Learning blocks, books

I got my son everything hed need. Clothes, some learning toys, diapers.

mega blocks… maybe flash cards to help with first words/talking… my 1st baby doll… clothes diapers… favorite snacks

Books for you to read to her, building/learning blocks and push toys. She’ll be up and running before you guys know it

a empty box. the bow you put on top of the gift. wrapping paper.
lol the baby won’t care about anything else!

I would get learning toys and stuff she needs

They dont even understand xmas. Let them play with the wrapping paper and save yourself the money :joy:
Honestly, I use Printerpix or Shutterfly and just do a 10pg book of the year… my kids are now 7 and 3 Nd love their picture books more than any other toy I’ve ever bought them

I bought my first a bunch of stuff on her first Christmas like learning toys and new pacifiers, but she didnt really understand what was going on and I unwrapped the gifts myself and tried to act "excited ". With my second, I did not get her anything for her first Christmas because she was too young to understand it. They do not have any interest in Christmas yet. Around the age of 2 is when it gets fun for them

I bought my son stuff he didn’t have but could use for the upcoming months & several toys that he would use. So he got a walker, Elmo & Mickey Mouse toys, a teepee to play in, a wagon. Etc.

The lights and decorations will be what’s most important, and the dreaded first trip to see Santa!

I got one of these as a gift for my 2nd child it was her fav as a baby and both her little sisters fav as well. Any rattle, she’ll be crawling before you know it, little cars for her to push, my baby’s liked the kick n’ play piano around that age as well.

A box.
More specifically, a big box.
I would put my kids under the lights for them to look up, they loved that.

At that age they don’t care. Clothes if they need it and a small toy. Put money in the bank for them instead of spending money on toys they will break or not care about.

Don’t go overboard…puzzles, books, pacifiers, things the baby will use. Christmas means literally nothing to a baby. If people ask… money for a college fund a a share of stock in a solid company.

Our son was only 3 weeks old for his first Christmas so we didn’t do anything.

We did something she needed, something she wanted & something to read. So we got her some warm pjs & diapers, let her pick out a toy in the store & got her a few books.

Last year we baught our youngest 2 months at the time what she needed high chair excersaucer 10 0z bottles and some outfits

This is the only time in your life you can get by with not buying everything you see enjoy it!! My first baby was 8 months her first Christmas and i went way over board im talking presents from the tree to the front door i wish someone had told me this then :woman_facepalming:

For each of our daughter’s first Christmases, one was three weeks in the other was 4 months, we gave each of them glow worms. The oldest is now 5 and still sleeps with hers. It was a cute little toy they could cuddle with and she want when they were younger, and now that each is a little older they use it as a night light.
