  • cute little age apprpriate toys, clothes.. theres not much a 3month old can enjoy haha Mine was only 2months on his first christmas. Santa still gave him a candy cane and a few goodies in his stocking.
    now mine is 4yrs old and I dont know what to get him.. He just had his birthday so i am still reeling from all the birthday presents.. wish I could recycle a birthday present haha

  • If you want to buy a bigger gift you could get an excersaucer or jumper which he will be ready to use a month or two later. My twins were 4 1/2 months their first Christams and I bought them an activity table and stored it under one of their cribs until they were ready for it. I was looking ahead for bigger things they could use before their first birthday even though they weren't quite ready for them at Christmas.

    For mid-sized gifts you could get a music player of some sort or a floor gym.

    For smaller things you can get rattles, links, carseat or stroller toys, soft books, feeding things like cups, bowls, and spoons that you will need before too long.

  • I suggest shopping for him some things to use a few months from now. He won't be able to use much right now. Things I would suggest buying if you don't already have:

    Jumperoo (you can find them for $50 and up)


    Plush rocking horse

    Lullaby Gloworm (every baby I have ever known that has one of these has loved them, my dd kept hers til she was 3 :)

    Teething toys

  • maybe one of those play mats? One with things hanging off it. Or things that he will keep for years, like a nice wooden toy box with his name engraved on it, or a bookshelf. A special blanket, babies first christmas ornament, bib, teddy bear with the year on it.
