Reindeer shaped wooden teething toyWe all know that babies usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to Christmas presents, mostly because they’d just as soon spend hours chewing on a big red bow than playing with a bunch of expensive toys.

So this holiday, let them chew on Ringo, an adorable reindeer-shaped wooden teether from CMP fave Little Alouette. Created from locally sourced Ohio maple by a mom and dad team, this toy would make the perfect Baby’s First Christmas gift or, if you’re super organized, a fantastic holiday photo prop for your cards.

And while a wooden teether is great for soothing sore gums, if you’ve got a territorial baby like mine, it works just as well for whacking annoying siblings when they try to take it away from her. -Kristen
