Gifts for baby’s first Christmas: top 15 products we love! | Perth photograpy

Christmas is less than 4 weeks away.  Everywhere we look things are definitely starting to look festive.  This is such an exciting time of the year for families celebrating their baby’s first Christmas!  Many of our little clients belong to this group, thus we have searched for the best gifts ideas from our favorite businesses, in Perth and online.  As a result, here is a list of top 15 gifts ideas which will capture your little one’s imagination, satisfy their development milestones and offer hours of joy:

In the wise words of my go-to baby development expert (and best friend) Edna Giuntini of Giuntini Chiropractic:

Children start becoming explorers of their world around 6 months of age.  They are crawling, then pulling themselves up on things and walking within a very short period of time.  They have an infinite curiosity for the world around them.  The toys you choose can make this stage adventurous and enlightening.  I recommend toys that are closer to what our grandparents had. Those will allow your child to lead the play with their imagination. Most of all (and the greatest benefit): us parents can get physically and emotionally present when using these toys to play with our children.
