This holiday toy ($30) is crafted from super soft material that’s completely safe for baby. The five-piece set includes Christmas-themed toys that will keep Baby busy all morning, including a workshop, a Christmas tree squeak toy, a crinkly candy cane, a stuffed present rattle and a Santa Claus plush that makes sound.
Babies love looking at other babies—and during Christmas morning is no different. Who Says Ho Ho Ho? ($8) will allow your own curious baby to explore colorful images of other infants as they get ready for Christmas. The words in the book are easy for an older baby to repeat back to you as they follow along.
This cute rattle ($9) will make a soothing sound as Baby shakes it and plays, and it’s just the right size for little hands to hold. The “1st Christmas” embroidery makes this sweet teddy bear toy a keepsake gift they’ll want to pass on to their own children one day.

We love subscription boxes like this one (from $36 a month) because they’re gifts that keep on giving. Each play kit is filled with developmentally and age-appropriate toys, items and apparel based on the baby’s age. It even provides you with a book of ideas for unlimited play and creativity. (Did you know Taste of Home has a subscription box, too?)
Since babies can’t exactly pitch in while decorating the real Christmas tree in their home, this felt Christmas tree ($9) is an amazing alternative. The cone-shaped tree stands a whopping 28 inches tall and includes 18 big felt ornaments that can be easily hung on the tree, with familiar, cheerful shapes like snowmen, gingerbread girls and snowflakes.
Keep Baby cozy and fashionable on their Christmas morning debut with a personalized bodysuit (from $14). The decorated onesie boasts an adorable design that’s fitting for any sweet boy or girl. Speaking of reindeer, consider bringing back a visit from Santa and other holiday traditions.
