Baby Gift Ideas
Posted by Mary McBride
When I was a baby, my mom and my aunt began a holiday tradition that is now continuing into its second generation. It is a beautiful and simple tradition, but one that has decorated my own holiday tree, and thus my holidays, with special memories. Each year from my first Christmas onward, my mom and my aunt went to Hallmark and chose ornaments for each other’s children, and our two families would get together each year to unwrap them and find out what would be on our tree. My brother and I have an ornament from each year of our childhood, as do my cousins.
Taking the ornaments out of their storage boxes and hanging them on the tree each year is still one of my favorite holiday traditions, simply looking at each one as I place it on the tree, and remembering which year it was, and what I was doing then, and what I liked. There are quite a lot of Winnie the Pooh ornaments, as the Pooh stories have always had a special place in my heart. As I looked through the Hallmark ornament selection this year, I was delighted to see that there was a Baby’s First Christmas ornament featuring my favorite bear.

Ever since my husband I started dating (way back in high school) we’ve had a tradition of making/buying an ornament every year. When we were younger, we would make each other funny little ornaments. One year, I made him a popsicle stick frame ornament with a photo of us in it, and he made me a light-up Christmas tree ornament in his electronics class. Now, we stick to buying ornaments each year. Some years, they are significant and represent something special about the year, and other years, we just choose one that we think will look pretty on the tree. Since we have a daughter, it’s a fun tradition to share with her, and now she gets a yearly ornament too!

My mother is already urging me to get the kids’ Christmas wishlist to her so she can get her shopping done. It’s not even Thanksgiving, but I understand her desire to cross things off her list so she can sit back, relax and enjoy the holidays — although as a grandmother of 12, not sure how much relaxing she’ll actually be doing! In case you’re in the same situation as me, and are trying to find the perfect gift for the sweet baby in your life, or need to send some suggestions to baby’s grandma, this round up of some of my favorite Disney items are sure to be a hit come Christmas morning.
