1. Sock Monkey Ornament
If you want cuddly vibes in an ornament celebrating your snuggly little one, this sock monkey is the perfect choice.

While that tradition is long gone, this little porcelain baby shoe is a perfect way to commemorate the year of your baby's first holiday. You can even add a little DIY personalization—there are lines on the bottom of the shoe to write in the baby's name.

This wooden piece is ideal for use as an ornament to commemorate the first holiday season spent with your child if you prefer a simpler design. The ornament is made of natural wood that has been laser-cut, and we really like how it looks even though there is nothing else added to it. However, if you are the creative type who enjoys giving things a personal touch, the wood makes an excellent canvas for painting on.
9. Baby's First Christmas Whimsical Ornament
This delicate ceramic ornament is the ideal way to welcome your child into their first Christmas spent with the family and would make a wonderful gift. An ornament that doesn't draw too much attention to itself but still manages to spread holiday cheer thanks to a wintry scene and the year painted on the front of the piece
