My Favorite Baby Gifts to Give

My cousin, Shana, just gave birth to a beautiful baby girl...sending me into my own baby bliss memories.  I love babies.  From pregnancy to birth and then through the first year of newborn joy, I relished in every minute of my three babies (and I would have one more if my hubby was willing!).

Now that my "babies" are no longer babies technically - how long can I call my three-almost-four year-old a baby...I take extra pleasure when family and friends have babies.  I enjoy gifting these newborns with extra special faves that I have discovered over the years as a mom.  Here are some of my top picks:

Baby Gear:



  • Iza Trapani's collection of board books
  • Hush Little Baby by Sylvia Long
  • Time for Bed by Mem Fox
  • I See Me personalized name books
