Did 2019 bring in a new bundle of joy for someone close in your family or for your friend? Then, it’s time to celebrate and all the more with Christmas knocking on the door! A baby’s first Christmas is special not just for the baby and the parents, but for everyone in the family and friend group! Make this festive holiday all the more memorable for the smallest celebrant in the house by gifting them something extra special. From festive outfits and personalised gift sets to precious keepsakes and first Christmas toys—you can go for any of these or, if you’re extra AF, all of them at once. The adorable little wonder will be ready to rock its Christmas in style thanks to the coolest aunt or uncle!
Anyone fancy Christmas jumpers? While it may not be the best weather for warm, fuzzy sweaters, baby Christmas dressing is a little more flexible than that.
From sparkly tulle skirts in red and white to plush Santa sleepsuits, you can never go wrong with Christmas-themed clothing. With a baby in the house, it’s only natural for first-time parents to miss out on this little intricate clothing detail while prepping the house for the baby’s first Christmas dinner or party. A well-thought-of gift from you would only save the day! Reindeer onesies, Santa pyjamas, polar bear knit jumpers, they are too cute to miss.
Pair up with a sweet elf hat or a snuggly slipper and you are good to go!
As cliché as they may seem, babies can never have too many toys to chew on or learn from. So, head along to the nearest toy shop in town and go all out! You’ll be literally spoiled for choice—gingerbread houses, mini Christmas tree plushies, Rudolph the reindeers, giraffe rattles, nativity miniature sets, snowman playsets, Christmas-themed teethers—you get it: the options are too many to zero on just one. Don’t blame us if you end up swiping your card for a basket full of toys! But it’ll be worth it when you see the widest toothless smile on the adorable little fella! Have fun!
Cuddle and snuggle!
Babies love to cuddle, so we’ve got the perfect gift idea for you: pick up a stuffed animal that either folds out into a pillow, warms up for a sweet hug, or even wraps out as the blankie friend and substitutes as a fun thumbie. These ultimate cuddle buddies, with a perfect combination of softness, cuteness and cuddliness, would soon be the little one’s new best friend before you even know it! Pick up a snuggler with a loveable character and your Christmas gift is sorted!
Put their name on it!
If you’re looking for something extra special for the cute little bundle your sister/best friend just popped out, go for personalised Christmas gifts. From bath and bedtime hampers to baby’s first Christmas sack or stocking, you can personalise just about anything these days. Even Christmas baubles and decorations!
Cherished as keepsakes for years to come, your sister or friend would surely love the thought you put into it. When the little one outgrows, these keepsakes will remind them how special the first festive season was!
Box of goodies
What’s a Christmas if not for a box of goodies? Even the little one is not too young for it! If you’re pressed for time or a gift for the newest entrant totally skipped your mind, you can always count on a box of goodies to do the trick for you. Stack in some Christmas themed cookies, chocolates, gingerbread loaves, cupcakes, and/or muffins in a festive box and you can surely win your way into the heart of through its stomach.
If you don’t quite trust the magic of sweet everythings, it may pay to ask the new mum what kind of baby formula they use. After all, they’ve probably already done a good amount of research to make sure their baby eats food that’s safe, full of nutrients, and have undergone proper baby food testing!
