First Christmas pressie - lots of pressure! We're joking, but who are you trying to impress, really? Babies are pretty entertained by anything novel. So, whatever your budget, you'll find something cool in our First Christmas shop that'll hit the spot. But if you'd like a bit of a steer, here are some absolute faves for that first festive pressie.
FOR BUILDING FUN: Little Dutch Stacking Train
There are so many ways they can arrange and stack the coloured bricks and make different train combinations - which is all great for their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. It's one of those gorgeous classic toys that also looks lovely on the shelf, and fits with any room's colour scheme.
FOR SHELF APPEAL: Trixie Mrs Rabbit Puzzle
We love that both chunky pieces are perfect for baby or toddler hands to manage and are ideal to feature in all kinds of imaginary stories.
FOR UNDER 6 MONTHS: A Baby Gym
A baby gym is always a treat for a smaller baby and the Little Dutch Wooden Baby Gym comes with everything you need included, from the attractive wood frame to 3 soft toys - ready for the small recipient to try to bat & grab. It makes playpen or tummy time miles more fun, encouraging hand-eye coordination and stimulating their senses.
FOR OVER 6 MONTHS: A TriClimb
Pickler triangles are all the rage because they're amazingly versatile. An indoor climbing frame first designed by eminent paediatrician Dr Emmi Pickler - babies from around 9 months will love learning to pull themselves up to the top, developing their motor skills while they gain confidence. Once they become more coordinated, they can move across to the other side and climb down. As well as being fab to climb, it's a den with a sheet over the top, can be set up like a baby gym, or paired with the Triclimb Biri or Miri accessories for even more fun. As a gift, genuinely warrants the term 'awesome'.
FOR THE BIG GIFT: Janod's Rocking Elephant
This pretty wooden Rocking Elephant is an ideal big pressie pick. Looks super cute in the corner and you can remove the rail as they get bigger and more confident. It's a great way for them to learn to balance while on a playroom safari.
