The Fashion Magpie Holiday Gift Ideas for Babies

Minimagpie’s Christmas List.

For the past few days, when I am putting mini to bed, she will finish her bottle, smack her lips, and then — often with her eyes closed, on the brink of sleep — reach her arms out for me.  I pick her up and she nestles her head onto my shoulder, heaves a deep sigh, and promptly falls asleep.

It kills me.

I think that Santa will look kindly on this little babe this Christmas.

It’s been a lot of fun shopping for her for the holiday.  Below are some amazing items I’d love her to see under the tree — click on the image to be taken to details!

Christmas Gift Ideas for Minis

A couple of notes:
+Thank you to my readers for writing in on this post — I would love to buy mini a classic Corolle baby doll (Corolle is a French toy line that has been around since 1979), but she’s a little young/small for one right now.  Thanks to a reader, I discovered Corolle Minis!  I’ll be buying this one for mini for Christmas.  Every girl needs a babydoll!


+Speaking of epic, not shown above, but one of the best gifts I recall receiving as a child was a dollhouse.  This one is amazing.

+I saw this Clara doll from the Nutcracker and DIED.  I ordered it on the spot.  I think I’ll save it for a few years down the road, when I take mini to the Nutcracker for the first time.  SO ADORABLE.

A couple of other Christmas gift ideas for the minis in your life — this time more gender-neutral, and several of them TRES over the top:

Christmas Gift Ideas for Little Boys

Some notes:

+I love those funky Raskullz kids helmets.  So fun for a kiddo!  For a little girl, I’m dying over this Hello Kitty helmet.  Was anyone else obsessed with Hello Kitty?

+These pretend stainless steel pots and pans are hilarious.  So bougee: “Check out my child’s faux All Clad pots.  If only they came in a copper color as well, so we could replicate that Mauviel life.”  HA!  But seriously, they get very, very good reviews.  Now you just need this ridiculous play kitchen, which is nicer than any kitchen I’ve ever owned, farmhouse sink, brass hardware, and Viking-style range included.  Very…ambient style, n’est-ce pas?!?!?!

+I didn’t include one of these in the collage above, but anything from Radio Flyer — like this timeless wagon — is bound to be a hit.  Last year, we bought our godson this Radio Flyer ride-on rocket (no longer available, but this is similar), and he loved it!

Christmas Jammies

Finally, it’s not too late to order Christmas jammies for your babies!  Below, a few of my favorite picks, at all different pricepoints:

+WALLET FRIENDLY (UNDER $15): Old Navy has some seriously cute holiday print jammies right now — I love this dog print and this string light print, but this striped pair replicates the Hanna Andersson striped jammie look that everyone and their mom owns (but for way less!)

+ADORABLE AND MODERATELY PRICED (UNDER $30): These fair-isle print ones or this darling retro-print one, which I had monogrammed for mini!

+SPLURGE: These precious Roberta Roller Rabbit ones, any of these Hanna jams, these candy cane printed ones (also monogrammable!), and anything from Beaufort Bonnet Company.



  1. Santa gave me a Corolle babydoll when I was 18 months old and it was my most favorite gift ever! Hope mini loves hers 🙂

    I love Hanna Andersson’s pajamas and kind of want a pair for myself!

  2. Pottery Barn Kids now has mini Le Creuset sets for play kitchens. It just kills me. (And you bet I’ll be getting some when the baby is of age.)

    The mini Corolle came today and it’s just too cute, I want to give it to the baby before Christmas!!

    1. OMG, those little kitchen sets are TOO GOOD. My mini corolle was shipped straight to my parents’ in DC, where we’ll be spending Christmas, and I can’t wait to see it 🙂
