Christmas is swiftly coming upon us. Though it occurs the same day every year and we always know it’s coming, it has this special way of making us panic last minute. If you’re one of those parents who have their shopping done months in advance, we salute you. If not – we’re here to help you make some of those decisions and guide you towards what we hope will be a happy and relaxing holiday season….A mum can hope, right? Whether you’re shopping for your own little one or perhaps looking for something special for a friend or family member, we’ve got you covered.

Our Christmas Gift Guide will be published on a weekly basis in 3 installments: Newborn – 1 year, 1-3 Years and 3-5 Years.

You can find the first installment focusing on gifts for Newborn babies to 1 year olds below!

While a newborn may be far too young to ever remember their first Christmas, it doesn’t make celebrating with them any less special. This is a perfect time for keepsake items that they, and you, will cherish over the years.

 

Mamas & Papas – My First Christmas Bauble 2016 £6.40

A first Christmas is a wonderful time and what better way to commemorate this than a special bauble they can hang on the tree for years to come.

 

Baby Art – Magic Box £7.95

This unique gift is great for new parents hoping to keep memories of their precious little one forever. Protect hand or footprints in a pretty box that you can look back on fondly as they grow. The materials used are dermatologically tested and safe to use for babies, though a patch test is always recommended.

 

Grobag Newborn Light Gro-Snug £22.99

Keep them snug as a bug in a rug in a swaddling bag that allows you to tuck their arms in or out. The lightweight fabric adds a warm but not overheating layer and is made from a cozy supersoft cotton to keep them comfy on those chilly winter evenings.

A classy and cosy gift set made from a soft luxury cable knit and Pima Cotton lining, it’s the perfect set for a cool winter excursion.
