But this year is different.   Something wonderful has happened this year that will change your Christmas holiday forever.  You’re celebrating your “First Noel” with baby.  I’m sure you can’t help thinking about what Christmas was like when you were a child.  Whether you baked Christmas cookies together or had the early fun of opening one gift on Christmas Eve, family traditions were and still are a big part of the holiday celebration.  Growing up, there seemed to be magic in the air just thinking about Christmas, and now you get to create that same kind of excitement with your little one. Your baby is much too young to remember his or her’s first Christmas, but it’s a great time to begin some family traditions that he will remember for a lifetime.  Here are some creative ways to establish some new traditions this Christmas.

christmas-stocking.jpgTwelve Days of Christmas:  Who wouldn’t love to have a gift every day?  Using this popular holiday song as inspiration, you can give baby (and other family members) a small gift each day until Christmas.  Simply hang a personalized Christmas stocking on the mantle and fill it with a little treat every day.  Not knowing what to expect or when to expect it, each surprise gift will be a wonderful way to make the holidays even more magical.

Whether you choose Mommy’s Christmas Angel or one of our other personalized Christmas ornaments, it’s sure to be the start of a glorious holiday tradition.
