GIFT IDEAS FOR BABIES 6-12 MONTHS

 

In honor of my sweet little Lu Bear turning 6 months old today I wanted to share a the best Gifts Ideas for babies that are 6-12 months old!
Honestly thought, I am in major denial that my baby is already 6 months!!! Like WHAT???
And this photo of her, I die!

As part of todays guide: gifts for babies, I shared a big round up of several of the toys and activities I will be wrapping up and giving to Lucy for Christmas this year. Several of these toys were toys I had gotten for Edison when he was around this age and so many of them were great learning toys. Helped with his development and learning as well as thought fine motor skills and grip, walking and so much more.

I know that babies don’t really need much for Christmas, which is why I only bought a few toys to throw under the tree and for “Santa” to bring. I also knew it would be so fun for Edison to help Lucy open her presents this year. I also bought a lot of clothes and pajamas for Lucy since they are something she actually needs! Other great ideas are bowls, spoons, and sippy cups that you will start using more often as they start to eat.

Gift Ideas for Babies

1 // Buffalo Set Pajamas – Growing up we always got pajamas on Christmas from my grandma. I think it is such a fun tradition to pass down to my children. So new pajamas it is!

 

2 // Move and Crawl Ball – This ball is self motorized and designed to roll around to encourage your baby to chase it!

 

3 // Poppy Lane Co. Bracelet – We already have a few of these and I ordered more for Lucy, including a Baltic Amber Bracelet to help with teething. Another fun thing is you can buy adult size bracelets so you can match you mini!

 

4 // Rainforest Jumperoo – Once they are old enough, this is such a fun place to put your baby where you don’t feel too guilty leaving them to get a few things done around the house. They are entertaining theirselves while working on fine motor skills.

 

5 // Skip Hop Interactive Activity Table – We got this table for Lucy to give to her for Christmas. I can’t wait for her to start using it.

 

6 // Sit to Stand Learning Walker – We had one of these for Edison, actually we still do, it just got left out in the rain and the noise no longer works. But it was such a fun activity he used when he was 8-12 months. In fact, he still pulls it out of storage often, at age 3, to run around with it!

 

7 // Key Toy – A great toy you can keep in your diaper bag and pull out when your baby starts to get fussy in the car, or carseat while out an about. It makes noise and jingles.

 

8 // Rainbow Set Pajamas – Another darling set of pajamas for little girls!

 

9 // Banana Teether Toy  – Give us all the teething toys, am I right! This stage is super rough on our babies as they are constantly teething.

 

10 // Dimpl Baby Popper Toy – We just got this for Lucy this year too. She probably won’t get too much use out of it until 9-12 months, but I thought it was a great toy that will keep them entertained for several minutes.

11 // V Tech Baby Phone – Always a classic toy to have. Either a remote or phone. We had both with Edison and he loved the music they play.

 

12 // Developmental Bumpy Ball – Another toy we got for Lucy this year. I love that it looks easy to grasp as she is still learning and getting a tighter grip on things.

 

13 // Sesame Street Mini Board Books – These are the funnest books. We a set super similar to this, they are perfect for their little hands and great for when they first learn to talk.

 

14 // Windup Penguin Bath Toy – Great for all ages. Edison who is 3 still loves this. But a baby 6-12 months will love watching you wind it up and see it swimming in the water.

 

15 // Baby Walker and Activity Tray – I love this toy, and love when they finally figure it out! It is so hilarious. At first they don’t even realize it’s them making it move. Once they figure it out, watch out!!

 

16 // Ring Stacker – Such a great fine motor and developmental toy.

 

17 // Activity Cube – I want to get this for Lucy. I love that there is so much activity it one cube. Great sitting activity.

 

18 // Tubby Todd Lotion and Shampoo – Our very favorite shampoo and conditioner brands.

 

19 // Freshly Picked Moccasins – So many adorable options to choose from. Great for boys and girls and they make for the best walking shoe!

 

20 // Winkle Rattle Toy – Got this for Lucy too for Christmas. It was rated really well on Amazon, and I thought I would give it a try. I can’t wait to give it to her.

MOM TALK MONDAY: TOYS FOR 2 YEAR OLDS

Happy Monday!
I can’t believe I am already sharing about great toys for two year olds. It felt like just yesterday I shared a gift guide for great toys for 1 year olds. You can see that post here!

The best toys for two year olds. Camilla of Navy Grace shares what toys she loves and shares with her soon to be two year old toddler!
Edison will be two so soon and it got me thinking and planning ahead as to what I should gift him this year. His birthday and Christmas are only 1 month apart so I like to plan out my top toy choices I feel like will help him develop skills as well as ones he would love. I do this that way I can divide the toys up between the two occasions and not go all out for both of them. Because let’s just say we did that for his first birthday and the following Christmas.

Each day while playing with Edison, I always try to mix things up with different kind of plays, we play with trains, cars, then move to reading, coloring, playing outside, then of course let Edison play on his own with which results in cars or trains again. We then always try to do a developmental activity with a puzzle or blocks, something to help with this hand eye coordination. Of course, not everyday is this perfect. But I do try to mix our days up!

Even if you don’t have any toddlers, I hope you find this post helpful as a gift guide!

CREATIVE + ACTIVE TOYS

DEVELOPMENTAL TOYS

CREATIVE + ACTIVE TOYS

1 .  Play Doh  – A child must. Edison plays with Play Doh and of course although more skills will come with age, it is still fun for him to feel and pull apart

2 . Farm Play set  – I have been wanting to get Edison a farm set, since he now is so familiar with farm animal noises, having them as toys is a great way for him to learn the animals names and noises.

3. Water Wow Coloring – We have been using these since 1 year old. They are so great, and fun. I even catch myself amused by it.

4. Animal Toy Figures  – I think I need to order these again. We had these and somehow have misplaced them. But a older boy the other day at church handed Edison a few small animal toy figures and he was having so much fun.

5. Foam Swords – Having battles with your toddler is honestly so much fun and harmless.

6. Rocker – A classic toy every kid needs

7. Backpack – This is a new favorite for Edison and I can only see him growing to love it more as he ages. But what kid doesn’t.

8. Sports Balls – It’s either a car or a ball in Edison’s hand at all times. Such a boy toy!

9. Broom and Dust Toys – Edison has started to show so much interest in helping me out around the house and I think he needs his own broom and dust set!

10. Food Toys – To go along with the Kitchen Play Set

11. Hero Cape – Such a good activity for both boys and girls. Watching them run down around the house in a cape is the cutest thing

12. Mess Free Coloring Books – Edison goes to our cupboard on a daily basis and brings out this coloring book and markers to color. He loves them!

13. Kitchen Play Set – We have a perfect space in our breakfast nook that I have planned on putting a kitchen play set. Every kid needs one of these.

14. Small Train Track Set – You all know how much of a hit the train is at our house. This was the first train track we got and it is a good one for starters.

15. Large Train Track –  We upgraded to a larger train track, we actually combined the two tracks together for of course, more fun!!

16. Thomas the Train – No words needed!!! This train is still one of Edison’s favorites and I am sure will continue to be a top toy for quite some time.

17. Lightening McQueen Car – I find it funny how naturally boys gravitate toward cars. This one is Edison’s top choice of the moment.

18. Train Table – This is one toy I keep debating on getting Edison. But this is one I really hope to get for his 2nd birthday. Since he loves trains so much, this would keep him so entertained for a long time!!!

19. Tall Car Race Track – Edison plays with one of these at church, and it keeps him entertained for so long. Fun for multiple kids to do together.

20. Race Car Track – Thinking this is a great alternative since it is more affordable.

21. Smart Stages Blue Car – We got this for Edison last Christmas. He was 13 months and still loves using and playing in it!

22. Hot Wheels Cars – A boy and his cars!! Edison get’s so excited when he see’s that his dad brought him home a new hot wheels car!

23. Tool Set – Since having trains, we are constantly changing out batteries. As a result Edison see’s us using a screwdriver and will go find them in the drawer to “change” the batteries. It is the cutest thing. So I think him having his own tool set is what he needs.

24. Dump Truck Toy –  We have a few dump trucks and they are always being played with.

OUTDOOR TOYS

1 . Strider Balance Bike – We have this, and it is such a fun outdoor activity to do. Great training bike before a peddle bike

2. Scooter – These tree wheeled scooters seem like so much fun. A friend of mine has convinced me we need one for Edison. Her little boy learned how to scoot before walking!!!

3. Basketball Hoop – We got this for Edison and is so much fun. We keep it outside on our porch great for hand eye coordination skills.

4. Ride On Powered Car – We have two of these. So fun for when friends come over.

5. Water Table – Such a great activity for Spring and Summer

6. Slide – I think Edison would love this!!

7. PlasmaCar – This ride on toy is always highly suggested to me. Great for kids of all ages.

[show_shopthepost_widget id=”3292883″]


DEVELOPMENTAL TOYS

1 . Shape Puzzle – One of the activities I do daily to help Edison with his developmental skills.

2. Building Blocks – Great for 1 year olds and up. I think these are a good toy to keep around for your kids as they can continue to grow with them.

3. Magformers Magnetic Building – I don’t have these for Edison, but have heard great things about them.

4. Vehicle Puzzle – Another fun puzzle

5. Shape Sorter – We do this activity often too! I first started by letting Edison put all the shapes in the top where all shapes fit. Now, I help guide him to the color and he put it in himself. Soon enough he will be able to do it solo.
