When it comes to gifting the under one crowd, it doesn’t have to be huge, flashy or expensive. A little thought goes a long way. We love these gift ideas for babies — they’re soft, sweet and memorable.
“Taxi!!” Your little one will be ready to hail a cab in no time with this NY-taxi inspired rattle. This handmade, organic toy is sure to grab your babe’s attention (and hold it too!) — the perfect gift for a newborn baby.
A Baby Doll That Gives Back
Cuddle + Kind Dolls ~ $55+
If you’re on the hunt for your little one’s forever lovey, Cuddle + Kind is another option that gives back. For every doll purchased, the brand provides 10 meals to children in America and across the world. We also love that each one comes with a back story. So cute!
Bears for Humanity ~ $25+
These sherpa bears are oh so cozy and huggable. Plus, they’re hand sewn, hypoallergenic, and made from 100% GOTS Certified organic cotton; and for every bear sold, the brand sends a Teddy to a child in need. ❤️
Janod Shape Sorter ~ $27
With the Janod shape sorter, baby can develop essential motor skills while having fun. We particularly love the soft colors and animal cut-outs — a cute departure from the more traditional geometrical shapes.
Keep your new bundle cozy with this swaddle set from Monica & Andy. Soft as a cloud, it will be the next best thing to cuddling skin-to-skin. Plus, what’s more delicious than bacon, pancakes and eggs on a baby!? 😋😍
Lovevery Play Mat ~ $140
This play gym is not only beautiful and minimalist (aka not an eyesore that you’ll want to tuck away every day), it offers tons of developmental activities and grows with your child for an entire year. Bonus points: you can even convert it into a makeshift fort once your child is older!
Personalized Name Puzzle ~ $varies
These custom name puzzles have it all: they’re pretty and unique, they make children feel special, and they’re a great tool to develop hand-eye coordination and letter recognition.
UGG Bixbee Booties ~ $35
With their faux-fur look, these cute-as-a-button booties from UGG are sure to keep your little one’s toes nice and toasty all winter long.
Want to see your baby smile? Get her a push toy she can cruise around the living room with. The activity panel — with the twisting cubes, the snail wire beed maze and more — is sure to keep her entertained.
This Musical Llama isn’t just cute — it’s packed with musical activities. From the xylophone to clacking saddle blankets that double as drums, your wee one will be a one-person band in the making.
Desert Boho Mobiles Play Gym ~ $67+
Add a peaceful vibe to your baby’s playroom. This wooden play gym with earthy-toned mobiles will bring so much joy to your little and is sure to titillate his senses.
Runner up: Finn & Emma Play Gym ~ $69+
This play gym wooden frame by Finn & Emma is adjustable in height, so it can grow with your little one. We love how minimalist it is, though you do have to buy the plush toys separately.
Teething is tough, so let’s just… roll with it. Loulou Lollipop makes super cute silicone teethers that are sure to bring relief (and smiles) to your little one. We are in love with this shrimp sushi option.
