How to Save Money on Christmas Gifts for Babies and Toddlers

I know it is almost Christmas, and I am sure the majority already bought Christmas gifts for their kids.

The reason is very simple; all the parents (including me) try to take advantage of Black Friday or from other promotions to make sure they are buying the gifts on time for and at a good price. 


But if you are part of the group of parents that haven’t bought their gift yet because your budget is tight, or perhaps you are waiting for a sale to buy more toys, please keep reading;  I will tell you what you should buy for these stages, and what to avoid to save money.


How we can Save Money 

A few weeks ago speaking with my sister-in-law about Christmas presents for my toddler (18 months old), I realized that a big mistake we do when we buy the Christmas Gifts for our baby or toddler is to buy lots of toys because they do not really care.

After telling my sister-in-law that I just wanted to buy 2 or 3 toys because of the way he treats them, throwing them all the time (this’s the way he plays). So I thought:


The First way to Save Money on Christmas presents for my son is buying only 2 or 3 toys, a considerable number for his age, this is not being cheap just aware of what they will need for their stage.

I know what you are thinking right know “But my son/daughter loves opening presents (this is what exactly my husband said),” or “but only 2 or 3 gifts under the Christmas Tree are not enough, it doesn’t look well.”

After my husband mentioned that there were very few gifts for our son to open my answer was “Okay, we can wrap some of his toys that are sitting in the living room, he does understand if they are new or not.”


He wasn’t really happy, but my sister-in-law and I think it is an excellent idea! And this’s how the idea came out Reuse toys.”  

The second way to save money is to wrap used toys that are probably sitting somewhere in the house because our son has forgotten them.

What gifts we should buy for babies and toddlers

As a pediatrician, I recommend all kinds of toys that help motor development such as sitting, walking, running, catching objects, hitting objects, jumping, among others.

Other excellent toys for babies and toddlers are those who help the sense of sight and hearing. Therefore, all toys that have music, sounds, vocabulary, and colors are perfect.

Here are some examples of toys you can get for your child according to his/her age; I hope it helps.
