The usual gifts are clothes and toys and books. But if you're looking for gifts for baby boys and girls that will be a little unique, foster imaigination and last longer, then how about giving locally made wooden toys designed by a Waldorf Mom?
One Planet Noah is selling toys like a marble lane (which my son loved at St. Michael Playhouse), castanets (if you want something noisy), a wooden horse and a boat (that functions more like a seesaw), finger puppets, playing house stuff like cooksets and wooden blocks and bricks. One Planet Noah even has these horses that are only horse heads and a pole, and a shield and sword set, perfect for toddlers pretending to joust!
Be a more intentional gift giver! :)
