What to get a new Baby for Christmas...

I'm having problems deciding on what to get my newest baby who is 3 mos. now, for Christmas. She will be 5 months when Christmas arrives. I got my 1st born sooooo much stuff it wasn't funny, but half of the stuff was useless to her for a long time. I don't want to make that same mistake again.

  • Well at this age there isnt much they really need. I say clothes =) Since they grow like weeds at this point. Maybe some rattles and stimulating toys for stocking stuffers. If it's one thing I have learned throughout the years, it's to enjoy these simple Christmases when they really don't want or need much at all

  • My daughter was 5 days old on her first x-mas. My family had gotten her lots of little toys fit for a baby, clothes, it seemed endless! Even some stuff she still has to this day, it's never bad to have a stock up, saves moneys.

  • Just get her a US saving bond for her future.

  • A few toys and an ornament for the tree. She will be more interested in the wrapping paper, anyway! lol

  • I am 30 and the only christmas presents I still have are the christmas ornaments my Mom gave me every year. Every year since I was born she gave me a hallmark ornament, now I hang them all on my christmas tree and each one brings back a memory. I have a 6 month old and I am going to do the same for him.
