My granddaughter is having her first Christmas this year, too, and she will be almost 11 months old.
She doesn't really need any toys, but she will get some age appropriate toys and some toys that are above her age that we can pull out when she is old enough. She will need clothes, of course. I loved it when my daughters got ornaments as gifts when they were babies! For my oldest daughter, I packed hers away so when she has her own home and tree she will have some ornaments to begin with. :)
It doesn't always have to be about toys, either. Savings bonds, gift cards, and "big kid" plates, bowls, cups, and utensils are great to have - maybe not for the baby, but when they are older they will love the savings bonds, the parents will love the gift cards, and everyone enjoys them eating off their new "big kid" sets. :)
Take lots of photos or have a photo session at the photo place in Walmart!
