From cute keepsakes to creating new traditions, your baby's first Christmas is something special to celebrate. Although it may be a bit different this year, there are still plenty of ways you can make this year memorable – for the right reasons. 

What to do for baby's 1st Christmas

If you're used to having a big extended family Christmas, it's likely that this won't be going ahead. However, try to turn this into a positive, perhaps make a point of 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.

Of course, you can still be connected to your extended family, even if you don't see them on the day. Arrange a video call so you can all see each other, and make thoughtful handmade gifts and cards for them.
