So it’s coming up to that time of year where the shops are full of Christmassy gifts and decorations and we are all beginning to think about what to buy. When there is a new baby in the family at Christmas time it always seems that be more exciting, even though they are too young to fully appreciate the magic. When it’s a baby’s 1st Christmas, I always like to buy them something special, something handmade and a bit different so that it will be cherished.
But where to begin? And what if you don’t want to spend a lot of money? Etsy is a brilliant place to start- full of handmade goodies from all around the world, you are sure to find something for all budgets. Below are just some little gems that you may love.
Personalised 1st Christmas wooden bauble
This beautiful wooden star is very affordable at just £5. It can be personalised so you can have the baby’s name added, and the date too if you wish. It’s perfect to hang from the tree or to have on display every year. It’s very simple in design, no bright colours or copious amounts of glitter so ideal for those who like a rustic-styled Christmas.
Baby’s 1st Christmas print.
This print is the perfect gift to unwrap on Christmas morning and cherish. It is 8″ x 10″ and comes with a mount. Upon ordering, you can select the skin tone for the child as well as the details of the name and year you would like- we think this is a beautiful print. It’s £25 so one of our higher recommendations but simply stunning.
