A friend just asked me for my go to new parent gifts. She’s overdue on a few gifts and NOT a shopper. I had so much fun creating the list for her, I thought I’d post it. Hopefully a little tot out there or very tired mama will benefit.
1. Bamboo Aden and Anais swaddles. Must be bamboo. Or land of nod aden and anais swaddles. (photo via land of nod)
2. The Miracle swaddle is the best gift to give new parents. It saved us day after day. Can’t say enough about this swaddle blanket.
3. Hardcover books are always great. Here are some of Gigi’s favs.
Time for Bed by Mem Fox
Ten Tiny Babies by Karen Katz
Any of the Llama Llama books by Anna Dewdney
My friends by Taro Gomi
Brown bear, Brown Bear by Eric Carle

4. Etsy favs
Etsy has soooo many great shops. Here a few gift ideas.
The plush pillows from Woolies are really cute and good price.
If you want to spend a lot this Marimekko outdoor blanket from SewnNatural is a SICK gift that I totally want.
I’ve gotten this eco friendly play set from BannorToys for Gigi. Loved it.
These letter pillows from MableDear are personal and really fun.
Handmadepretties has lots of cute things. I got my friend a personalized ball and he really liked it. The dice are really cute too.
And lastly, what little d wants. The Philippe Starck Lou Lou Ghost chair from ylighting and other shops. She’ll grow into it!
