Every year, it feels like this time of year sneaks up on us quick. With less than 2 months until Christmas, I wanted to start sharing my Holiday gift guides with everyone in case you’re already starting your Christmas shopping. So, today I am sharing my very first gift guide, which is a HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR BABIES 6-12 MONTHS. It can be difficult to shop for babies sometimes, because well, they don’t really need a whole lot and can easily be entertained with a cardboard box, or laundry basket. I always like to gift toys that will help with development, fine motor skills, and toys they will also find entertaining and enjoyable. I included a few that we have and continue to love, as well as a few new gift ideas that I am planning on getting for Bonnie this year. Most of these, if not all, are under $100!
I am including all over last year’s gift guides down below if you are looking to get ahead, or are needing more gift ideas! 🙂

1 // Musical Llama
This musical llama is adorable and has been a huge hit in our home for a few years. I got it for Lucy a few years back, and I’m sure Bonnie will get a great use out of it soon! It has multiple musical options like a xylophone, maraca and more. Its great for fine motor skills and is a great activity toy that will keep your baby entertained.
2 // Skwish Color Burst
This soft, squishy toy is a great toy to help with babies sensory and motor skills. It rattles when shaken, and it is made from sustainable materials, and is non toxic.
3 // Jolly Jumper
If you’re looking for a jumper, this one has amazon reviews. It comes with a sturdy, stable stand so you can feel at ease knowing your baby is safe and having fun.
4 // Elmo Rattle
Rattles are always a great gift for babies, you cannot go wrong with them. This is one of Bonnie’s favorites, and we love it because it is great for tummy time, and it is easy to grasp and hold for your little babes.
5 // Peek-A-Boo Bear
This cute wooden peek-a-boo bear is perfect for babies. It is easy to grasp, and it makes a fun “clack” noise when you put the bears paws on his face. I plan to get this one for bonnie this year!
6 // Turtle Ball Pit
I hear ball pits are a huge hit for babies! I am planning on getting this turtle ball pit for bonnie, I love how cute and fun it is and think she will love this. It includes 60 soft balls and is safe on all floor surfaces.
This cube is so fun, and filled with different learning activities, textures, sounds, and more! It’s SO great for all the skills that babies are developing at this age, and it’s also very fun and entertaining for them.
If you’re looking for a gift idea that isn’t a toy, this personalized name blanket is the perfect gift. I love how soft and cozy it is, and also really love that this is a gift they will keep with them for years as they grow older.
This toy is so neat, because it serves so many purposes, and your baby gets different uses out of it. You can pull it, shake, twist, and use it as a teether too.
10 // Innybin
Another favorite gift idea that I will be getting for bonnie this year! With six chunky shaped blocks (included) they can push the shapes into the cube through the elastic bands which encourages fine motor skills, and exploration. The shapes have different textures that they will enjoy too.
We have and love this mushroom teething toy! Bonnie uses it all the time, under our supervision of course, and she absolutely loves it. It’s very easy for little ones to grab with their tiny hands, and chew on.
12 // Activity Learning Cube
This activity cube will be a huge hit, and a great gift idea for Christmas! It features a xylophone, counting beads, spinning gears, flip board filled with animals and shapes, a siding tree, and a wire bead maze on top. You can count on this to help keep your baby entertained!
13 // First Shapes Board Book
These Poke-A-Dot Board books have been our favorites for years now, since Edison was little! This is one of the many that we have, and we love it because they have buttons your can poke on every page that make different sounds that the kids love. They’re very inexpensive and make a great gift.
14 // Squigz
We got these squigz a while back, and the kids have always loved playing with them. They connect and stick to each other, so you can build, and get as creative with them as you want. This toy is a great gift idea that will grow with your kids as they get older, and they will continue to love.
15 // Whirly Squigz
These whirly squigz are SO fun! You can stick each one to any surface, and watch your baby spin them. They’re also great and safe to use as a teething toy. I also plan to get these for Bonnie.
16 // Baby Einstein Books
These are another great gift option for babies. They can explore, while learning all about numbers, shapes, colors, and more!
17 // Lion Push Along Toy
Push along toys are a great gift idea for babies. At this age, they’re learning to stand up, cruise along, while gaining strength on their legs. It’s also a great toy that they will use for the next few years as well.
