The 40 best gifts for baby’s first Christmas
So there was the vision I had for my son’s first Christmas, and then there was the reality. In my head, my 1-year-old son would wake up on Christmas morning filled with excitement for this special milestone day. We would make Christmas cookies, we would read a holiday classic while nestled by the fire, and I would watch with motherly delight as my boy opened his very first Christmas gift.
In reality, my son looked confused as to why I was jumping around like a woodland sprite. He rejected the special Christmas pancakes I made him for breakfast, and he mumbled a baby-size “Meh” when it came to presents. I was slightly bummed out at first, but then it hit me: My baby didn’t own a calendar. He had no clue what the day was … because he was 1. (Face palm)
What I learned from my boy’s first Christmas was that while he was too little to appreciate the magic of the holiday, I was old enough to appreciate it and share it for him.
I also learned that a handful of fun and buzzy toys are great, but for the most part, a baby’s holiday gifts should be a nice mix of the practical, the fun and the sweet.
Here is a list of 40 sweet, yet practical, gifts for your baby’s first Christmas!

Modern children are very mobile and active. Who rides a skateboard, who rides a bike, and who roller skates. It is worth assuming that your child is probably passionate about some kind of sport. Perhaps he already said that all classmates ride, for example, on a scooter.
The hoverboard will not only help you learn to balance, but also give your child an unforgettable riding experience. Of course, you will have to practice under the gaze of adults, but believe me, then it will become your son’s or daughter’s favorite toy. In addition, now manufacturers produce a wide variety of options both in color and in functionality.
A gift for sociable children
If your child has many friends who often come to visit, then a present that can be used in a company can be a great option for a holiday gift. This will not only strengthen the friendship of your child, but also strengthen relationships in the family, because collective activity can also be between relatives.
2. Game console
A game console will be able to please your son or daughter, because you can invite friends to play the console. But, of course, if suddenly friends are busy studying, and the child has already managed to do his homework, you can play alone. In addition, the games that are released on consoles are for different ages, so you can also play shooter or strategy at your leisure.
Gift for a hobby
If your child has a hobby, then you should think about a gift that will help him grow in this direction. After all, psychologists say that all creative undertakings should be cultivated in children almost from birth.
3. Burnout set
Carefully study your child’s leisure time if you haven’t noticed bright hobbies up to this point. Perhaps it is your son or daughter who really wants to draw in their hearts. A wood burning kit can be an excellent solution. In addition to being able to decorate the apartment with beautiful works, you will also help fulfill the child’s dream of beauty.
A gift for everyday life will always be relevant for a child. Any accessory will be in the theme, because such things are lost and broken more often than others. You can look at the child’s wardrobe to have a better understanding of his needs.
A backpack will be a universal gift for both boys and girls. Naturally, in terms of colors and design, you need to choose what is closer to your child. Perhaps it makes sense to ask in between times what style your son or daughter likes, to ask for an example. You just need to do it carefully, otherwise the whole surprise will be spoiled.
A gift for those who love to read
There are always a bunch of gifts for book lovers that they can appreciate. If your child is drawn to books, then you, as parents, probably want to encourage this trend and make a present that will continue to support his passion.
Of course, a classic book is the best gift, but it is not always possible to guess which author and genre your child prefers. Therefore, we propose to give a universal present — an e-book, on which you can download both detective stories and science fiction, as well as romantic poems or a collection of your favorite poems.
A gift for fun games
One thing you definitely can’t go wrong with and there will never be too much is toys. Give boldly, taking into account the age of the child, his hobbies and favorite cartoons and heroes.
6. Board game
A board game based on the scenario of a favorite work or a classic type of monopoly or jenga for fun and educational evenings spent together.
7. Soft toy
A soft toy for cuddling or just to add to your collection. Is the baby too big for all this? Then give him a funny soft toy, since there are plenty of them now.
Constructor for the development of fine motor skills and logical thinking. It will help to reveal engineering talent and architectural vision.
9. Play set
Play sets and figures will enrich the child’s play with new characters and scenarios, and give you a few hours of relative silence into mother’s daughters. The choice is large: talking, long-haired, with pets, with changeable outfits, with nipples, with houses and cars — in general, for every taste and color.

How to choose a gift for a child for the New Year
If the child is small and writes letters to Santa Claus, offer him to do it early so that you have time to look for the options that he wants. True, the wishes of the baby do not always correspond to the financial capabilities of the parents. But, as a rule, you can always find an alternative that will satisfy the desire of the child and not ruin mom and dad. With a teenager, you can already discuss the proposed New Year’s gift. Here are some more useful tips on how to choose a gift for a child.
- Consider the age of the child: what suits a one and a half year old baby is unlikely to be to the taste of a three year old. True, psychologists advise choosing toys and games a little «for growth» in order to arouse the child’s interest in developing new skills.
- Go shopping with your son or daughter in advance, study together the toys that he would like to receive. Perhaps the thing that attracted him so much in advertising, in fact, will not be what he expected.
- Do not give everyday things: clothes, shoes, hygiene items. A child is unlikely to appreciate such a gift. True, often such presents are “ordered” by parents to friends or relatives. In this case, it is worth buying a small toy or other inexpensive thing that will be of interest to the child.
- If you don’t know what to give as a present, you can choose a sweet gift. But it is better to assemble it yourself, and not buy a ready-made kit. Choose “healthy” sweets (now there are a lot of really high-quality chocolates, dried fruit desserts and other things), fruits, pay attention to the expiration date.

Even if the child is still quite small, and this is only the first or second New Year in his life, this is not a reason to deprive him of the holiday. There are things that you and your little one can easily and effortlessly do, and the result of your creativity will not be ashamed to give to grandparents and numerous gifts from the baby.
The main «weapon» of the baby is his palm. All parents, without exception, want to keep in memory how little she was. Well, let’s keep it, and not only in our memory, but also in the memory of others.
What are we going to do?
Christmas toys with palm
You will need salt dough, acrylic paints. Cooking the dough, the child actively helps. We roll out and cut out large circles, such that the baby’s palm fits. Happened? Now the most crucial moment, the main character of which will be your child. We ask him to attach his palm to each “toy” and press harder, just do not overdo it. If the baby is still very small, help him. When you have a whole batch of «palms» ready, send them to the oven to dry.
Just before that, be sure to make a hole in the blank, through which you will then pass the ribbon. Remember to leave the oven door ajar and make sure the toys don’t crack. When the “palms” are dry, feel free to take acrylic paints and color the prints. Can be top coated with acrylic lacquer. Such a toy as a keepsake can be proudly hung on a Christmas tree.
Make it a good tradition every year to make toys with your child’s hands. And when he grows up, you can visually show him how he grew up.
Postcards with prints
This is the easiest way to please loved ones with crafts from a baby for the New Year. We take beautiful colored paper, you can use velvet, for example. The child’s task is to make a handprint on a postcard. Mom’s task is to beat this palm. You can turn it into a Santa Claus beard, just draw a red cap or make it out of felt and glue it, and draw a face for a rosy-cheeked grandfather. And you can make hares, only then you will need the imprint of not the entire pen, but only the palm and two fingers: the index and ring fingers.
Let the baby help you decorate the card with ribbons or lace, sticking them with glue, sprinkle with semolina snow and sparkles, after smearing them with glue stick. And if the child is already quite large and even knows the letters and is trying to write them, then he may well try to rewrite the short message that you prepare for him.
Herringbone of palms
This New Year’s gift will touch any grandmother. True, to bring the idea to life, you will need a child, and mom, and dad. We circle the palms of the whole family, cut them out and multiply. It is best to initially use green colored paper or cardboard, but you can also use white, and then color them. The resulting blanks are Christmas tree branches. We take a large sheet of thick paper and lay out a green beauty. You can provide each palm-twig with a small photograph from the life of your friendly family and signature wishes.
What other New Year’s gifts can you prepare with your baby?
- hold a New Year’s photo shoot for the whole family, and arrange the resulting photos in frames that you can decorate with your child using decoupage technique
- make a calendar starring a child
- Ask your child to draw a portrait of a grandfather or friend, and print it on a t-shirt or mug as a gift for the person the child has drawn.
