Maybe your baby is too young to rip open the wrapping paper or maybe they will rip the wrapping and love the box. I remember my babies who were about 7 or 8 months on their first Christmas always did that. They would open one gift and then want to play with that and nothing else. One year we were unwrapping their presents into January. It can be overwhelming for little ones and it is okay to pace the presents. If you are wondering what would be the best kind of gifts to buy, I have some suggestions to share.
