The holidays are an exciting time of year filled with all the warm feels, good food and quality time with your favorite people. Add in a sweet, squishy baby to the mix and you’ve got an extra special holiday season.

Few things are cuter than a baby dressed to the nines in a festive holiday outfit for photoshoots and family gatherings. There’s also the excitement of picking out the perfect first holiday gift. You may even be looking forward to starting new holiday traditions with your little family.

Another way to honor this festive milestone is gifting baby a “first holiday” themed keepsake ornament. As baby grows, it’ll be one of your favorite pieces to decorate your Christmas tree with year after year.

There are so many ornaments to choose from when shopping for baby’s first holiday ornament. Personalized options often feature baby’s name and even their birth stats. Some bulb-style ornaments allow you to put baby’s hospital band and little striped beanie inside for safe keeping. And picture frame ornaments allow you to showcase your favorite picture from their first year (if you can even choose just one!) or a special ultrasound photo.

No matter your specific style or aesthetic, we’ve made a list of our favorite heirloom-worthy ornaments for baby’s first holiday season.
