Seeking out the best first Christmas and holiday gift ideas for babies each year for our holiday gift guide is one of my very favorite parts of the job. With a lot of schmaltz out there, a lot of bad sweaters, and a lot of mass produced trinkets oddly labeled “keepsakes,” we take this category very seriously!
So we’re happy that our sponsor, Cardstore.com, has asked us to share some of our very favorite special gift ideas for babies. (After all, they know a liiiittle something about holidays too, if you check their amazing selection of cards online.)
Here are 16 ideas that we think really do feel special–the kinds of things you can pull out year after year to help you reminisce about 2012 when Emma or Julian was more interested in the gift wrap than anything else. Well, it is true. At least for now.
