If you are in your late 20s or 30s you are probably going to numerous weddings and baby showers. They come in waves. All my husband’s friends are finally getting married, so we’re on that wedding wave (although I wish we could fly to all of them!), and my friends are all having babies (or are on their second).
Lately it’s been baby baby baby. I’m the type of person who likes to go off the registry (although I do think it’s very important for most people to stick to the registry and I do if I don’t know the person very well). But I like to give the surprise gifts that the mom loves and maybe wouldn’t find on her own. Although Sophie the giraffe is now super popular — I’ve heard moms that say they like to have multiple of them because kids love them so much and help with teething (which is when babies constantly cry!).
If you want to give a simple yet luxurious gift, baby moccasins are the way to go. I’ve heard these ones actually stay on little baby feet and the patterns and colors are beyond. I’m partial to the rose gold, but cannot help thinking how cute these watermelon ones would be for a summer baby!
Because babies and kids are so messy, they end getting changed multiple times a day (or so I’ve heard). So I don’t know that a mom can ever have enough leggings. These cool triangle leggings go up to 4T!
I love clouds for a baby nursery. They are unisex and dreamy. This black & white striped soft cloud pillow would be cute in the crib. I also have a few gold ceramic cloud sets that hang on the wall left in my shop.
My niece and nephews are all water babies. They love to swim so all sorts of swim gear is needed. If you know the baby will be a water baby these reusable swim diapers are the cutest.
For a little boho baby these baby harem pants are perfect and super unique. They go up to 4T so you can get some for big brother or sister as well.
After seeing a friend of mine receive this gift at a baby shower and everyone proceeded to freak out over it, I give it to almost everyone (sorry to ruin the surprise to all of my friends having babies in the future). But it’s just to coolest wood teether & clutching toy that also looks great on a bookshelf.
One of my favorite gifts to give is Howdy Bouncer Rubber Cow or Rody Horse (in a nursery color of course). And I always bring it already blown up to make the full impact. Most people are like, what the heck is that thing, but literally when you put it on the floor it’s like a kid magnet. They immediately sit on it and start bouncing. But they usually get a little excited and fall off, so have them steer clear of sharp coffee table corners and fire places. Maybe add a baby helmet?
And no, I am not pregnant. Someone recently asked me for unique baby gift ideas, and I thought — might as well share them with everyone!
Do you give any specific baby gifts that moms love?
