Christmas Gift Ideas for Baby's First Christmas

Some things to consider when planning to give a Christmas gift, these tips are good not only for baby's first Christmas gift ideas :

  1. Maybe some time before you buy a baby's first Christmas gift ask the parent make a conversation with the parent, asking some information which may not appear obvious that you will give a gift so that you can have an idea what to give for baby's first Christmas. Ask how many months old is the baby and what does the baby still need, although some parents are just happy to receive gifts for their babies. Make it appear that the conversation is normal and you are not fishing for some information about what gift to give.
  2. If you want to give toys as a baby's first Christmas gift, make sure that it is age (in months) specific. Usually toys go with colorful toys because babies are stimulated by colors
  3. Give a gift which you feel comfortable in giving, no matter what the price is, a gift is still a gift, thoughts always count.
  4. If you are planning to buy baby's first Christmas gift from online store, plan for delivery time, it should have an allowance of delivery time so that when the ordered items arrived and it is not the right one, you can still return the Christmas gift.
  5. This is my own idea, I always put a card, no matter what occasion it is, for Christmas, it is nice because you can always greet the parents and the entire family, include it in the Christmas gift.
  6. When in doubt about sizes, color preference etc. be safe, choose color which are friendly. Friendly colors are like colors which are alright for both sexes.
  7. Baby's Christmas gifts specially toys and baby activity gifts should be appropriate with baby's locomotor and physical development stage, i. e., walkers for baby when they are about to walk.
  8. Remember, a good Christmas gift need not to be expensive, but well thought of gift is the best gift

Baby's First Christmas

Now, we go to baby's first Christmas gift ideas

  1. Photo of the baby and you with the frame -- Get a photo with your camera with the baby and if you did get a good shot with you, you can develop it and put it in a frame, this is a good Christmas gift idea by the way not only for baby's first Christmas but for older children. You can also ask a good picture of the baby and your children for example and put it in a frame. This is a good remembrance.
  2. Baby basket full of baby's first, baby first Christmas song CD, Baby first Christmas stories and other stuff you can put in the basket. Put a ribbon on it.
  3. Baby's First Christmas Photo Album -- these are available with handle and nice covering -- choose the ones who have thick and can contain the usual size of baby pictures.
  4. If you want a gift which you like the baby it use it for longer time, educational toys and books are a good example. Toys should always be age specific and appropriate for their physical developmental stage.
  5. Music CD, instrumental lullabies for babies are good
  6. Knitted caps which they can use during the Christmas as it is winter is also good. Much better if you know how to knit, then you can make a knitted one.
  7. Little boys and girls Christmas ornaments, baby's first Christmas ornament which I saw in some stores and supermarkets including online stores

      My idea is to make a giant basket out of children's book, sweaters, a jacket, ornament, and all other Christmas related items. I am wrapping the basket in batter op blinking Christmas lights and a giant bow to add to the presentation! Lights were three dollars at home depot or walmart

      The "first Christmas" gifts were brought and proffered. They were Gold, frankincense and myrrh. I know where I can get some gold. But could you point me in the direction of some frankincense and myrrh? It is always nice to have pleasant smells around baby, just in case.

      Very good ideas fo that first Christmas baby gifts!

      I like the Christmas gift of a photo for baby's first Christmas. But also maybe take a photo of the baby at their first Christmas and present it to them the following year. Make it your own tradition between the two of you. That way as baby grows up into an adult they will have a marvellous collection of yearly Christmas photos of themselve.

      A lovely hub with wonderful ideas for Christmas gifts for baby. Of course, giving gifts to baby are really for the parents and adults because baby is unaware of celebrating Christmas(smile).
