7 adorable gift ideas for your baby’s first Christmas

Melody Mates

Help your baby fall asleep easier. Part nightlight, part music box, the Melody Mates pillow and blanket combo is a sweet addition to baby’s nighttime routine. The LED lights glow softly as baby is soothed to sleep by the sounds of classic lullabies.

Melody Mates retails for $29.99+.


Learning to sit is an important milestone. Help keep your baby safe, steady and “snug as a hug” in the super comfy Hugaboo seat. The high sides and back, and attached bottom keep them from falling over and sliding out. When baby can’t be in your arms, this is the next best place.

The Hugaboo retails for $59.99+.

Bazzle Baby Banda Bib

Drool happens. The Banda Bib not only keeps your baby dry, but looking cool, too. The scarf-like style replaces the traditional baby bib and comes in trendy designs such as chevron and animal prints. It’s the perfect accessory for every fashion-forward babe.

The Banda Bib retails for $8.99.


This all-in-one trike will be one of the best purchases you can make for baby. Beginning as early as 10 months, your baby can ride in the SmarTrike, which transitions into four different stages as baby grows. By the time they are three, they’ll end up in a classic tricycle, primed and ready for exploring.

The SmarTrike retails for $99.99+.

Personal Creations Cable Sweater, Hat and Hanger Set

You spent nine months (or more) deciding on the perfect baby name. Proudly show it off embroidered on this beautifully made set. Once baby grows out of it, hang onto it! It’s the perfect keepsake they will treasure when they’re older.

The Personal Creations Cable Sweater, Hat and Hanger Set retails for $44.99.

It’s easy to want to dote on baby to make their first Christmas extra special, but older siblings may feel a twinge of jealousy from all that attention. Here are two gift ideas that are “only-big-kids-allowed” to get them excited, too.

The classic game that you played growing up gets a serious upgrade that older kids will love. Bigger spills and bigger squeals are guaranteed. Just remind them not to play during baby’s nap time.
