Baby’s Christmas is always so special- especially for first-time parents in trying so hard to create memories and wanting to do everything right. Read what we decided to give to Kian as his second Christmas present.
If you have a baby, you’ll know how much effort goes into making Christmas special for them- and a lot of effort goes into spoiling them with gifts! Last year, I gave this a lot of thought. About the message I wanted our gifts to give him. As Kian’s very first
Gift of Giving - last year's gift
Christmas gift, we decided to give him the gift of giving and made a donation to help less fortunate children through NSPCC in his name (read more here.)
And this year, we decided to give him the gift of experience and quality time. Yes, we try do this everyday, but as his Christmas gift, we took him to Winter Wonderland in London and watched his face light up as he saw all the lights and went on his first ride! I loved him taking in his new surroundings and new sights and he looked fascinated by the London tube! We had a beautiful day as a little family and have made some lovely memories.
I want him to know that first you give, and then when it comes to yourself, the most valuable thing you can give anyone is your time and nothing more precious can come from it than an experience and memory. When all is said and done, we don’t remember that great outfit we got, but we remember moments that made us feel good, with the people we love. Granted – he is too young to fully remember all of this, but I think that lessons are learned through our everyday interactions and being able to set an example.
Hope you’re all having a beautiful Christmas with your loved ones and making the most of your time together. Sending you all lots of love.
