Whether you're filling out your own registry or shopping for a soon-to-be-mama in your life, it can be hard to narrow down what exactly new moms need (versus what will just end up cluttering the nursery). That's why we paired up with the baby gear experts at Pottery Barn Kids to create a registry guide featuring everything from the gear you'll use over and over to the perfect gifts under $50.
Check out the picks below, and happy shopping (and registering)!
MUST-HAVE BABY GEAR
These five gift ideas are designed to make #momlife easier while solving some of the most common parenting dilemmas.
2. Nuna SENA Mini Playard
Be it a sleepover at grandma's or a spontaneous nap when you're on the go, you never know when a playard will come in handy. That's what makes the Nuna SENA Mini Playard so perfect. The lightweight design is easy to bring along in the car, and the triple-layered (and machine washable!) mesh mattress is designed for a comfortable rest.
GIFTS THAT CAN BE PERSONALIZED
Even the most utilitarian gift feels a little more special with some personalization. Here are some of our favorite options that can be customized with baby's name or monogram.
1. Nursery Blankets
You'll never forget the blanket you bring your newborn home in. And with Pottery Barn Kids' assortment of blankets, there's a wrap to suit every new mama's style. Choose from fuzzy neutral patterns or stylish printed options, and add baby's name for an extra personal touch.
GIFTS THAT GROW WITH THEM
Save money and space by gifting items that will last long after baby's first year. These clever gift items will have mama saying "thank you!" for years to come.
1. west elm x pbk Mid-Century Convertible Crib
A convertible crib is an investment in years of sweet dreams. We love this mid-century-style option made from sustainably sourced wood with child-safe, water-based finishes. When your baby outgrows their crib (sniff!), it easily converts into a toddler bed with the matching conversion kit.
GIFTS UNDER $50
Sometimes the littlest gifts mean the most. Here are our favorite gifts under $50 they'll be sure to cherish.
1. west elm x pbk Dot Muslin Swaddle Set
When you're raising a newborn, you can never have too many swaddles. Perfect for naptime, burp cloths, stroller covers, and spontaneous play mats, a muslin swaddle will always come in handy. And we especially love this neutral patterned collection in platinum, nightshade, and peacock.
