With Christmas just around the corner, The Tot Founder and mama of three, Nasiba Adilova, shares her gift picks for baby’s first Christmas.

There’s nothing quite like getting to experience Christmas with a new baby. It doesn’t matter if they’re 12 weeks old or 12 months old, getting to watch Christmas lights twinkle in their curious and awe-struck eyes is one of my favorite things in the world. As the mother of two boys and now a little eight month old girl, this momentous first occasion is something my growing family cherishes deeply, which is why I take pride in making each of my children’s first Christmas’ extra special.

Whether we’re at home or visiting family across the globe, I love starting or continuing traditions like reading Tiny Bee Gift Co.’s A Christmas Carol by the Christmas tree before we open presents. It’s important to me that my children understand the value of family and the meaning and purpose behind the holidays from Day 1. Life can get insanely busy or even down right turbulent, which is why embracing holidays that bring friends and family together to express love and gratitude is crucial. In a way, Christmas marks the end of a year and can be a beautiful time to teach little ones about reflection as well as how special memory making can be.

When it comes to shopping for a baby, it can get a bit tricky, especially for those who don’t have kids yet and are unsure of what’s age appropriate. Even though babies tend to be equally fascinated by the wrapping paper as the present itself, thoughtfully picked presents really do often end up becoming heirloom pieces that can be passed down from generation to generation. By shopping wisely now – you will have the opportunity to give items that will be played with for years, not months. The other pro of choosing age appropriate gifts is that they can serve as a great distraction on the day if you’re still busy trying to get Christmas dinner on the table or have a meaningful conversation with family and friends.

One special gift idea I really love is gifting a new baby a Marie Chantal Holiday Angel Wing Footie that they can then give to their baby on their first Christmas. Being able to pass down an outfit, sweater or rattle is sentimental and a great way to honor or remember the previous owner. It’s little things like this that add extra meaning to an already special holiday season.

Whether you’re looking for stocking stuffers from Santa, or gifts that could help you out as a parent, I’ve put together a list below with a variety of first Christmas gifts for baby boy or girl.
