Now, I know when it comes to 2014 Holiday Gift Guide for Babies they are a dime a dozen. However, the items in this post are unique and truly wonderful gifts for any baby and to give parents peace of mind. 2014 has flew by in the blink of an eye. If you’re unsure what to get the babies in your life, check out my fave 8 items below. Yes, I own all of them and truly think they are amazing. My niece absolutely loves her Joovy Qool and my son absolutely loves the Mama Koala & Baby Koala that keeps babies happy so they sleep at night. I personally love the Digital Baby Monitor and Car Seat. I’m all about safety. I think some fun toys are the HABA rocking horse swing and the HABA Color Fun Walker Wagon which can help your little one learn to walk.

All Moover toys are crafted from sustainable sources with today’s environmentally friendly, green or crunchy parents in mind. You assemble quickly and easily with the “click key system” without the use of any tools. Use coupon code FAVEMOM15 for 15% off.

Wolf Hand Puppet & 3 Little Pigs

HABAUSA.com, $64.99

Lilliputiens are genius when it comes to taking a tale as old as the hills and making it modern day relevant. It is a parable about being courageous. This is a story you can tell to your little children over and over again to help them overcome their fears and learn to be brave. The three little pigs (finger puppets) in their little house defy the odds against them as they beat the big bad wolf (hand puppet). Once done with your story you can neatly store the 3 houses and matching piglets inside the wolf. This stimulates the imagination and awakens the senses with bright colors and contrasting materials. Use promo code FAVEMOM15 for 15% off this big bad wolf. ;)

Tabletop Puppet Theater and Toy Shop

HABAUSA.com, $129.99

How many parents TRULY wish they could tell their children to use their imagination and be creative? I do on a regular basis. So often in today’s overly stimulated environment it is too easy to tell a child to watch TV or play a video game. Let’s have them create a play that we can watch. This toy is two toys in one. You can open up the shop or let the curtains down for a puppet theatre. Converts from a theatre to a toy shop in a matter of seconds. If you want to buy some hand puppets, HABA has plenty of those available to purchase as well. Use promo code FAVEMOM15 for 15% off your purchase.
