Best Gifts for Baby Girls

Verywell Family / Sabrina Jiang

From the adorable outfits to fun toys, shopping for gifts for baby girls is nothing short of exciting. Whether it's your own baby girl or you're simply buying for one, check out these gifts: They’re all sweet, useful, thoughtful, and durable.

Reviewed & Approved

The Custom Catch Personalized Baby Blanket is a soft, durable blanket that can be personalized with baby's name and birthday for a special touch. For a budget-friendly gift, we recommend the “A Is for Awesome!: 23 Iconic Women Who Changed the World” Board Book.

Consider the age recommendations for the gift you’re buying, as one gift may be safe for a 9-month-old baby but not a 3-month-old. Additionally, opt for thoughtful gifts that can be personalized or ones that will double as a keepsake. We carefully looked at age recommendations, design, toy safety, usefulness, value, and longevity when reviewing products.

Here are the best gifts for baby girls.

How We Selected the Best Gifts for Baby Girls

We chose the best gifts for baby girls by studying the design and features of more than 50 products on the market and researching reviews from customers and competitors. Additionally, we monitored shopping trends to bring you the best and most up-to-date offerings on gifts for baby girls. We considered toy safety, age recommendations, ease of use, design, size, features, and value when reviewing products.

What to Look for When Buying Gifts for Baby Girls

Age Appropriate

It’s no secret babies develop at a rapid speed during their first year of life. Keep in mind, however, that an appropriate gift for an 11-month-old may not help a 3-month-old achieve vital milestones. (Citation: CDC. What is a developmental milestone? Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.)

This is why it’s very important to take age recommendations on baby products seriously. Regardless of age, products should be safe for the baby to put in her mouth and should not have any small parts that could be choking hazards. Also, keep safe sleep recommendations in mind if you plan on purchasing a sleeper, bouncer, or carrier to ensure there are no suffocation risks.

Usefulness

Throughout their first year of life, babies need a lot of things that parents and caregivers have to purchase. So consider gifting the baby something that the adults will find useful, like the Fisher-Price On-the-Go Baby Dome that doubles as a bassinet and play area. Additionally, opt for presents that grow with a child, such as toys, clothes in multiple sizes, teethers, and sleepsacks. 

Overall, think of the basic things you do every day, like shower, sleep, and eat, and look for baby products that will help a parent or caregiver do these things with their child—this way, chances are high they will be very useful for the parents (and maybe fun for the baby, too).

Longevity

If you’re looking for something that has longevity, consider gifts that will last for years. Give parents, caregivers, and baby an item that will be used well into the toddler years and beyond, like the Hatch Rest Smart Sound Machine. Other gifts with longevity include keepsakes like a baby book, handprint stone, or journal.
