I’ve finally got my holiday shopping lists made and I’m starting to get a few people checked off of my list.
I couldn’t help but remember how difficult shopping was last year for Mckenna when she was so little, though. She was only 2 months old for Christmas last year. At that age they really don’t know what’s going on and they don’t really need a whole lot. More likely than not, they already got what they needed from baby showers, gifts from others, and from all of that nesting in the last few months of pregnancy. We ended up finding a few things for Mckenna to use when she was older, but I thought it would be appropriate to share a fun little gift guide for the smallest, yet hardest to buy for on your Christmas list!
And the best part? All of these items can be bought from the Gerber Childrenswear line at Walmart. I love that even if I’m just shopping for groceries, or there to pick-up dog food, I can also pick-up a few items from the Gerber Childrenswear line for Mckenna or to have on hand for baby shower or Christmas gifts. It’s just so convenient.
1//Onesies: When I gift onesies or clothing items, I like to gift the next size up or two. That way, I know that they’ll fit into it soon and they’re probably not as likely to have bigger sizes since most people tend to buy newborn to 3 months or so for baby showers it seems like.
2//Burp Cloths: I can’t even tell you how many burp cloths we went through in the first couple of months and beyond. Mckenna didn’t have reflux or anything, but she did spit-up a small amount after most of her feedings. We went through burp cloths like it was going out of style so I ended up buying a couple more packs to have on hand so I didn’t have to wash them all the time.
3//Hooded Towels: Chances are, they’ll already have a few of these, but they’re so nice to have on hand when laundry piles up or if baby is needing more baths for those dreaded blow-outs or for whatever reason! And they’re just plain adorable, too.
4//Socks: Baby socks are just adorable in general, but they also make the perfect stocking stuffer. Baby socks get lost in the laundry so easily (or maybe that’s just at my house) and they could always use bigger sizes to grow into as well.
5//Bibs: If you’re thinking ahead, that tiny little one will be eating pureed foods in a few short months and then a few months after that, they’ll be eating table foods as well. That’s some messy business and I know that I hate washing bibs constantly to have clean bibs ready to use, so having a ton of extra is always helpful! You can never have too many bibs.
Hopefully that helps check the littlest little off of your Christmas list. The quality of the Gerber Childrenswear line is really great as well. All of our products from them have withstood many washes and even after the messiest of situations. If we have a third (I’m probably getting ahead of myself here) it’s comforting to know that we’ll have these items on hand for the next time.
What gift ideas do you have for the baby on your Christmas list?
