Baby's First Christmas Gift Guide from In Our Pond  #toys  #holidays

We're past the baby stage for now, but I'm still near enough to it to remember what we liked.  For day 19 of the All Wrapped Up blog series, I present to you my top 10 picks for Baby's First Christmas.

The first Christmas is a great opportunity for an adorable themed outfit that you probably won't be able to get away with when the baby is older.  This red and green dress comes with matching leggings, headband, and shoes.  And the tutu is just adorbs!

Toothbrushes make great stocking stuffers and this banana gum brush is just right for your newest family member.  The peels make handles so the baby can practice sticking it in his/her mouth.  It comes in a few other colors, but I think the banana is the cutest.

Older babies should find a lot of enjoyment with this robotic monster.  The blue plate spins and spits out balls for children to chase.  The monster has a sitter mode and a crawler mode to help the toy grow with your child.  Fill it, spill it, and chase it all day long.

Sophie has become a childhood classic in recent years.  Her narrow neck and wide head means that she's perfectly suited for a toy leash.  She's safe for gnawing and chewing and has lots of places for kids to grip onto.  If you're one of the rare families that doesn't own a giraffe yet, or if you've decided that you need more than one, Sophie would be a great stocking stuffer.

This cluster of colorful balls are all connected with a strong elastic cord.  Your baby will enjoy grabbing them, pulling them apart, and hearing them clank together.  Each ball is quite large, so they're not a choking hazard if the cord does break.  I think they look like a handful of gumballs.

Pull-behind toys are another classic.  This dog is made from smooth wood and comes with a short, strangle-proof cord.  He'd a great addition to your natural toy collection and contrast nicely with the lights and sounds items that every parent can't seem to escape.

We owned this toy and the kids enjoyed playing with it.  Older babies and toddlers can push down on the inchworm's back to squish it flat.  As the worm scrunches back together, it is propelled forward.  It's great for the cause and effect stage and encourages forward motion as they chase it around the house.

Baby Stella is recommended for ages 1 and up so it might be a bit young to qualify in the strictly "first Christmas" category.  I love this doll for her washable cloth body, removable clothes, and many accessories.  It's a doll that can grow with kids for several years and be added to easily.

I really wanted to have something outrageously Christmas themed on my list.  This Rudolph teether/toy fits the bill.  The description on the product says it "teaches holiday joy."  Know someone having a Christmas baby?  This reindeer toy would be a perfect shower gift.

When my kids were babies, we had a Santa costume that we bought at Goodwill, which they each wore.  Start your kid's love of Elf culture early with this cute PJ set.


I never know how I should end these gift guides.  I promised a list, I gave you a list, and now what?  If there are other people on your list besides the baby be sure to check out my other lists on the All Wrapped Up launch page!
