When it comes to giving gifts for newborns, it can be tough to find the perfect present. After all, your littlest love can't create their own wishlist. I'll be honest and say that some of these are mostly for parents of newborns because they make life with a tiny one much easier, but others are legit products that my kid was obsessed with when he was a tiny peanut.
Get ready to shop all these adorable gifts for newborns:
Adorable crib sheets from Rookie Humans
These sheets will surely bring about sweet dreams. They come in different settings and believe me when I tell you your little baby will look adorable snoozing next to such beautiful designs. These are game-changing for all those newborn pics you're gonna be posting on Instagram.
A chic sleep gown
These Goumi Kids sleep gowns are super stylish in solid and neutral colors. Gowns are ideal for newborns because there will be a lot of diaper changing happening in the middle of the night, and these allow you to keep baby's feet covered while having easy access to their diaper. They are *super soft* and made of a breathable fabric.
Cashmere hat + mittens
If you want to give a luxe gift, these Jack & Mary cashmere hat and mittens are extra extra soft and so adorable. They are made in Maine with tons of love, which shows in the final product and packaging.
A ring sling to carry baby around
Babywearing is excellent for so many reasons: bonding with mama or dad, keeping your hands free and making sure that baby's staying nice and cozy. These wraps are designed for babies that are eight pounds or heavier.
One of the first soothing reflexes newborns have is sucking, so if your baby is into their hands, bibs or your knuckles, these pacifiers might help. They are designed to support baby's breathing and allow for proper tongue placement.
These adorable animal friends
This colorful toy is good for little ones to start discovering their motor skills and also play peek-a-boo with the cute animals. My son has had it since birth and the way he interacts with the toy changes as he grows older (it's so fascinating to see).
A carseat cocoon for cold weather
This carseat cocoon will keep your little tiny one super comfortable during the coldest months of the year without interfering with the safety of their car seat. The cocoon is placed over the car seat and can even be used when clicked onto a stroller. Bonus: They come in several different stylish colors. 🙌
Fun flash cards
I didn't even know these existed until my neighbor gifted me hers! They help support baby's eye development as they start to discern between the white and black colors, and it's also super fun for them to explore new images. My son, even though he is way into toddlerhood now, still loves to play with his flashcards and name the animals.
A playmat to keep them busy
This play gym is versatile as it's built for babies to grow with it. Initially it's great for putting your newborn down in a safe space, but then it can turn into the best tummy time mat ever. As they sit up on their own they love playing with the different toys. Plus, the beautiful design means you won't mind it having a permanent place in your living room.
A baby journal
What better gift to leave your children than the raw and real memories from when they were tiny? These journals go from birth until 5 years old and invite parents to share the big and little moments of every day life with children.
Really stylish onesies
The prints of the Apple Park onesies are almost too cute to handle. Honestly, I kind of want all of them in my size. They make several products with the same print so you can have your little one rocking a head to toe matching outfit.
A sloth friend
This sloth is not only adorable, but also organic and super soft. Your little one can hang out with their new friend on their play mat or keep it in their stroller as they take the whole world in.
Silicone baby teethers
There are so many things we love about this set of teethers. It comes with six different fruit shapes and is the perfect size for your newborn's tiny hands. They're made with a gentle, but sturdy, food-grade silicone that offer baby relief when they're cutting their teeth and they're dishwasher safe. Win win win.
A booster seat that grows with baby
You'll be using this one for a while mama. At first, it's a good place to put baby as they learn to sit up by themselves and keep them entertained with a bunch of activities on it. As they grow, you can turn the seat into a dining booster seat for your little one to join you at the table. Plus, it's under $50!
A super mega cozy blanket
This super high-quality blanket from max + moose is ideal to have handy wherever you go with your baby. It's perfect for them to play on while you prepare dinner for the rest of the family, or to keep their feet warm and toasty while you stroll around the park. The quality is superb, so chic and well-made.
An innovative swaddle
Repeat after me: Swaddles are magic. All kidding aside, newborns love being swaddled because it reminds them of being inside the womb (that's why in hospitals they give your baby tightly wrapped like a burrito). This one will help them feel cozy and safe while also allowing them to freely move their hands inside. We love that once they are ready to go arms out, they can.
An adorable lovey
Newborns shouldn't sleep with anything near them for safety reasons, but you can have this lovey around for play time or trips in the stroller while supervised. Once they are 6 months old, you can start introducing them to the lovey at nap times and bedtime. But in the meantime, it's a super cute product to play peek-a-boo with.
A baby dome to take your baby on all the adventures
This baby dome allows you to take your baby wherever you go (and keep them safe). The side mesh allows air to flow through to keep them comfortable, the dome itself is SPF 50 and the flat surface makes it safe for sleep. Even better, it folds up for storage. We've used it everywhere from the park to the beach to our living room to keep our dogs away from our baby.
