Gifts for baby’s first Christmas are such a big deal for so many families. And we don’t blame you. We tend to favor those small keepsakes and ornaments that will be around for a while, but we’ve got a few splurgey baby Christmas gift ideas in here for you too. We get it — sometimes new parents just can’t help ourselves!

Handpainted on rounds of wood, what a lovely commemorative ornament for baby’s first Christmas.
$16, Field and Forest Design
One of our favorite stocking makers on Etsy (Liz owns a whole set from her!) has tons of fun modern styles, but we’re loving these classic designs in such pretty colors that are new to her shop this year. Great gift for a second — or third — baby, especially if you’re getting one stocking for each child.
$18.99+, Good Wishes Quilts
This exquisitely handmade baby book from a small mom-run company retools a 1904 classic using archival quality paper and Smythe Sewn hardbinding, making it one of our all-time favorite baby gifts. It’s just been rereleased and updated this year, and it comes beautifully packaged. Perfect gift for when you’re shopping for a combo new baby-holiday gift. (Oops, been there.)
