Personalized Christmas Gifts for Baby’s First Christmas
Personalized Christmas book
I feel like we started creating our baby’s first library as soon as we found out we were pregnant. One of my favorite kinds of books is personalized baby books. I want to feature two popular personalized Christmas books for babies. The first personalized Christmas book is the Night Before Christmas. This story is the traditional Christmas story, but with the child’s name sprinkled in throughout the story. The second story, Very Merry First Christmas, is a fun Christmas story with the child’s name placed throughout the book leading up to Santa bringing their Christmas presents.

The first learning toy I want to share with you is the Battat Wooden Activity Cube. These activity cubes make a great first Christmas gift because it’s a gift they’ll play with for several years. This activity cube is great developmental toy for babies because they can begin playing with it when they can hold their head up. It will then go through the stages and they’ll be able to use it as they learn their animals, colors, shapes, etc.
Standing play center
We absolutely LOVE our LeapFrog Learn and Groove Musical Table. We were given this play table as a gift for our baby’s first Christmas. This table is unique in that the legs can come off and your baby can begin playing with it as soon as they can hold themselves up. Then, as they’re ready to learn to stand, you can add the legs back and they can practice their standing skills while playing.
