How to choose the best Christmas gifts for babies

Unless you’re familiar with which toys the baby already has, it’s generally a good idea to ask the parents for Christmas gift ideas. Babies, even in the early stages of development, have favorite toys, sounds, colors and books. Asking the parents what the baby already has makes your shopping experience easier.

Babies are fun to buy for because everything is new to them. Lights excite their sense of sight while calming musical toys delight their ears. When considering a Christmas gift for a baby, think of the five senses. The toy should engage their sense of touch, sound, sight, smell and taste.

Taste and smell are important, since most babies will put anything and everything in their mouths. This means choking is also a safety concern. Be sure to choose toys based on compatibility with the baby’s age.

Clothing is also a good choice. Think ahead when you buy clothing, especially if you choose items meant for the upcoming season. Babies change sizes quickly!

What can I get the baby who has everything?

Some babies are blessed with abundant nurseries. Don’t worry: You can never have enough baby clothes and shoes, since they’re constantly getting stained or grown out of. A little headband or hat also makes an adorable baby gift for a little one who already has enough toys.

What are the best DIY Christmas gifts for babies?

For the craftiest among us, a handmade blanket is a very traditional gift for a baby. If you’re especially talented, you can knit, crochet or quilt a beautiful and warm present. But even if you aren’t crafty, don’t worry: You can hand tie a fleece blanket with minimal skills, and it’s the thought that counts.
