    Top 5 Best Christmas Gifts for Infants | 2017 Reviews

    Who would have thought that Christmas is already just around the corner?

    It may still be a few months away but it is always a good thing to come prepared, especially when it comes to your Christmas present ideas. And, among the toughest questions that you might have to ask would be, what baby Christmas gifts to give to your little ones or those of your relatives or friends? How do you know what makes babies happy for the holidays?

    Fortunately, babies are not really fussy about what they receive for Christmas. In fact, they can just stay satisfied with a pair of breasts with unlimited milk supply – or endless bottles of one, if they are not breastfed.

You might even want to check other unique options such as costumes or even souvenir items to capture a special moment in their life. Their first Christmas happens only once, after all!

    If you are out of options or do not have much of a clue as to what to get little kiddos, whether yours or another person’s, you do not have to look further. Here is a list of the best baby gift ideas so you can already start shopping for holiday presents as early as today.

    InCharacter Baby's Santa's Lil' Elf Costume

    InCharacter Baby's Santa's Lil' Elf Costume

    Practicality is always an issue when giving gifts but when it is the holidays, we cannot help but put an exception to every rule. Well, not all, but maybe most of them. Thus, we are placing this adorable elf costume that will definitely make any baby look cute in them.

    Babies already get a lot of attention because of how cute they look but they will surely have more heads turned when they are out in public dressed in these.

    One of the things we really love about this Christmas gift for babies is that they allow the little ones to stay warm and secure. Moms and dads, we clearly should never sacrifice our kid’s comfort just to be able to achieve a look that we want them to have. And, with this elf costume, even if you are out for the day during the cold winter months, you can still be sure that your kid is protected from harsh cold. Of course, we still suggest bringing a backup jacket, just in case. The costume also comes with a pair of boots and a hat – and you can just add in gloves or earmuffs if it gets really cold.

    For people giving these out as presents to other parents’ kiddos, you do not have to worry about finding what a great baby girl or baby boy gift is because they are perfect for any gender. Santa’s little helper can be a boy or a girl, definitely!

    Although clothing is not something that parents should spend a lot on, especially for infants since they grow very quickly, we still believe that there is an exception to every rule and the holidays is just that! We want our kiddos to look perfectly adorable in the holiday photos even if we look at them 10 to 20 years from now, so we are definitely placing this one high up on our list at number one.

    Charming Baby Handprint and Footprint Frame Kit

    Charming Baby Handprint and Footprint Frame Kit

    Many kids are difficult to find a present for because we think that their parents have already given them ‘everything’ that they need. So, why not come up with a unique baby gift instead?

    Life is fleeting and you will soon realize that when you have a kid to look after, whether they are your own or another person’s. Babies will not stay babies forever so if you can capture that moment and ‘bottle’ it then it would be very nice, right? Fortunately for parents who want to do just that, this handprint and footprint frame kit is the perfect gift for them. They can get their hands dirty with this adorable and simple DIY craft kit that will help preserve that moment in time when their babies still had those cute chubby feet and hands.

    This infant Christmas gift is basically a package of air-drying clay so it is great even for busy parents. All they simply have to do is prepare the clay, get the imprints of their baby’s hand and foot and let the clay air dry. There is no longer a need to mix or bake the ingredients to get the project done. Plus, there are no toxic chemicals involved in the product so it is safe even for newborn babies.

    Of course, the little keepsake does not end there. The clay can be put together, along with two cute pictures of the baby, in a small picture frame that comes with a safe acrylic glass that can withstand all sorts of pressure. Parents do not have to worry about their frames breaking because the glass, which feels more like a flexible plastic, is strong!

    The only reason we have to put this product on the second position in our list is that the entire packaging feels slightly cheap and bland. If you want it to look more cheerful when gifting then you might have to decorate it a little bit more.

    Billie Bumble Silicone Baby Bibs

    Billie Bumble Silicone Baby Bibs

    You know what moms hate most about growing babies? The mess that comes with them; especially come feeding time! So, when you are looking for the best baby gifts for infants, these unique baby bibs might just be your best option.

    Truly, it is nice to have kids find their way around the world and it all starts with feeding themselves when they reach about six months old. However, it also means a lot of mess for parents to clean which can be very frustrating and time-consuming. So, what is the best way around it? A baby bib, of course.

    However, this adorable Christmas gift for babies is no ordinary bib as it can do a lot more than the cloth bib that we are used to seeing. What we certainly love about this product is that it comes with a deep tray that catches all the drool, chunk, bits, splatter, spit and more that does not get inside the baby’s mouth. Of course, that probably means 90 percent of what little kids try to put inside their mouths.

    A lot of moms, including us here at Parents Need HQ will be able to save time in cleaning the floors and tables so it means more time doing other things, like bonding with the baby. And, the silicone baby bib is extremely easy to clean so you do not have to worry about stains. Simply wash them up in soapy water, dry it and they are good to go. They do not absorb water so you do not have to worry about getting spills in them while your baby is wearing the bib. You can even just throw them into the dishwasher!

    We do love many things about this unique baby gift for infants but it unfortunately does not catch everything, such as when the baby tries to throw their food. Not a lot of very young eaters (around six months) might also love having this around their neck so we are placing this at the middle spot in our list.

    Fisher-Price Bright Beginnings Activity Walker

    Fisher-Price Bright Beginnings Activity Walker

    If you are looking for great toys for 1 year old babies, you are in luck because we have just the right product included here in our list. Well, this one can be used by slightly younger kids – just as long as you know that the baby you are giving this to has yet to master walking, then you can give this as a holiday gift.

    There are many things that we love about this activity walker and it is mainly because of having multiple functions. First of all, this product is a walker which means that they provide among the best support for little ones who are still learning to walk. It doesn’t surround them like the regular baby walkers so it teaches them to support themselves independently – and get up when they fall. They will have to find a way to support their bodies instead of simply leaning on the equipment since it only supports them from one side.

    However, we also consider this Fisher-Price walker as one of the best gifts for 1 year old boys and girls because it also provides several other activities to keep them entertained if they get tired from walking and exploring around. It comes with spinning wheels, flipping doors, turning gears, sliding beads and many more. They even come in various colors so they certainly stimulate their sight – and encourage curiosity and learning. You might just be surprised at how much your child learns when they are left to play on their own with this activity walker.

    While its lightweight design is a big plus especially for very young kids, it might just be its biggest flaw. Since beginner walkers have yet to master their balance, there could be times that the walker would cause them to fall since it is not heavy enough to support their weight. It would be best to keep your kiddos supervised when they use this product but for this, we are placing it at the fourth spot.

    Ecandy Constellation Night Light Projector Lamp

    Ecandy Constellation Night Light Projector Lamp

    The last item in our list is the perfect gift for 1 year old girls and boys who might have trouble sleeping especially in the dark. This nightlight is a great companion at night especially since it casts a starry projection on the ceiling.

    This nightlight comes with four bright LED lights in yellow, red, blue and green colors to project different types of stars. It helps provide distraction for babies trying to sleep alone in the dark. While it creates a romantic projection of a constellation, it isn’t overwhelming to the eyes and even helps soothe them to sleep. This product is even perfect for adults! You can choose from different light and rotation modes depending on the user’s preferences.

    Unfortunately, there are many things that we did not quite like about this adorable constellation night light. For one, it does not have a power button which can be a major hassle and can eat up a lot of power when using batteries. In order to switch it off, you will have to remove a battery or plug it off from a power source.

    We would have also loved for the nightlight to come with soothing music to accompany the rotating stars. Additionally, an added base weight would be a plus since it looks like it could very easily topple over and break into parts. Perhaps if the manufacturer can create a better and sturdier version of this nightlight so that it is thicker and heavier than it currently is, then that would bring major points to this product.

    While we cannot deny that this nightlight is cute, we will have to push it down the fifth in our spot because of many cons.

    Conclusion

    Finding the perfect Christmas gift for infants can be a tricky challenge, especially when you know that their parents have well-provided them with essentials. If you want, you can simply talk to the parent (or yourself?) to see what else their babies want. Or, you could choose something more unique and special that will help keep memories last a lifetime. Good luck and happy gift hunting!
