Your Baby's First Holiday

17 magical ways to make it memorable.

We know baby is the best gift you've ever gotten -- but how to make this special time of year special for someone who won't even remember it? You'll remember, so go for the magic. Here's what to do -- and what to skip -- for baby's first holiday.

Get a New Holiday Game Plan
You've been through this before: When you got married, you had to figure out how to split up the holidays (alternating Thanksgiving and Christmas with his family and yours every other year; Hanukkah shared with both, etc.). Now that you have a family of your own, this is the year to decide what's yours and what's your parents'. Where will you have the big holiday dinner? Where will you open presents? Make those decisions now and be clear with your families to avoid any hurt feelings later. Want baby to wake up in her own home Christmas morning? Invite family members to come to you (if you're comfortable hosting) -- if not, make plans to see them later.
