  1. This coming Christmas I will have a baby that is about a month old and am looking for the perfect 1st Christmas ornament. I love the idea of getting a personalized stocking, but the advice I have gotten is to wait until after Christmas to buy one as many places have good deals right after Christmas.

    • You’re right Diana, there are lots of good deals after Christmas, but for Baby’s first I like to have at least a basic stocking to take pictures with. Best wishes.
