Looking for a gift for baby’s first Christmas? My sister in law made us a set of ornaments last year that I just love (here is how she made them). She used each child’s birth announcement and put them inside a clear glass ornament. This is such a thoughtful gift that the kids will enjoy looking at and hanging on the tree year after year. Plus it made me cry when I opened them and I don’t cry, so that says a lot about their sentimental value ;).
A birth announcement isn’t something I ever want to throw out but I never really knew what to do with them either. This is such a nice way to keep them and hold on to that special time.
You can do this with birth announcements or even wedding invitations to celebrate a couple’s first Christmas together. Or any Christmas really, it doesn’t have to be the first if you are really good at holding onto things.
Love, love, love. Everyone has a favourite ornament, what is yours?
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday season.
