Celebrating your baby's First Christmas is the most magical time for you and your wider family. It’s a time to create new traditions, make the most wonderful memories and of course a time to give them a gift that can not only be enjoyed for their first year but hopefully one that can be treasured for years to come.
I've created a gift guide to help give you some ideas for your little one's first Christmas. And if you have a first Christmas gift to buy, maybe for a niece or a nephew or special family friend - this guide has an array of price points covered.
Teethers, Rattles & Bath Toys
We love our new range of Tikiri toys, they are ideal for keeping baby entertained and make a perfect stocking filler. The rattle inside the toys gives a soft sound and is great for everyday play and teething. They are fully sealed for hygiene so make a great addition to bath time or water play.
Sound toys, like rattles provide stimulation to babies as they discover their senses. By creating sound, your child starts to learn fundamental lessons in cause and effect relationships. These baby rattles are handmade, sustainable natural rubber baby toys and are 100% plastic free. Available in lots of animal shapes and beautiful colours, discover the range here.
Our Nana Huchy and Albetta heirloom dolls are simply magical and will be the Christmas gift that is cherished for many years to come. These dolls embody the elegance of a time gone by and combine it with a fresh, practical purpose. You'll discover beautiful materials, the colour palette of a child's imagination and superior quality that reflects the time taken ensuring every piece is meticulously crafted. When baby is small these dolls make a beautiful addition to the nursery interior and will become their best friend as they grow. Discover our full selection of rattles, princesses, ballerinas, cowboys and much more here.

A fantastic first toy for your toddler, as it helps to develop focus and concentration.

Ride Ons have always been a big hit at Christmas for many years. They are known to provide absolute fun and enjoyment for kids as well as help foster their sense of freedom and choice. They also have a number of benefits for children’s early childhood development journey including helping to develop mobility and motor skills, they promote exercise and physical coordination, they also encourage sharing and cooperation. We have a number of great Ride On options for your little one this Christmas. Here are a couple of my favs.
Push and Pull toys
I always love the idea of giving a gift that can be grown into, and our beautiful wooden doll stroller is hand painted and has a sturdy frame for wobblers to lean on as they learn to get around. With an organic cotton seat for doll and rose coloured hand painted frame, this is definitely an heirloom quality toy. Fall in love with this stroller here.
We have a range of pull-along toys that actually promote many different aspects of your toddler’s development: problem-solving, whole body coordination, and fine motor strength. Our beautiful range of pull along toys are hand made from wood and with knitted wool detail. This will give hours of fun and is the perfect companion as baby begins to walk and move around. See our pull alongs here.
I think its a lovely idea to gift something special to wear for your little one, why not choose one of our stunning ethically made hand smocked dresses or an organic cotton zipsuit. See our dresses here or our zipsuits here.
