Getting Ready For Baby’s First Christmas!

Hello, lovely readers!

How are you all getting on with festive preparations? If your little one is going to be enjoying their first Christmas this year, you’ll know that it’s super special – I absolutely loved getting my son dressed up for family parties, photos for our Christmas cards, and watching him enjoying playing with his first toys (he was 4 months old and just starting to show an interest).

I’ve been having a good browse of the amazing Christmas range over at Mamas & Papas, and couldn’t NOT share what I found with you guys – I hope that this guide helps you to add an extra dash of magic to your baby’s first festive season.

Love from Katie. Xx


Occasion Clothing

If you have plans to meet up with family & friends, attend parties and events, and perhaps go out for a nice meal, you’ll need a smart outfit for your tot.

First Toys

Christmas is the perfect opportunity to stock up on baby’s first play things – tummy time cushions with multi-sensory attachments and soft sit-up toys are ideal for smaller babies who are still developing and learning how to play. This plush Santa toy would make a perfect stocking filler, and don’t even get me started on this BEAUTIFUL floral rocking horse… it also comes in light brown for gender neutral preferences.

Personalised Gifts

If you’re like me and you have lots of little relatives to buy for, you can’t go far wrong with personalised gifts – they add a more personal, thoughtful touch, I think! These all have a small, reasonable additional charge to be personalised but would also make stunning gifts without.
