Fun + Useful Christmas Gift Ideas by Age for Babies + Toddlers

Buying Christmas gifts for babies and toddlers can be a bit tricky. They are growing and learning so fast, you will want to give them useful toys that will encourage them to explore! These Christmas gift ideas are categorized by age. So, you will find something for every baby and toddler on your list!

I think it’s so important to be thoughtful when giving a gift. Thinking about the child’s age and interests is a huge part of what will help you to choose something they will love.

Since my girls have so many people buying them gifts, my husband and I only buy them a few each. So it’s important that it’s something they will not only love, but will be useful too.

This is my Christmas Gift Giving Guide I follow for my children:

Something they Want…

Need…

Faith Based…

Educational…

A few gifts from Santa

With that in mind, I’ve compiled Christmas gift ideas for each age group that follow these “rules.”
