It’s still raining spring showers.. baby showers that is! Baby showers are in full bloom this spring and the new mama n’ papa deserves gifts that they’ll adore and appreciate. If you’re anything like us – the idea of buying another onesie is a real snore, but we don’t always have time to research the hottest in baby gifts. Get her these unusual and out of the box gifts and she’ll think of you every time she uses it!
I never swaddled any of my 3 kids, but most (like 99%) of my parent friends couldn’t have lived without a constant newborn swaddling situation. The award-winning Ollie Swaddle is like no other swaddle – it has elasticity that allows for freedom of movement, and we hear the opening at the bottom makes it easy to change diapers – plus custom developed moisture-wicking material which makes this a very unique swaddle.
Doona Carseat Stroller
A car seat that flips straight into a stroller is a must for a traveling family on the go. This is on our wish list!
You’ve heard us go crazy for the NuRoo babywearing shirt before, now they have this amazing nursing scarf which can do endless things that makes on-the-go nursing without creepy gawkers a snap!
Stokke Flexi Bath
Perfect for city dwellers, the new Stokke Flexi Bath is a foldable bathtub, free from phthalates, BPA and harmful substances. It folds into a tiny sliver, perfect for that sweet space between the tub and your sink. It’s simple, modern design will be appreciated.
Baby DeeDee Sleep Kicker
Parents love getting down-the-line gifts.. meaning items that aren’t just useful for the first few months (note to new parents: appreciate those size 2t gifts, s/he’ll be in them before you can snap your fingers! The baby deedee sleep kicker is perfect for children who kick off their covers at night. Made from outrageously soft and cozy high quality polyester fleece, this sleep sack with feet will keep your active sleeper toasty throughout the night. My kids are insanely in love with this onesie. My big boy won’t dress himself at night in anything but this! Parents are often unlikely to buy the higher-end pj’s (anything over $20) for themselves, so this will be a treat they will appreciate!
One thing new parents often to forget to stock up on before the big reveal, and can never have enough of, is baby-safe plant-based, paraben-free shampoos, detergent, and hand cleaners/ sanitizers. We go through an outlandish amount of Babyganics hand sanitizer in our house. They’ve just revealed a cute Babyganics Baby-Safe World Essentials Gift Set that is housed in a cute reusable fabric cube which any new parent would appreciate, and few would be thoughtful enough to gift.
Cord Blood Storage
For the big players only (this isn’t a cheap endeavor) Stem Stell Storage is something most parents choose to do these days (stem cell and blood storage can save your child/ baby/ adult child’s life – example; The Mayo Clinic has launched a breakthrough stem cell clinical trial for babies born with heart defects. This study is hoping to use the baby’s own cord blood stem cells to strengthen an underdeveloped heart and possibly prevent transplants.) Cord blood, which contains powerful stem cells, comes from a newborn’s umbilical cord and is collected immediately after birth. Once the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut, the remaining blood in the umbilical cord is drawn into a collection bag. Offer this gift at the baby shower (definitely before the baby is born) so she can register with CBR and have her kit when going to the hospital.

There’s something about this modern-day redesign of the traditional Indian godhri that our babies are crazy for. We’ve talked about the Godee before, but using it currently with my third baby, I must rave again. Plus it makes for the most unsual baby gift! My little man simply falls into complete comfort when in this deliciously soft blanket that can open for tummy time, changing, or breastfeeding.
