    Santa baby, slip these items under the tree for me!

    Having a baby is an exciting (and maybe nerve-wracking) time! Here are a couple of tried, tested, and actually useful baby products that will make the perfect gift for any expecting parent this holiday season.

    1. A Momkindness diaper bag with plenty of pockets for all their baby things — nine, to be exact! It's stylish, functional, and includes tons of helpful additions, like a diaper change mat, removable diaper clutch, and a separate padded laptop compartment.

    2. A Sunday Citizen pocket robe that's buttery soft and perfect for skin-to-skin cuddling. It'll feel like wearing a blanket and is big enough to swaddle their lil' one, too.

    3. A 123 Baby Box subscription that'll supply new parents with full-sized products curated for their bundle of joy. It'll arrive monthly, which means they'll never run of out products right when they need them most.

    5. A set of gender-neutral baby outfits from Tenth & Pine that reviewers say are way comfier for their babies than other brands'. Every item is made of certified organic materials so it'll be safe for babies and good for the planet.
