I have the perfect roundup of amazing must-have gifts that every little one needs for their first Christmas. Check out the fabulous items that made the list starting with my childhood favorite…. Highlights Magazine!

Highlights Hello Magazine

The Highlights Hello Magazine is the perfect gift for any baby, especially as a gift for your babies 1st Christmas. This provides your little one with the gift that keeps on giving as the recipient will receive a new book each month. Each Hello magazine follows a theme such as Sounds, Food or Farm Animals and they each help young children to make sense of their world. Each and every issue is filled with colorful images, whimsical read-aloud stories, poems and simple activities that make babies giggle, laugh and learn. You’ll also find word play, games and lots of silly fun. Plus it is no secret that babies love to look at other babies, so Hello also features plenty of photos of happy faces and little ones laughing and playing. Plus, their read-aloud stories are just the right length for even the youngest ones’ attention spans. My absolute favorite part is that these magazines or books are thoughtfully designed. Hello is the perfect size for little hands to hold and to fit into a diaper bag or purse. They are also made to be baby-safe and are made of tear resistant, washable material with rounded corners and a stitched (not stapled) binding! For extra safety, Hello is mailed in an envelope that keeps it germ-free while it’s on its way to your home. You will just love watching your special little one get excited with every page turn and the best part is the time spent laughing, playing and reading Hello and the fact that this is the gift to help make a positive connection between reading and fun!

Baby play mats are designed to engage baby’s curiosity and promote physical development and the toys and motion provide sensory stimulation for the baby to promote curiosity and sensory stimulation. Throw in the dual music mode and this thing is the best gift ever!
