Sure, your baby probably won't remember their first couple Christmases, but you will. You'll have pictures and keepsake boxes for the rest of your life to remind you and to show your child when they're old enough to wonder about Christmases past. So what makes a great first Christmas gift? Read on for some of our favorite ideas.
Special Keepsake Gift
For baby's first Christmas, a gift that your little one can save throughout their life and maybe one day pass on to their kids is a perfect choice. A keepsake gift could be something wearable like these adorable booties or this Holiday trimmed bonnet or a sweet stuffed animal like this soft and cuddly bunny. A keepsake is just a gift that can be easily saved for years and years, so simple is best.
Personalized Unique Baby Gifts
If you're gifting something to a family member or friend's baby for their first Christmas, something special and personalized will be much more meaningful than a mass-produced toy or outfit. This beautiful blanket can be customized with baby's name and first Christmas date, or any other special information you'd like to include. Other personalized options could be wall hangings, Christmas stockings or pillows. Personalized gifts are always the perfect options when you're giving it to someone important and their new baby.
We all have that special homemade gift from someone special stored away from our childhood. If you're crafty or artistic, nothing is more special than a homemade gift. So go for it. Crochet that blanket, knit those booties, paint that picture. Whatever your artistic talent may be, your gift will be heartfelt and original. You can always go for something store-bought and accent it with a crafty accessory or homemade card.
Baby's First Christmas Outfit
Something even more memorable than the first holiday gift is probably the baby's first Christmas outfit. It will be featured in picture albums and social media posts for years to come. We love the idea of a neutral-colored one-piece with holiday-themed accents and accessories, like this one from Baby Beau and Belle. Have a fancy holiday photoshoot planned? This gorgeous lace gown could easily be Christmas ready with a few forest green accessories like a headband or bow, or even some velvet booties. For your little man, we think this newsboy style romper would look smashing with a red plaid jacket or bowtie. Your boy will be the coolest looking baby on Santa's lap.
So when you go shopping either in the store or online for baby's first Christmas present, remember that you're giving a gift that will probably be cherished for years to come. Your baby may not understand its importance this year, but they will in the future, and always remember your heartfelt gesture.
