5 Classic Gifts Your Baby Will Love This Holiday

By Keiko Zoll, DisneyBaby.com

It's hard to imagine that your baby will remember his or her first holidays, or even their first few winter holidays, for that matter! But that doesn't mean they should miss out on all the fun of holiday presents and gift-giving.

Here are five classic gift ideas that any baby or toddler will adore this winter holiday season!

1. Plastic Blocks
While wooden blocks evoke a timeless image of childhood fun, I advocate for soft plastic or silicone blocks for little hands. They're easy to rinse off in case of the accidental spilled juice or milk, and if they're scattered all over the playroom floor, they'll hurt a lot less if you step on them! Blocks are such a fantastic developmental toy for babies and toddlers of any age, getting them to work on fine motor skills and concepts like stacking, sorting, and even counting.

2. Board Books
Reading is so important, even to the littlest, tiniest baby! Board books are especially resilient to tiny, curious hands. They're also small enough to fit in a stocking - or more importantly, a purse or diaper bag for quick engaging play on the go!

3. Stuffed Toy or Animal
Just like a security blanket, every child has a favorite stuffed toy. It might be their favorite character or perhaps a teddy bear that's been passed down for generations. Whatever it is, just make sure it's age appropriate. And here's a special tip: assuming it's not handmade, buy two, just in case one gets left at the zoo or the park by accident!

4. Security Blanket
Whether you call it a blankie, a minkey, a silkie, a lovey or something else entirely, there's nothing more iconic that a little baby carrying around their favorite blanket! Choose something soft and durable, because you know your little one will be taking it with them everywhere.

5. Musical Instruments
Don't worry - you don't have to go out an buy a grand piano for your baby! But something as simple as a rattle or drum is perfect for the littlest babies during the holidays. Older babies and toddlers will appreciate instruments like tambourines and xylophones. Music is a great way to teach vocabulary (think song lyrics) and basic counting and math skills through rhythm. And what little one doesn't love banging on a drum or keyboard?
