Holiday shopping isn't always a breeze. Your picky sister-in-law returned your last. three. gifts. And what, exactly, is an appropriate present for your boss? But, there's one category of holiday shopping that's way more adorable than it is annoying, and that's picking out cute, cuddly, and totally coo-worthy gifts for babies.
The little gift recipients will generally smile and gurgle at anything you get them. And, even if they're too young to tear off the wrapping paper themselves, their parents will light up when they see what's inside the package. Here are 11 baby gifts that will make any teeny recipient squeal.
Cashmere Baby Blanket
Your bestie's baby only deserves the best — and a stroller or car seat lined in cashmere is basically the Cadillac of baby rides. Plus, mom can borrow the blanket for a quick nap when baby's not looking. A nap, after all, is a new parent's dream gift.
Plush Gift Basket
A plush bunny is just the start of cozy goodies in this luxurious-but-useful basket. There's also a satin pillow, an infant robe, a burp cloth, receiving and security blankets, and more. But our favorite item in the bundle: a hooded towel with a rubber duckie!
Bunny Felt Baby Slippers
Fact: baby can never have too many bunnies. And, these adorable slippers will make his first-steps attempts even cuter. Made of recycled sweaters, the booties will also keep his little feet toasty through the winter.
Personalized Goodnight Book
Nothing beats a bedtime story — unless that story is personalized with the sleepy little one's name. The name of your gift recipient will appear on the cover, in the text, and even in the whimsical illustrations.
Organic Cotton Teethers Veggie Crate
We're pretty sure this is the cutest-ever way to get baby hooked on healthy veggies. Bonus: the plush produce is machine-washable.
Rainbow Sound Blocks
Who doesn't love a rainbow? Plus, the colorful toy is a puzzle, a musical toy, and a sculpture all in one. Or, baby can just use the individual blocks as chic little rattles. There's nothing more perfect for the budding modern-art lover — is anyone else getting Mondrian vibes?
Arctic-Print Cotton Snowsuit
Baby's first snowsuit wouldn't be complete without a hood that has bear ears, and this warm little getup checks that box. And, its penguin print just couldn't be cuter.
Animal Ears Headband Kit
Why stop at bear ears? This dress-up kit also has bunny, mouse, and lamb ears, little deer antlers, and a sweet daisy headband. The possibilities for playtime are endless — and this will give the babe a head start on her Easter outfit or Halloween costume.
Butterfly Mini Ballet Flats
Every little Nutcracker fan needs a pair of these Sophia Webster ballet slippers. And, they'd be terribly posh at a princess-theme tea party. Just one question: Do they make these in our size?
Unicorn Stuffed Animal
There's nothing like a soft, cuddly unicorn to make bedtime all the more magical.
Pink Flamingo Mobile
Every nursery could use a pop of summer vacation — especially in the wintertime. This will transport baby to a place under the palm trees, filled with pink clouds and flamingos.
