Even though your little one likely will never even notice, consider indulging in some of these fun gifts for babies this holiday season. Each of them is a completely practical item that you will benefit from as your baby grows, so they are good things to put on your “wish list” or to give to a young baby you know and love.
- Multi-Colored Letters and Numbers Play Mat: Edushape Edu-Tiles 36 Piece Play Mat, Letters & Numbers Set ($49.45) Most moms you meet will tell you this was invaluable: a nice cushioned surface for baby to play on with letters and numbers. It’s reversible and can be adjusted to size or made into blocks.
- Skip Hop Activity Owl: Skip Hop Hug and Hide Activity Toy, Owl ($16.14) Squeaks and rattles and much much more, this toy has over 10 developmental activities including teethers and it’s nice-lookin’ too!
- Sophie the Giraffe: Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether ($18.49) If you didn’t receive Sophie as a shower gift, she should be on your holiday gift list. Good for squeezing, chewing and smelling, she’s 100% natural rubber — an all-around delight for a young baby and a newly christened classic
- Whoozit Soft Activity Book: Whoozit “What’s Red?” Soft Book ($14.99)A stimulating, engaging book and fully washable! Can’t beat it!
- Baby Cloth Stackable Nesting Blocks: Bright Starts Grab and Stack Blocks ($6.39)This is a very basic toy that will be fun for your baby to hold. You can begin the process of building with your baby using this and not worry about her eating the blocks.
- Skip Hop Bath Kneeler: Skip Hop Moby Bath Kneeler, Blue ($13.02) This is more of a gift for mom than baby, and will allow your knees to stay nice and comfy as you bathe your baby. One of those little indulgences you might not treat yourself too but that you would love to have, and practical too! Safe and easy to dry by sticking on your towel rod, a great invention! I don’t have one of these and I wish I had!
