Christmas gift guide: gifts for babies

Unlike older kids, babies aren't usually able to tell you what they want or need for Christmas so this can make them a bit of struggle to buy for. If you want to buy them something they will love as well as their parents you have to the right place. We have broken down some of the top gifts for babies and where you can get them.

Playtime

Their inquisitive little minds will have them rolling and playing around in no time, so a gift for playtime will be a gift that is loved.

Play mat: As they grow older the more they are going to want to play, so get them started with their very own play mat.

Sophie The Giraffe: This teething toy will become the baby’s parents favourite toy as their littles ones teeth start to come through.

Plush toys: You might just gift them their favourite teddy or toy that they will treasure for years to come. You can’t go too wrong with a toy, so shop the range at Toy Mate.

Bed and bath

All babies sleep, and all babies have baths, so if you are choosing your gift from this category you have already aced the gift giving.

Soaps: This one is pretty much a staple, so it will be hard for this gift not to impress the parents. They will know that you put thought into getting a gift that they will use as well.

Baby mobile for crib: The parents of most babies will be forever thankful if you gift a present that could potentially mean more sleep from them. Baby mobiles can work a treat when it comes to getting little ones to sleep.

Clothing and accessories

If you already have a little fashionista or tend setter on your hands, then look no further than an adorable outfit with matching shoes, trust us! And you will have a bit of fun choosing with all of the different (and cute!) ranges available.

Clothes: Although they may have lots of clothes now, chances are they will probably grow out of most of them in a few months, so babies (and parents) will never say no to more outfits. Find a great range of kids clothing at Kmart, Target, Best&Less, GY Kids and Blue Skye Kids Land.

Shoes: If they are starting to get inquisitive about this whole walking thing, then a pair of new shoes may be in order.
