If it's your baby's first Christmas then you're probably on the lookout for elf outfits, personalised baubles and keepsakes. You've come to the right place.
Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year (cue song) for many, but even more so when it’s your baby’s first Christmas. There’s something overwhelmingly cute about a bubba dressed as an elf, a personalised bauble on the Christmas tree and a sleigh-load of knick-knacks documenting your tiny tot‘s very first festive season! So here’s where to get a mountain of memorabilia in honour of your small human’s first visit from Santa…
GIFTS & KEEPSAKES FOR YOUR BABY’S FIRST CHRISTMAS
1. All the firsts
It’s a HUGE occasion, so you’re probably going to want to buy something special to mark your baby’s first Christmas. Something that you can keep for years to come and pull out of a box and wonder where your cute tot went in years to come (and to question who this grouchy teen is that you now have to force Xmas upon).
First off, how about sitting back on the couch with your tiny person on a cute-as-a-button family cushion by Gifts Less Ordinary to admire a lovely (if a little extravagant) baby’s first Christmas bauble by Harrods? And while you’re decorating the tree, pop on this nature-inspired ornament by Rustic Ornament Gifts.
You’re also going to need a personalised special sack for Santa to pop all of baby’s first presents into (it took so long to pick a baby name, so put it on everything, we say). We like the ones by Brightstar Kids, or these Baby’s First Christmas numbers by Gifts Less Ordinary.
Stockings? We love the cuties by Pretty Little Customs, or the simple-but-super-sweet stockings by Sophie Natasha Store. Our tip? Fill them with crinkly paper and let your little one use them as a sensory toy rather than packing them with presents they probably don’t need.
2. Dressing bubba up as Santa or an elf is practically obligatory
Make the most of baby’s first Christmas and use it as an excuse to break out ridiculously cute outfits. It’s all good fodder for later down the line when you’re pulling out the bribery big guns on your defiant teenager (trust us). We love this unisex Elf pyjama set from Happidoo and this Santa outfit so much we’re tempted to get one made in our size…
3. You don’t want to spoil that special outfit
So you’re going to need a bib. A Christmas-themed bib of course! We’re loving these cute personalised Xmas bibs from Etsy which are perfect for little dribblers!
4. Photo frames and photo books to save those Christmas memories
There will be around a gazillion pics taken during baby’s first Christmas, so pop your fave into a photo frame! This one from RiverRoots Collective is simple and super cute! It’s not going to hurt to jot down all the fun you had on the big day in a beautiful first memories book either. The lovely book by Kikki-K gets our vote. And don’t forget a personalised wooden box to store them in!
No one ever said that babies were cheap… Ho ho ho!
