With festive events now launching across the country, pantomimes preparing to open and Christmas adverts starting to roll out, the lead up to the Holidays is well and truly underway. In the lead up to Christmas, we will be publishing a series of different themed Gift Guides to help you with your Christmas present shopping and provide some last minute inspiration.
For this guide, we have teamed up with parenting and nursery brand Mamas & Papas to highlight a selection of magical festive gifts from their new Christmas 2023 collection.
Christmas Eve Gift Box
This year, Mamas & Papas have launched their fully bespoke new Christmas Eve boxes, which can be personalised for whoever you are buying for. Simply pop into a Mamas & Papas store, choose your box, and then pick and mix your Christmas Eve Box products, filling it with anything from PJ’s to soft toys, to make it perfect for whoever you’re buying for.
Children and parents LOVE a Christmas Eve Box. Kids love that they’re an excuse to open a present before the big day itself. And parents see them as the perfect festive family tradition, one they’ll look forward to every year.
Traditionally, you fill Christmas Eve boxes with all the goodies you can enjoy the night before Christmas: think cosy pyjamas, a festive book to read as a family, chocolates and hot chocolate for older children, and a soft toy for younger ones to cuddle up to as they struggle to contain their excitement.
Available in red, pink and natural colours, these beautiful glass Christmas baubles, featuring intricate hand-painted illustrations make for very special mementos to mark baby’s first Christmas and will help bring treasured memories for years to come.
Each and every glass bauble is carefully hand painted, so no two are the same, and is finished with a delicate hanging ribbon. The baubles also come with a lovely keepsake box for safe storage and protection. Treasure it as a memory of a magical first Christmas and bring it out to display year after year.
What better way to celebrate a baby’s magical first Christmas than with their very own Christmas stocking, a gorgeous gift to mark this extra special occasion.
The stocking is crafted from beautifully soft, snow-white fabric with luxe grey faux fur trim and soft grey velvet ribbon hanging, perfect for little ones.
Embellished with hand stitched grey stars and adorable felt appliqué reindeer, the stocking is embossed in silver stitching with ‘my first Christmas 2023’, the Baby’s First Christmas Stocking makes for the ideal first Christmas gift and memento.
Another very special highlight from the Christmas 2023 collection, the Christmas tree hanging star-shaped photo frame is a unique way to celebrate baby’s first Christmas and an easy and lovely way to personalise your tree.
