Holiday 2014 Gift Guide: Babies

Buying gifts for the youngest on your list can be difficult because, well, they can’t tell you what they want. That’s what we’re here for!

Little Tikes Giggly Gears Spin ‘N’ Stroll

The Little Tikes Giggly Gears Spin ‘N’ Stroll is a walker and table top play set in one. As a walker, baby can see and hear the gears moving as they walk. When used as a table top activity center, baby can add in extra spinning gears to customize the toy. Available exclusively at Toys’R’Us | $34.99 | Ages 9-36 months

Reindeer Bath Wrap

Made from the softest natural cotton terry, this adorable hooded towel makes the perfect bath time companion, even after the holiday season. The towel comes in a set; the matching wash cloth makes a great puppet for even more fun at bath time. Available at Indigo | $19.50 | Suitable from birth

Personalized Wall Art

The gift of art is something we often think to give to adults, but it isn’t usually something we think of giving to a bay. But an adorable framed print for the wall of their nursery is a thoughtful and fun present. We love these wood prints by Impressions Designs; everyone is all about canvas printing, but printing on wood gives wall art a warm texture and a subtle vintage feeling. Available at Impression Designs | $65.00-$120.00

Puppy’s Smart Stages Train

Fisher-Price’s new line of Smart Stages toys have adjustable settings that allow the toys to develop along with your child. Our pick for this holiday season is the Smart Stages Train. This motorized train encourages crawling and it features three rattling characters—Puppy, Monkey and Froggy. The smokestack lights up and plays learning songs and five buttons introduce baby to colours, numbers and more. Available at Walmart | $44.99 | Ages 6-36 months

If I Were An Owl & If I Were A Penguin Books

Babies learn about the world around them by touching, feeling and exploring making touch and feel board books make the perfect gift. These two by Jellycat are adorable, full of bright, beautiful illustrations and fun textures for your little one to explore. Available at Indigo | $12.50 each | Suitable from birth

Gap’s Holiday Stripes

Our picks are the Happy Rainbow and the Holiday Stripe Sweater One-Pieces and of course the Holiday Stripe Brannan Teddy Bear. Available at Baby Gap | $24.95-$39.95 | Age 0-24 months

Elemenosqueeze Blocks

These soft and squeezable blocks each feature a letter of the alphabet and an animal to match. They are safe for baby to chew on (BPA free) and they can even join baby in the tub. Best part is that the toy can grow with your kids: the blocks start off a simple play things but become building blocks as your child gets older. Available at Mastermind | $27.99 | Ages 6 to 36 months


While this gift might be a bit more for mom than baby, they will both appreciate it. The Gro-hush is a portable white noise baby calmer that transmits a soothing white noise directly to your baby.

There are three soothing white noise sounds to choose from and they are all set at a safe volume. Available at | $49.99 | Suitable from birth

Treetop Activity Gym

The cute factor of this activity gym cannot be under estimated: adorable woodland creatures, gender neutral colours and a charming forest scene on the mat on itself. We wouldn’t mind having this one in our living room! A mirror and built-in sounds and textures on the mat add to the fun. Available at | $91.99 | Suitable from birth

Etsy is always a great resource for unique and interesting gifts for everyone on your list. And their baby section is no different.
