Baby’s Christmas Gift Ideas (Baby to Toddler Ages 0 – 3)
These items are broken up by category to help you navigate gift ideas for comfort, playtime and wearables/feeding.
Teething is a painful part of babyhood, for the baby and parents. You can make it much smoother for both of you, especially over the holidays, with a new teether. This green giraffe teether is BPA free or the Silicone Sugarbooger 2-pac of teethers are adorable as well.
Little ones can find comfort with a super-soft lovey and this oh-so-cuddly Jellycat is amazingly soft but there’s also this soft baby fawn lovey and my nephew has been sleeping with his cuddle Koala for three years now and it’s still holding up well.
Teething necklaces are a cute way for Mom to dress up her outfit but a total functional way to help little ones who are breaking teeth and want to be held at the same time. We’ve also had great success with an amber teething necklace with my youngest and can’t rave about them enough. It really helped us through the teething phase and she wasn’t every fussy when breaking her teeth like she was before we wore it.
Sleep Sheep-On-The-Go was a lifesaver when I’d head out to grocery shop or we were away from home and the soothing white noise instantly helped to calm down all of my kids. The velcro strap is great to secure around a carseat handle or other equipment like a bouncy chair or swing and let it work it’s magic. We also took this with us on airplanes and anytime we traveled. Another option is the compact Sound Bub portable white noise speaker which is rechargeable and won’t keep needing new batteries.
Hands down, our ultimate favorite stuffed animals of all time are the JellyCat Stuffed Animal line. They are the softest stuffies out there and come in small to large sizes based on the child’s age and size. This adorable Raccoon is a medium 12-inch size and by comparison, this is a 7-inch Owl who looks to be the perfect size as a stocking stuffer.
Little ones love to make noise and begin using their hands to generate sounds. The Hohner Musical Set is a great started collection of musical instruments perfect for little ones.
Just like Mom and Dad’s set of keys, but kid-friendly and the perfect solution so your keys never go missing again. This realistic set of B. FunKeys include fun sounds and lights and is made extremely well with safe plastics and stainless steel. (You can’t go wrong with any of the B. Toys like the set of drum and musical instruments or the squeeze stacking blocks. All of their products are durable and safe, and made well for each age group.)
Want a drum that’s going to last from babyhood to childhood, the Remo Bongo Drums aren’t too loud but are built to last even with the hardest of little drummers.
I simply adore all of the Jellycat Soft Cloth Tails Books. They’re adorable, but in soft fabrics with bright colors and lots of textured tails, they are perfect for littles ones who are learning to hone their tactile senses. There are 10 different variations of the tails collection, from Farm Tails to Dinosaur Tails and even Garden Tails, the fun and learning is never-ending!)
Stacking Cups are a simple toy that kids find entertaining and are great to take in the bath, use to stack with or in the sandbox at the park. They’re also easy to stack and take in your diaper bag with you on the go. These Green Sprouts stacking cups are BPA and PVC Free and made from plant based resin.
This Infantino texture ball set will help little ones develop their tactile senses and are also BPA free. 6 balls come in all different sizes, shapes and textiles.
Egg Shakers are a fun way to make noise, but also learn about rhythm and different sounds. These are great to take anywhere and perfect for rides in the car. These Skip Hop animal shakers are fun and whimsical or theres this colorful set of maracas to share with everyone in the family.
Soft spoons are great for learning how to eat solids, and are gentle on gums especially for little ones who are teething. The soft set of silicone spoons help you scrap the hard-to-reach corners of baby jars and are Safe and non toxic BPA, lead, phthalate, and plastic Free. (They’re also great for chewing on when teething!) This mini wear teething cutlery set will do just the trick!
Snack cups are an essential part of learning how to feed yourself and the soft cover of these Munchkin snack cups make it easy for kids to dig in to grab a handful of snacks but not spill and make a mess.
The lay flat lid of the Munchie Mug is prefect for keeping snacks fresh when kids don’t eat the entire thing and can safely store in your diaper bag or the cupboard for next time.
Little ones learning how to eat is a mess. They spill, drop food, drool and half the time the food makes it on their clothes and not in mouths. It’s all part of the learning process but these Waterproof Bumpkins bibs are easily washable and save you from laundering your kid’s clothes in order to salvage them from squash and spaghetti stains.
Munchkin creates these genius suction bowls which adhere to tables and high chairs so little ones can eat without throwing their food on the ground or to your dog who is begging for a taste underfoot.
WARM WINTER CLOTHING
Keeping little one’s hands and feet warm in winter months is important. These are my favorite boots and hat and glove set to keep fingers and toes frost free and nice and toasty.
- Fleece booties come in a variety of sizes and colors and the non-skid bottoms make it safe for walkers.
- Luvable Friends booties with a velcro closure can be easily put on over socks or onesies and the non-skid bottom is also essential for little ones testing out their walking skills. These come in a variety of colors and are available for 0 – 4T.
- The Hongteya Baby Moccasins with Fur Fleece linen and rubber soles keep kids warm during the winter months and look super cute too!
- Leather Moccasins with rubber soles are perfectly suited for little ones who have a grasp on walking and can move around more easily since babies and non-walkers don’t need a firm soled shoe.
- A matching hat and glove set is necessary for keeping little ones warm because they can quickly lose heat from their heat and hands. This dinosaur set is great for little boys and this is adorable for a little girl.
This inflatable duck bath was a favorite with all three of my kids. We could put it in the bath, in the backyard and travel with it too. The White Hot safety disc on the bottom also turns white when water is too hot, helping you regulate the temperature for little ones. Here’s an adorable whale bath tub and portable mini bathtub / pool for every occasion.
It’s a fact that there’s nothing cuter than a baby after bath time wrapped in a animal hooded towel like this elephant or boston terrier dog towel. (there are over a dozen different animals to chose from too.)
Cute baby bibs are a fashion accessory but also keep clothes clean and dry from drooling and teething babies.
Lovely animal knee-high socks – Owl, Fox, Bear, Cow, Cat cartoon design socks keep your baby warm with a fashionable cute look.
