The day I held my newly born daughter in my arms was the best day of my life. My only thoughts were of my great future responsibility in bringing her up and how I wished to make each day a happy one for her. Just like all other parents, I too was eager to document all the firsts – the first smile, teeth, steps and words – with numerous photographs and videos and also by keeping a diary of all her life’s major events. So, for this Christmas I want to make it extra special by inviting all our friends and family and exchanging loads of presents and also personalizing my baby’s first Christmas stocking.
Details are very important for me so I am never going to forget my baby’s first Christmas stocking. When done right, the baby’s first Christmas stocking can be a childhood memento that can be used repeatedly over the years. This is why I wanted to make sure I find the perfect one for my daughter failing which I eventually ended up getting one custom made.
You will find numerous stores that allow parents to customize their baby’s first Christmas stocking. You can personally design the stocking at your own leisure as most of these stores are online and they can process your order at any time throughout the year. As a matter of fact, this is exactly what I was looking in a store and I did not want to wait for the holiday season and its accompanying rush. Other things that I particularly checked on the website before ordering my baby’s first Christmas stocking were the quality of the material used, detailed pictures of stockings that were previously made by them, the length of time the store had been operational and any testimonials from satisfied customers. Price was also on my list but not nearly as important as these factors. It had to be the most special Christmas for my baby and I was ready to shell out any price to make it so!
After days of endless research, I finally found the store that suited my needs. It looked like they would do a swell job on my baby’s first Christmas stocking. I spoke with the owner over the phone and she reassured me that her staff would do their best in making sure that my baby’s first Christmas stocking would exceed expectations. So I proceeded to tell her what I had in mind and waited (quite anxiously) for the order to be delivered.
When it finally arrived, the finished product took my breath away! It was surely the kind of childhood memento I was looking for and was bound to bring my daughter years of joy. I just can’t wait for the holidays now so I can hang it up by the fireplace.
