Xmas Gifts for 3 month-old?

How do you handle buying for a very young baby for Christmas? What gifts do you get, or do you get gifts? I am at a loss. Thanks for any ideas!

Next size in clothes is always great. Or rattle type toys or plush toys.

Soft books, bath toys, plush animals a new lovey a babydoll that is soft and small so she can hold. Rattles, noise makers, new hairbows, paci's if she takes them.

We've got a fresh one in the family this year, I plan on making her a stocking with her name on it and getting her parents a voucher so she can have her hand prints done in clay. I'd buy clothes but my MIL loves shopping for clothes, we've barely bought any for our son (maybe a coat and a few tees we really loved).

We do an heirloom blanket for our littles at Xmas. Other ideas are teethers, sleepers, rattles etc.

We didn't really get any Xmas gifts for our DD when she was 3 months old at her first Christmas-- just a couple of cute outfits and some new shoes in the next size up. Wrap them up and take photos of her beside them for the baby book. That's about it!

If gifts are important in your family (they aren't in ours), then some toys or entertainment that are good for your DD's upcoming developmental stages would be good. Ideas based on what our own DD really loved at that age:

1.) a good tummy time mirror. Something like this one, but see if you can find one for cheaper!

2.) A taggies-type blanket or toy with lots of different textures.

3.) A jumperoo. Feel free to get on craigslist or a consignment store. These have a REALLY good resale value used. We bought ours used for $45 and resold for $35 within a couple of days after listing.

4.) A baby gym or floor activity center if you don't already have one.

We just got her clothes or things she needed anyway and wrapped them. She was 9 months last Christmas and had no clue what was going on anyway. She was more interested in the wrapping paper.

For my 7 month olds I got babylegs. I do not plan on getting much else bc they will be getting things from family plus we already have toys from ODS. I just wanted to make sure they get something so my oDS and niece don't think that Santa forgot them.

I always sprang for those really cute, but pricey diapers that I wouldn't normally buy. Usually the nice, embroidered ones. Maybe some longies.
