3. Letter from the North Pole

How about this amazing keepsake from the Polar Post?  You can order your baby a letter from Father Christmas himself.  Your little one’s mail arrives from the North Pole complete with a personalized letter and a gorgeous envelope embossed by elves.  You can also continue this tradition throughout your baby’s childhood with other letters.  I think these are such a magical stocking stuffer, don’t you?  Heck, I want a letter from the North Pole, too!

4. Chalkboard Christmas

I love these chalkboard stats from Etsy.  They are perfect for your baby’s monthly photos, and are a wonderful keepsake to display year after year at Christmastime.

5. Red Truck & Baby Tree

Isn’t this red car/Christmas tree photo idea just the cutest?  I guess baby would have to be a tad bit older to really pull this off, but I just had to include it.  It’s too creative not too, right?

6. 1st Stocking

I never in a million years would’ve thought to put my baby in a stocking…thanks, Pinterest!  And, while babies certainly make the cutest stocking stuffers, you’ll find even more adorable ways to stuff baby’s first stocking here.

A friend of mine, requests a special stocking from grandma and grandpa for her kiddo’s 1st Christmas gift.  Then, they use those stockings year after year.  I think that’s a pretty good first Christmas gift, don’t you? And, then you take a precious photo like these below to use to embarrass your kids for all of time.  Perfection.

I love this Baby’s 1st Christmas Bucket List that includes driving around your neighborhood looking at Christmas lights, visit Santa, get new Christmas jammies, & tell baby the true meaning of Christmas.  Who says you can’t start these memorable traditions at a young age?

10. Mistletoes Commemorative Footprints

And, last but certainly not least, commemorate your baby’s sweet little mistletoes with Christmas footprints using this adorable kit from My Forever Prints Shop on Etsy.

Better yet, capture those sweet toesies on a Christmas plate like this one.  How cute is that?
