It’s time for some more Christmas gifts guides on the blog – this time for babies!
Babies are not the easiest to buy for, especially when it comes to toys. You can always buy things that are too old ready for when they grow up, or if you do a bit of research on gift guides like this one, you will be sure to get some fab ideas that will be more age appropriate.
1. Melissa & Doug Rainbow Stacker Lamb had a stacker similar to this when he was younger and he still loves it now. It’s such a simple toy but one that is suitable for all ages. When they are little they are attracted the the colours and shapes, and as they grow up they learn to stack them in the right order and say each colour. You can read our review on Lambs stacker here. You can buy this stacker on amazon for under £5.
2. Galt Toys New Baby Puzzle Puzzles are great for all ages. Of course, a young baby can’t complete the puzzles, but they can play with the colour full pieces and simple puzzles, like this one from Galt, are a great way of getting your little one to put pieces together and learn to match colours etc. Lamb loves jigsaws and still loves his very first one he got for his first birthday.
3. Viga Wooden Shape Sorting Box A shape sorting toy is a great gift for a baby. This is something they can play with as soon as they can hold things. They will be attracted to the colours and eventually learn to put the shapes into the correct holes. A box like this is great because it has a lid and can be easily stored! This sorting box is on offer for £4.75 on Amazon.
4. Rubber Duck Bath Toys Rubber ducks might seem like such a basic gift, but Lamb absolutely loves his when he was a baby! They were the perfect bath time toy. He would chew and suck on them and it would keep him quiet while I bathed him. Every baby needs a rubber duck! You can read our review on the H&A bath time buddies here. This set is only £2.80 on Amazon!
5. That’s Not My Lamb Book Of course I had to feature the That’s Not My Lamb book (and of course Lamb has it on his bookshelf!) But we all know there’s many more to choose from. We have around 5 of these in our house and they are perfect as first books, but will still be enjoyed by even 4 year olds! My nephew loves reading them when he comes to play. They retail at £5.99, but a lot are less than £5 on Amazon.
I hope you’ve found this guide useful and have some ideas for Christmas gifts for the babies in your lives! Stay tuned for my next instalment of Christmas gift guides for babies. You can see my toddler guide here or click the Christmas tab at the top of the page.
