How to choose the best Christmas gifts for babies

Unless you are familiar with the toys and learning products the baby already has, it generally a good idea to ask the parents for Christmas gift ideas. Babies, even in the early stages of development, have their favourite toys, sounds, colours and books. By asking the parents what the baby already has and what they would like as their child grows, makes your shopping experience easier.

Babies are often easier to buy for because everything is so new to them. Lights attract their sense of sight while calming musical toys delight their ears. When considering Christmas baby gifts think of the five senses. The toy or group of toys should delight their sense of touch, sound, sight, smell and taste. Taste and smell are important given most babies put anything and everything in their mouths - but it is also a safety concern so always make sure the toys have been checked for the safety. Choose toys based on compatibility with the baby's age.

Clothing as Christmas gifts is also a good choice. Think ahead when you buy clothing especially if you buy ahead for the upcoming season. Babies change sizes quickly. Going with clothes or learning toys vs play toys may be the wish of the parents.
