When Jared-David was baby I seemed to find shopping for his first Christmas easy. Maybe this is because we went over the top with stuff! Stuff he didn't really need but companies make you think you do, I'm sure many of you will understand where I'm coming from. So now it is Eryn-Rose's first Christmas I was struggling on what to buy and I know I'm not the only parent to be stuck on what to buy a baby for Christmas.
Over the past couple of days I have started picking a few bits up. We have bought her a 3 toys and an activity play centre that she can sit in, we didn't want to buy too many and become over run with toys that she can't use yet. Below I have put together a few idea's of what you can buy for baby.
Spin Top - Whilst walking around the German Market at the weekend I spotted the beautiful princess spin top it was a bargain at £9. It's made from metal so will last and will also make a good collectable item.
Taggie - My son spotted the taggie and suggested to get one for his baby sister. He chose this design which is nice and girlie it was hand made by a local woman but I have seen these around in shops and online.
Blankets - All I seem to do is wash blankets that have either sick or poo on and the other day we had one blanket while all the others were drying. I have ordered Eryn-Rose a blanket with her name on just to make it that little bit more special.
Baby Food - Ok sounds crazy but my mum came up with a genius idea (very rare for my mum). She is buying Eryn-Rose a selection of baby food, jars, rusks and baby rice and making her a little hamper. I have never seen any baby food hampers but what a great idea.
I hope that this helps you a little if you are struggling and if you have an idea's then I would love to hear them.
