Everyone knows the holidays are sweeter with a baby! The Holiday Help here at Abby’s Lane has created a great assortment of gifts for your giggling, crawling, drooling, STILL NOT SLEEPING little bundle of holiday joy. Take a look at some of our favorite baby gifts at every price point.
Little and Lovely
Our “stocking stuffer” gift suggestions include lots of cute and practical items for baby. New to Abby’s Lane this year, the Grabease First Self Feeding Utensil Set ($14.99) comes with a spoon, fork and carrying case. These ergonomically designed utensils have clever innovations to prevent choking and promote self feeding. The Innobaby Birthstone Ring Teether ($9.99) is shown here in December’s birth stone — Blue Topaz. These handy teethers are made of food grade silicone and make a fun, personalized addition to baby’s stocking. The benefits of teaching sign language to babies are well documented and well known throughout the Abby’s Lane community, so we love Workman Publishing’s My First Baby Signs book ($11.99). The colorful illustrations and interactive pull tabs make teaching and learning basic signs lots of fun. Speaking of fun, Skip Hop’s Bandana Buddies ($15.00) come in 8 different animal options (we love the mischievous little fox shown above) each with a plastic bandana that detaches to be a teether for baby. For babies on the go, the Chewbeads Gramercy Stroller Toy ($15.00) is a great silicone teething option as well. The smaller ring can be attached to a stroller, baby carrier, anywhere baby may travel! For baby’s newly arrived and hard won teeth, we love the Frida Baby Smile Frida Toothbrush ($9.99). The “Tooth-hugger” offers an innovative three sided design to make brushing gentle and quick. Last but not least, every baby we’ve seen who has gotten her hands on a Fat Brain Toys Pip Squigz Loopz ($9.99) has been instantly enchanted. This simple toy is great for chewing, shaking, all kinds of baby fun!
Perfectly Personal Presents
Our mid-price selection brings bright colors and lots of fun for your baby this holiday season. Starting off, the EZPZ Tiny Bowl ($14.99) and Mini Mat ($19.99) are perfect for new self-feeders. The silicone mats suction to any flat surface and the smaller design means that EZPZ is a perfect match with any high chair or booster seat. Smart Bottoms Wet Bags in Mini ($10.00), Small ($13.00) and On The Go ($18.00) size are fun and useful gifts for so much more than cloth diapers. We love them to carry feeding supplies out and about, to stash wet swim gear for mom and baby, and to store little toys. Don’t miss the sweet little Soul Slings Baby Shoes in Goldfinch ($27.99) hiding in the middle of our assortment. These soft, sherpa lined, wrap scrap shoes are a wonderful first indoor shoe — soft, easy to put on and generously sized. Fat Brain Toys Oombee Cube ($16.99) is a modern take on the classic shape sorter. This award winning design has the sorting pieces attached, making it perfect for travel and play on the go. Whether baby is drinking breast milk, formula or his first sips of water, the Pura Kiki 5oz Infant Bottle ($16.49)is a great addition to any meal. As baby grows, you can switch out the slow flow nipple for fast flowing or sippy or straw top, insuring that this is one gift that will truly last long past the season. Lastly, check out our favorite baby leggings Doodle Pants ($24.99). These adorable, unisex leggings are available in more than 30 designs and certain to keep baby warm and cuddly all winter long.
Generous Gifts to Give
Here are some gifts chosen to inspire oohs and aahs from baby this holiday season. First we have the gorgeous XOXO Baby Carrier ($180.00)in the exclusive Violet design. This flexible carrier combines the comfort of a wrap with the ease of a soft structured carrier to make the perfect ride for babies 7 to 35 lbs. The Dock a Tot Deluxe ($195.00) is beloved by parents all over the world for providing a safe and cozy surface for baby to sleep on. The beautiful European designed cover is easily removed for cleaning and changing. The assortment of Tekhni Wovens Wrap Scrap Teethers ($15.00 each) offer some favorite Tekhni wrap scraps with a safe wooden teether. We love these as a way to share some of mom’s favorite wrap designs with baby. Lastly, we have some of our favorite Fat Brain Toys for babies: Spoolz ($24.95), Tobbles ($26.99) and Spin Again ($29.99). All three of these classics are developmentally appropriate for babies but continue to entertain and delight well into the toddler years.
