If there’s a new little baby in your life, we wouldn’t blame you for wanting to shower her with presents!
Here’s a list of ultra-special gifts for baby girl or boy that are adorable, made for learning, and will last them through their toddler years!
Best Gifts for Baby Girl or Boy
1. Custom Name Puzzle
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.
It’s such a special and thoughtful gift for a baby girl or boy.

2. Baby Play Gym
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.

3. Sensory Toys Subscription Box
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.

4. Activity Chair
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.

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.

6. 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.

7. Bashful Bunny
These extra-long floppy ears are just too cute to resist! Jellycat stuffies can be washed and dried, and will last forever. So go ahead and treat that baby girl or boy with this adorable gift.
Bashful Bunny by Jellycat ($25)
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. Wooden Rainbow Stacker
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.
