Last year at this time I was sharing a Holiday Gift Guide for Infants when Noah was just a brand new baby. This year I’m sharing some of my most recommended baby gifts, best suited for babies age 6-18 months. Enjoy!
1. Baby Swing Sling ($28):
Have you ever gone to a playground with a baby that’s not quite old enough to swing on the normal swing and there is no baby swing available? This swing sling converts standard park swings to a swing for infants and toddlers. It’s portable and lightweight and both my kids loved it as babies.
2. Cuddle & Kind Doll ($62):
We’ve grown quite the village of these stuffed animals between my two kids, and they are so cute! We also love the good cause behind this brand – with every doll sold, they give 10 meals to children in the USA, Canada, and around the world.
3. Silicone Baby Bib Set ($18):
These bibs are a necessity in our house because my kids make such a mess when they eat. Having a pocket to catch all their scraps is just plain genius, and we love the punny sayings on them 🙂
4. On the Move Socks ($20):
Made with stay-on elastic gather & non-skid slip-guard application on the bottom, you can never go wrong with a set of socks for babies who are on the move.
5. Ball Pit ($289):
I told myself I wouldn’t get one of these because of the mess I anticipated, but we caved and gifted our daughter one for her first birthday and it has provided endless entertainment for both her and our younger son. Highly recommend!
6. First Walker Shoes ($36):
This is our favorite brand to buy shoes for our littles, and are perfect for babies who are just learning to walk. They have have adjustable velcro straps for a secure fit, a breathable cotton exterior, and high-traction rubber soles.
7. Personalized Puzzle Stool Bench ($170):
We were gifted these for both our kids last Christmas and they’re adorable! Our 2 year old likes to use the stool to help me cook in the kitchen and our 1 year old loves to play with the puzzle blocks and use it to support himself standing up.
8. Sleep Bag Walker ($65):
These sleep bags are made from a buttery-soft fabric and are slightly weighted. We’ve tried all sorts of sleep accessories for our kids over the past 2 years, and this brand is hands down the favorite 🙂 This walker version has ankle cuffs to keep the warmth in while also allowing for safe mobility.
9. Lovevery Playkit ($80):
Want to ensure your baby gift is age appropriate? Designed by child development experts, this awesome brand curates boxes of toys based on your child’s life stage.
10. Noah’s Arch Shape Sorter ($60):
Our baby is not quite old enough to sort shapes yet, but loves playing with the animal blocks in this sweet Noah’s Arch set.
11. Activity Cube ($99):
This is an awesome gift for babies to help develop their motor skills and coordination. This multifunctional cube comes with different play accessories that can keep them entertained for hours!
12. Animal Rocker ($164):
Our daughter was gifted one of these for her first Christmas, and they are so cute. While we had to support her in the beginning, she now can ride it all on her own and loves it!
13. Foamnasium ($250):
I so wish I had room for one of these in our home, because if I did I would be purchasing one of these sets. For energetic babies and toddlers who love to climb and need a safe place to do so, this is a great gift to keep them entertained and occupied 🙂
14. Sensory Balls ($47):
Our one year old is very into all sorts of balls right now, and I love how this sensory set is made of different shapes and colors.
15. Stacking Ring ($15):
Anything wood that my baby can hit together is entertainment, and these stacking rings check that box! This would be a great stocking stuffer for babies.
16. Push Car ($126):
Push cars are great gift for walks around the neighborhood, as a more fun alternative to strollers. This one includes music and horn and is currently on sale!
