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.
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!
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!
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.
Here at Hello Baby, we are able to provide a 4D baby scan early on in your pregnancy so you can see your baby, possibly for the first time, and get an idea of what the gender could be (though it’s important to note that these scans are never 100% accurate) If you want the very best private baby scan near me, then Hello Baby is the answer!
