A play gym is an ideal spot for your baby to hang out that’s just theirs. The sensory toys provide stimulation and motivation to reach and play. The soft surface is nice for tummy time or just sitting. Plus, we love the idea that this play gym can be covered to make a little tent!
This play gym by Lovevery was designed with child development experts and crafted with safe and durable materials.
Your baby will love hanging out here.

Wooden toys are a great addition to any toy collection. Not only are they durable and pleasing to the eye, but they can also be the perfect finishing touch for any modern nursey. This wooden play gym is on our list of gifts for baby girl or boy because of its naturally elegant and minimalistic look and feel.
We love how simplistic yet engaging it is, especially for your growing baby. You can expect her to spend time fixated on the macrame toys, which are known to have a calming effect.

Rather than scouring toy stores for the best developmental toys for babies, let the experts send them to you right when you need them.
Play kits by Lovevery, like “the senser” let your baby learn to investigate the world around them. You enter your baby’s birthdate, and get a new, age-based play kit every other month.

Babies love having a spot that’s just for them, and this activity chair will let them cit up unassisted.
The chair comes with interactive toys that squeak, flap, and move, and will take your little one well into her toddler years.

We love gifts for baby girl and boy that are both functional and pleasing to the eye, which is why this spring-inspired teether is on our list of must-haves. Not only can it be used as a teether, but also a bath and sensory toy. This means that it will stay with your baby for years to come.
We know that babies are always on the go, so you can tie this teether to a strap for baby to free up her hands when she wants to play. After all, you wouldn’t want her to lose this multifunctional gem now, would you?

8. Dimpl Digits
These buttons are just so satisfying to little fingers! It’s a wonderful sensory gift that will keep them busy from baby to toddler years. We also love that it’s small and flat, and wipes clean – which makes the Dimpl the best on-the-go toy.
9. Star Wand
A princess? A fairy? A little magician? There are so many things that you could be when wielding a wand!
This star wand is a beautiful gift for a baby girl, that can serve as decor or a sensory toy in the early months and a cherished imagination companion throughout her childhood.
Leave it unadorned while she’s still a baby, and let her decorate it when she gets older.
Star Wand ($11)
When we think of cute gifts for baby girl and boy, this one-of-a-kind unicorn teether toy immediately comes to mind. Its colorful nature makes it aesthetically pleasing and the perfect companion for trips in the stroller or those days when baby is in need of something soothing for those sore gums.
Equally charming is the dinosaur-inspired teether toy, perfect for your growing baby. We love its earthy tones and playful design, complete with clinking rings for baby to hold onto when soothing those sore gums.

Who doesn’t want to play with a rainbow! This sensory wooden toy will help your little one learn her colors and fit things together. It’s wonderful for learning, but it’s also lovely to look at as an adorable nursery decoration.

What’s more special than a puzzle bearing your little baby’s name. It serves as decor, a keepsake, and will help her learn letters as a sensory toy.

15. Books – Best Gifts For Baby Girl or Boy!
Who wouldn’t want their kids to fall in love with science? And all it takes is a little spark! Which is why board books make great gifts for a baby girl or boy.
Our family loves the Chris Ferrie “Baby University” books that introduce science in a very baby-friendly way.
We also really like “This Little Scientist” for inviting girls and boys to learn about scientists and their accomplishments, covering different cultures and genders.
