Us girls like a bit of luxury, fuss and generally being spoilt, don’t we? For those who agree with everything I just said, I would like to point you in the direction of this stunning silk Christmas stocking for a bit of grown up elegance with the same fun-loving Christmas vibe.
Like the silk knickers I mentioned in a previous blog post, these stockings are made with the same beautiful fabric. I love purple and therefore I definitely love the one pictured on our website but there’s a great variety of colours for you to choose from to suit your décor or maybe just to suit your personality! They’re a good size so you can be sure there will be plenty of space for Santa to leave you some nice surprises!
Order yours now so you can be ready to show it off and most importantly, ready for Santa to come!
So just what do you buy for a baby’s first Christmas? You can choose something purely Christmas related or maybe something useful for the rest of the year to come.
Thinking of ideas for Christmas gifts for babies can be tough. If they are born earlier on in the year maybe not so hard but what about if they are only newborns right before Christmas? Often parents and family say whatever the age they won’t give too many gifts to baby but c’mon be serious! It is after all baby’s first ever Christmas and they’ve got to be spoilt .. right?
Maybe baby won’t need clothes. Not unless you want to buy them something seriously cute for their Christmas family photo opportunity. You can dress them up as baby Santas and Rudolphs till your hearts content.If you aren’t into the dressing baby up thing then maybe just a Christmas bib is enough.
You can set a family heirloom tradition by getting baby their very own first Christmas bauble to decorate the tree. This trend can start even before baby is born but I like the idea of a personalised bauble with baby’s name on. There are more and more to choose from – china, glass, wooden .. you name it there will be a first Christmas bauble or decoration to suit all tastes and budgets. Often families buy a new Christmas decoration or bauble every year from birth – something to really build on family mementos and heirloom keepsakes for the next generation.
Another baby gift that won’t go amiss is their very own Christmas stocking or present sack. These, too are really special if personalised with baby’s name and birth year . They will be brought out year after year and something kids of all ages really look forward to is hanging up their own Christmas stocking ready for santa’s visit. My own children’s stockings were bought for their first Christmas and they get so excited even after quite a few Christmasses when it’s time to bring them out. A little family ritual which I am expecting will last long into adulthood, somehow!
So what about if this list has already been exhausted by close family members – what else can you give to the new baby to celebrate their First Christmas? A nativity scene keepsake is always a popular choice. Again there are lots to choose from but I particularly like the soft play versions. Giving this type means that as baby grows into toddler and pre school age they can play with the nativity figures and really get involved with the true meaning of Christmas and its story.
There are lots more ideas in helping you choose baby’s First Christmas gifts that don’t necessarily have to have a Christmas theme but will be appreciated. You can choose things such as a Disney ornament to start off what will no doubt be a life long obsession with all things Disney! Or a keepsake box, a personalised picture or even a photo frame to hold baby’s First Christmas photo.

It would seem that the general concensus is yes to this question! After many years of people complaining about high street stores selling Christmas cards in August it would seem that they don’t mind buying Christmas gifts early off the internet.
If our own sales are anything to go by .. we have been selling personalised Christmas baubles and Christmas stockings since August! Personally, I think it may be more to do with the fact that due to money being tight in 2009 maybe people are spreading the enormous cost of their Christmas shopping.
I would always suggest that if you know what you want then buy it early especially if it is personalised Christmas gifts you are looking for. A recent article in a trade magazine stated that suppliers are buying less in so in turn will have less to offer retailers so it might be wise as a consumer to buy something now if you like it and can afford it.
