1. Personalised Fur Top Penguin Christmas Sack, £19.20

Size: H75 x W46cm

With a new baby joining the family, you’re bound to have lots of new toys and presents being delivered by happy friends and family, and that’s before you add all the ones you’ve got wrapped and ready yourself!

This sweet Christmas sack is the perfect way to keep all your little one’s exciting gifts together and you can reuse it every year as they grow. You can personalise the sack by adding their name in embroidery too, so it feels really their own.

One My 1st Years customer described it as a “lovely item with personalisation and lots of space.” Another agreed and praised the, “excellent quality, delivery and presentation.”

2. Personalised Small Fur Top Reindeer Stocking, £13.20

Size: L51cm

If you want a matching set, you can also get this stocking (the sacks and stockings are available in a range of designs in red or grey) for full coordination this Christmas. A stocking is also a traditional choice and may be more practical if the sack is a little large for what you are looking for.

This stocking is topped with a classic faux fur cuff and can be personalised with the new baby’s name (up to 9 letters) for an extra thoughtful touch.

Previous buyers who left reviews on the My 1st Years website seemed pleased with the product, describing it as a “really lovely quality gift” and a “gorgeous stocking,” which is “beautifully made.”

Get your child involved in literature from the very start by adding them into their own story. The story is all about Christmas and you can add your child’s name and even select the character which looks most like them.

The book is available in either hard or soft cover and you can add a gifting message on the back of it, too.

“I’m so happy with the gift for our first Grand Niece she is going to just love it,” said one buyer, while another said they, “really loved the text and illustrations.”

5. Personalised Baby Penguin Footprint Kit, £28

Kit sizes: extra small, small, medium, large and extra large

With a new baby, you’ll want to remember every moment and mark all their milestones. This creative footprint set allows you to keep a record of their tiny prints (they won’t be that small for long!). Inside you’ll find the penguin print as well as a safe inkpad and instructions explaining exactly what to do.

For a newborn you will need the extra small kit, although you can select different sizes right up to 12 years old to keep a running record as they grow.

The penguin theme is perfect for Christmas and would look adorable hung up at home on display. You can also request to have your baby’s name beneath the picture.

8. Gingerbread Soft Knit Christmas Baby Blanket, £35

Dimensions: 86cm x 100cm

This novelty blanket lines up with your baby’s head when laying down to transform them into a living gingerbread biscuit – a great gift for some fun festive photos! The double fine knit blanket is made from 100% cotton, so it should be soft, cosy and breathable.

9. Personalised First Christmas Reindeer Babygrow, £14.95

Sizes: 0 to 3, 3 to 6 and 6 to 12 months

Newborns can never have enough baby grows and this festive themed outfit features a reindeer along with your chosen name and a “First Christmas” message.

The long-sleeves on this babygrow are ideal for the colder months and it is also made from 100% cotton, meaning it should be soft and breathable, too.

A couple of reviews mentioned the baby grow could be on the larger size, so if you are deciding between sizes it might be a wise idea to opt for the smaller of the two.

10. Personalised Bib – First Christmas Dinner, £11.99

One of the best things about Christmas is the food. While brand new littles ones won’t be able to tuck into a full roast dinner just yet, they can join in the action with their very own themed bib.

This bib is made from 100% cotton and can be printed with a chosen name (up to 11 letters). It is printed with smiling vegetables and a Christmas pudding, and it reads “First Christmas Dinner”, making it a memorable keepsake to look back on in the future.

The bib can also be chucked right into the washing machine at 40 degrees, so it’s easy to keep clean, too.
