We’ve got some good news for you! Christmas is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking about those perfect gifts. You know, the ones that are the perfect size for those adorable little hands to grasp.
We’ve got a list of the best gifts for your precious baby girl or boy that are fun, but practical too. Gifts that will get used over and over again, helping your little one develop those all-important fine motor skills and interact with their surroundings. If that is what you need, you’ve come to the right place!
So, get ready to unwrap our list of baby’s first Christmas gifts. It’s going to be fun, so let’s get started!
I cannot say enough good things about this toy! This activity cube is the one I alluded to at the beginning that my kids just LOVE!
It has so many different activities on it, that appeal to a wide age range of kids that you will certainly get your money’s worth out of this toy. If you only get one toy this year for your baby or toddler, make it this one; it's a great gift idea!
My 5 year old who loves animals had a blast with this toy for many years! It's just so much fun!
Welcome your new little one with this cute and customized baby's first Christmas ornament! It's made from wood, so you'll never have to worry about it breaking. This idea will make the perfect gift for new parents!
Activity gyms are a great way to entertain even the youngest of babies and they’re also great for older babies who need some tummy time. This one is a favorite of mine because it’s not an eyesore in your living room, it’s made of sturdy wood and it doesn’t have any obnoxious sounds.
These books are pure genius! I went through so many books with my boys because they tore paper books and ate every board book (seriously, it looked like we had a dog). These books are tear-proof, chew-proof, and non-toxic. They’re basically the perfect books for babies.
And they're a great way to help your preschool or kindergarten kids become little bookworms!
I’ve talked about Sophie before in this post about the best baby shower gift ideas because she is one of the best teethers on the market. She’s made of 100% natural rubber, food paint, and individually hand-painted. Plus, my teething monster loved chewing on her ears! It's a fun alternative to a teething ring.
We've found the perfect gift for your little one's first Christmas celebration! It's a mix of fun and learning that will make your baby boy's first Christmas unforgettable!
This adorable puzzle is more than just a toy. It's a colorful, engaging way to help your child learn their name while also having a blast with the adorable animal pieces. It's perfect for Christmas Eve playtime or anytime really!
But don't just take our word for it. This unique gift has received glowing 5-star reviews from happy parents praising its quality and charm.
This learning stuffed animal has been a favorite of both of my kids because of its features. Scout sings songs, talks and plays music that is customizable to your child.
You can put in things like your kid’s name, their favorite colors, foods and more and Scout will include it in his songs. I bought one of these for each of my kids when they were babies and my boys were still interested in them until they were about 4 years old.
The Bumbo is a great product for babies who are learning to sit up on their own. I think of this gift more for mom (since it helps keep baby occupied for a bit), but babies also love being able to be in a new position and check out everything around them.
My only cautions with the Bumbo are to be sure you don’t use it too much and be aware if you have chubby-legged babies that they may not be able to use it for very long (I know this from personal experience).
Yes, there are two activity gyms on this list. But I couldn’t decide which one I prefer. This baby gym is more traditional looking, but I love that it plays on the teepee trend.
You can use the teepee sticks to display overhead objects for when your baby is on his back or you can take them down and simply use the floor mat. Plus, look how cute those little woodland creatures are!
These all earn my vote for the best baby’s first Christmas gifts. Let me know in the comments below if there are any toys your baby loved that I missed.
