Baby Amazon Gift List

So many women in my mommy groups have been asking for Christmas gift recommendations for their babies, so I thought I would put together some of the things I am adding to Sloane's list! All of these options are from Amazon for my fellow prime members and are listed from least to most expensive.

If you need more ideas, check out our other gift lists:

Montessori Busy Board

This busy board comes in multiple colors and would be perfect for traveling with a baby who needs to be entertained whether driving or flying! Portable, lightweight, and with fifteen different activities for keeping your little one engaged, this is something I definitely want to have on hand in the future. It has over three thousand five-star reviews, with most reviewers commenting that it kept their child 'busy' for quite some time and even helped with some fine motor skills, such as zipping or buttoning. It is currently on sale for $15.99 here.

Silicone Alphabet Puzzle

Another Montessori toy, this puzzle has letters made of food-grade silicone that is free from BPA, phthalates, lead, and PVC. Obviously, I don't expect Sloane to be spelling out SAT words any time soon (but, hey, you never know) so this is more of a sensory and shape toy for now, that will be used even more in the coming years! I currently don't have any puzzles for her and this is a great one to start with. You can get the smaller numbers-only puzzle if you already have letters or want something more portable, but the alphabet has additional pieces and is only $16.99.

Colors for Babies Book

I am always looking for more books for Sloane and even though this wouldn't necessarily be a bedtime story, I love adding interactive books into our playing. It comes with an LED light, a button for developing fine motor skills (Sloane's, not mine), and it teaches colors! The book also includes a battery that is supposed to last up to five years. A little pricey for a book, but it has some extra features so it makes more sense. Selling for $18.00 here.

Silicone Stacking Cups

A building toy, once again made from food-grade silicone, is another option that will last for years of playtime. Free from all of the chemicals we want to avoid, dishwasher safe, and useful for even more than just stacking and color recognition. I could totally see bringing these into bath time for Sloane to play with and for rinsing off soap suds! As you might have guessed, there are a lot of similar options on Amazon, but I liked the quality and colors of this set and it comes in at $18.99.

Here's a slightly cheaper option by mushie.

Chef's Cooking Set

I love a good play kitchen and this cooking set seems both sturdy and adorable! According to reviews, it is realistic in quality (someone actually used the utensils for baking) and a great addition to a growing playroom. This follows the Montessori style of play and can encourage imagination and motor skills. I am still on the lookout for a play kitchen that I love, but even without one, this would be a great toy. It is currently 9% off (an odd discount) and priced at $19.99.

Manhattan Baby Stella Doll

This fleece baby doll is adorable and soft; she comes with a magnetic pacifier and apparently the outfits and diapers can be changed. I wanted a soft baby doll, as Sloane loves to gnaw on doll arms and legs (lol yikes), and I imagined it would be better for cuddling. There are similar options with different features, including boy dolls, but this link is to this version. I specifically wanted a darker doll, as I plan to give Sloane babies/dolls of all colors and features! It's kind of expensive, but apparently the company and quality are well-known. Little Stella is selling for $36.29.

Here's an organic cotton doll alternative if that is your preference.

Personalized Doll

My husband's coworker gave this doll to Sloane when she was born and I have loved it ever since! I looked up the label and was shocked to see it was from a relatively small company - the quality is actually really high and the personalization is adorable. Sloane constantly puts Dolly in her mouth, chomps on her legs, or slobbers on her head...and she still looks brand new. You can buy a variety of colors on Amazon for a reasonable price ($36.99)! If that's not your style, I found a few others.

Personalized Book

Reading to my babies is one of my favorite things to do with them, and having a personalized book with their name and likeness is even more special. As they get older, this will be a great keepsake and a fun book to keep coming back to. There are many websites out there to choose from, but I found this one had several options for ages, holidays, and themes while being a much more reasonable price. They frequently have sales and you can also use code CLM10 to get 10% off all of the time!

Cute Stone Color Changing Kitchen Sink

This play sink set is a baby-fave in my mommy groups. The accessories change color based on water temperature, and kids love playing with the water and extra gadgets. The two I found on Amazon from Cute Stone come in either pink or blue and are accomanied by plates, cups, silverware, and a bottle of detergent. The website describes the materials as durable, non-toxic, and BPA-free which is always a plus. For some reason at the moment the two sinks are slightly different prices. The pink is available for $31.49 while the blue is selling for $32.30.

Retrospec Balance Bike

Honestly, I first just liked the aesthetic of this bike...but it has over 1,500 five-star reviews and seems like a great summer edition. It's recommended for ages 12-24 months so she will be ready to use it when the weather gets nicer. This is described as a bike/walker, as it can help with balance for both riding and walking (your child's feet are always touching the ground). It comes with non-slip, scratch-resistant wheels. I don't know how much I expected a child's bike to be, but $49.99 seems like a good price. You can find it (and in other colors) here.

Wooden Walker/Doll Stroller

Baby Stella's going to need somewhere to ride and this doll stroller is so cute! I like that it can also be used as a walker and that it meets European safety standards. Not to mention, it functions as a pretty storage wagon for all the toys we want to transfer from room to room (Sloane doesn't like to stay in one place for very long). It does need to be assembled, but my husband mastered it quickly, and it is worth it! It frequently goes on sale, but currently is selling for $69.99.

Little Dove Play Tent with Mat

A pretty, neutral color and space big enough for at least two people means this play tent would be the perfect addition to any playroom. I loved my old Disney princess tent when I was little, but this one is much more chic; plus I like that it's a little house! It also includes the star lights if you want to add some sparkle for your kids to enjoy. The reviews mention it is a little annoying to assemble, but my husband didn't really have any issues. I prefer this over a "teepee" and like that it has a mat on the floor for comfort. This tent comes in at $69.99.

Little Dove Kiddie Ball Pit

I have heard so many moms say that a ball pit seemed like a terrible idea but ended up being a great toy (and distraction) for their kids. This one has a sleek and modern design and is made of foam; it does not come with any balls (I found some here that match the color scheme) but I like the way that it looks and the soft fabric that covers the pit itself. I am already internally cringing at the idea of balls being everywhere, but I think Sloane will enjoy playing with this and we can practice cleaning up together! This option retails for $69.99.
