Christmas is right around the corner. I’ve curated this ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Babies to help make shopping for that special little one in your life a breeze. What’s so unique about this selection is that it includes the items that Jaxon and I loved the most during his first year of life.
With all the news of supply chain shortages, it’s important that you start shopping sooner than later to avoid any extra stress. I love to shop early because it leaves me that much more time to make magical holiday memories with my family. I can beat the crowd and sit back, relax, and enjoy the season without worrying about making any last-minute store runs. Who am I kidding? There’s always something I need, such as batteries, so don’t forget to add those to your list too.
I absolutely love cuddle+kind dolls. These beautiful dolls are hand-knit, and for each doll sold, 10 meals are donated to children in need.
Lou Lou & Company Top+Bottom sets are the softest ever. Jaxon lived in these sets nonstop until he was able to crawl, and they make great loungewear. The newborn sets even come with built-in footies and fold-over cuffs for the hands.
The padded circle mat from Gathre is perfect for babies of all ages. This cushy memory foam covered in Gathre’s signature wipeable faux leather is great for use during tummy time, rest, or play.
The Boon GRUB high chair is awesome. Not only does it have a minimalistic look, but it is so easy to clean. The seat and tray are dishwasher safe and the seat cover and straps can go right in the washer with baby’s laundry.
If you could only pick one thing on this list, the Hatch Rest should be it. I would say it’s a must-have for every nursery. It literally works like magic. The Hatch Rest includes a variety of sounds to help create a calm environment and multiple color hues to double as a nightlight. I also love that you can use it for your older littles as well. It has a unique rise-to-wake feature that’s great for toddlers, letting them know it’s time to wake up or that it’s okay to remain in bed a little longer.
The Oribel PortaPlay Stage-Based Activity Center is the first and only Baby Activity Center with stage-based playtime for your baby! As your baby evolves and grows rapidly, so do the toys in PortaPlay ensuring their holistic development in the first year. It stays with your family for years, as it transforms into a table. Complete with a refreshingly modern design to complement perfectly your home aesthetic, it keeps you and the baby delighted.
The Kyte BABY sleep bag is heaven-sent. Jaxon has been wearing one since he transitioned out of the swaddle at 12 weeks, and it helps him sleep so well. This wearable blanket is so soft and it’s made of 97% bamboo rayon fabric.
The Snuggle Me® Lounger is a unique lounging pad designed to hug your baby’s full body. This snuggling sensation is highly effective at calming and comforting your baby when you need extra support. It’s literally the next best thing to holding a baby in your arms and works great for photos as well.
Jaxon’s skin was so sensitive and dry when he was a baby. Tubby Todd was well recommended by so many moms in various groups on Facebook, so I decided to try it out. I’m so glad I did. It works so well in keeping his skin moisturized and the all-over ointment helped clear up his cradle cap in just a few weeks.
Stacking toys help develop the mind and brain starting around six months. These mushie stacking cups are a great color scheme and the perfect gender-neutral educational toy for growing babies. They not only help with fine motor skills, but they include holes for water and bath play as well.
We gifted Jaxon this Busy Baby Activity Chair last Christmas, and it’s still one of his favorites. He loves to lounge it. It has plenty to keep your little one busy, including a mirror, rattle, squeaky toy, and more. Best of all, it’s made from soft but sturdy foam, so it’s safe as can be for even the busiest of babies.
This Wonder & Wise Baby Activity Walker is the newest edition to our home. Jaxon received this for his birthday, and he absolutely loves it. I love that it’s multifunctional and can be used for babies that are just sitting up as well as for walking toddlers. It’s complete with so many activities for hours of fun!
I had so much fun putting this Christmas Guide for Babies round-up together, and I hope it helps make finding that perfect gift this holiday season easier for you.
