Christmas gift ideas for baby girls

Earlier today I shared some adorable Christmas gift ideas for baby boys.  Now it’s the turn of the baby girls. I had such fun putting this list together because everything is so, so cute!  While I’ve called this a baby girl gift list, there are lots of things here that would work just as well for a baby boy too.

I’ve picked a selection of toys, clothes and useful things all with gorgeous design and lots of cuteness for babies aged 0-2 years.  So here are my favourite Christmas gift ideas for baby girls:

1.baby bear shaker toy | 2. dusky pink cotton twinset | 3. melamine bunny plate | 4. ricepuffy soft toy with knitted hat | 5. pingo the penguin soft toy | 6. cosy cocoon sleeping bag | 7. wooden heart wall music box | 8. reversible bunny bib | 9. knitted cloud sweater | 10. wooden baby rattle | 11. origami boat bath toys | 12. apple pillow | 13.pull along wooden train

Christmas gift ideas baby boys

I can’t believe I’m talking Christmas already – where has this year gone?! But Christmas is coming and that means it’s time for me to share some gift ideas with you.  Every year I ask you guys if you want gift lists and every year I get a big, huge yes!  So once again I will be sharing lots and lots of gift ideas for kids of different ages and some ideas for mums too.

To kick of this years gift list, I’ve got a whole range of Christmas gift ideas for baby boys.  Babies don’t need much but it’s always fun to spoil them especially at this time of the year.  So I’ve gathered a range of fun toys, a few clothes and books most of which are suitable for babies from 0-2 years.  I will be sharing a separate gift list for baby girls but as you’ll see there are many gifts on both lists that will be loved by baby boy or girl.

"happy Christmas from ebabee"

Dear readers,

Wishing you and your families a happy and joyful Christmas full of love and laughter.  I hope you are all surrounded by your loved ones and have a warm and happy festive break.

Thank you all for your wonderful support this year.  Not just with the blog but with my new shop too.  Personally for me, this year has had some ups and downs but it has also been a big year in many ways – new shop and new home.  I hope to grow my shop in 2015 and of course continue with this blog with new ideas, collaborations and inspiration.

Once again thank you for coming here everyday and for all your likes, comments and love on facebook too.  I will be taking a break to spend some time with my family and will see you back here on January 5th.  But there will be some exciting shop news in between so keep a look out for that. 

Happy, happy 2015 to you all!

"mini tree DIY Christmas garland"

Do you remember my DIY mini forest advent calendar?  Well, I had all those mini origami trees floating around so I had to do something with them.  With our recent house move, I knew there would be no tree this year but I did have 24 of these mini trees which I wasn’t ready to get rid of just yet.  So I decided to simply make a little mini tree garland.

"DIY christmas tree decoration"

If you’re starting from scratch you’ll have to make the origami tree’s first of course.  But after that it’s really simple.  All you need is a needle and thread and just string the trees together at the top.  Super easy, peasy!  I had the green trees from my advent calendar but you could easily make the garland in any colour you like – perhaps a black and white one or even a gold one.  Alternatively these little trees could also become tree ornaments – again just thread from the top and hang from your big tree.

What else would you use these little trees for?  Name place holders?  Table decorations? Anything else?

"four easy Christmas crafts for kids"

Christmas is the perfect time for crafting.  It’s cold outside, the holidays are on and so it’s a great way to keep the kids entertained.  My preference is always for quick and easy crafts.  Anything too involved and I find that the kids patience wears thin and the crafts don’t get finished.  So with that in mind I’ve picked four fun and colourful crafts most of which come with free printables too.

1.  How cute are those printable Christmas crackers?  The printable templates also come as blank ones so they’re great to give to the kids and let them decorate as they wish.

2. I’m loving these playful DIY birch Christmas tree ornaments.  For these you will need to buy the birch rounds or improvise with something else like thick cardboard.  And then decorate as you wish – with stickers or drawings or both.

3. These printable tree and gingerbread pouches come undecorated so you can print on to colourful paper or plain paper and decorate.  These shapes can be used for so many things – storing little treats, making hanging ornaments, gift tags and so much more.

4.  A cute little printable geometric snowman that even comes with a hat.  This little snowman can be used on it’s own as a decoration or if you print quite a few, it would make a super cute table decoration on Christmas day.  You could even use it for place names – just write each persons name on the hat.

Have a great weekend all!  Enjoy the happy, cheerful, festive atmosphere which is the thing I love the most about Christmas.

P.S. Today is the last day for UK Christmas orders from our kids clothing shop.

"free printable Christmas gift tags"

Every year I share some of the best free printable Christmas gift tags from around the web.  This year I had every intention of designing my own but I didn’t plan on moving house, celebrating Anya’s birthday, launching a new venture and having Christmas all so close together!  I guess my own designs will have to wait until next year but there are some amazing free gift tags to be had out there so I’ve picked my favorites.  If you’re one of the last minute types like me (still to buy Christmas gifts!) then these labels will come in handy next week as you can just print at the very last minute and they’re way cooler and so much more unique then standard shop bought ones.

"best books for 4-6 year old kids"

We are complete bookworms in this house.  I would go so far as saying almost more then adult books, I adore kids books and get excited every time we get a new one.  Christmas is the perfect excuse for me to go a bit over the top buying new books for Anya.  Last week I shared some great activity books for kids so today I wanted to share some story books.  Most of these books are suitable for around ages 4-7 years but of course can be read out loud to younger kids too.  Some of them are old classics like Puss in Boots and Aesops Fables but I’ve picked new and exciting editions which bring something different.  We already own some of these books and love them and the rest are on our wish list:

1. Once Upon an Alphabet | 2. Aesop’s Fables | 3. Ramayana: The Divine Loophole | 4. Sparky! | 5. My Teacher is a Monster! (No, I am not) | 6. The Book With No Pictures | 7. All the animals were angry | 8. The Day The Crayons Quit | 9. Animalium (Welcome to the Museum) | 10. Pippi Longstocking | 11. Puss in Boots

"best alternative DIY Christmas trees"

The weather’s turned freezing, we are well in to December, lights and decorations are popping up everywhere; that can only mean one thing – Christmas is coming!  As I’ve been busy moving house, I haven’t really gotten in to the Christmas spirit but now I fully intend to.

With the chaos that a house move brings and moving to a home that needs complete refurbishing getting a Christmas tree isn’t going to work out this year.  Anya looks forward to decorating the tree each year so I don’t want to disappoint her and besides I want to have a little festive corner so that we all feel a bit more Chrismassy.  I thought instead of a real tree we can make our own alternative tree which Anya can help with.  That’s my plan for the coming weekend so I’ve been collecting ideas for alternate Christmas trees which are also great if you have limited space or some of these ideas are perfect for creating a little Christmas corner in your kids rooms too.  I especially love the simple washi tape Christmas tree (no. 2) which you can create so easily in any room of your home.  And aren’t those brush trees (no. 7) a great idea too?

Here’s where more about each tree: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8

"11 of the best activity books for kids"

My absolute favourite thing to gift kids is books – any kind of book from story books, to picture books to activity books.  Christmas gifts for Anya would not be complete without at least one book included but usually I give her many more.  If you’re crazy for kids books too then you’ll love today’s round-up of gifts.  I’ve chosen a range of the best kids activity books out there from drawing books to puzzles to colouring books.  These activity books are for a range of ages mostly from around 4 to 8 years but even younger kids can get stuck in with your help.  Here’s the selection:

"Christmas stocking fillers for kids"

Giving and receiving little gifts at Christmas is just as exciting as the big ones.  The little gifts can be stocking fillers or some can even be wrapped up and placed under the tree.  Also they’re great for when you have to give many gifts and don’t want to spend crazy amounts on each one.  I have rounded up some of the sweetest little gifts or stocking fillers around and here is the selection:

1. gold star wand | 2. vintage pavement chalk set | 3. origami note paper set | 4. mini soft toy dinosaurs | 5. punch out animal landscapes | 6. colourful little brooches | 7. retro elephant money box | 8. wooden toy slingshot | 9. star cushion | 10.glitter pink kids nail polish | 11. laduree limted edition Sonny Angel dolls | 12. monochrome soft toy doll
