@Chillies I have to make sure I get Santa presents, as DD1 will notice and presents from us, so DS might be about 2 weeks old at Christmas so he will get some baby toys which I have already gotten from Santa and from us I will probably let DD1 help choose a present for her brother and maybe something nice for his bedroom.
I'm not going too crazy. DD1 on the other hand, might get a bit extra this year seeing as she won't be centre of attention anymore

Great suggestions so far-I have purchased a swing and teething rings so far LOL. I have also noticed in the aus post brochure that they have book sets which I'm going to check out I definitely don't want to go crazy but I also don't want to wrap things I already have.

I bought all my newborns a 'Flat Out' bear, they are absolutely gorgeous, made out of wool, and can be used as a comforter because they're flat. If you haven't seen one, just do a little google so you know what I'm mean.
My only other suggestion is 'Sophie the Giraffe' all my kids loved Sophie. 😊

I haven't read the other replies but just remember what you buy now has to last him until his next birthday (unless you are happy buying more in between). If you have lots of newborn stuff I would consider things like a ball that rolls by itself, a jolly jumper and possibly a walker (the sort you push).

DD was about 3 months for her first Christmas, and we got her:
-a Grug book
-a pack of her favourite dummies at the time
-a car rug for her room (you know, the ones with all the roads etc.)
The rug was by far the best choice - nearly 2 years later and it's used every day.
Of things that other people bought her, the one I remember best was a clothes hanger like this
Again, it's used daily. I can't actually remember what else she got off the top of my head apart from some clothes.

Adding on to uniquey's comforter idea. Aden and Anais, a gorgeous muslin company, make security blankets/comforters. Small squares of their printed muslins with satin trim and with or without a little animal head. They come in pairs so you have one to wash and are super soft and sweet. DS loves his! Also, because they're muslin they're breathable so you don't have to worry if you end up with a baby that places it in on their face to sleep. DS rubs it between his fingers when he's falling asleep, so sweet. I'm including a link of the one he has but if you explore their whole selection you'll find different prints and colors or ones with heads. They're called an 'issie' (or maybe issy )

Dd will be 4 months at Christmas. She's getting books, Sophie the giraffe, pram toy, walker (the push one) and a couple of bits and pieces as stocking fillers like bath toys. We are also buying a little pool as a joint gift for all 3 kids
