Even before they're born, babies are constantly showered with gifts. If you're anything like me, you can't walk into a store with a baby section without loading up your cart with all things colorful, shiny, and adorable. And when the holidays arrive, it's even harder to fight the urge.The options can be overwhelming, but a a handy guide to gifts for babies can help narrow it down.
A fun new toy to captivate a baby's attention (and score a few moments of peace for mom or dad) is always a great choice, but there's much more to consider. You can pick up some books to build their library or adorable clothes to keep them looking Instagram ready. You can even snag a special keepsake they can treasure for years to come.
Whether you're looking for the perfect present for a newborn who isn't doing much besides eating, sleeping, and pooping, or an older baby who's already on the move, here are some great options here for every age and stage.
(And remember, don't stress too much about buying the perfect gift for the baby in your life. In my experience, babies generally aren't super picky, and at the very least, they're sure to love the box it comes in.)
