Age guidelines are exactly that: guidelines. God made all children different and they all develop at different rates.
Just the other day I had a friend ask me what kinds of things she should get someone who is expecting.
There are so so many baby things out there, and even more opinions on those things.
It is hard to dig through all of the junk to find trusted, quality products.
Because of this, I decided to compile this Infant Gift Guide to help others find the best gift for any infant.
This Infant Gift Guide includes toys and fun stuff, as well as practical gifts that mom and dad will most definitely appreciate.
Let’s start with the fun stuff!
For just the product links click here.
This toy is from a trusted and award-winning company and the design makes it easy to grip for all ages. The materials, colors, and sounds give baby an engaging, sensory experience!
This push toy is so much fun! As little one pushes, the alligators chomp away! Very entertaining and very good for teaching cause and effect.
Ages 12m+ Unless of course, you have an early walker like I highly expect to have soon… I am so not ready for my son to be fully mobile.
The Infantino Big Top Discovery Cube is one of my favorite toys in this infant gift guide. Baby’s tend to have short attention spans and love to discover new things. This toy will keep them exploring and keep them surprised.
Do not be fooled, this is no regular stuffed animal! This soft elephant can sing songs, talk and play peek-a-boo! Also available in Flora the Bunny.
I was a long-time lover of the Fisher-Price play mats, until I found this gem! Don’t get me wrong, those play mats are great, but this one by Infantino is so much more than your typical play mat. This is a 3-in-1 tool for happy baby play! This toy is perfect because it grows with baby. We loved out play mats, but my son soon grew out of them. With this the baby fun can truly last, making it a smart investment.

One word: Hilarious. A great infant gift is one that can get everyone smiling. You will not disappoint with this dumbbell baby rattle. Make sure you count the little one’s reps! ?
Melissa & Doug have some of my favorite toys for infants. Simple yet fun and engaging! This set comes with 4 pull-back cars and a carrying case! I think that typically if it comes with a carrying case, it makes a great gift! Gift and storage all in one. Mom and Dad will appreciate it, trust me.
What are two things babies love to do?
1. Grab people (especially mama) and 2. Chew on things.
This product covers both. Safe and easy to clean, this teething necklace is great for all occasions!
These little cups have a whopping 4.8/5 Stars on Amazon! Nearly 2,000 5 star reviews! This simple toy gives an infant the ability to create and explore. They even have numbers on the bottom, so they can be used for years to come.
Balls, Blocks and Buddies! All perfect for hand-eye-coordination and bath time! These toys can be used anywhere and are a dream to clean. (Do other people not get excited about the ease of toy cleaning? Just me? Okay.)
I am obsessed with this little car activity center! This is a truly interactive toy with a clicking steering wheel, lights on the dashboard, and a key to go into the ignition. All of that plus the classic car sounds, it’s a tiny-tot’s dream.
It is so important to read to children from a young age.
Reading increases bonding, improves language skills, and even encourages little ones to interact socially.
Reading is a huge part of my family’s life.
We LOVE books.
A book for baby is and should always be a welcomed gift.
Many books are specially tailored for the little of the littles.
Board books and cloth books, for example, are durable.
Babies may be small, but they are mighty in strength and especially in drool.
This next part of the ultimate infant gift guide displays my favorite board books, interactive books, and touch-and-feel books!
Often when buying gifts for infants the more useful and practical are overlooked.
We need to change this!
Baby’s have a lot of stuff, and as much as we all love the fun stuff, the “real real life” stuff is important too!
This last section of my infant gift guide will go over the less glamorous, but extremely appreciated gifts you can give a baby this year.
Start baby off with good oral hygiene habits! This three-sided toothbrush will clean all sides of a little’s teeth at once! Dental hygiene is so important. Help the infant in your life start off right!
Like I said, these gifts may not be flashy, but this one, in particular, is so helpful! We have been using this stuff on my son since the beginning. He has NEVER had a real bout of diaper rash! At the first sign of irritation we apply, and in an hour or two, it is gone. Completely sear by this stuff. It also comes in a natural version!
Some of the best advice Andrew and I got when we became parents is to “not blink”. This comes from one of the best movies of all time: Cheaper By The Dozen. Help baby’s family to not miss a thing with these milestone blocks!
Infants have so much stuff! It is crazy how such a tiny little human needs so very much! Help mom and dad stay sane with this backseat organizer. It also comes with a Baby-In-Car sign which is very important for safety! Win-win.
This product is the epitome of how technology can be amazing. This is a sound machine and nightlight that is completely controlled by via a phone! It can be used for years, especially helpful for letting older children know when it is okay to get up!
What a great deal! Diaper caddies are great! Making a changing station truly portable, where it be around the house or on the go is a blessing. It comes with 2 bibs and 2 Pacifier clips as well! Bonus!
Baby books are great for recording memories, milestones, and the little things. This book blows all other baby books out of the water! This book is gorgeous and keeps track of the first 5 years.
Infants make messes. Extra-large burp cloths are a must! Until you have a baby you may underestimate the mess size a little one is capable of. Extra-large burp cloths seem like a strange gift, but their trendy prints make it a great choice! (And a needed item!)
Humidifiers are a fantastic gift for infants! Keeping baby skin and airways moist is a must, especially in the colder months. This high-tech humidifier can detect the humidity in the air around it. Tons of features and easy to clean, this is by far my favorite humidifier.
Don’t overlook this little thermos. Parents can and will find 1001 things to use this for. This thermos is of the highest quality and is the perfect size for travel.
Last, but of course not least:
These bibs are absorbent, colorful and have 3 sizing options. Everything needed for good baby bibs!
