First Christmases are so important. This is when we make memories and take photos and then pull those photos out years down the line. As important as the first Christmas is for baby, with their festive jumper or bib, it’s also important for the parents. Mummy and Daddy are having their first Christmas as a Mummy and a Daddy. How can you celebrate Daddy’s first Christmas and what gifts are ideal for fathers on their first Christmas Day as a daddy?
A Christmas Card
The Christmas card might be the most important. The first Christmas receiving a Daddy card is so wonderful. Obviously it’s not going to be written by the baby but you could draw around the baby’s hand so you can always look back on the size of their little fingers from their first Christmas. These are the Christmas cards which will be filed away and remembered for years to come.
Dad & Baby Clothes
There are many companies where you can buy the same t shirt of pyjamas in different sizes. One perfectly sized for baby and the other for Daddy. They might be identical designs or some of them have Pint for Daddy and half pint for baby. These cute and cheerful clothing items are great for photos and cuddles.
How about a great hip flask with dad on the side of it? If your Dad loves a good swig of Rum, this hip flask is perfect! Maybe something with the hand print or foot print of baby on it? You can go to pottery painting shops were you can make these little items. Little gifts might be small in size, but just like baby, mean an awful lot!
It Comes Down To The Memories
If you’re unable to get too may gifts this Christmas, don’t forget it’s the memories that last a lifetime. The new baby needs nappies and wipes and clothes, so if your money isn’t stretching too far after that, don’t worry. The memories are the important things.
Daddy’s first Christmas is wonderful, just don’t forget to enjoy those baby cuddles!
