My kid is getting boxes. He loves boxes. He won’t know the difference. We are asking family if they want to give him anything to put it in his college fund.
My daughter was only 2 months for her first christmas so we got her some new clothes, a rattle toy, and then bought a bunch of kids toys and donated them. Other kids could use them at the time when my daughter can't. Now as she gets older we continue the tradition and she gets to pick out the toys
We are also doing the special ornament each year that you give to them when they get married for their very first tree together
Books, clothes, baby toys, educational dvd's, a piggy bank and start filling it!!!
I like to do things that will grow with them. Like I have the vtech go go animals and police station for my 5 yr old that we bought when he was 5 months old. He still loves it
This is my little guy's first Christmas, too, but my nephews will be 2 and 5 this year, and every year when I ask my brother for Xmas ideas he says "clothes and books"... Not that I didn't understand before, but now that I'm a mom I really get it.
Every year, I get my nephews each two books: one for now and one for later; the "later" one being a nice hardcover edition of a classic, which I write an inscription in. Then I get them some clothes, and some very little toy or activity type thing that will be fun to open. I'm probably going to go the same route with my little guy while he's still too young to have a wish list for Santa - spend more of my budget on clothes and books, and just get him a little something new to play with.
Wrapping paper !!!! Kids just want to rip things open and be around the people that make them feel normal they just want their routine...they can get easily overwhelmed on holidays with family all at once
My 6 mo son likes empty wipe bags and water bottles I was thinking of getting him a box to sit in and fill it with that. He’d be in heaven 😂
I took a bunch of my sons toys and put them away so he would forget about them. Wrapping those up and some of our old Tupperware that he loves to play with. Leaving it to the grandparents to get him toys and clothes.
Silly us to even think 🤔 what we want to get babies right ! My guy is close to 4 months and will be 6 months around Xmas ... I’ve had the same questions
We’re getting our son who will be just over 6 months old a new car seat (Graco E2F) and we’re getting him lots of educational toys for Christmas
We always do four presents. Something they want. Something they need. Something to wear. Something to read. At that age we got my daughter a stuffed animal, a few board books, a new car seat and some clothes.
Is she walking yet? We ended up getting my little a walker for her first Christmas and a jumper
My daughter was 6 mths on her first Xmas was a little easier cus we could get her toys, and babies first Xmas stuff, my son is due December 6th so probably just baby first Xmas stuff since we already have a lot of clothes and the baby furniture
Lots of books to read together!!
My daughter was 6 months last Christmas. We mostly have her stuff we would have bought within the next few months regardless (sippy
Cup, books, sleepers, etc) and a few toys. We got a wooden activity cube for her bigger gift she liked then and still plays with almost a year later. I’m sure there was more but I don’t remember it all. Someone got her a fisher price little people dollhouse and she liked the sounds it made and chewing the people. It became more of a hit a few months later. She still loves it. If she doesn’t have stacking cups or rings those are age appropriate. Anything with buttons that lights up and makes sounds is also good.
Mine was about 2 weeks old for his first Christmas haha. We wanted to do Santa photos to commemorate his first holiday but I didn’t want to expose him at such a tender age to all those germs (think about it... sick kids coming to the mall, all crowded in one place, sitting in Santa’s lap, spreading germs everywhere because kids haven’t learned how to cover sneezes/coughs). If he had been 6 months old like yours, with a stronger immune system, I would have. You can always make an appointment for those Santa sets too, so you don’t have to wait around.
Other than that, I concur about just spending quality time. Commemorate her first holiday by making an footprint ornament, dancing to some holiday music. Maybe buy a few age-appropriate toys for the sake of gift-giving tradition.

Both my babies were tiny on their first Christmas. (3 months and 1 month) so I bought them an outfit they could wear Christmas Day and their Christmas jammies. And they got everything else from family!
Anything you decide to do will be a fun memory for you and your family! 💕
Our boy will be 5 months and we decided not to buy many things as he’s still too little:) we definitely gonna buy baby walker as he needs it. It’s better to have something symbolic, so you could put it in baby’s memory box and make some cute pictures x
Not to sure why it posted incognito! thanks girls for the ideas! really appreciate it! xxx
Honestly, the best present in my opinion especially for kids is experience; quality time; memories. Go to a Christmas tree farm & cut down your Christmas tree, make it a family day! Make an ornament with your baby, Pinterest has TONS of cute ideas! Do a mini Christmas photoshoot, there’s SO many creative ways to do it! Read Christmas books with them! If you really wanna do actual presents you can do an Advent calendar or 12 days of Christmas.
My babygirl will be 6mo Christmastime too!
aww that's nice! when was she born? xx
