Baby's first Christmas Gift Guide Lou and Belle

Celebrating your baby's First Christmas is the most magical time for you and your wider family. Its 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. Please read on if you want to be crowned The Favourite Auntie!

I hope you enjoy reading this curated guide of special Christmas gifts, and I hope you love the selection as much as I do.

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.

Tikiri Rubber bath toys

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.

Heirloom Dolls

Our Nana Huchy 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.

Our new range of quality wooden toys are fun, educational and will keep little hands busy on Christmas day. This simple, four piece block is illustrated with warm bright colours and simple graphics. Challenge your toddler to create 4 different animal pictures using the tray to keep them safe.  A fantastic first toy for your toddler, as it helps to develop hand eye coordination, spatial thinking, and concentration. Made from top-quality reclaimed rubberwood and all paint colours are non toxic and so safe for little ones. See our range of wooden toys here.

Board Books

We all love watching the classic movies during the Christmas holidays, Alice in Wonderland is a favourite in our house. Our range of BabyLit classic primer boardbooks are an introduction into classic literature and include titles such as Emma, Peter Pan and Moby Dick. Each teaches a basic concept such as counting, colours, sounds, emotions or animals. This Alice in Wonderland board book focuses on teaching colours and is full of cheeky illustrations that will capture your littles imagination. Find you favourite title here.

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.
