Scenario: I have absolutely no experience with infants or very young childs. In fact, I never had closer contact with them yet. But now …
I’m becoming an uncle/aunt/godparent/close family friend, and I want to give presents to the child (and I may not often be able to see the child). But, oh help, what am I supposed to gift? I guess it would become easier for me when the child grows older, but I have no ideas for those early years.
I’m not looking for specific product recommendations, but for an outline of appropriate product categories for each child’s year.
For example, when can I start to consider picture-books? Cuddly toys right from birth on? What else is possible for a newly born child? When to start with wooden toys like toy trains? (… I hope you get the idea.)
