Thank you to buybuy BABY for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own. 

It’s that time again! Yes, I just had a baby a week ago but the holiday gift guides still must happen! I had such a great response to them last year. Since we are now buying gifts for children of two different ages and I know so many moms are doing that too I wanted to share a holiday gift guide for babies and toddlers. So down below you will find one for each. Our favorite place to shop for Holiday gifts is buybuy BABY. We registered there for both babies and shop there for their essentials constantly. I feel like so many people realize it’s a great place to register but why stop there? It’s a great place to shop for holiday gifts, birthday gifts, and gifts for friends kids as well.

Holiday Gift Guide: For Babies and Toddlers

For babies 0-1:

I love stacking cups for babies. Liam honestly still uses his all the time and is super into making towers and knocking them down. It’s one toy he has consistently played with since he was a baby. These by green toys are amazing.

You really can’t go wrong with books no matter what the age is. One of the first book sets we got for Charlotte is the Little Feminist Board Book set. Such a cute idea for little girls.

One of the things we put in stockings for Liam his first Christmas was a reindeer wubbanub. This year, of course, Charlotte is getting one too!

There are so many great baby Einstein toys and I love this set. It really has all of the best ones and is such a great idea if you have no idea what to give the little one in your life.

If you are looking for a bigger gift for a younger baby that can grow with them the Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud Activity Center is so fantastic! It Has 3 stages of play and even turns into a little table for when they are older.

When Liam was a baby he was OBSESSED with this water play mat! I can’t wait to bring it out for Charlotte and it’s always a gift I recommend.

This is such a cute teething toy for any baby who has a coffee-loving mama! Liam still finds his and calls it his “Starbucks.”

I can’t express how amazing this sit to stand alphabet train is! Liam got his for Christmas when he was 10 months old. Now at almost 3 he still rides it around the house! I am a big fan of any gift that can be used for a long time. I can’t wait to introduce it to Charlotte.


For Toddlers 2-3:

Liam’s favorite thing to do is take baths and he loves Paw Patrol so of course, we had to snag some Paw Patrol bath squirters.

Liam also loves any kind of look and find book. So to go along with the Paw Patrol loving theme we got him this book too.

Liam’s big gift this year is this train table. We went back and forth for a while but after seeing how much he loves it when we are places they have one we knew we had to get him one.

We have this exact kitchen already but the Kid Kraft play kitchen is an awesome gift for littles! I can’t tell you how many hours Liam plays with his each week.

Once you have the play kitchen you, of course, need all the fun accessories to go along with it. I love anything Melissa and Doug so this set is fantastic for your budding chef.

Liam loves puzzles as most 2 and 3 year olds do and this is such a great transitional set from just the 8-9 piece puzzles.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE Green Toys and have the bus and fire truck already. If you have a kiddo who LOVES cars these are amazing to get them.

This ramp racer was such a hit last year. Liam still plays with it all the time and I think any kiddo would love it.

Another great idea for a bigger gift is a trampoline. We plan to get Liam one next year and this is such an awesome choice with the netting around it.


I hope you see the awesome variety of gifts you can snag for any kiddo at buybuy BABY and see the range they have. I highly suggest checking out your local store or shopping online for your holiday gifts. Also, the customer service just can’t be beat!

What is a gift for a baby or toddler you would suggest?

      Honestly, the only thing I would get out of this list is the wubanub! My son doesn’t know any better or remember anything so my husband and I don’t see a point on really getting him anything specific or special for Christmas or his birthday right after Christmas !

      A kitchen for toddlers is always the best gift. That activity center is super cute too. Love your gift guide, so many practical items. I just shared a gift guide on my blog too I would love for you to take a look at and let me know what you think.

      My grandson is train-obsessed. He has so many trains and train tracks that their whole living room can be filled with train tracks if he wills it. I would like to get him more interested in books and writing workbooks. But I train table would be great too. 🙂
