November 29, 2022

Baby’s first Christmas is a huge event for new parents and grandparents. It can be a very special time to show your baby how much they mean to you, as well as allow them to experience all the joys of opening Christmas gifts for themselves for the very first time. Plus, it is an opportunity to make some beautiful memories together that you and your baby will treasure for years to come. 

Of course, as a baby’s first Christmas is such an important occasion, it goes without saying that you will want to choose the perfect Christmas for them. The good news is that you will find a comprehensive range of gift ideas that are sure to delight and amaze, below. 

Soft Toys 

Soft toys make a great gift for babies on their first Christmas because they are cuddly and comforting, and can help the little ones develop important motor skills as they reach out to hold onto them. They also provide endless hours of entertainment, meaning your child will be kept busy while you enjoy some well-deserved time off! 

Choose from our gorgeous plush koala, nursery lamb, little raccoon, or cute llama options to wrap and put under the tree this year. 

Soft Books 

If you are looking for the ideal gift for a baby’s first Christmas, a soft book is another excellent choice. This is because soft books such as our Learning Resources Bright Basics Snuggly Soft Book Mat with Soft Toys are cuddly, which helps to soothe the baby and make them feel calm. Soft books also help to stimulate the senses in young babies because they introduce bright colours and interesting textures, which encourage exploration. 

 Additionally, soft books like our Zoo – Baby’s First Cloth Book last longer than other gifts because they can be used over and over again, making them a great investment for parents. If you are looking for the perfect gift for a baby’s first Christmas, then soft books should definitely be at the top of your list! 


Another amazing gift that is perfect for Baby’s first festive season is a soft and snuggly baby blanket. Huggy blankets like this Afrique Elephant or this Afrique Giraffe option, make a great gift for a baby’s first Christmas because they are soft, snuggly, and comforting. 

Blankets like this cute and educational Baby Einstein Tinker Peekaboo Blanket and this Putty Nursery Panda blanket help to soothe and calm the baby, while also providing stimulation through bright colours and interesting textures. Additionally, they can be used again and again, making them a great investment for parents. 

Teethers and Comforters 

Teethers and comforters are another great gift option for a baby’s first Christmas, as they provide important sensory stimulation while soothing the baby and helping them to feel calm. These small toys are fun and engaging for little ones, as they can be chewed on or played with during many hours of tummy time. They also help to promote the development of motor skills, as babies can use them to grasp and grab. 

Choose from a selection of adorable comforters such as the Putty Nursery Cow Lovey, Little Knottie Fox, or the Leika Little Raccoon Lovey. Alternatively, why not opt for a fun teething ring like this Leika Little Owl Teether that Baby will love, and can help provide much-needed quiet time for parents too? Give a gift that will help to soothe and entertain your little one this Christmas!
