Baby’s First Christmas Gift Guide

Baby’s first Christmas is almost as exciting as their first birthday. You know they won’t remember it, but you will create some amazing memories to look back on. One of the greatest highlights for many parents is their baby’s first photo with Santa. Who doesn’t love seeing a baby crying in terror while Santa Clause smiles for the camera?

You are about to endeavour on the magical journey of elves, reindeer, Christmas trees, decorations and fake snow. It is the best!

The question is, what do you get a baby for its first-ever Christmas? Take it from us; we have got you covered with a list long enough to fill any sleigh. Let’s just hope Rudolph can take the weight!
