5 Classic Holiday Gifts For Baby You Just Can’t Go Wrong With
OK, can we just be honest and admit that buying holiday gifts for babies can be a little weird? Like, on one hand, it's so much fun to have your first Christmas together or holiday party or celebrate at home together, but on the other … what do you really buy for a human who spends the majority of his or her time drooling, eating, and pooping their pants?
I mean, seriously. Just in case you happen to be in the same boat I have been for the last few years, with a baby at home, here are some relatively simple and affordable baby gift ideas that both of you might actually enjoy.
I love bath toys as baby gifts because you just can't go wrong with them. Babies love baths and parents love when babies love baths because it means a few minutes of peace. And those moments of peace are made all the better with some fun bath toys. Think anything that pours, splashes, or is downright adorable, like the new Disney line of SoapSox bath toys, which double as bath sponges and toys. Genius.
Shape sorting toys are kind of a classic — and for good reason. They are so fun for babies, educational, and offer all kinds of entertainment for little ones who love to sort and well, slobber. This option from Green Toys is made in the USA from recycled food-safe plastic and is free from BPA, phthalates, or PVC.
Books are always a winner for a baby gift and you totally get bonus points for books featuring bright colors and animals. I feel like you can never have too many books in the house and the earlier you introduce your kids to a love of reading, the better.
What's better than baby leggings? Personalized baby leggings, of course. You can personalize your baby's very own set of leggings with his or her name, color, or even state for the perfect gift that will also make the perfect photo op. Hashtag proud mom moment.
Every baby needs a set of wooden blocks to play with. Not only is it one of the most simple toys, it's also one of the most versatile. I'm not exaggerating when I say that our basket full of blocks is the single most played with toy in our entire house. You will be amazed by how much you can get done with a baby, a rug, and a stack of blocks. This set is especially cute because it features nursery rhymes printed on each block and it's completely non-toxic, so you don't have to worry about your baby chewing on them.
