Christmas gifts for babies are really more gifts for the parents since infants don’t really care what is in the boxes under the tree. They just want to rip open the paper.
But if you want to give babies some Christmas gifts that their parents will be thrilled about, here are some of the best gifts to give to babies and their parents.
Essential Clothing Items
Giving babies fancy holiday clothes is a nice gesture but let’s face it – they will outgrow those pretty clothes in a month. If you want to give babies clothing for Christmas the best things that you can give them are essential clothing items that parents can never have too many of.
Onesies are something that every baby needs and can never have too many of. Baby bibs and dribble bibs are also gifts that parents will always welcome for their babies (for fun, personalized options visit: https://funkygiraffebibs.co.uk/). Warm socks and booties and caps are essential items that any parent would be glad to receive. Make sure that if you’re giving babies Christmas gifts of clothing you get clothes in a range of sizes so that as the baby grows they can wear them.
It might not seem like the fanciest Christmas gift but no parent would ever turn down another pack of diapers. Until the child is potty-trained, parents will be thrilled to get diapers. Just like with clothing you should give diaper packs in a couple of sizes. Adding a pack of diapers to any gift that you’re giving to a baby is a fantastic idea. So, if you want to give a baby a fancy gift like a piece of memorial jewellery or a gorgeous holiday outfit throw in a pack of diapers, too, and the parents will be happy.
Holiday classics and other books that are appropriate for kids are great Christmas gifts for babies. Parents can read them to the kids as they grow, and eventually, the kids will be able to read them on their own. Write an inscription and the date on the flyleaf to make the gift a little more personal. You can even give special boxed sets of childhood favourites like Peter Rabbit or Winnie the Pooh if you want to give a gift that can become a treasured childhood keepsake.
Most parents don’t really need any more toys for their kids. If fact, some parents don’t like it when people give their kids toys because their children are accumulating a lot of toys they never use. Child-friendly art supplies for babies and toddlers, however, are usually welcomed by parents. Art supplies can get expensive and they eventually dry out or are used up and need to be replaced. Look for non-toxic art supplies that are made for young children. Many are designed to not stain or otherwise make a mess on furniture, clothing, or carpets. You may even get gifted some lovely artwork in return, so it’s really a gift for you, too.
If you’re really unsure of what Christmas gifts to get for a baby, just ask the parents. They’d rather have you ask and get something that the child could use rather than have you waste time and money on a gift that they don’t really need.

The important thing to remember is that babygrows and other clothing are not presents for babies – they are for the parents. The baby would much rather have a toy or a picture book
