Holiday Gifts For The Baby In Your Life

A gift guide for your baby this holiday season, from newborn all the way up to two

Baby’s first Christmas is an exciting time—creating new holiday traditions and planning presents for the newest member of the family. Since they’re too young to ask for what they want yet, we’ve handpicked a selection of gifts to excite, engage and educate young minds long after December has been and gone.  

Fold ‘N Go Elephant

Because a trip to the park can sometimes feel like you’re packing enough items for a Mini-break, Playskool have come to the rescue. Combining loads of baby-friendly features in one—a rattle, a squeaker, a mirror and a crinkly ear—this soft elephant is great for sensory play. It folds up compactly to fit in the diaper bag, and comes in blue and pink. (3 months and up, available at walmart.ca, $24.99)

Cabin Cozy Bath Robe

We love this adorable classic plaid, sherpa lined bathrobe to keep baby warm and cozy during those winter bath times. A practical, yet completely cute gift for any baby. (available at indigo.ca, $32.50)

Bath Time Elmo Plush

Sometimes bath time with baby can be an adventure but if you prefer to keep dry from the sidelines, leave Elmo to the splishing and splashing. Dressed in swim trunks and flippers, our favourite Sesame Street character is ready to jump in the tub and keep little ones amused—and distracted so you can shampoo! (18 months and up, available at toysrus.ca, $16.99)

My Little Pony Musical Celebration Castle

This is one cliché that rings pretty true—little girls love ponies and castles. In fact, moms are fond of them too! So what better present to open on December 25, than this castle play set? Take Pinkie Pie and Starsong up in the elevator and back down the slide, to hit the dance floor. And if it all gets too much for them, they can have a nap on the bed downstairs to the sound of lullaby music. (18 months and up, available at toysrus.ca, $26.97)

Snowman zipped footed one-piece

Christmas onesies are not just a gift for adults. This year, make sure your baby reclaims the one-piece, with this festive snowman design, available for newborns, all the way up to 9 months. The long sleeved soft knit and attached feet will make sure your little ones are kept snug, while the full zip will ensure mom and dad’s sanity when dressing and changing diapers this holiday. (0-9 months, available at gap.ca $24.95)

Go! Go! Smart Wheels- Ultimate RC Speedway 

Ralph and his racecar will be a huge hit with all your family this Christmas—just remember to let the kids have a turn! The track is easy to put together so there are no instruction manual nightmares, and with no little pieces to make a mess this is a great gift that everyone will love. The remote control gives an interactive experience for kids playing, and with just a reverse and forward button little hands will feel comfortable and in control. The stump ramp, elevator, starting flags and track switches will keep them entertained all holiday long. (1 and up, available at indigo.ca, $69.95)

Micro Mini 2 Go

Buy your daughter her first (and second) set of wheels this Christmas. With a height adjustable handlebar, seat and removable drawer, this is the gift that just keeps on giving. Stow nappies, snacks or any other knick-knacks you can think of in the storage compartment while you’re out for a ride—simply lean forward to steer. Then, when they’ve outgrown the seat it can be removed for the Mini Micro experience. (1 and up, available at indigo.ca, $174.95)

Stack ‘N Stow Cups

If you need something quick to entertain baby for short periods of time these stacking cups are ideal. Brightly coloured, they’re perfect for little hands, and great for learning hand-eye coordination. When you need to pack up simply collect the cups, lock the lion base and throw into a diaper bag or purse. His little tail also doubles as a hook so you can hang him onto a bag strap if you’re in a dash. (9 months and up, available from Hasbro.ca, $7.99)

Z is for Zamboni

This beautiful book will be a firm favourite with the littlest hockey fan in your household (and maybe some of the older ones too). With funny and poetic rhymes as well as tender illustrations, this is a great way to teach your baby their alphabet and teach them about the national sport of Canada. We’re confident this will become a bedtime staple long after they can say their A-Zzzzz. (0-2, available at indigo.ca, $7.57)

Little Tikes Lil’ Ocean Explorers 3 in 1 Adventure Course

We all know Christmas can be pricey, so if you want to get your money’s worth this could be the gift for you. Spanning three stages of a baby and toddler’s development, this will stimulate and excite your kid for years to come. There are rattles and spinners for baby, a canopy to crawl through, and an octopus play station. Not only will they love the bright colours, sounds and games, it teaches motor skills and might even motivate reluctant kids to reach their next milestone. (6-36 months, $99.99) 

Pull and Chatter Lobster

So they’ve taken their first steps…but what about their second and third? If anyone can get them practicing walking it’s this cute lobster, whose claws clack and tail bobs as baby pulls him along on a string. Teaching kids about cause and effect, and creating cute crustacean pals in the process sounds like a win-win to us. (9 months and up, available at toysrus.ca, $9.67)
