Depending on their age during their first holiday season, many infants may not have an understanding of what is going on. Therefore, giving a Christmas present that will help the baby’s parents to care for him or her is a great idea. These holiday gift ideas help parents to entertain their baby, keep the baby clothed or can be keepsakes to preserve memories of infancy and childhood.
One thing to remember is to avoid basic infant care items, except for clothes, unless the parent has expressly asked for them. It is likely that most parents received strollers, high chairs, baby carriers and other newborn items for gifts before or right after the baby was born.
Christmas Presents for Babies that Entertain
Parents need toys for their baby that will keep them happy and keep their attention. Here are a few ideas to consider.

Activity Tables. Ages: 6 months and up. Approximate retail price: $30 and up. Many are adjustable, allowing a younger baby to sit and play or an older baby to stand. The table top features a variety of buttons to push, knobs to turn and even music.
Holiday Gifts to Keep Baby Clothed and Warm
Babies grow out of clothes quickly. Give their parents adorable holiday inspired clothes and winter hats to boost their wardrobe.
Holiday Themed Sleepers. Approximate retail price: $10 and up. These one piece pajamas with attached feet often say “Baby’s First Christmas” or other cute seasonal phrases.
Warm Hats for Winter. Approximate retail price: $10 and up. Parents love to see their babies in adorable hats. Whether they are knitted or fleece, have pom-poms or ear flaps, there are thousands of choices for baby hats.
Keepsake Christmas Gifts to Preserve Memories of Infancy and Childhood
Parents want to remember every moment as their babies grow. Help them do this with these gifts.
Hand Print Keepsake Kits. Approximate retail price: $15. These kits come with non-toxic plaster which parents can use to forever preserve their babies hand or footprints. Many also come with materials to decorate and hang the memory once it is finished.
