Baby's 1st Christmas: Gift Ideas

Since we're going into the Holidays and loved ones will soon be asking for gift ideas (if they haven't started already!) I thought I'd put together some suggestions, since it can be hard to know (or decide!) what to get the lil one for their first Christmas. Whether you prefer sentimental, practical, or just plain fun gifts, there's something on this list for even the most pampered baby! (sorry, I couldn't help myself!)

Prices in CAD.

For sentimental gift ideas, think of keepsakes that can be enjoyed each year: ornaments, hand and foot print kits, photo frames,etc. Below are two of my favourites for this year.

Customizable Baby's First Christmas Ornament- $10 (m4keshiftmichelle)
A rustic take on the classic 1st Christmas!



Clay Hanging Keepsake Kit (makes 2)- $13 (Amazon)
Make your own, or have one made! (click here)
Keep one for your tree or perfect for the Grandparents!


For practical gifts, think of items that you've heard other parents swear by... This can include classic choices, 'survival kit' tools such as teethers, or financial contributions towards savings accounts (a favourite for Grandparents).

Sophie the Giraffe- $24 (Babies R Us)
(Remember my post on Teething? Enough said) ;)




Munchkin Figure 8 Teether- $4 (Amazon & pretty much everywhere you find Munchkin products) 
I know a Mom who swears by this!


Giant Piggy Bank- $49.50 (Chapters/ Indigo)
Practical and fun! Start saving for college in style!



Fun gifts can run the gamut for fun for baby or fun for Mom & Dad. Whether you want some toys to entertain the lil one or a novelty item that tickles your fancy (we have to enjoy dressing them while they let us choose their wardrobe!) some of the best gifts are the ones that are just for fun!

Keyboard Kylie- $44 (Discovery Toys)
Fun AND educational??? Perfect!


Baby Toms- $39.50 (Chapters/ Indigo)
Remember my Retail Therapy post with these?
All I can say is OMG! I want these!!!


Taggie Toy- prices vary (Blink Kids)
Fun textures for little hands!


I hope these ideas give you some inspiration to kickstart your Christmas wish list! What was the best gift you've been given for your lil one? I'd love to hear!
