Bake a Sweet Treat
Baking some sweet treats like a nice pumpkin pie, gingerbread cookies or a baked Alaska will get you into the festive spirit. So look through your recipe collection to see what family favorites you can start baking for the festive season. Your little one will be unable to eat it, but you can still take a photo of them with your favorite family Christmas treat to add to the family album.
Buy New Toys and Accessories
It can be really enjoyable when you get to go shopping for your little one and decide on what Christmas outfits, toys or accessories to get them. It will feel really special to you as a parent knowing that this will be their first ever Christmas. They won’t remember it personally but you will have the special memories to treasure and be able to recount it to them when they are older. So why not treat your child to some new items of clothing or toys.
Move Into Your New House Before The Holidays
If you can get things processed as quickly as possible when it relates to selling your home and moving into your new property in time for Christmas, it can make the entire experience even more special. Keeping up to date with your financial paperwork, accepting your ideal offer, arranging your Mortgage Quotes and speaking regularly to your realtor will help you to sell your current home in favor of your brand new property. This will be a lovely way to spend your first Christmas with your little one in a new home.
Invite Family and Friends Over
You might want to spend all your time with your little one but it will be nice to share their first Christmas with other members of your family or close friends as well. You could invite some of them over to your house or if you prefer, video call them instead. This will still enable them to say hello to your little one and feel as though they are part of their first Christmas too.
Take Lots of Photos
The best thing to do to capture the wonderful memories is take lots of photos and short videos throughout the day on your smartphone or new DSLR camera. This will enable you to capture all the great moments which you can then look back upon fondly and show to your child when they are older. The more spontaneous, funny moments are great to revisit over and over again.
