I always get kids books.

I get books, drawing supplies (the kind that are mess free), building blocks, or simple puzzles.

For infants I like getting cloth books because they can play with those in the bath and chew on them and they’re still books.

I also usually ask the parents what their kid is currently into and double check that they don’t already have something that I plan on getting them.

How about building blocks for the kids?  My nephew had fun making castles and kept making things with it until he was 4-5 years old.

For 6 months old it’s hard to say.  The baby probably received a lot of hand me downs from the siblings.  You can always get a cute outfit or toys like a playing table.

anonbee4321 :  ask mom and dad! I always do that. I m avoiding getting toys for my nephews (6 and 3) this year because they literally have so many. This year I got them blankets and pillows of their favorite characters with corresponding pajamas. 

Its kind of lame but year after year of them tearing into every present without even knowing who gave them what makes shopping for them not that much fun, lol.

I got my nephew an old cartoon from when I was little. It’ll be a hit I think!

Books are always good. Wooden puzzles. Duplo?

I second the books! What we did this year was I asked my sister if she needed anything specific for the kids and she said no so I bought them tickets to the Sea Life exhibit that’s local to me. I’m big into experience gifts rather than buying junk that they won’t use in 2 months (although the 6 month old may not get a lot out of it).

The 6 month old, the Fisher price learning dog would be great! It is sold all over the place. I gave this to a distant relative with a young child and it was such a hit that I have given it to 3 other kids since and all the kids and moms have loved it! It is sold practically everywhere you can get any kids toys. I have bought it for about $20 at big lots. Here’s a link to amazon:

anonbee4321 :  they have little fisher price ones i think. I wouldnt get a three year old a legit remote control car, they probably wouldnt be able to figure out the remote. All toys have a recommended age on the box, that will help you figure out if a toy is suitable for your nephew.

Go on amazon and search ” remote control car” and filter by age.
