Gifts for Baby

A few of my friends are expecting their first babies, so this post couldn’t have come at a better time. I love baby shopping (and even more now that I’m a mother!) There’s just something about all the mini clothes out there and the cute nursery décor; it really is the best.

When shopping for wee ones, I tend to keep things pretty neutral and unique. I try to think of something that the parents wouldn’t normally purchase, since those were my favorite gifts at my baby shower. Below I’ve gathered ten items for a baby girl and a baby boy that any parent would be thrilled to have for their newborn.
