What do you get a baby for their first christmas?

Tagged in:

Your babies first christmas is just such a special time, and the best thing? It only gets better as they get bigger! It's the perfect time to get out the christmas nappies, novelty outfits and the tiny stockings to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. With Christmas preparation in full swing, you're likely to be starting to think about what presents you want to get for your little one!

Whilst everyone has a different budget, we thought we'd keep our suggestions simple by following the rule;


  • Something you want
  • Something you need
  • Something to wear
  • Something read


Something they want

Now you'll know best what your little one loves, and obviously depending on how old they are is the main decider for what to get them - nine times out of ten the box the presents come in is the most interesting part for them! We'd recommend toys that are great for development as well as fun, there are so many now on the market, so a good starting point would be looking into the best toys for 1 year old and under as a gift that your little one will enjoy. We love Envirotoy for plastic free toys if you're looking for eco-friendly toys this Christmas.


Something they need

No matter what age your little one is, you'll be well aware they grow out of absolutely everything at the speed of light, so Christmas is the perfect time to top up on clothing pieces ahead of the new year. This doesn't have to be expensive items, these days with second hand sellers like Depop, Vinted and Facebook market place, you can find some brand new items for a fraction of the price! There are also amazing ethical clothing brands like Frugi, who have gorgeous organic cotton clothing for babies and beyond.


Something to wear

It wouldn't be babies first christmas without a TotsBots Christmas nappy! Not only will they look absolutely adorable in their festive fluff, you can nab a christmas nappy from just £7.14 with our epic 45% off sale running at the moment. 


Something to read

It's never too early to introduce your little one to reading, encouraging a love for books is a great way to stimulate your babies ever-expanding brain! We love this collection from Mother&Baby which lists the board books for babies, including reviews and feedback from parents.
