10 Great Gifts for Baby’s First Christmas
November 22, 2018
Are you wondering which baby gift is the best baby gift? It can be difficult to navigate through all of the options. So, we’re here to help you out. Below are ten great gifts (in no particular order) that are perfect for baby’s first Christmas. (Or whichever holiday you choose to celebrate.)
1. Comotomo Silicone Baby Teether (From $7)
Babies love bitting their fingers, especially when they’re teething. Comotomo’s teether is the perfect safe and chewy teether for your little one and it may give you a few hours of silent bliss.
2. Freshly Picked Moccasins (From $45)
These are the soft soles that rule them all. Shoes that are stylish, comfortable and that (most importantly) stay on. Plus, Freshly Picked has a killer rewards program and a stylish collection of bags. So you can get a gift for you, too.
This toy is transitional and has four modes of play for every baby stage. So your baby can lie on her back and look at the dangling toys and eventually end up playing on the detachable piano when she’s older. It’s also great for tummy time.
4. BabyLit Books (From $10)
BabyLit books are a wonderful way to introduce classic stories to your baby, while also helping her learn colors, numbers and words. The bright, colorful illustrations are a delight to look at, and you’ll find that collecting them can be kind of addicting.
5. 3 Sprouts Play Mat Bag (From $16)
This genius contraption serves as a toy storage bag that opens up to be a play mat. It’s a great way to keep toys clean and out of the way, and is portable, which will make all of those holiday family get-togethers a little less stressful.
Not all footie pajamas are created equal. And these footie pajamas are the best footie pajamas of all the footie pajamas. Why, do you ask? Because the sipper starts at the bottom instead of the top. Which means night diaper changes will be infinitely easier, and baby will get to stay cozy.
7. Covered Goods Multi-Use Cover ($35)
This is the OG of nursing covers, but if covered nursing isn’t your jam, it has various other uses. These covers are soft, well constructed and come in various colors/patterns. Our advice: use this cover as a car seat cover. It can also be used as a shopping cart cover, which will be useful when your baby gets a little older.
8. Sassy Developmental Bumpy Ball ($11)
This fun toy is designed to excite your baby’s senses with its bright colors, unique shape and rattle-like function. It’s small enough for your baby to hold and carry, and will help her develop fine motor skills at a young age.
9. Skip Hop Stroller/Car Seat Toy ($10)
This is a great portable toy that vibrates when the handle is pulled. It’s visually interesting and a great distraction for your baby, whether she’s in her car seat or in her stroller. It’s perfect if you’re taking a road trip over the hills and through the woods to grandmother’s house.
10. Owlet Cam (From $149)
This is a gift that’s more for you than for baby. The Owlet Cam streams high-quality video with night vision and two-way audio right to your smartphone over a secure, encrypted WiFi connection. It also integrates seamlessly with the Owlet Smart Sock.
