Gift ideas for baby’s first Christmas

Gift ideas for baby’s first Christmas

Our baby boy’s first Christmas is coming up, and we couldn’t be more giddy. The lights, the wrapping paper, all the attention, he’s going to love it.

Determined not to go overboard, we’ve selected him just a few special gifts, that we know he’ll really love.

Bound to look beautiful under our Christmas tree, this Volkswagen Red Beetle Baby Walker by Hape is the perfect toy for him to grow into over the coming months. With help, Harry has started to pull himself up, and a walker is the perfect way to encourage him to develop these new skills.

Just the job for carrying around and storing his toys, the no-skid wheels are ideal for wobbly new walkers. Really sturdy, the walker itself was easy to build, and as with all Hape wooden toys is of exceptional quality.

We’ve previously featured a pull along Elephant and building blocks from Hape, and loved them just as much. Without a doubt, they are always my first stop for traditional toys for babies and toddlers, you just can’t go wrong!

As well as his baby walker, we also picked up a few wooden cars for Harry to play with. Wrapped up ready for him to open, we were very kindly sent this gorgeous personalised wrapping paper from Pretty Gifted.

Printed with ‘Happy First Christmas Harry,’ we were able to choose even the tiniest details. The font style & size, the colours of the print and paper, even the little Christmas tree icon, every element was left up to us. The wrapping paper itself is of lovely quality, and reflects light beautifully.

Feeling nostalgic, I really wanted something small to pop in our baby’s memory box, and this 1st Christmas bear comforter from Mamas and Papas is perfect. Unbelievably soft, and really cute, I just know Harry is going to love snuggling up to it when its time for his post-christmas dinner nap.

One of our go-to baby brands, Mamas and Papas have a lovely festive range this year. I think we’re going to have to pick up one of these 1st Christmas baubles. Time goes so quickly, and I really don’t think you can have too many mementos, it’ll be lovely to hang on our tree each year.

Harry is a little too young for chocolate yet, but he keeps eyeing up this gold coin from Divine. Mesmerised by his reflection in the foil, he’s happy enough looking at it, let alone eating it. Of course, we’ll ‘help’ Harry polish it off once we’ve got our feet up following the Christmas rush….

Last but not least, I’ll be writing about Harry’s personalised Snowman and the Snowdog book in a separate post, coming up tomorrow.

This time last year I spent the festivities in the second trimester, having just found out we were expecting a baby boy. This year, sharing Christmas with our baby boy will be a dream come true, and we’re going to enjoy every minute.
