Christmas gifts for babies – our top picks
Comforters for babies
Comforters - or ‘doudous’ as they are also affectionately known - are the ideal gift for a newborn baby. Beautifully soft to touch with a small blanket attached to a soft and cuddly toy, many parents reach for these to give to their new babies. As babies grow, many become attached to their comforter, particularly if it has been by their side for as long as they can remember. Choose from a muslin comforter, such as the offerings from well-loved baby brand, aden + anais or a classic velour comforter, such as the Bunny Doudou from Tartine et Chocolat.
Sensory toys for babies
Providing toys that engage the senses are the ultimate gift for little ones. Sensory play is essential for a child’s cognitive, physical and emotional development. Babies can use sensory toys to begin to build on their gross motor skills and the sensory play can provide a welcome comfort to babies who are upset. With so many benefits, it is easy to see why engaging sensory toys are so popular as gifts for babies and toddlers today. Discover our collection, from the Sensory Ball to cloth books and soft toys that can be pulled on to release a calm and soothing melody, such as the Bunny Star Musical Toy by Jellycat.
Teething toys for babies
As a baby begins to grow their teeth, the process can be uncomfortable and, sometimes, painful. Often babies will put anything within their reach into their mouth to bite down on to ease the irritation. Making sure baby has the appropriate toys to chew on is essential. Discover our range of specialist teething toys which encourage sensory development as well as providing a practical use for teething babies.
Bath toys for babies
Baby bath time is a perfect opportunity for developing motor and language skills in a calm and relaxing setting. There are a number of bath toys for babies that encourage engagement and role play which you as the caregiver can join in with, providing a chance to bond as well as educate. Liewood offer sweet bath toys in natural tones as well as animal washcloths and soft hooded towels for drying off afterwards. You can also give your baby a bath book to look at, like the Baby Bath Book from Sophie la Girafe, or the classic childhood bath time treat of the Rubber Duck Toy.
Rattles for babies
A popular toy for babies for many decades, rattles are as engaging as they are fun. Encouraging continued play, the noise that rattles create as a direct result of a baby’s touch makes them a long-lasting toy of choice. Our extensive range of rattle toys makes it easy to choose the perfect toy for your baby. We have everything from soft toy rattles to wooden rattles, silver rattles and even rattle baby slippers.
Keepsakes for babies
If you’re looking to give your baby something extra special this Christmas, why not look at keepsakes? Timeless and traditional gifts, such as the Silver Plated Duck Money Box or the Tooth Fairy Silver Plated Box, will stay with them for years to come and will be a truly treasured gift.
