toddlers love everything soft, colorfull and it has to give a sound. My nephew is 4 month now and he loves to grab for stuff like that.

Just sew some red cotton-fabric together since they can see that best, fill it with fillfiber and add a small bell inside.
The toy is washable and it even doesn't need a special form since it doesn't matter to them.

I've got two 3 monthers this chrstmas!  I've been considering...
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=64624.0 (maybe too much work)

Also been considering stuffed blocks with the letter's of their name embroidered on each one, (With the bell idea mentioned in the last post).  Also wondering how long it might take to crochet a baby blanket.  If I did that, I would include a "travel taggie blankie"  Just a square with crinkly sound inside with the ribbon tags around each edge with the baby links for the stroller, the square would be the size of maybe a potholder.

I still haven't decided.  In total I have about 15 gifts to craft in only 5 weeks!!!  Currently I am working on a crocheted bunny for someone else, so I don't have to decide yet. (hey, that could work too...

Basically, whichever one is quickest!!!!

Every idea has been spawned from Craftster.  I surf this place religiously!  I'm on here more than FACEBOOK!  I love it here~!

My daughther will be 3 months at Chirstmas time too!  My son is 4 and my mom made him a "taggie blanket" that he still loves (he carries it almost everywhere - Just like Linus).  It's made from fleece and finished with quilt binding.  My mom sewed loops of different kinds of ribbon around the border into the quilt binding.  My son's favorites are the sheer ones - he loves to rub them together.  He used to do this to my clothing while I was nursing him and when I stopped he replaced me with Taggie (that's the balnket's name).  She made one for my daughter who is too young to love it yet (they only really love their parents at this point) but I'm hoping she'll love it as much as her brother loves his.  It's really easy to make and not very expensive.  It's about 18 inches square, but my mom also made a bunch of smaller ones (some 9 inches square and some 9 inches by 4 inches) for my son so he would have extras.  What's really nice is that there are tons to fleece fabrics available so you can really personalize it.

My god-daughter will be almost 3 months, I think, by Christmas, and I already bought her gift. Since she is so small, and doesn't really need ANYTHING (first child and first grandbaby on one side), I just got her this cute little Christmas tree ornament in the shape of a rubber ducky. I threw the baby shower, and EVERYTHING was rubber ducky, including all the gifts for her, and so that's kinda like my thing with her now. I know she won't really have any idea what it is, or that she even got it, but will probably appreciate it more later, in years to come. *shrugs*

Mrs. Lewis - that's a great idea!  Close friends of our family gave me and my sister an ornament every year until we were 16 and I cherish them.  I now purchase an ornament every year that's meaningful and buy them on vacations. My kids, plus my niece and nephews, get one every year.  I love to pull mine out and remember them from when I was a kid, plus look at the ones I've collected since.  She'll love it.  Be sure to put the year on the bottom so she'll know when she got it and to keep giving her one.  She'll cherish them as an adult.
