the tree for baby’s first Christmas is a cuddly personalised bathrobe from Baby Stitch. A soft white towelling bathrobe with a hood to keep bub’s head warm will look gorgeous in the photos after bath time on Christmas day, especially with their name stitched beautifully in pink or blue. Baby Stitch can organise for this thoughtful gift to be sent in plenty of time for Christmas Day, carefully presented in a gift box with a card for your Christmas message.
