If you’re celebrating Baby’s First Christmas, congratulations! Experiencing Christmas as a parent is SO magical and it’s so much fun to create that magic for your child. But it can be hard to shop for First Christmas gifts; after all, babies don’t need a ton, aside from the essentials, and it’s likely that your baby is going to be spoiled by well-meaning friends and family. If you have people asking what to buy baby for their first Christmas, this is a handy list of tried & true first Christmas faves :).
Here are 12 of my favorite gift ideas for baby boys and baby girls for Christmas – check out my favorite:
Baby’s First Christmas Gift Ideas
Wooden Piggy Bank – this is gorgeous and only $15! Such a great way to start saving some cash for baby. This piggy bank would be gorgeous in a nursery with any style decor!
Bell Ornament – each of my kids has a personalized bell ornament from my Aunt and they’re some of my favorites on the tree! Each child loves looking for his/her special bell ornament and I love that they are personalized. Totally an heirloom piece that any baby will appreciate for years to come! And a great non-toy gift to give!
Reindeer Stuffed Animal – I just grabbed one of these this year because it was SO cute – I’ll pull it out every Christmas as a snuggly little piece of decor. Bonus if you take it to a local embroidery shop to get monogrammed!
Christmas PJs – cannot resist purchasing all the Christmas PJs for my babies! This pair and print is our favorite because they are SO soft, wash so well, and we buy them year after year.
Personalized Night Before Christmas Book – this book is my favorite to read to the kids every year on Christmas Eve – my dad read it every year to me! – and the personalization is a great touch for a first Christmas gift for baby!
Kids’ Chair – my parents get one of these personalized mini chairs for each of my kids on their first Christmases. Definitely something they need to grow into but they make a great “big” gift for baby that isn’t a toy.
Personalized Stroller Blanket – another personalized option for baby’s first Christmas. So soft and just an overall great gift for any baby – a great keepsake.
Pom Hat – this hat is insanely cute, Emmy wears it all the time and I always get compliments on it. A great practical gift for a baby girl!
Banana Toothbrush/Teether – hands down, my favorite teether and toy for a baby. I was a Sophie fan with my eldest two, but this baby, I’m a banana convert! It’s less expensive and still super cute, with no possibility of getting moldy on the inside.
Personalized Baby Block – one of my girlfriends gifted us this personalized baby block after Emmy was born – it includes her initial, stats, full name, and is such a cute keepsake. This is a perfect gift for baby’s first Christmas but also makes a great new baby gift!
Hooded Towel – these are the most adorable, monogrammable hooded towels. Absolutely a staple in our house and a great practical gift that baby and mommy will appreciate 😉
Activity Block – this is the one toy Emmy is getting this year – so reasonably priced (under $60!) and it has a 5-star rating on hundreds of reviews. Will last for years!
