Baby Christmas Gifts for the 2nd Child

Love it? Share it!

If you have added to your family this year, then you may be in need of Baby Christmas Gifts for the 2nd Child in your home.  Typically there will be a lot of ideas thrown around for babies, but not so much is needed when they are little. 

You may be like us, a receiver of hand me downs from family, friends, or older siblings.  If that is the case, many toys and gift ideas are already in the home.

Christmas gifts for the second child can be a challenge. You want them to have something to open but what is left to buy?

That’s why this list is a great way to treat your kids even when they already have classic gifts at home. If you’re looking for newborn baby gifts for a new mom, we have some ideas for that too!

Baby Christmas Gifts for the 2nd Child

Jerry and I are blessed to have a lot of friends with kids that are older than ours. This means we have been on the receiving end of some pretty generous hand-me-downs. With a baby and toddler in the house, there is no shortage of fun. 

Between those and some toys that I have been collecting throughout the year, we have a pretty good stash of gifts for Oscar.

However, since we still have most of the toys Oscar had as a baby, we really don’t need to get more. This leaves poor Calvin with ONE book under the tree. He already has an activity gym and plenty of bath toys. 

We wanted some gift ideas for babies that would be fun without taking up too much space.

I know he was just a wee baby boy, but I felt so guilty for not having more presents for him! I don’t think kids need tons of toys, but it’s always fun to have something to open.

Here are a few ideas that will help keep you from feeling mommy guilt while giving them something fun and unique to see under the tree!

Pajamas as a baby Christmas gift idea

Who doesn’t love holiday jammies? One of my favorite things to do each year is getting holiday PJs like these from Crazy 8. The best part? If you buy matching ones, the younger sibling gets twice the use!

There are so many cute pairs of matching pajamas for all sizes that you can grab for the whole family. I feel like baby’s first Christmas definitely calls for some cute PJs.

Something Memorable makes a great baby Christmas gift

When the Cubs finally won the World Series, fans all over the world were celebrating. Maybe your family has a few fans of baseball or something else that you want to remember from the past year so something personalized makes a great baby gift.

This type of item can be anything from a collectible item for the year to a specialty ornament with the year engraved on the surface or even a stuffed animal. 

We love making this something that everyone can have a unique gift, but the baby gets something along the same theme.

Bring the family together with a gift for the baby this Christmas

For older siblings, gifting a game or activity they can enjoy together is a great way to get gifts that aren’t simply duplicates of other things you already have.

We like adding a gift under the tree for the baby in the house that will bring the family together.

This is usually a fun movie that is colorful for them or a cute set of books that anyone can read to the baby and spend quality time with them. 

An educational toy makes a great gift because it’s easier to rationalize. Or is that just me?

Unique stuffed animal as a baby Christmas gift

I’m a sucker for a cute stuffed animal. I know, I know they pile up quickly. I like Beanie Boos because they are small, kids love them and they are affordable.

They can be a great addition to your gifts for the new baby.  Stuffed animals are always a fun cherished gift and the perfect baby toy!

My son Cole is also in the same boat. Except his older brother is 5 and is very aware of the toys that used to be his as a baby. The older one, Ian, even pulls those toys out from time to time. Cole is getting a Pottery Barn Anywhere chair from Santa and just a few little things from us. He was born in a different season than Ian, so he has needed some clothes. Ian has a big Santa gift and isn't getting much from us, so he probably won't notice the difference in amount of gifts under the tree. At least I hope not.
