Navy and Festive Leaves Bunny Jacket
Unisex Navy and Festive Leaves Bunny JacketThis lovely navy jacket with festive leaves print is precious, and we just love the bunny ears! This jacket is perfect to wear all year round.

So, it's perfect for keeping your little ones cute and cosy all year round.   

What makes this jacket even more versatile is the double layers, and being fully lined means that this jacket is two jackets in one (although there are only bunny ears on the woollen side). So, whilst this will be adorable for Baby's first Christmas, it will last for a while after the festive season!

Ensuring a safe first Christmas for everyone

Christmas is a lovely time to dress up, have lots of fun and make some unforgettable memories, but we want to help you safely do that too. 

Here are some top tips for ensuring you have a fun but safe time dressing up baby for their first Christmas:  

Wear a layer underneath any costumes

If you opt for a baby Christmas costume instead of an outfit, it's worth being aware that fancy dress costumes don't have to adhere to the same regulations as regular clothes. This means they can be more flammable than regular clothes, so be extra vigilant for any open flames like candles.  

Protect baby's sensitive skin 

When looking for baby Christmas costumes and fancy outfits, you'll find lots of materials that your little one might not usually wear, such as tulle or mesh, and you might find these can be a bit uncomfortable or rough on a baby's sensitive skin. You can get around this by layering up with a vest, tights, or a romper to protect the baby's skin.  

Watch out for accessories

If Baby's costume comes with accessories like wigs, beards, masks, or headbands, make sure they don't cover their eyes, nose, or mouth.

Make Baby's first Christmas unforgettable

Whether you opt to buy a baby's first Christmas outfit from a high street retailer like John Lewis or an indie seller on Etsy, we just know that your little one is going to look super sweet this festive season. With so many options out there, we know it can be tough to decide, but hopefully, our round-up of the best places to buy your baby's first Christmas outfit has given you plenty of inspiration! 

Celebrating Baby's First Christmas

Whether you choose to go down the fancy-dress route and choose a baby Christmas costume or choose an adorable first Christmas outfit, there are so many options out there to make sure that baby's first Christmas is special. 

We know that as new parents, there can be a lot going on and a lot to juggle along with Christmas, but there is something about a first Christmas that brings the magic and sparkle to the festive season. It really is the most wonderful time of year! Your little one is still too young to understand the concept of Christmas and all its magic for now, but you can still get them in the festive spirit and experience the joy of Christmas with a precious baby Christmas outfit. 

Take lots of photos

Don't forget to take lots of family photos this festive season; that way, you'll always have treasured pictures of your baby's first Christmas. Plus, if you're keeping a scrapbook of their 'firsts' or even planning to create an album for when they're older, you'll have lots of pictures to look back on and choose from with them in their gorgeous first Christmas outfit!

Baby's First Christmas Gifts

With Christmas well on its way, it's time to get into your Christmas list. With a little one on your list, you might be searching for an extra-special gift to celebrate their first Christmas, and it's surprising how someone so tiny can be so hard to buy for! With so many cute items out there, how do you narrow it down? Any of the above outfits from our round-up of adorable baby Christmas outfits that would make fantastic gifts for Baby's first Christmas and will kickstart the magic for them for years to come!
