Gift Ideas for Baby's 1st Christmas

Some products were received for consideration.

I know so many people who are pregnant this year or who have babies already that I thought I would put together a little guide to help anyone who is wondering what to get as a gift for baby's first Christmas. This was such a fun guide to put together since I have so much more experience with baby products than I use to. Plus I still love all the new products that make having a baby way easier than when my kiddos were babies.

My daughter's first Christmas, she was only a few weeks old. Everyone wanted us to travel that year, but it also happened to snow so that was a no-go. My favorite gift she received was a personalized 1st Christmas ornament. My son's 1st Christmas, he was nine months old. My favorite gift that he received was seriously clothes and diapers. Here are some other gifts ideas that personally would have loved to have received for my little ones:
