Ever wondered what in the world you could possibly buy a baby for Christmas? Me too! This is the reason I’ve put together a ‘first Christmas’ gift guide. ”But wait, they don’t need a lot”, I hear you say. I disagree. Babies need a hell of a lot and Christmas is the perfect opportunity to delegate out gifts for the next few month’s of your baby’s life. In the long run, this can save you a bit of money, it can save gifts getting duplicated and then they’ll have everything you need in the run up to their birthday.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t want to fork out on gifts for my child, I just don’t see the point in going completely crazy when they won’t really understand and/or appreciate it and babies just want to play with boxes anyway, don’t they? Yes, I took him to see Father Christmas but no I didn’t spend hundreds on him. He won’t remember that but it’s still nice to create those kinds of memories. If you’re looking for a few ideas, then this first Christmas gift guide has some for you! It’s not something I’ve put my heart and soul into and it’s just a list of everything Toby got for his first Christmas but if it gives you some inspiration, then I think it’s a good a guide as any!
