Precious Stockings for Baby’s First Christmas

by Ally

The holidays are just around the corner and there is so much to do but the time spent making precious stockings for baby's first Christmas will be well worth your while! There are gifts to make and to buy, decorations to sort and those of us who welcomed a new addition to the family this year are looking for ways to commemorate baby's first Christmas.

Ornaments and stockings for baby's first Christmas make great shower gifts.

Our family has one special stocking (made so long ago by my mother’s grandmother) that we hang for each new baby’s 1st holiday.

For those of you just starting your own family holiday traditions I have gathered a few precious selections that will look amazing on the mantelpiece year after year!
