My 2018 Christmas Gift Guide continues with this list of unique baby and toddler gifts for Christmas! This year, I am celebrating my son’s first Christmas and have been searching for babies first Christmas gift ideas. There are a tons of awesome Christmas gifts for babies under 1 year that I’m adding to my list. I’ve also made sure to add some options for older kids on in these gifts for toddlers and babies.
To be honest, this list could go on forever listing great baby and toddler Christmas gifts. If you don’t see something you’re looking for on here, checkout the official toy guides from Target and Amazon.
Sometimes, the simplest gifts are the best gifts. This unique toddler gift will make a game out of your little tyke spelling their name. The pieces are all wooden and large enough that they cannot be swallowed. And the best part is, you can make the puzzle as custom as you want! Pick your child’s favorite colors and turn it into this sign. I suggest it as a stocking stuff or a cheap find for littlest family members.
Apparently, this is a childhood classic. It’s been selling out online and in stores for years! This idea is so simple. The kids think they’re just having a great time spinning in circles, but they’re actually learning important motor skills. Teach your little one some coordination just by them laughing and playing. Depending on your child’s learning level, this item would be suitable for 12 months and older.
Here’s another useful gift for toddlers. This learning book helps teach babies and big kids words. If you look inside, there are many photos associated with each of the words to help kids learn easily. And like most gifts for toddlers and babiesLeapFrog toys, it focuses on reading and speaking. Your little sponge will be talking and reading in no time!
I’ve been searching for this little puppy for a while now. My son is just about ready to take off crawling and sits up pretty easily now. This cool seat has shapes and buttons to keep your baby entertained while sitting on the floor. Once they’re ready for a ride, they can sit on top and scoot themselves all around the room. Many companies have toys just like these, but this particular dog is an Amazon exclusive.
Why not bring the playground home? My nephews have something similar at their house and they love it. It’s perfect for a playroom or even a small backyard. The slide and staircase are just the right height for toddlers that are comfortable walking and climbing. There’s also a ball game on the side. The entire thing is perfect for solo or group play.
For Christmas, I really want to get my son his own mini furniture. I’ve been looking all over for something that’s big enough to grow with him. I found a boy version of this convertible couch. Basically, this little number pulls out into a lounging bed. This company also has a ton of different cartoons to choose from too.
Every where I go, there are Paw Patrol toys, clothes, books, backpacks – you name it! I found this cool race tower that features all of the characters. Although this toy mostly targets boys, it could be a fun item to use on a playdate with boys and girls.
Teaching my son to appreciate art is very important to me. He may not turn out to be a Michael Angelo, but he can at least develop the artistic side of his brain. This kid sized easel is perfect for toddlers, boys and girls, and can last for quite a long time. My oldest nephew is turning five in a few months and still plays with his.
For Christmas, my motto is go big or go home. What kid wouldn’t want their very own inflatable bounce house? And just think about all awesome parties you could reuse this at! It’s obviously a little pricey, but would be perfect for a backyard playground.
