Coming up with babies' gift ideas is so difficult! I think we can all understand that babies don’t want or really need anything, but I totally get that people really want to recognize special occasions.The best gifts for babies stimulate their senses. Babies might not look like they are doing much besides sleeping and eating, but the first year of life is full of seismic shifts in development. And even before they can hold a toy, babies are ready to play. So I put my own list together of great gifts for kids under two. It was a little tricky because shopping for an infant is different from shopping for a 24-month old but I am trying to make it fairly universal.
