Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A blooming bath lotus that looks like a cute flower, but actually turns a sink into a soft and comfortable place for a bath.

    Amazon

    It's recommended for 0 to 6 months and can be washed on delicate.

    Promising review: "This item should be a must for all baby registries. This is our sixth child, and we have done everything from the infant tub to the net lounge seat, and this is by far the most amazing bathing item. Our son gets in it and instantly relaxes. It is so soft he just sinks into it. We can use it in the smallest sink in our bathroom to the biggest sink in our kitchen! It's absolutely the best purchase!!!"—Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in nine colors)

    2. An hat and mitten set parents will find trunk-ing adorable and yet practical.

    Anthropologie

    Get it from Anthropologie for $24.95 (available in elephant, lion, and cat).

    3. A splurge-worthy MamaRoo high-tech baby swing, which moves both side to side and up and down like parents do, so they can have a moment to themselves while the baby is quiet.

    Amazon

    This thing works magic! It has five motions and speeds, is Bluetooth-compatible, and has an adjustable seat recline. Recommended for newborns up to 25 lbs.

    Promising review: "My son has been using his MamaRoo since he was 4 weeks old (now 13 weeks), and he absolutely loves it! It is totally worth the price. He loves the mobile as he starts to coo and smile. He also starts to kick his little legs in excitement as he knows he’s about to be placed in it. He stays in it for quite some time, and sometimes he tends to fall asleep on his own. I'm a happy mama. :)" —Jessica

    Get it from Amazon for $229.99.

    4. A hilarious onesie that'll match their parents' style, no matter what that is.

    Etsy, Wild Fang

    Get the one on the left from IdeasByArianna on Etsy for $27.19 or the one on the right from Wild Fang for $28.

    5. A mom and baby essentials gift set filled with items they'll both use, aka the best kind of gift to give.

    Amazon

    The set includes eight Aveeno items to keep both parent's and baby's skin clean and nourished: baby wash and shampoo, Baby Daily Moisture, Baby Soothing Relief Creamy Wash, and Baby Soothing Relief Moisturizing Cream.

    Promising review: "This is a great little gift for a baby and parent. It has shampoo/body wash, lotion, moisture cream, and a small sunscreen. It comes with a cotton canvas tote to carry. It's a great product for the newest arrival. It has everything the parent needs to pamper baby. :)" —Thorn73

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    6. A pair of adorable moccasins every parent would love to open because OMG, they're just so dang cute! Now I just wish they came in my size...

    Nordstrom

    Get them from Nordstrom for $49+ (available in sizes 1-7 and in pink, brown, green, red, and more).

    7. A toothbrush and teether to stop parents from going ~bananas~ when their baby won't stop screaming while they're teething.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This is one of the greatest purchases we've made for our daughter. She loves this when she's teething and even if she's not. It's constantly in her mouth. It has been a lifesaver during a nearly constant five months of teething. We now buy one for every baby shower we go to. Not only is it amazing for teething, but you can get your kid used to brushing their teeth with it." —bphoto

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99 (available in nine colors and styles).

    8. A customized art print that will truly make the baby's room ~bloom~ with cuteness.

    Etsy

    Promising review: "This print is gorgeous! I had it printed on a wood panel for my friend's nursery, and I was so excited about the quality! I’ll definitely order another!" —ErinHatch2007

    Get it from BrunaMasalinDesign on Etsy for $8.82+ (available in 26 letters).

    9. A stroller that packs up so small it can fit in the overhead bin of a plane, to make traveling much easier.

    Amazon

    This stroller actually won a Guinness World Record in 2014 for the world's smallest folding stroller! It folds to 11.8” x 7” x 13.8” and a weights only 9.5 pounds. It's recommended for babies ages 6 months to 55 pounds.

    Promising review: "This is honestly an amazing product. It's perfect in so many ways. The size it folds to is just short of magic. I paid full price for this item, and I was not compensated for this review. I love it more than the $800 stroller I already had. Buy it, don't think twice. It's beyond worth it. I'd give 10 stars if I could. Ignore the reviews that say it doesn't fold up right. Do it 10 times as practice, and you'll have no problem. It's awesome. High five to the genius that invented it." —Dallas

    Get it from Amazon for $179.95 (available in four colors).

    10. A portable sleeping station that gives baby a cozy place to chill or sleep.

    Nordstrom

    It is recommended for ages 0 to 8 months or 5 to 22 lbs. Plus, it's machine washable.

    Promising review: "So I had heard of DockATot, but I didn’t buy one until a friend told me how much her baby loved it. It arrived shortly before our baby did, and I am so glad we had this! Our baby slept the first night in her bassinet, but after that, she wanted nothing to do with it, even with the newborn insert. During the day she was happily content in her DockATot. Well on the third night, we realized the DockATot fits IN the bassinet, and she’s slept great ever since! I love the portability of it. She can fall asleep in it on the couch, and then we just carry her in to the bedroom and place it into her bassinet, without her waking up. I would hate to imagine what our life would be like with our newborn if we didn’t have this. It is worth every penny! I will now make sure I gift this to any of my pregnant friends!" —MrsC

    Get it from Nordstrom for $185+ (available in five colors).

    11. A six-position baby carrier so parents can ~hang~ out with their babies and not worry about having to take a stroller everywhere.

    Amazon

    The baby carrier has six positions to hold your little one, including fetal, infant, outward, and toddler, hip carry, and back carry. It also has lumbar support, a zippered storage pocket, removable sleeping hood, and an extendable torso.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite structured carrier by far. It's comfortable and supportive, and the zip-down panel kept up cool in humid summer. This is also a great option for taller/bigger parents because the straps are long. I have a very small waist and I had to remove the lumbar support but it is still very comfortable." —Ashley

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in 22 colors).

    12. A play set to introduce their little athlete to the wide world of sports.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is very cute! It’s super soft and great for infants. The items are smaller and scaled to the baby. I don’t think you can really go wrong here with this purchase." —ahwang

    Get it from Nordstrom for $24.95.

    13. A SuperBib with a super-sweet pocket to help catch any food that doesn't quite make it into their mouths.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I have been using Bumpkins bibs for more than 10 years. They are exemplary! Bumpkins bibs are made from a soft, lightweight synthetic material that tucks down easily and can be washed quickly. Food does not stain them. They dry quickly from one meal to the next. The neck velcro closure allows easy on and easy off. I have raised 12 grandchildren, and Bumpkins bibs are definitely number one!" —Gail Miccio

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in 18 colors).

    14. A set of toys that'll truly make bath time a splash.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "These are so fun for bath time!!! My baby loves these and doesn’t want to get out of the bath when he has these to play with. They're also great to occupy his hands while changing his diaper." —Benbutton

    Get it from Nordstrom for $20.

    15. A "smart lights" activity mat sure to be the ~talk of the town~ (or, you know, whatever party it gets opened at).

    Amazon

    The gym includes more than 17 activities that help with development, such as hanging toys, rattle rings, ribbons, hot air balloon mirror, rattles with teethers, and more. Babies can play on their stomachs for tummy time, on their backs overhead, or sitting up.

    Promising review: "This is literally the first review I’ve ever left. I’m doing so because I am so pleased with this product! The lights and sounds are adorable and keep my newborn AWAKE, which is next to impossible right now. I can’t wait to see how she starts to interact with the included toys as she grows. Thank you, Skip Hop, for such an adorable, practical, and stylish play mat that didn’t break the bank!" —Kelton Wester

    Get it from Amazon for $80.99.

    16. An on-the-go essentials gift set for the active family that can't be slowed down, no matter how many kids they have.

    Nordstrom

    The set includes a roll-up bib and spoon set, a wipe dispenser with diaper pouch, a drying rack and bottle brush, and a snack cup. Top-rack dishwasher-safe.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $54.99.

    17. A night-light and sound machine, which will illuminate the room at night and help establish a bedtime routine so both parties get more sleep.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I received this as a gift prior to my baby being born. At the time, I wasn’t really interested in it, but I have found it to be super helpful. I love being able to control it from my phone, and I love all the different light and sound options available. I’ve found this super helpful and would recommend to other parents." —Hayley Minshull

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    18. A chic stroller blanket personalized with the baby's monogram that any ~fancy~ parents would appreciate.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is the prefect gift for a baby with everything. It can be a keepsake. It's a great investment." —Claass

    Get it from Nordstrom for $65.

    19. A travel changing station to make on-the-go diaper changes a breeze.

    Skip Hop

    Promising review: "I love this changing pad! I take it alone when I don't need a huge diaper bag. It can clip on the stroller or I can hold it like a handbag. I hold three to four diapers, diaper cream, wipes, and a onesie inside. And I put a baby food pouch, a teething cracker, a bib, and an extra pacifier in the outer zipper. I stuff it, and it still fits perfectly in my bag or just carrying it." —SA3

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in 13 colors).

    20. A scratch-off poster of 100 kids books that will be a fun gift for years to come as little ones get older and can start scratching off books themselves.

    Uncommon Goods

    Promising review: "This poster is quite charming and will work as a gift for a young child for Christmas. It encourages reading and takes up minimal space for years of scratch-off fun. It looks to be a quality item, though I obviously won't be testing that." —Katie Lou hoo

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $15.

    21. A set of food rattles they're going to taco 'bout for months.

    Uncommon Goods

    Get it from Uncommon Goods for $16.50.

    22. A silicone spoon that dispenses up to 3 ounces of baby food and makes feeding easier because parents can say, "Look, Ma, one hand!"

    Amazon

    Promising review: "OMG, I really love this spoon. My baby has just started solids, and I love the way this spoon allows the flow of food as required. The hole in the spoon does not allow big particles to flow through, which is great! Cleaning it is super easy because of the silicone material of the spoon. I just use a bottle brush and clean as soon as I am done with the feed. I would definitely recommend this amazing baby food spoon." —JB2006

    Get it from Amazon for $7.54+ (available in four colors).

    23. An hooded towel to make parents shout "hip hip hooray," because it will make drying off after bath time extra easy and SO cute.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I gave this as a gift. I have received numerous pictures of the little guy. Mama seems to be enjoying it. She commented on how soft it is. He looks adorable all wrapped up. It's functional and sweet, which is a great combo." —Ashley froment

    Get it from Amazon for $23.95 (available in hippo, raccoon, and polar bear).

    24. A interactive toy that'll take playtime to over-the-rainbow levels of fun.

    Target

    Promising review: "I bought this for my 11-week-old son as he loves anything that lights up and has music. I love the fact that it has three different languages because we are a bilingual family and he will be learning Spanish. It’s perfect for him to lay next to on the floor and when he starts to sit up on his own. He instantly starts giggling when I turn it on for him." —Asavoie0630

    Get it from Target for $19.99.

    25. A super-cute necklace — oh, wait, it's actually teething beads to help soothe baby's new chompers! (But nobody will know that.)

    Amazon

    The necklace is made of chewable silicon and provides instant relief and gum massage for teething little ones.

    Promising review: "This necklace is so cute!! I ordered this for a baby shower, and the mom-to-be loved it. The necklace has an adjustable length and is an easy hand-wash in soap and water. It's so practical and pretty. I'm planning to order this again and again as my friends have babies. :)" —Shellbell

    Get it from Amazon for $14.97 (available in four colors)

    26. A splurge-worthy formula maker that measures, mixes, and heats bottles and makes feeding a baby approximately 100* times easier.

    Amazon

    Okay, maybe not 100 times easier, but it will help save so much time and effort. It's basically a Keurig for babies!

    Promising review: "This is definitely a lifesaver for those midnight feedings! It also helps when you are busy with a fussy baby and you can easily just a press a button and it will make a bottle for you. This would be a great gift for any expectant mother, and I look forward to using it for all my future children!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $143.99 (available in two sizes).

    27. A diaper bag so chic they'll want to carry it around it show it off because nobody will know they're carrying 25 diapers and bunch of baby clothes.

    Amazon

    The bag is made of vegan leather and features nine pockets, an adjustable strap, a stroller strap, and a machine-washable changing pad.

    Promising review: "I love, love, LOVE this bag! It is spacious and stylish. The pictures don't do it justice! It doesn't really look like a diaper bag, which is what I love the most about it. It has all of the compartments needed to make any outing with baby an absolute breeze: a bottle holder, organization pockets in the main compartment, a changing-pad pocket, and a parent pocket up front. I know... it's a little pricey, but you're worth the splurge! After all, you just made a WHOLE HUMAN! Get the bag." —Mrs. Treehugger

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in five colors).

    28. A See & Swim bouncer that'll have parents asking you where you found it — and the only appropriate response is "42 Wallaby Way, Sydney."

    Amazon

    The bouncer is recommended for babies 0-6 months old.

    Promising review: "We use this almost daily. It is easy to move so you can take it with you around the house. My baby loves the mirror under Mr. Ray, and I love that it keeps him entertained. It is also super easy to take apart and take with you if you travel." —Sadie Amig

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    29. A set of muslin blankets you'll win(nie) any new parent over with.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I purchased this as a gift. However, I’ve got lots of experience with these swaddle blankets since my own kids had 12 of them and my sister's son had 8. They might seem pricey, and you might be debating if it’s worth it. Don’t worry, they are worth every penny. My son who is 3 still loves these blankets, and my nephew does too. When they were babies, these blankets were the perfect swaddling blankets. They're large and stretchy enough to make a really tight burrito baby. Other blankets would never keep my Houdini kids from getting out of the swaddles with all of their wiggling. I love these! I always give them as gifts now. The best baby blankets by far!" —NitaT

    Get it from Amazon for $54.95 (available in Winnie The Pooh, Jungle Book, and Bambi designs).

    30. A sit-to-stand activity center that grows with baby so they'll still be playing with it when you see them next year for the holidays.

    Target

    The seat on the activity center spins 360 degrees, plus it easily converts to a toddler play table with three height positions. Recommended for ages 0-12 months.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this convertible play chair/table. My daughter would not stay in the bouncy seat or swing set. Her dad bought her this, and she instantly loved it. She will be 1 in a few weeks, and I will be converting it to the table today. It is extremely easy to assemble. I really recommend this product. The pieces do not seem cheap. The items around the table, such as the airplane and flower, do not bounce back no matter how hard or far back it is pushed back, which is great because it will not hit the baby's face." —BETSY

    Get it from Target for $89.99.

    31. A first Christmas tree toy babies can ~rock around~ — and also maybe stumble around because they're still learning how to use those things we call legs.

    Target

    Promising review: "I'm so happy with this tree! My 1-year-old loves having it in his room. Some days he plays with the train, sometimes the ornaments, and sometimes the star, so it keeps his attention. Unlike our actual Christmas tree, he can be hands-on with this one without doing any damage. I look forward to putting it out for him for years to come. —Angela

    Get it from Target for $39.99.

    32. A garden drying rack so cute and creative it will make washing baby bottles really ~grow~ on parents (...or at least make it a little more tolerable).

    Amazon

    Promising review: "This clever invention has been so helpful in organizing and drying all of my son's baby bottles and my pumping supplies!! I can fit (with help from the boon twig and flower stem as well) several bottles and two sets of pumping supplies on this rack at the same time. I'm glad I got this version, as it fits everything perfectly and takes up less space on our already small counter! I would highly recommend this, as it makes washing all those bottles and pump parts a lot easier!!" —skellimae

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in green and white).

    33. A pair of Caribooties that are just so adorable there will be a round of awwws after opening the gift as they're passed around for everyone to see.

    Sorel

    Promising review: "The baby booties are the cutest thing, and my baby doesn't seem to mind wearing them. They are a bit heavy for tiny feet, but they stay on very well." —PAHeld

    Get them from Sorel for $50 (available in sizes 1-3 and in five colors).

    34. A bottle warmer to heat things up quickly and efficiently every time.

    Amazon

    This warms a 4-ounce bottle in only three minutes!

    Promising review: "This makes our lives MUCH easier, especially at 3 a.m. when you don't want to have to think about what you're doing. It works exactly as intended — heats up the milk quickly and evenly. This saves so much time and effort." —ZhemJZ

    Get it from Amazon for $39.90.

    35. A set of books because every parent swears their baby is a genius, so now is the time to prove it.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these books!! I think the concept is amazing. I'm a university student, and they even helped me understand some concepts better because they are explained in such a simple and graded manner that I think is difficult for university professors to use (it's hard to dumb things down sometimes). I bought them for a friend's kid, but if I ever have my own, Baby University books will probably make up the majority of what I read to my baby." —Kimber Summers

    Get it from Amazon for $30.63.

    36. An handmade avocado rattle made out of organic cotton for the family that's a bit extra, but that's okay, you like them anyways.

    Estella

    Get it from Estella for $14.99.

    37. A silicone place mat that suctions to a table or high chair to keep plates (and hopefully food) from being flung all across the room.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love, love, love these plates. They stick very well to our granite countertop and wood table. The suction and high edges help uncoordinated eaters get food onto their utensils and the extended sides catch any overflow. We have two (one for each kid), and I bought this one as a gift for a 1st birthday party. I'm very price-conscious and I feel like the price is very fair for the quality. I very much prefer that this uses a built-in suction design instead of suction cups, which never seem to work well for us. I've washed this by hand and in the dishwasher and it comes out nice and clean either way. I would highly recommend this to any parent or someone looking for a gift for a younger child." —St. George

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in green, blue, and red).

    38. A handmade wood donut teether babies will love a hole lot. Donut believe me? Just look how adorable it is!

    Etsy

    Get it from LexypexyEcoChic on Etsy for $26.

    39. A two-in-one night-light and sound soother parents may think is a jar full of fireflies when they open it, but will be *thrilled* by everything this magical little jar can do.

    Amazon

    Not only is this super cute, it has four light modes, six pre-loaded sounds, and Bluetooth capabilities. Plus, it has four timer settings for auto-shutoff for 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes. With one full charge, you'll get eight hours of playback!

    Promising review: "Absolutely LOVE this product! First, it's as adorable as it is functional. The mason jar with firefly light-up effect is SO cute. Second, it will play lullabies, but my favorite thing is to sync it to my Spotify (via Bluetooth) to play all my playlists. Third, I even love using it without music with just the night-light at nighttime as baby is drifting off to sleep. You can control everything on it via your smartphone, which is a WIN for this mama trying to get her baby to fall asleep on her own. Side note: While I LOVE this in my little's nursery, it keeps disappearing and ending up in my 5-year-old's room. Maybe I need a second? It's now officially my new go-to baby shower gift!" —LB

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    40. A pair of muffs that can be attached to a stroller to keep mom or dad's hands from freezing while they take their little one for a stroll.

    Buy Buy Baby

    These are wind and water-resistant and can be worn in up to -4°F.

    Promising review: "I live right by the water in Boston and walk my dog with my daughter in the stroller every day. Wind is always a factor. My hands were freezing in regular gloves by November. I noticed many of the mothers in my neighborhood had these muffs attached to their strollers, so I researched what all the hype was about and splurged on a pair for myself. I enjoy them. They serve their purpose. I do prefer using these muffs now over my old gloves, so overall I am happy with this product." —KRISTINNUGGET

    Get it from Buy Buy Baby for $39.99 (available in gray and green).

    Now of only you could give parents the gift of more sleep...
