If you’ve been following Snapshots & My Thoughts for awhile, you’ll know I’m very excited about celebrating Isla’s first Christmas. I outlined many of our family traditions as part of the weeklong ‘Isla’s First Christmas with Carter’s’ series. All baby ‘firsts’ are so special, and there are a lot of sweet gifts you can give to your little one to mark the occasion!

One of my favorites is this personalized Christmas book from Pottery Barn Kids. As a child, I would have loved a hardback book with my name on it! I also love this ornament from Paloma’s Nest. I had a custom ring dish created by Paloma’s Nest for our wedding (seen here), and love it.

The moose teether is a great stocking stuffer, as are the Santa socks and toy. I’ve added the Radio Flyer walker to Isla’s Christmas list from Santa, as it’s one of the most classic kids toy.

Do you have any other gift suggestions for a baby’s first holiday?
