  • Books, my son loved picture books at that age. Also, any toys that are for that age. Stuff that makes noise. Cloths are always good for the parents, the kid isnt going to know what you got them anyway! My son also got a push toy that helped him learn to walk.

  • I would say any book or a simple toy...that way he can actually be excited about it
    when you give a baby that little a toy to open and its all electronic and gadgetty they just get confused

    if you want to see his face light up get him something he's familiar with...simplistic, a book, stackable blocks, rings, etc things like that. and wrap it lightly so he can get his fingers gripped enough to rip it open

  • BOXES!!! lol seriously. all their gonna wanna play with is the wrapping paper and the boxes. you can get them some clothes and maybe like 2 learning toys for their age group but all their gonna really want is the wrapping paper.

  • Anything, your son won't care! If I had a baby that small I would get them things they need and a few toys. For my son's 1st Christmas last year he was 11 months old and we just got him toys. He didn't really care, he'd rather play with boxes and bows.

    That one looks like loads of fun for a baby. My kids would have loved those when they were little.

  • This is a fun age....My son was 6mos and we got him a activity table. Possible some typoe of walking toy he may not be close but it won't be long. They make a ton of education baby toys. That fisher price crib aquarium is awesome! leap frog has a lot of cool toys too! ve 3 kids A wonderful girl toy which is what we got our youngest last year was that fisher price stroller its a walking toy. My daughter loves it. Also the two toys she has loved from last year that she still plays with is a crawling winnie the pooh and the baby laptop by v-tech I think. She loves them. I have three kids so hopefully I gave some ideas!
