‘We found it rather tricky to know what to buy Enzo for his first Christmas as he was too young to get excited. So we decided to get him a classic keepsake book set, a Beatrix Potter collection, which is super cute, and The Christmas Story, which we intend to bring out every year and read to him as a bit of a tradition.’ Anna, mum to Enzo, two; Anna Williamson, @awilliamsontv. Beatrix Potter The Complete Tales, £32., Waterstones.

‘First Christmas presents are tough because little ones don’t really know what’s going on and are often more interested in the wrapping! But we decided to get an investment piece for Aarya - a wooden kitchen from Asda. I pimped it myself and painted it in Farrow and Ball colours so it was easy on the eye for us!’Rohini, mum to Aarya, four; @rohiniwahi. Wooden kitchen, £39.97, Asda.

Baby's first trike

‘The only thing River still owns and still absolutely loves from his first Christmas haul is his Scuttlebug ride-on. Great value for money and although he couldn’t ride it unaided for a while, it’s definitely brought hours of fun over the years.’Carrie, mum to River, four; @mre.soeur. Scuttlebug Tiger Trike, £29.99, John Lewis & Partners.

Baby's first walker

‘This Christmas will be the first with Evie so I’ll try to be restrained and buy only things she will need, like a walker, but I know I won’t be able to resist a few frivolous bits, like a novelty Christmas outfit and maybe a wooden rocker for when she’s older. If you can’t indulge a little at Christmas - when can you?’ Catherine, mum to Evie, eight months; @catherinemhudson. London bus wooden walker, £59.99, Kiddimoto.

Baby's first savings

‘Both of my kids were really young so I got them each a lovely, ceramic moneybox that you can’t open – you have to smash it. I had them personalised and popped a little note in and every year they put birthday money in. They’ve just spent their “savings” on their family holiday in Legoland!’ Lainey, mum to Tyleah, seven and Blake, five; @laineyp_pt. Money pots, £22.50, Terramundi.

Baby's first shopping list

‘We bought Alba a kitchen for her first Christmas present but because she was a bit too small to use it straight away it was the pots, pans and basket of fruit and veg that were the real winners. Because they were plastic and brightly coloured they were great for her to grab hold of and then later play “chefs” with. Carl, dad to Alba, three; @carlprince.pt. Basket and play food, £12.50, John Lewis & Partners.
