A baby's first Christmas is a joyous and memorable occasion. When a baby is less than a year old, of course, gifts are more directed to the parents than the baby. But as the child grows, he will appreciate remembrances of his first holiday season.

Baby's first christmas
Consider a "Baby's first christmas" keepsake. You can choose an item of clothing proclaiming the significant occasion. Choose a bib, diaper cover, onesie or other item, and personalise it further by adding the baby's name and the year. Or give the baby a festive outfit to wear for the holidays. You also can choose a personalised Christmas ornament or stocking, which will become a treasured memento for years to come.
Especially if the baby is very young, the parents might still need some basic items. For example, perhaps they could use some additional sleepers or onesies. Perhaps they registered for something that they have not yet received. Or they might need something for the nursery. For example, if they did not know the gender of the baby until birth, they might appreciate something in a boy or girl theme.
A newborn baby isn't very active, so give a play gift that will grow with the child. There are many toy systems that can transform as the baby gets older, such as a baby gym or activity mat that starts on the floor and can be turned into a walking play station. There are toys that attach to the crib, stroller or car seat to keep the baby entertained. Baby swings and bouncers keep the baby occupied and allow the parents a few minutes of down time. Or consider simple toys like stuffed animals, rattles and plush building blocks.
A scrapbook or baby book is a great gift that the parents can use to document milestones in their baby's life. A frame with the baby's hospital photo is a beautiful keepsake. Many baby frames come with space for the baby's hand prints and a lock of hair. There are also photo frames that document the baby's growth by including a photo spot for every month of the baby's first year.
