Catimini Fall - Sur La Route Jumper, Tee & Tights Set - Oliebollen.com
The sheer joy of having a little toddler or baby around the holidays is probably enough for most doting parents and family. Though the under-two set is typically more enthralled with the wrapping paper and cardboard boxes than with the toys themselves, there is something irresistible about those cute little baby clothes and toys that just make you want to shower them with gifts for their first holiday season. Remember the holidays by getting your little guy or gal their first Christmas tree ornament, and if you're feeling especially sentimental, Target sells kits to make a baby imprint ornament of your cutie's foot or hand. For the budding artist, get owl-shaped crayons, which are both cute and useful. For the fashionista, Stella McCartney for Baby Gap is still available so go pick up a cute pair of skinny jeans and a puff sleeve top that even the most chic mommy would want to wear. Don't have time to put together the perfect baby gift? IncrediBundles.com lets you pick from tons of useful bundles of baby gifts, from all organic toys to memory bundles that come with a digital camera. Check out the slideshow for gifts to satisfy all the little ones' wishes!
At age one, I was a mouse, and front-page news for winning my small town's Halloween costume contest. While my fifteen minutes of fame has come and gone, there may be a little one in your life who has a winning future too. Yes, sometimes toddlers don't like costumes -- or clothes in general, for that matter -- but wrestling them into an over-sized, plush lobster may just be worth the hassle. It's probably true that junior won't remember his or her first anything let alone the first October 31st, but the pictures will live to tell the story of a good costume. The best thing about these costumes is that they're timeless, and certainly reusable for the next little nugget that will fit into them. Don't make them too scary though -- the thought of getting a toddler into a costume is frightening enough. Click through the slideshow for some adorable Halloween costumes for babies!
