Gift-giving is practiced since time immemorial. Many of us started receiving gifts before we were conscious of doing so. Unbeknownst to us, they nurtured us and became our great companions growing up.
It can be puzzling to find the best gift ideas for babies, especially since they can’t explicitly communicate what they desire. So, we’ve compiled a list of 7 great gift ideas for under $25. A small gift goes a long way.
