Kids are what keep Christmas full of magic, and it is so fun to watch them open presents as their little cherub faces fill with excitement. It can be tough, though, to find the perfect gift when your child is only a baby, and doesn’t quite know what’s going on. Piles of gifts can feel a little over the top, not to mention all of the clutter that builds up in your house. Here are a few ideas for Christmas gifts for babies and toddlers.

When looking for Christmas gifts for babies and toddlers, this is a great idea! This is always at the top of all of our holiday gift lists for our young children. Memberships to museums and zoos, as well as lessons and classes, are the gift that keeps on giving. They don’t take up any extra space in the house, encourage you to get out into your community, facilitate family bonding, foster hands-on learning, and can be used over and over again all year round.
We are very selective about the quantity and quality of the toys we bring into our home, but books are pretty much always welcome. There are so many neat, interactive books that engage and captivate young audiences. You don’t even have to worry about baby tearing apart the flaps in “Life the Flap” books, because there are much sturdier options nowadays. Some of our favorites include Finger Puppet Books, Touch and Feel Cloth Books, and books with sliders.Christmas Gifts For Babies And Toddlers That Don’t Add Clutter Click To Tweet
It’s a fact: kids always need clothes. They grow so fast and clothes only get worn a few times before they’re onto the next size. While clothes can be a little boring to elementary school age kids who want all the latest toys, babies and toddlers don’t have as much as an opinion!
As I said earlier, we don’t like to have a bunch of toys in our house that just sit around and add to the mess. Musical instruments, however, are another item that I have a hard time saying no to. My son received a set of spinning bells when he was six months old, and two years later he still plays with it (he played it this morning while singing the ABC’s!). Melissa and Doug also makes a really cute set.
So, this toy is not exactly a space saver. These are typically bulky, noisy, and a bit of an eye sore. However, they will hold your kids’ attention and all ages love them. This box style is fun for all ages, but babies especially love them. You can also go the DIY route and make your own busy board with items from around the house and the hardware store. For older babies and toddlers, they might be more interested in an activity board, like this Latches Board or this Basic Skills Board.
When looking at Christmas gifts for babies and toddler, consider some of these gifts. Enjoy your holidays with your precious family- these are such special years!
