motherhood, the boys

the one with gift ideas for a new baby

I have all things baby on the brain considering I’m 700 years pregnant. I have some friends that are pregnant as well. As  soon as Ben is here I won’t have any time to think about gift ideas for these friends or for Jack’s Easter basket. So I wanted to share my favorite gift ideas for a new baby as well as a favorite shop of mine.

If you’re giving gifts after the baby is here, chances are mom and dad have most things they need. So I like to take this opportunity to just give all the cuteness. For me that’s where my favorite shop, Picket Fence comes in! They have cute pjs, cute pillows for the nursery, cuddle and kind dolls, and these adorable name trains! I’ve already ordered the trains for each boys Easter basket!

Another way to go is stuff for mom! A nursing cover, a nap, a meal, a nap, a clean house, a nap are all good and easy options.

My husband and I when all else fails have our top three that we give all new parents! Aden and Anais swaddles, Sophie, and The Happiest Baby on the Block. Even if the baby doesn’t like a full swaddles these blankets are good for everything- nursing cover, car seat cover, play blanket, etc. Sophie was Jacks favorite toy! And this book helped us get through a rough couple weeks and after Jack was so happy and a pretty easy baby! 


Ready for some great news! The Picket Fence is offering one of you a $50 gift code! just enter below, and I’ll announce the winner next week!
