There are a million and one different holiday gift guides going around the internet right now but I’m jumping on the bandwagon and making it a million and two. I always find other people’s gift guides helpful and I usually get really great ideas from them so I thought it would be fun to come up with a few of my own. All week long I will be bringing you gift ideas for things I know and love such as kids, Food, health and fitness. Today I’m starting off with a gift guide for babies, or more specifically little ones ranging in age from 0-18 months. All of these items are things we own, or are planning to gift this Christmas and I can assure you they are tried and true favorites.
Mega Bloks Jeep Ride on- My parents are getting this for Parker as he is at the point now where he is pulling up on everything and not far from walking. Scottie received something similar at her first Christmas and three years later she’s still using it.
Zutano fleece booties- I can’t express my love for these enough and I have turned many friends on to them as well. With a snap closure on the side these cozy booties stay on your babies feet all day long. They now come with grippers on the bottom, which is perfect for little one’s pulling up and learning to walk.
Pottery Barn Anywhere Chair- This is another gift that worked for Scottie at her first Christmas so we are repeating the same thing this year for our little man. Think family movie nights and weekend mornings watching cartoons. This chair will be used for many years to come.
Kidsme Food Feeder- This is a safe and easy way for your child to enjoy fresh food and nutrients at an early age without the risk of choking. It’s easy to use and ideal for babies and mommies on the go. Put soft fruit, vegetables or meat into the silicone sac and shut the snap lock. The Food Feeder encourages your child to self-feed without the risk of choking. We’ve also found it works well for a child whose teething, as it gives them something soft to chew on.
B. Funkeys– I don’t know what it is about key’s, cell phones, and remotes that always grab little ones attentions but I am constantly having to take these items away from Parker. I’m hoping these may work as a little distraction.
Toysmith Pro-Ball Set-Parker chases these balls around all day long and his big sister enjoys getting in on the fun to.
Little Tikes Swing -We attached one of these to the play set in the backyard and it’s been a huge hit. Many evenings before dinner are spent swinging away.
Little Foodie Cookbook -OK so this is more for the parents but if the baby wants to eat good food then they will certainly appreciate this gift. I try making most of Parker’s food and this cookbook has become my number one resource. The recipes take little time to prepare and they’re creative and delicious for the tiny tasters. The recipes begin at 6 months of age and they go on up to 24+ months making it perfect for older kids as well.
Pum Pum Drum -I started both of my kids in music class at an early age and received a positive response for both times. This little set is perfect for the little ones to make some noise and a little music of their own.
Touch and feel books -These interactive books are so much fun for little ones to develop fine motor skills while building an early language
