K was born five days after Christmas, so he was just about one before he got to experience his first Christmas. Because of that, I didn’t really get to experience “baby’s first Christmas” since by his first Christmas he wasn’t really a baby anymore! J, however, will be 7 months at Christmas time, so this year we will have baby’s first Christmas! Hooray!
In honor of that, I thought it would be fun to round up some good gifts for a baby. I hope you enjoy these ideas for the little bitty one in your life!
The ring part is really easy for little hands to grab and the little fingers are the perfect size for chewing. Plus, the silicone material is safer than plastic and such a great texture for ouchy gums.
It is something that would be fun for both him and big brother to crawl in, but will also easily fold up to be stored away since we don’t have a lot of room for big toys like this.
On the topic of toys for climbing, this is another gift I am pondering for this Christmas. While a little pricey, these awesome climbing blocks would be a toy that both my boys would play with for years.
They are perfect for gross motor building (especially when you can’t get outside some days) and are open ended for lots of imaginative play. I know my fellas (and all their little friends) would love them!
Since J is six months old now, I have been looking into getting him a water cup. While I don’t mind plastic for things that will be drank right away during a meal, for a water bottle that will be sipped all day, I do prefer glass or stainless steel.
I really want a small stainless steel straw cup with handles, but haven’t been able to find one with all those qualifications. This Green Sprouts cup is close, but it is glass instead of stainless. For a BPA free plastic cup, I thought this one looked good.
Ball’s are one of my go-to baby gifts and would make a perfect stocking stuffer!
When K was a baby, he had a set of tiny board books, I believe they were Baby Einstein. He loved them for the longest time. They were the perfect size and only had a few pages, he loved being able to “read” them by himself. I always kept a couple in the diaper bag.
I found these Leslie Patricelli baby books and they look awesome! The same style books, but with the always adorable Leslie Patricelli style. I’ll definitely be looking at these for J.
Don’t care for the fox? No worries! There are 13 different styles!
8. Infantino Squeeze and Stack Block Set
J is always trying to move in on big brother’s block buildings, so I’m thinking I might need to get him this set of soft blocks that are perfect for babies.
Soft enough to chew on, yet sturdy enough to stack, I think he would love having these to play with.
I have a teething necklace like this one, but I would love to have one of these really cool silicone necklaces – I know J would love it too! Isn’t it pretty?
Plus, it’s a two for one gift – a gift for mom and baby!
Perfect for fussy, clingy babies, or babies like mine who just want to be up and seeing the world, this carrier is my absolute favorite. Now that J is big enough, my favorite way to use it is in the backpack position – makes life so much easier!
