Baby’s first Christmas. There's only one, but with the tiny ones not really knowing whats going on, it can be hard to find the first Christmas gift that's spot on. Fear not, we've got some ideas for that meaningful present that hits the spot on the sentimental front and takes the little one’s interest away from that wrapping paper.

The keepsake

Everyone has a cuddly toy or blanket that they’ve had since they were tiny. So make your gift the one they treasure. Wee Gallery has a range of educational comforters and bears made from organic cotton. Also on the organic front is the Petit Collage Organic activity toy. With different textures, it develops tactile skills. Looking for timeless style? This OYOY Hopsi Bunny Doll is your pick. Soft and in a Scandi design, it looks great in a buggy or on a shelf.

Grow with me

Multi-activity toys that grow with a baby mean they'll make the most of your gift. A Multi-Activity Cube with lots of developmental toys, is a great option. Another one of our faves is the Skip Hop 3 Stage Activity Centre. Starting off as a bouncer, there's also 25 activities to keep toddlers happy, before turning into an activity and craft table afterwards. Just buy the matching chair on their second Christmas!

Wooden wonders

Wooden toys have been made to last the test of time making them a perfect keepsake. We love Grimm’s toys, which are open ended and can be used for play and decor after they’ve finished. Painted in waterbased oils they are safe for even the smallest ones to chew. Alternatively, a wooden play arch is great for keeping the smallest ones occupied and makes a stylish addition to any home - that’ll keep parents happy then.

Sensory sensations

Sensory play is so important for the newbies. We love this monochrome Wee Gallery Organic Puzzle Sensory ball that features different textures and shapes - great for stimulating both visual and tactile senses. Similarly, these B.Toys Odd Balls are four unique balls with fun colours and patterns that can be bounced, kicked, squeezed and rolled all day long.
