Gifts For Baby’s First Christmas

in GIFTS

By Linnea Covington

When it comes to Baby’s first Christmas, remember: It’s also the parents’ first with their little one. While the baby probably won’t remember what, Mom and Dad certainly will, which is why it’s important to make that premier gift shine. You can bring them something to treasure for years, the perfect toy to help their baby Einstein move forward, or even a darling outfit that will be memorialized in many photos to come.

Cute Outfits

A great option in the clothing category is a simple bib that says “Baby’s First Christmas” on it. While not fancy, this little accessory looks adorable on Junior and also proves a real necessity come dinnertime. Plus, you can be sure it will show up at least once in the photo album. Another option: Look for a darling holiday outfit like a ruby-red velvet dress for a girl, or Baby’s first Armani suit if you are shopping for a little boy. Of course, a soft, snug sleeper will also please mom and dad, especially one with an adorable saying on it.

New-School Tools

Educational toys, too, prove a great first Christmas gift, and one that a baby will use pretty quickly (and might even give Mom and Dad a moment of peace). Just about anything from Baby Einstein works well, like one of their colorful activity centers, or a Baby Einstein plush clip-on toy with rattles, mirrors, things to chew on, and enough fun textures to keep the tot entertained.

Old-School Treasures

Though baby won’t be able to play with it for some time, a plush rocking horse is a great addition to the nursery decor. The best part is that you can actually choose any animal you might want—from a lamb to a fox to a giraffe, or even a soft and cozy train. Then, when Baby is old enough to play with it, the gift comes alive again.

Finally, the keepsake that will hopefully keep forever, a baby’s first Christmas ornament. Every year, as they place the beautiful bauble on the tree, they will remember the kind loved one who so thoughtfully gave it to them.
