Ever wondered what in the world you could possibly buy a baby for Christmas?
”They don’t need a lot” I hear you say. I disagree. Babies do need a lot, a hell of a lot, and Christmas is the perfect opportunity to delegate out gifts for the first year of baby’s life. In the long run, this saves you a bit of money, saves gifts getting duplicated and you have everything you need for the next year. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t want to shell out on gifts for my child, I just don’t see the point in going completely all out. Yes, I took him to see Father Christmas, but no I didn’t spend hundreds on him. He won’t remember it, but it’s still nice to create memories.
Here’s a list of gifts that our little one received, just in case any of you were stuck for ideas.
