10 of the Best Holiday Gift Ideas for Babies and Newborns

If you’re celebrating your baby’s first holiday season, you’ll want to make it magical. But let’s be honest: shopping for babies can be a challenge. They really don’t need much, aside from the essentials you probably already have. 

If you’re asking yourself, “What do you get a baby for their first Christmas?” we’ve got you covered! Whether you’re shopping for your own baby or another sweet little one who’s dear to you, make sure your list includes these holiday gift ideas for babies 0-3 months that will make the experience merry and bright.

1. A special lovey

One of our favorite baby gift ideas for boys and girls is a sweet, snuggly lovey! The holiday loveys collection from Itzy Ritzy Itzy are sure to become an instant BFF for your little one! Itzy Ritzy Holiday Lovey, Jolly the Reindeer is crafted with a soft sherpa fabric and features textured ribbons that babies will love to explore! The arms include a crinkly fabric that’s sure to keep the baby entertained with the gentle sound it produces. A textured snowflake teether is attached to help massage and soothe sore gums.


2. A handy teether

When it comes to finding good gift ideas for baby, think about where they are developmentally. Many are in the midst of or about to start teething. Sore gums are no match for the Itzy Ritzy Teething Mitt! Itzy Ritzy teething mitts are safe on baby’s gums, and the glove design keeps the baby from getting scratches on their face. It's also ideal for babies who can’t yet hold a teether. These teething mitts feature a crinkle sound to keep your baby occupied and are made of textured food-grade silicone to help massage sore gums and provide relief to emerging teeth. The texture also helps your baby discover and explore new senses. 


3. A warm minky pram

Nestle baby quickly and quietly in the Magnetic Me Drizzle with Ditzy Star Lining Minky Magnetic Pram with amazing magnetic closures that make dressing convenient and easy. It's made of an ultra-warm, minky fleece shell and completely lined with organic cotton that's soft and gentle on baby's skin. It’s also roomy enough to add layers underneath, which makes it a pram that will last you from fall to spring—whether on snowy walks or chilly playground playdates.


4. A personal gym

Babies have lots of developmental milestones in the first year. So give them a gift that helps them grow! The TINY LOVE Magical Tales Black and White Gymini is a stylish activity gym, designed especially to support newborn development. With 18 developmental activities and interactive toys, it encourages a baby’s skills as they naturally play. Its contrasting black and white details provide visual stimulation for newborns. The adjustable arches are easy to arrange in a variety of ways or remove to enhance your baby’s developmental environment for tummy time. Your little one will love exploring the shapes on the soft black and white book or marveling at their own reflection in the mirror. The spacious and cozy play area lets babies stretch and experiment with movement and rolling over. 


5. Soothing pacifiers

Help soothe your sweetie in style with these adorable Itzy Ritzy Orthodontic Sweetie Soother Orthodontic Pacifiers! Their one-piece design is made of durable, latex-free silicone and each pacifier features a precious accent on the handle to coordinate with baby's outfits. Available in a two-pack, these pacifiers are ideal for babies 0 months and up, free of PVC and BPA, and dishwasher-safe.


6. A cozy holiday outfit

A great onesie is another of our favorite baby gift ideas for girls and boys! This parent-favorite footie is an everyday (and night) essential with magnetic closures that make dressing easy. The Magnetic Me Merry And Bright Magnetic Footie magnets are quick, quiet, and a lifesaver for middle-of-the-night changes. Eco-friendly TENCEL™ modal is silky soft, breathable, and gentle on sensitive skin. The fabric’s temperature-regulating properties will keep your little one warm in winter, cool in summer, and oh-so-comfortable year round.


7. Sleep-inducing white noise

The Tonies Nap Time White Noise Audio Play Figurine plays two hours of soothing white noise, providing an ambient environment that helps your child fall asleep faster and stay asleep longer. Use it with the amazing Toniebox system. Individual hand-painted collectible figurines like this one magnetically attach to the Toniebox, an amazing music and storybook player that makes it simple and safe for little listeners to listen to what they want. Tonies are the perfect holiday gift to grow with your baby in the years to come!


8. A snuggly friend

The Mary Meyer Putty Nursery Soft Stuffed Toy, Kringles Reindeer, is an 11" tall plush toy with a simple and understated design, featuring a stitched-on striped scarf that matches Putty Pinstripes. This sweet toy is made from luxurious, textured fabric in muted colors, creating a sophisticated color palette. The etched super-luxe fabric and beans in the bum add a luscious feel to the touch. With durable plastic eyes securely sonic welded in place, this toy surpasses all required safety standards for ages zero and up. Perfect for holiday decorating, it’s not only adorable but also easy to clean as it’s machine washable!


9. Crib entertainment

Give your newborn an interesting toy to keep themselves soothed and entertained! The Little Big Friends Activity Spiral will amuse babies when in bed, in a stroller, or in a car seat. It will trigger babies’ curiosity with its three playful hanging toys: a toucan maracas, a tropical leaf teether toy, and a sun mirror!


10. A cozy blanket

This cozy blanket is silky soft and keeps your little one cozy as they get bigger. The Tuwi Wave Knitted Baby Blanket has baby alpaca fiber and is hypoallergenic, perfect for those with sensitive skin. The material is lightweight, and the weave lends an extra stretch to the blanket. It also traps air, so it’s breathable in hot weather and warm when it’s chilly. The softness of baby alpaca fiber feels almost like cashmere, but it’s more eco-friendly and sustainable. Choose from natural grey or cream palettes, both with endless subtle tonal variations reflecting the qualities of the sea and sky.
