Christmas Gift Guides for Babies
When you have a baby the urge to buy them a shit-tonne of stuff is strong, but believe me the saying ‘less is more’ definitely applies. My biggest recommendation would be to get a Jumperoo or equivalent which are a huge lifesaver when you want to do a few jobs. They’re big, brightly coloured, and make a lot of noise but are definitely worth it!
We did sensory classes with our youngest two so we put together sensory baskets which included some bought items and the rest were things like ribbons, sponges, material, wooden spoons which they all love to play with.
Lamaze Freddie the Firefly Pram Toy – RRP £11.99
I love this range. I used to sell them back in the day when I had my online baby shop. There are loads of features including crinkles, teething rings, and squeakers.
Fisherprice Jumperoo – RRP £119
I said I wasn’t going to get one of these when I was pregnant with Freddie as they’re huge but I succumbed for the want of a hot cup of tea and five minutes of free arm time.
Ewan the Dream Sheep – RRP £39.99
This is slightly different from the original Ewan as it has soothing lights and white noise sounds which is activated by babies movement
Baby Einstein Musical Activity Bar – RRP £21.99
This is great for tummy time or sitting up with three settings – Colours, Animals and Xylophone.
Wooden Bunny Pop-up Toy – RRP £12.99
This toy is really simple but such a lot of fun. Put the Bunny in the hole in the top and press it down – and it pops up.
Vtech Activity Cube – RRP £28.00
This cube has a different activity on each side. A word of warning is that the volume control is loud and louder but it’s definitely a thumbs up from Freddie as a baby.
Hide and Squeak Eggs – RRP £10.99
This is such a simple toy but so much fun. You take the eggs out and put them back in time and time again with a little squeak here and there.
Fisher Price Shape Sorter – RRP £14.99
All babies love a shape sorter and this one has ten shapes and a carry handle.
Wooden Teething Activity Toy – RRP £14.00
This toy is great for little hands to grip and seems to keep their attention with bright colours and the ability to stretch and squash it down.
Touch and Feel Activity Book – RRP £17.99
Babies love touch and feel different materials. These books are full of crinkles, squeaks and textures. My kids had something similar to these but I would definitely buy these for any new babies in the family.
