Best Gifts for Your Little Ones (By Age)

The holidays have arrived and you’re starting to make your shopping list. For the little ones in your family, the gift options are endless.

Rather than get something from the store last minute to throw under the tree, let 2020 be the year you get the kids in your life gifts they’ll enjoy for years to come.

We’ve compiled the best gifts for kids of any age, so you don’t have to worry about what to get them, and can just enjoy the happiness they bring.

Gifts for Babies

Babies are in the earliest stage of development. They are just starting to explore the world around them through their senses and interactions. For babies, the simplest gifts are often the best.

Get Them Using Their Senses

Stuffed animals are always a favorite for babies. They allow them to use the sense of touch and provide comfort as they’re getting used to the crib. Stuffed animals can also be an opportunity to interact with your baby as they’re learning their first words.

Have they just learned how to say “dog”? Get them a stuffed dog to keep them learning and playing!

Keep Your Little One’s Learning

On the topic of learning, babies are infinitely curious about the world around them. To keep them from pulling the tablecloth off the kitchen table, get them something they can figure out safely.

Avoid toys with too many complicated buttons and opt for something easy that they can chew on, toss, or shake around during playtime.

It could be as simple as a rattle, or as interactive as a playmat to make their stationary months a world of fun.

Gifts for Young Kids

Now that your kid is walking and talking, take advantage of playtime to make memories that will last a lifetime.

Get Involved in Play

Young kids have a lot to learn, and they’re just starting to figure out what their interests are. For the kids curiously watching as dinner is prepared, get them a kitchen set and they’ll be serving up their own creations to everyone in the family.

Find those sparks of interest in your little ones and let them shine with a gift that lets them express themselves and connect with everyone around them.

Play Pretend

While kids love to be a part of everyday life, help foster their imagination with a gift that lets them play pretend. Kids love to play dress-up every day of the year, not just on Halloween. If they love the Star Wars movies, they can use the force in the living room with Kylo Ren’s Lightsaber.

Whatever character they love, now is the time when they can be anything they want.
