Well, that’s where you would be wrong, my friend. You see, babies are constantly growing and changing. Buy them something too advanced and they won’t be interested, buy them something that’s below their current cognitive abilities and they’ll be totally offended. There’s a sweet spot when it comes to finding that perfect baby gift and I’m here to help guide you through it.
Some of these items are toys we own, some are ones we’ve played with at friends’ houses and ones that are on Fern’s holiday wish list, and some aren’t even toys at all. I tried to compile a list that would cover all bases. All these items are gender-neutral, budget-friendly (OK, so there are a few splurges…) and fairly design-conscious. I chose items that will appeal to babies without being totally offensive to parental design aesthetic. That said — babies like bright things that make music, so there’s definitely some of that happening, but quality was kept in mind. No cheap, plastic junk here!
