Baby gift guide from birth to six months

With a baby on the way (any day now!) and the holidays approaching quickly, I want to share some of the items, or the types of items that we look for in gifts for babies. 

When it comes the types of items we purchase for our children, my husband and I are really rather picky. We tend to go for fewer gifts and items in favour of good quality objects that will be durable. The toys we love the most tend to also be fairly simple, and provide for open ended play. 

We love using searching for asthetically pleasing objects that are made from natural materials. In fact, my husband even makes a lot of our wooden materials himself! Of course, there isn't enough time to make all of our children's toys, but there are plenty of wonderful materials already out there!

Gifts for babies



When it comes to choosing gifts for babies, here are a few things we look for: 

  • Safety! 
  • Good, durbale quality 
  • Natural materials 
  • Able to be manipulated and used by the baby
  • Provides for open ended play 
  • Does not require batteries 
  • Does not play music, flash lights, or provide sensory over stimulation for baby (or parents!)
  • The toys serve a purpose or strengthen a skill or muscle 

Here are specific baby gift ideas!
