Baby's First Christmas Gift Ideas

If the festive season didn’t feel exciting and filled with wonder already, along comes your little one and gives you a fresh perspective on what the Christmas season truly means.

Making that first Christmas special can feel overwhelming, you want everything to be picture perfect but you know they’re not going to remember all the fuss.

Gift giving for your newborn is the easy part, after all, you want to spoil them. But we’ve listed below some thoughtful first Christmas presents that will last well beyond this Christmas and go on to be treasured keepsakes in their lives.


Personalised Books

Building a library of special books can be a wonderful way to begin baby’s first Christmas.

Not only will this help you for all those long nights of bedtime stories, but it will give them many treasured books that will no doubt become lifelong favourites.

This can also be a great way for family and friends to contribute, as you can request that each person buys the baby a book and puts in a personalised message to the baby.

Not only will they be beautiful and personal gifts, but as your child grows they will have so many wonderful books to choose from and be reminded of that special person in their lives who loves them.

Besides, books rather than toys will also save the post-Christmas chaos of trying to find a home for the many toys your little one has been spoilt with.


A Poppie & George Bib

At Poppie & George, our dribble chic bibs are the perfect sentimental gift that is not only practical but also provides the new baby with something they can treasure forever.

By adding their initials to the bib you can create a personalised gift that will bring so much nostalgia in years to come.

You could even use the surname on the bib which would mean they could then pass the bib onto their future children and grandchildren.


A Thoughtful Print

A personalised piece of artwork can be a truly thoughtful gift that can remain in your baby’s life for many years.

From getting a print of the star constellation of when they were born, lyrics of a song from the year they were born, or even a passage from their favourite bedtime story.  There are so many personalised prints and artwork that can give your baby something to keep in their lives well beyond childhood.


Traditional Toys

While your baby will no doubt be inundated with toys from family and friends, requesting more traditional toys can often be a way to make a gift more personal.

Building blocks and even musical instruments, can be far more thoughtful and last longer than many of the noisy plastic toys that line the shops.

As wooden toys can last longer and not lose themselves to toy trends and fads, these can be a wonderful way of buying something traditional that will remain in good condition for many years.

Think about the types of toys you loved playing with as a child and have kept onto, and see if there’s anything similar available for your baby.
