Actually, Michelle made a good point that she won't remember. She will barely understand, let alone remember. Christmas this year is about YOUR memories not hers.

I agree with practical gifts. New clothes that she will wear in the next 6 months. A new hat. Maybe some toys that will enhance her motor skills - blocks? A ball?. Some board books with images? You really don't have to spend a lot at this age. It is about the little things.

That was a very good point to make I agree! Christmas in my family has always been a big occasion and my memories are dear to me. To say I have forgotten the meaning of christmas was a bit dramatic lol! I'm a first time mum wondering what to put in my child's stocking it was never anything about the price or quantity of presents! I'm excited to have my baby girl at christmas!

Thank You Jodi there are some brilliant ideas thank you very much :)

That's really good for you well done!! The majority of people worry about christmas I haven't lost the meaning of anything, christmas is a magical time and my childhood is full of christmas memories which I intend to give my daughter! Thank you for your ideas that's really helpful :)

What about her favourite snacks? It's her 1st one, she won't remember what is in there. Even a new top or something will do, she's not going to know what "should' be in there.
Christmas shouldn't be hard either. It seems you may have forgotten the meaning of Christmas. Yes it's a time of giving but it's also a time to enjoy being with family and appreciating what we have.
I do my Christmas shopping for the whole family in 1 day. It's not stressful or expensive at all. I get my family practical and inexpensive things.
