If you’re celebrating your Baby’s First Christmas, congratulations!
Experiencing Christmas as a parent is SO magical and it’s so much fun to be the maker of that magic for your child.
But – honestly – 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’ve ever wondered – ‘What do you get a baby for their first Christmas?!’ or ‘Do you buy your baby Christmas presents?’ (I think yes, but totally up to you!) or ‘What do you buy a baby for Christmas?’ or ‘What are good stocking stuffers for babies?‘ – I’ve got you covered!
In this baby’s first Christmas gift guide, I have a mix of fun and practical – perfect for any baby girl or baby boy’s first Christmas.
Here are 24 of my favorite gift ideas for baby boys and baby girls for Christmas – check out my favorite:
The Best Baby’s First Christmas Gift Ideas
1 // Ceramic Piggy Bank – adorable and under $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!
2 // 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!
3 // 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!
4 // Christmas PJs – cannot resist purchasing all the Christmas PJs for my babies! This pair and print are by far our favorite because they are SO soft, wash so well, and we buy them year after year. My grand plan is to make a blanket from all the kids’ Christmas pjs someday.
5 // 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!
6 // Kids’ Chair – my parents get one of these personalized chairs for each of my kids on their first Christmases and they still sit in them today! Definitely something they need to grow into but they make a great “big” gift for baby that isn’t a toy.
7 // 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 (under $10!) and still super cute, with no possibility of getting moldy on the inside.
8 // Foldable Wagon with Canopy – every family with kids needs a wagon and this one is foldable, has a canopy (a must for my fair-skinned kids!), and one side unzips for stadium seating. AND it’s under $100 and has almost 5 stars on 2,000+ reviews.
9 // Pom Hat – this hat is insanely cute, comes in ivory, blush, navy and grey, and it’s under $15. A great practical gift for a baby boy or girl!
10 // 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.
11 // Bookcase/Toy Chest Combo – this is such a cute bookcase/toy storage combo for a great price (under $90!). Perfect for a playroom or nursery to hold allthethings.
12 // 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!
13 // Silicon Placemat / Plate – so great for keeping in the diaper bag for meals out or just using at home as a non-skid plate
14 // 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!
15 // Play Mat – This play mat is realllly cute and has great reviews; makes a great gift for newborns.
16 // 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 ;). They’re for babies but work for my bigger kids, too, so you’ll get years of use from these.
18 // Flexible Blocks – these little blocks are great for teeny tiny hands and babies who love to put EVERYTHING in their mouths.
19 // Mini Robe – not a must but REALLY cute, made for babies 0-9 months.
20 // The Wonderful Things You Will Be – a beautiful book with a beautiful sentiment. Perfect for a first Christmas, birthday, baby shower – anything.
22 // Bath Toy Holder – for all the bath toys you’ll inevitably be adding over the year – trust me 😉
24 // Play Table – this is great for new standers/cruisers. Lots of ‘activities’ for baby to try and it’s under $25.
25 // Hand/Footprint Ornament – make your own footprint or handprint keepsake ornament without any baking or mixing. I made the mistake of DIYing Quinn a salt dough handprint and it totally crumbled the second year we pulled it out. This is a whole lot easier and has great reviews.
