Have you just welcomed a new arrival to the family? It’s such an exciting time, isn’t it? Seeing them participate in the camaraderie of Christmas for the first time is enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. But much like a birthday, first time parents, in particular, find it hard to know exactly what to put under the tree for their babies when their first Christmas comes around.

After all, babies under the age of 1 are only able to express emotion in a limited way, whether this be laughing or crying. It is only on the day that you will find out if they like the present in question. With this in mind, it can be quite difficult to pick the perfect gifts for your new born at Christmas. Although we specialise in early pregnancy scans here at Hello Baby, we also know a thing or two about a baby’s early life too! So we thought we would give you some inspiration on what to get your little one this year.

Something sentimental

If you value a baby’s first Christmas as a substantial moment in their lifetime, then you can’t go wrong with something that they can look back on when they’re older. Perhaps you can create a scrapbook of the time, complete with pictures and crafts to give them a true sense of the special occasion their first Christmas was. You can also create a folder of videos and photos online for them to look back on when they are old enough.

Or if you are more interested in the here and now, you could always give them a toy to unwrap that you make sure you keep by their side. Once they grow out of it you can keep it in a safe place and present it to them when they hit adulthood.

Cute Christmas clothing

You can’t go wrong with seeing your youngest looking cute on the big day, right? Whether you are dressing up to head out for Christmas dinner this year or are enjoying a day in watching the Christmas specials, the festive season is the perfect excuse to dress your baby up in some cute clothes. Whether this be a smarter outfit or even a baby grow that is littered with snow and reindeers, seeing them comfortable will be sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.

Many retailers online have an extensive range of baby clothing that would be the perfect fit. Be sure to browse around before you make a concrete decision, we’re sure you will find the perfect outfit for your baby to rock this Christmas time!

Festive friends

This idea may have crossed your mind already, but there are plenty of cuddly soft toys out there already that are perfect for baby’s to snuggle up to while it is cold outside. That’s right, we’re talking snowmen, reindeer, elves or even Santa himself to provide your little one with a cuddly companion.

You can’t go wrong with these kinds of toys, emphasising the special time of year that Christmas is to your baby, and making their first one that you will remember!

Teether treats

A pivotal part of a baby’s growing process is keeping their teeth strong. With this, it is likely that you have already bought teethers for your baby, but have you considered making them Christmas themed? This gives you a practical gift that you can give to your child that they can use straight away! We at Hello Baby have seen many Christmas teethers scattered across the internet that can be perfectly incorporated into a stocking filler or positioned under the tree itself!

Whether this is a gingerbread man, a snowflake or a Christmas tree, you are bound to find a teether toy that your child will get lots of use out of.

    Honestly had the BEST experience at Hello Baby.
    We had a rocky start to our pregnancy so we have been to hello baby 3 times now just so we can feel reassured and one of which was for our gender scan. We have been made to feel welcome and
    … More comfortable every single time, but today has outdone the previous experiences by far. And they were already hard to beat.
    The lady who scanned my wife spent extra time with us, no rushing, evening helped get our baby moving around so we could see him better. She gave us a plenty time, and then even went the extra mile and gave us a tiny glimpse of him in 4D.
    We cannot recommend them enough. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and all round GREAT experience! Deffo worth going! 🥰🥰

    Had our gender scan today and took the kids so they could be part of it. We travelled quite far for the scan and was well worth it! Really welcoming staff and excellent service at the scan. Scan was really clear and we could clearly see … More he was a boy 💙💙 would definitely recommend.

    Loved our experience at Hello Baby 😃 been here twice ... once in 2018, and again in February 2021. I wanted the gender of my baby kept a surprise as we wanted a gender reveal cannon, and they did not disappoint or give anything away! Staff … More are very friendly and polite. Thank you so much again! Would recommend 5***

    I came here for a private scan because I was not sure how far gone I was. I got a shock to realise I was already half way through pregnancy and I was having a boy. Came here again for a bonding scan and got some lovely photos. The staff … More were really friendly and I enjoyed the experience. Would definitely recommend xxx
  • Kayla H ★★★★★
    Lovely experience for our first scan! We went for an early reassurance scan and that’s exactly what we got. We turned up at the wrong time but they still fitted us in there and then no waiting around. Would recommend to others in the future … More

    Amazing Experience
    I came to Hello Baby with my daughter for an Early and Bonding Scan, unfortunately they was closed for the gender due to lockdown.
    We had the best experience on both occasions, the receptionist was lovely and friendly
    … More and Katie was fantastic and very professional with what she does.
    On my daughters 1st scan she was too early to detect a heart beat so Katie very kindly offered us to come back the following week for a re scan. It was emotional to hear Katie offering her congratulations the following week and we got the best pictures you can get at such a early date.
    The bonding scan, Katie tried her best and wasn’t going to give up as the baby was in the wrong position, we was told to go for a walk and for my daughter to drink a lucozade.
    Upon our return, the baby had moved position and Katie again got us some amazing images.
    Everybody we met at Hello Baby was warm, welcoming and friendly, nothing was to much trouble and wasn’t rushed.
    We was asked on each occasion if we was happy with the scan pictures before buying them.
    Would definitely recommend and wouldn’t go any where else.
    Thank you Katie and team 💕
