It’s Christmas time again, and you may be wondering what to get for who, but the choices can be especially boggling when it comes to the youngest of friends and family. Here are some gift ideas for the 6 month old in your life.
Although it’s not directly for the child (not yet, anyway), money’s always a big helper. Donating to the baby’s college fund or a UTMA or savings account is a wonderful gift for the future that both baby and parents can appreciate later.
At 6 months, most babies are right at that cusp of trying out solid foods. A huge help to parents of a 6 month old would be the gift of food. A can of formula (make sure to check with mom and dad as to what brand baby’s on!) and a few jars of baby food to try out can be a fun gift. Try packaging everything in a cute basket with a small stuffed animal and you’ve got a great gift idea.
This is a classic gift at any age that definitely helps new parents with providing for their baby. Just make sure to ask for the appropriate sizes beforehand.
Many babies at this stage are either already starting to teethe or soon will be. Any new parents can be appreciative of some fun and effective teether toys:

Ok, so now for the really fun stuff. At 6 months old, a baby is an explosion of discovery and it’s around this time that they’re usually at least sitting up on their own. So without further ado, here are some fun toys that would make great gifts for a 6 month old:
Little Tikes Baby Tap-A-Tune Piano – Helping baby explore his musical side at a low cost.
VTech Move & Crawl Ball – An exciting interactive ball that rolls and sings and lights up.
Little Taggies Petal Blocks Blanket – A nice soft ‘lovey’ for baby with different textures to discover.
Dr. Suess ONE FISH Fish Bowl Toy – Great toy with four different fish to explore…and the Dr. Suess reference is also pretty cool.
Munchkin Mozart Magic Cube – The ultimate in interactive musical toys, and at a great price, too.
Fisher Price Bat And Wobble Penguin – Giving baby some exercise while providing a good giggle.
