Baby shower gifts can often be difficult to select, especially if the mom-to-be has decided to refrain from setting up a registry or if most of the items on the registry have already been purchased. Even if we purchase items off of the baby registry, we both agree that it is fun to also include additional gifts that will be a surprise. We are featuring some of our favorite baby gifts today.
Lisa and Eric Greenwald founded the company known as Chewbeads. Their concept was simple…create non-toxic yet fashionable jewelry for moms with teething babies. Lisa had noticed that her son loved to put whichever necklace she was wearing into his mouth. She decided that there was a need for necklaces and bracelets that look stylish but can also be safely chewed-on by babies. The line has expanded and now also includes teething rings and teething toys. Click here to peruse their products…
Another favorite gift are the insanely adorable Freshly Picked moccasins. We are in love with all of the different colors available. They are a great gift because they are designed to fit on babies little feet with ease. The have elastic around the opening and this allows for a nice stretch so you don’t have to struggle to pull the moccasin onto the foot. Seriously, how cute are these little shoes?!

Boogie Wipes are a great idea to throw in for the mom-to-be. They are super gentle saline wipes that help to combat irritation around a baby (or child’s) nose when suffering from a cold. The special formula reduces redness and soreness when a baby’s nose needs to be wiped repeatedly. It is a practical gift that will serve moms and babies well.
A great go-to gift for babies is the Wubbanub. The Wubbanub is a pacifier that is directly attached to a plush toy. This item was also created by a mom who saw the need for such a product. She was continually searching for the pacifier that her infant had fallen out of her infant’s mouth. Of course, often time the pacifier would roll onto the floor and need to be sanitized. Often times, it seemed to vanish into thin air. By sewing a small toy to the pacificer, it provided something for her infant to grip onto, thus making it easier for them to manipulate the pacifier back into their own mouth. The weight of the stuffed animal helps to keep the pacifier from falling off the infant’s chest. Several of our “Mom Friends” have confirmed that these work really well. There are several animals to choose from but here are two of our favorites!
Another fun baby gift are the creative socks made by Trumpette. They offer a vast variety of cute socks that look like shoes. Here are some of our favorites…
We can’t help but smile when we see a baby bundled up in a sweet animal hooded towel. Pottery Barn kids has several different animal options that are ridiculously cute and really soft.
Another idea is to purchase a gift for the mom-to-be so that she can feel pampered. Mama Mio is a fantastic skin care line that caters to pregnant women. Being pregnant myself, I (Lindsey) have used the face wash, the facial moisturizer and their Tummy Rub Butter and their energizing leg gel called Lucky Legs. When I first found out that I was expecting, I struggled to find a skin care line that was considered “safe” for pregnancy. This line has been wonderful. I highly recommend purchasing the products for expecting moms as a nice gift for them. My favorite product is Lucky Legs. It creates a tingling sensation and soothes legs after a long day or walking or standing while carrying the added weight of a baby bump.
Sly Fox Threads is a super cool company that makes hip baby and children’s clothing. Their items are perfect baby gifts because their clothing is unlike what you can find in most stores. They have some fun onesies and t-shirts as well as fashionable accessories for little ones. Check out their website here.
