princessbride2017 : lol I was actually JUST sitting here pondering the same thing.. my nephews are a little older (2 and 4) and i have another niece/nephew due on dec 15th.. and i just have no idea what to buy. I feel completely out of the loop when it comes to toys….

My “go to” gifts for little children are books. They will have more clothes and toys than they know what to do with. Start a library for them. If you like, you could make a tradition of a book and a contribution to their college account.

As a mum, books are always a good present. LO loves especially the ‘100 first words’ with lots of pictures of different things and also books that make noise. If you wanted to buy something more expensive, I think an activity table would be great. Babies start using them properly around nine months but they can be used as a toy without the legs earlier.

I second books! Dear Daughter will be almost 5 months and aside from her first baby doll, we’ll probably just get her books. We got my 4-month-old niece a stuffed animal a couple years ago, but I’ve realized now with Dear Daughter that she has so many from people.

As a mom of an almost 1 year old with a birthday 2 weeks before Christmas (hence lots of gifts all at once, once a year), books are great!! At 5-6 months my DS loved touch and feel books. Plus they usually don’t get bored of books, they may rotate through and pick them back up months later (although they can do that with toys too).

Books are my go to gift for kids. No one can have enough books.

Try lil lit book series they are super cute! Or tab type books like Lick or Munch. For toys my son loves the Haba wooden manual toys and rattles.

Let’s see…a 5 month old, hmmm. If he doesn’t already have an activity bouncer I would get him one. Same with a walker. If he is still in an infant carseat and needing a regular sized one, I would look into that as well if your budget allows for it. Books are great, but at his age I would recommend getting him the thick board books which are harder to destroy – especially since he will try to use them as teethers.

Another vote for books! You can get both board books and classic, much-loved books like The Polar Express, Where the Wild Things Are, Blueberries for Sal, Quick as a Cricket, etc. Also, Indestructibles are awesome books for babies and we love taking them on the place because they’re light and packable.
