6 month old Christmas presents can be hard to figure out. While baby’s first Christmas is an exciting time, but it’s more for the family than the baby. Here are some great ideas for what to give a 6 month old.
I’ve had 3 spring babies with two being born in May. This means their first Christmas, they were old enough o “celebrate” and get “presents” but obviously not old enough to actually enjoy the holiday.
We live in a small home, which means out space for “stuff” just does not exist. Because of this, we try to keep holidays and presents minimal, or at least realistic.
6 Month Old Christmas Presents That Aren’t a Total Waste
With my babies turning around 6 months near Christmas (Owen was closer to 9 months, but this guide would work for him as well) it’s hard to resist buying gifts.
If you’re facing the same issue or you have a 6 month old baby in your life and you want to grab a gift for, this guide is for you!
A pretty frame to decorate her room that she’ll love when she’s older. Fill it with a photo of you and her or leave it blank. Either way everyone will love it!
A quality stuffy.
I think the trendy knit stuffed animals are so cute! Not only that, they’re quality and heirloom quality so they’re sure to last to hand down to their own kiddos. They can be a bit pricey, so it’s perfect for a special gift.

On the same page, think about a sweet, quality blanket to keep them warm when blankets are introduced into bed. In the meantime, he can cuddle with it on the couch with Mommy and Daddy all winter long.
My oldest LOVED what we affectionately called a “Jumpy Jump.” Always check with the parents if you’re a grandparent looking to buy one, but we found this totally worth the floor space it took up. It kept baby entertained for 3-6 months making it a great 6 month old Christmas present.
Obviously less exciting, but parents will appreciate essentials as gifts! Babies don’t know the difference. Things like clothes for the next growth spurt, diapers, wipes, etc will be much appreciated to parents.
If you’re looking for toys to give a 6 month old, look for things that can be played with now but will grow with them. This walker is great since it can be played with sitting and then used as a walker later.
High chair/eating tools
6 months typically signals time to start introducing solids. Ask the parents if they’ve invested in a high chair yet and if not, see if that would be a good gift! We love these space saving options.
Also think feeding tools like baby friendly utensils, cups, bibs, and plates.
