Christmas Gifts for Babies

With Christmas a little over a week away I’ve had so many relatives asking me what they can gift Bridget. Clearly my answer of “I don’t know” was not good enough. At 6 months Bridget can be easily distracted by pretty much anything, but keeping her attention is another thing!
So I’ve put on my research hat and found some great toys that are reasonably priced and most of all engaging for your little one.

Oball Flex n Go Activity Arch

This Oball Flex N Go Activity Arch looks amazing and frankly I wish I’d known about this when Bridget was a newborn as it would’ve made many car rides a bit more enjoyable. What’s nice is that this just clips onto the sides of the car seat and will keep baby looking up and entertained. The toys are also detachable so you can use them as separate toys. Win-Win!

My Pal Violet

Top of the list is Leapfrogs My Pal Violet. I’ll admit this is already wrapped and under our tree. Violet (or Scout if you have a little boy) can be personalized for your little one by using your phone!
I was intrigued because Violet will say Bridget’s name and spell it for her and really engages her. (We may have tried the toy out at Target), it even plays 5 different lullabies for 10-15 minutes which is awesome because it can get a little tiring pushing the little buttons on Bridget’s different stuffed animals to get them to play a tune.

Little Tikes Light ‘n Go – 3-in-1 Activity Walker

What’s better than getting one gift? Getting 3 gifts all in one! This Little Tikes 3-in-1 Walker is perfect if your little one is a supported sitter and you can begin using it right away as it starts as a sit & play activity center, then a standing activity table and finally a walker. I love the lights that it has and knowing my little one, she will definitely use this walker to chase them around the house once she’s up on her feet and mobile.

Infantino PlayGym & TeePee

This is awesome. We had a close friend gift us a playgym (that is amazing) but I have had a secret yearning for this teepee. The Infantino Go GaGa Infant to Toddler Play Gym & Fun TeePee grows with your baby and becomes a fun little bedroom addition for your toddler.

Evenflo Exersaucer

If we had anymore room in our home we would totally have invested in one of these Evenflo activity centers. A girlfriend of mine has a similar one in her home and her little bub adores hanging out in it. It’s great to be able to place your little one in there and have them be able to entertain themselves while you give your arms a well deserved break.

I hope you find these gift suggestions helpful. Shopping for babies is hard because you really want something that is educational and also helpful during those times when you’ve got to do 5 things at once but have to hold a baby. Being able to have functional gifts is amazing, and I’ve definitely suggested these to my family members.
