What to do for baby's first Christmas
If you're used to having a big extended family Christmas, you might decide to have a smaller one this year, making this Christmas just about your own little family. Handpick the traditions you love from you and your partner's Christmases and make them your own, or create new traditions you'd like to take on. It's these extra touches that make a magical Christmas.
