An infant's first holiday or birthday can't pass unnoticed! Though they may have more fun with the box than anything in it, there are still plenty of fun baby gift ideas out there for infants, whether they're closer to the newborn stage, somewhere in the middle of their first year, or quickly approaching their first birthday. And a total bonus: many of these picks will grow with your baby beyond the baby stage.
Featuring bright colors, rattles, and easy-to-press buttons, many of these toys will help to develop baby's early skills — like their dexterity and fine motor skills — and as they age, will help them learn color names, shapes, numbers, and more. Other gifts, like sweet sound machines and stuffed animals, are ones that your baby should be able to find use for even as they move into the toddler stages (honestly, who doesn't love to snuggle a plushie at any age?).
From activity gyms and teether toys to an adorable stacking rings set and the softest play mat ever, here are our favorite infant gift ideas for babies under the age of 1!
