5 Baby Gift Ideas for The Holidays

Baby’s first holiday season is a cause for celebration. From the sweetest baby toys, to essential baby gear, newborn babies are fun to shop for during the holidays, and their parents will surely appreciate it! Our advice? Keep baby’s gifts practical, high-quality, and cute, and you’re sure to get plenty of ooh’s and ahh’s come time for opening presents.

Cozy Booties

Keep baby cozy with a pair of booties. Zutano has a wide selection of different colors, materials and sizes. Not only are they adorable, but this is a practical holiday gift that will ensure baby’s feet stay warm around the house and on-the-go. 

Practical Playard

For the baby's first Christmas or Hanukkah, consider a playard. A playard provides a safe environment to put down your baby. They can relax on their back while they’re little and play when they get big enough. From holiday visits with friends to baking cookies, you’ll have a lot going on during the holidays and you’ll need two hands free.

Classic Books 

When in doubt, one of the best baby gift ideas is a book. Classics like “Goodnight Moon” and “The Tale of Peter Rabbit” are essentials for every baby’s bookshelf. You can give books on their own, or add them to another smaller present. Reading to your little one can become one of your new holiday traditions as a family.

Soft Hooded Towel

Baby hooded towels are uniquely designed to fully dry your baby’s head and keep them cozy and comforted after bathtime. Plus, you can continue to use a hooded towel over your little one’s first few years. Maisonette is your go-to for sweet patterns and soft towels. 

Baby Swing

A baby swing is the gift that keeps on giving. When nothing else will calm your fussy baby, try a baby swing, which uses a gentle rocking motion to soothe your little one’s worries. The rocking mimics the gentle motion of being in mama’s womb, which calms your baby more than anything else. 

If you are shopping for baby toys or gear, try to invest in items that are useful and have a function, rather than just being for show. For all the challenges new parents will face, your small contribution to their peace of mind will be much appreciated no matter what!
