Baby's first Christmas is a memorable occasion. You'll want to take plenty of photographs so that you and your children can look back on the event in future years, when they are old enough to appreciate the event.
Make sure to include as many friends and family in the photographs.
Nowadays, it's easy to be casual about photos - we take them with our cell phones as well as regular cameras. With this casual approach, it's easy to forget to save the photos to CD or store the prints in photo albums. So make sure you are organized enough to take the time to do this, otherwise the memories of your baby's first Christmas could be consigned to just memories, with no pictures to look at to jog those memories back.
You may have a family tradition of giving certain gifts for the first Christmas event. If that's the case, make sure that you continue your traditions.
If you don't have a tradition to follow - or at least, not one you are aware of - then now could be the time to start one.
Maybe a set of coins all dated with the year your baby was born?
Possibly you could have a plaque made up with one of the photos you took - this is an excellent way of preserving some of your memories.
Nowadays, you can even buy the minute in time that your baby was born, printed out on parchment and preserved forever!
The choices really are endless.
You just need to make sure that, as well as the essential baby clothes and some well chosen toys, there are items included that will help both you and your child to remember the truly special first Christmas that you and your newborn baby spent together.
