What do you get a baby for Christmas? Sure, they won’t remember either way, but one’s first Christmas should be celebrated with at least one painfully slow unwrapping session (or a speedy one if siblings are helping!) Here are a few ideas:
1. Duck Boot Crib Shoes because anything miniature because they are a winter essential, no matter your size. On sale for $12.
2. A hand-fired ceramic baby’s first Christmas ornament (comes gift-wrapped!) to commemorate this happy-tears time. $34.
3. The cutest, sweetest, truly most adorable book of all time. But nothing compared to your baby. $8.
4. Sold out! Here is another Xylophone set for them and the sweet surprised face they make when they realize all the noise they can make for you. $22
5. Kleenex (pack of 4) and free reign to pull them alllllll out. $7
6. Any (and all!) of the Jellycat cloth fabric books, because something about all those different kinds of tails entertains babies to no end. $16
7. Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit, because this Christmas we’re allllll asking for more sleep. $39
8. Baby’s very first car keys, with push button and lights and three different sounds, so they can go nuts without continually setting off your own car’s alarm. $14
9. No longer available. Here is the cutest similar cozy fleece jumpsuit because you can’t quite bear to take them out of jammies all day, but there’s something about a mock turtleneck and leather covered zipper that’s just a little more presentable. $29.
10. An award winning double feature mirror for babies. So they can look at their cute faces and squeal just like we do all day long. $25.
11. This Sherpa Bear Plush Rocker (or any of these other cute furry animals!), that’s heirloom quality and they’d likely never get off of it. $149.
12. A Wubbanub pacifier, because OF COURSE they’ll take a binky all night long when there’s a soft toy attached to it. $14
13. No longer available. Check out this darling knit hat and mittens set that every body at the grocery store will fawn over. $12

We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
