Have you finished your Christmas shopping yet? I actually just finished mine today, and I am so happy to be done with it! Now I just have to wait for everything to be delivered, and somehow find the time to wrap everything.

Christmas shopping was really fun this year.  My 2.5 year old daughter, Kayleigh, is into so many things now – My Little Pony, Shopkins, Cars, the list goes on and on… I snagged her some really great stuff, and can’t wait to see the expression on her face when she opens it all on Christmas morning.

My son, Logan, will be 9 months in a few days.  I honestly cannot even believe he is that old.  Like, seriously, where did the time go?!  I feel like it was just yesterday that I was super pregnant and hoping that I didn’t go into labor during a snowstorm.

This is his first Christmas, and I also had some great fun shopping for him.  Below are some things that I got for him this year, and also a few things that we already have here at our house.

These toys would all make great gifts for older babies, whether it be for Christmas, a birthday, or any other occasion.

I hope you like these gift ideas as much as I do.  Have fun shopping! :) This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

Fisher-Price Laugh & Learn Puppy & Pals Learning Table ($24.52) – My mother-in-law bought this for my daughter’s 1st Christmas. She played with it all the time, and now my son has started to play with it on a daily basis. He loves being able to stand up and hold onto it for support, and he dances up and down to the music it plays. It’s so cute to watch him.
