Holiday Gift Guide for Kids Under 3

Hello, and happy Wednesday!  Today I’m sharing my gift guide for the sweet littlest ones who are always so much fun to shop for!  We don’t have any little bitty babies to buy for anymore, but I’ve done some research to see what items are available these days for babies, and these are the items that would be on my wish list if we were having another one.


1 – Silicone Bib

This silicone bib is soft and lightweight, and the pocket stays open to catch food.  It’s BPA and phthalate free, and it can be thrown in the dishwasher after each use.  With 4.9 / 5 stars, this one is a winner for baby as well as mom and dad!  And it comes in 10 different patterns so there’s something for everyone.


2 – Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit

This sleepsuit helps baby sleep better by muffling the reflexive twitches that tend to disrupt sleep.  It keeps them feeling warm and cozy and secure while they sleep safely on their backs.  These weren’t around when my kiddos were little, but I’ve seen numerous parents rave about them and say that they are truly magical.  With 4.6 / 5 stars and 20,000+ reviews, this definitely sounds like a necessity for every family with a small baby.


3 – Fisher-Price Portable Baby Seat

This baby seat keeps babies secure while they sit up and play on their own, and it comes with two linkable toys for baby to play with.  The seat pad is removable and machine-washable, and the whole seat folds flat for easy transport and storage.


4 – Pacifier Clips

These beautiful wooden pacifier clips keep pacis close, so baby never loses them or drops them on the floor.  They’re BPA, phthalate, latex, and lead free, and they come in 11 different sets of colors. 


5 – Manhattan Toy Teether Toy

This baby teether is perfect for even the smallest babies because it’s made from a maze of soft teething tubes that even the littlest hands can hold.  It’s BPA free, and it can be refrigerated for added comfort on their sore gums.  Rated 4.8 / 5 stars with 33,000+ reviews, this one is definitely a winner!  And right now, there's a coupon you can clip for an additional $2.50 off!


6 – BIBS Pacifiers

These pacifiers are not only functional, but beautiful, too!  These mimic the shape and softness of mother’s breast for ultimate comfort for baby, and they come in eight different sets of colors.    


7 – Munchkin Bluetooth Baby Swing

This baby swing emulates a parent’s natural side-to-side sway with five levels of range of motion.  It’s Bluetooth enabled so you can play your child’s favorite music from your phone.  It’s also lightweight and portable so you can take it on the go, and the seat pad and head support are machine washable. 


8 – Fisher-Price Sorting Blocks Set

This blocks sorting set comes with 10 blocks in different shapes and colors, and it can help your baby learn how to sort, stack, and drop.  All blocks fit in the bucket for easy storage, and it has a handle to make it easy to transport.


9 – Carter’s Unisex Footed Sleep and Play Onesies

These were the best things to dress our babies in for bedtime when they were little – my all-time favorite pajamas.  Lightweight and breathable, these cotton pajamas kept babies comfy, and they have a zipper from neck to toe that makes it easy to get baby in and out of for middle-of-the-night diaper changes… no more buttons or snaps!!  Having to line up buttons or snaps was always the worst thing in the middle of the night.  Each onesie also has a protective button that snaps over the zipper, so you don’t have to worry about the zipper scratching baby while they sleep.


10 – Oogiebear Booger Tool

This Oogiebear booger tool has a special rubber scoop and loop that are gentle enough to clean out even the littlest noses and ears.  The scoop removes dried boogers from baby’s nose or wax from baby’s ears, and the loop helps grab snot from baby’s nose.  The bear shaped head at the end of the loop is designed to ensure that the scoop never goes too far up the nose or in the ears, so you can have peace of mind while you’re cleaning. 


11 – Tummy Time Aqua Mat

This tummy time aqua mat can be inflated and filled with the desired amount of water to keep baby comfy.  Tummy time is so important for baby to help promote muscle development, and my babies always hated it, so this mat would have been a more enjoyable way to help them get in their tummy time.


12 – Muslin Blanket

Muslin blankets were our absolute favorite for swaddling when the kids were tiny babies.  Made from thin, very breathable fabric, they kept baby warm, but they weren’t bulky at all.  They’re also very stretchy so it was easy to get them swaddled tightly.  I just ADORE the I love you pattern on this one.  It is so precious.


13 – Breathing Monitor

This tiny monitor clips to baby’s diaper while they sleep, and you can monitor baby’s temperature, breathing, and sleep position right from your phone.  Get notified when baby’s breathing is weak, when baby rolls over to sleep on their stomach, or when baby’s temperature moves out of your preferred range.


And that’s it for the littles!  Don’t forget to share the image on Pinterest for easy reference when you start shopping!


  1. How cute are all of these! This makes me really want grandchildren!

  2. We have and still use the portable baby seat, it works great! We usually put him in there and sit him on top of the table when we eat dinner.

    1. Aw that's so sweet! I wish they'd had something like that when our kiddos were little. I don't ever remember seeing anything like it back then.

  3. That booger tool would have been useful when my kids were little! Ha, ha! Oh, this makes me want a little one again, so many cute things!


  4. I really like the Manhattan Toy Teether Toy. This year I have 3 grandsons under the age of two to buy gifts for.

    1. Oh that is so exciting! Enjoy those sweet little babies! I miss those days.

  5. I had that Merlin's Magic Suit and it was awesome! Jane looked like a little marshmallow in it and it cracked me up every time, but it truly helped her sleep!
