Gals, a friend just asked me for my baby gift ideas, and so I just cut and pasted my email back to her here. I know I have written about this in the past, but the list is a bit longer, more comprehensive, and features some of our bloggers here...so if you need ideas for a fun and unique baby gift...check it out.
Well, I always give this crib blanket from spongy feet...it's my fave baby gift right now.
I also love the gift of books. And if the baby is from a certain city, say Chicago, I would put together these books for a gift:
Dragon of Navy Pier
night before christmas in chicago
you get the idea....
or you could just get all the sandra boynton board books because they are a hit.
The peanut shell is a fun gift, but you have to make sure it is sized correctly...you can always just provide her with the receipt, they have really great return policies.
The warmsie is another gift that friends of mine do for very cold climates....good long johns...
for something TRULY unique, you need to shop etsy.com. Just search baby and you will have TONS to choose from.
This dine n doodle is more for a toddler, but such a great idea, and a cute gift-topper.
crochet hats for the newborn and the new mom gift to match
Baby leg warmers would be such a fun gift, something mom might not buy on her own. These are especially good for baby's born with hip displasia who have to wear a brace (getting pretty common these days, 2 of my friends baby's had it last year), then you can put these on to warm their little leggies...
My FAVE baby socks are trumpette...the site is just crazy cute. The new maryjane rainboots? STOP.
I love these hats. And for that one friend who will get it, I love THIS hat for babies.
