Our very own Babyblooms Grandma, Marilyn Dew shares some unique and special gift ideas for Baby's First Christmas.
Having been a buyer and receiver of many baby gifts in the last 50 years, I think the most special gift is for Baby's first Christmas. Let's be honest, babies under the age of one don't have a Christmas wish list and can easily be overwhelmed or unimpressed, so choosing a suitable present is often more about appealing to the parents than the child. I have loved sourcing unique and special gifts for this year's Babyblooms Christmas Shop and these are my top five favourites:
Personalised First Christmas Baubles
This is a treasured piece which is proudly displayed on the tree year on year. Many customers choose to make this their signature gift and to gift one each year, building a collection that the child (and likely the parents) will treasure into adulthood as a record of Christmases past. Our baubles are made from fine bone china and illustrated with our beautiful Babyblooms Christmas tree.
I still have china that my daughter Lisa was bought for her First Christmas and we used it every year in the month of December. It was one of our family traditions and I still have it to remind me of those special times.
Personalised Teddy Bear
Cuddly traditional bears have always been a firm favourite but giving ours personalised and embroidered knitwear means we have an extra special gift for Baby's First Christmas.
Baby's First Christmas Shoes
I have kept my daughter's first shoes and this is why we wanted to do a special range for Baby's First Christmas. Decorated with our very own teddy bear, Bernard they are available in tan and red making them suitable for boys and girls and after Christmas too.
Baby's Personalised Christmas T-Shirt
There are certain items of clothing that are kept forever as signature pieces and our fabulous new T-Shirt is one of these. Decorated with the Babyblooms Christmas tree and embroidered with a name of your choice, these make special gifts for Christmas.
I hope you like our new seasonal range and we will also beautifully wrap them free of charge for you. Our packaging of gifts now comes in one of these new illustrated boxes depicting our BabyBlooms home, local high street and town of Chipping Sodbury. They not only look beautiful but can be played with or kept forever.
We always like to hear your feedback and any unique gift ideas so we can share them with our community. It won't be long before we have to start sourcing Christmas gifts for 2015!
