    1. An adorable set of "Sophie" giraffes that every kid falls in love with.

    Promising review: "It is exactly how it looks – my daughter loves this toy! The plush toy is a nice bonus. It makes a rattle sound and the other toy squeaks – she loves to grab and suck on both of them. Good investment." –Azia

    Get it from Amazon for $38.25 (on sale from $45.88).

    2. A pair of gloves to attach to your stroller in the winter.

    Promising review: "I love these. I leave them attached to the stroller handlebar all the time in the cold weather. They are big enough to slip my hands in and out of even when wearing my winter jacket, yet don't let any noticeable air in while I'm walking. Completely satisfied." –CKJPJ

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99 (on sale from $59.99).

    3. A box of 216 diapers — and yes, you will run out of these surprisingly fast.

    Promising review: "Love Pampers. The swaddlers have the awesome blue line, which lets you know when it's time for a diaper change. The absorbency is great." –BK Shah

    Get them from Amazon for $42.99 (on sale from $54.80).

    4. A diaper backpack that has insulated milk bottle pockets and waterproof storage for diapers.

    Promising review: "This backpack is the best! It frees up my hands and my husband will wear it!! It has so many pockets and insulated pouches — there is a place for everything! Super comfortable and the stroller clips are great!" –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $46.99 (on sale from $149.99).

    5. Aquaphor for your baby's dry, chapped, or irritated skin.

    Promising review: "My baby's dermatologist recommended this product for a rash on his hand. I have applied this to the area every day and I see improvement. He has sensitive skin and has had no problem with it." –Nikie Taylor

    Get it from Amazon for $12.79 (on sale from $24.55).

    6. A diaper genie with odor lock technology so your nursery smells fresh.

    Promising review: "We love our diaper genies!!! I've bought three in the last two months as gifts (they are the perfect present for every new mom). No smell, easy to handle disposal, and fun colors! Very happy with our purchase!!" –Andi

    Get it from Amazon for $30.49 (on sale from $39.99).

    7. A baby wipe container that warms the wipes and has a soft night light.

    Promising review: "Love! My first baby is nine weeks old and I just ordered this. It works great and is so nice for my son, especially with the winter coming. Certainly a nice treat for your baby." –Whitney

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50 (on sale from $31.99).

    8. A dishwasher-safe placemat that sticks to flat surfaces to avoid spills.

    Promising review: "I love this mat. It's small and compact enough to fit in the diaper bag and take out to eat with our 12-month-old. This one is about the size of an adult dinner plate, and most importantly, it stays in place!" –Martin Bing

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99 (on sale from $49.99).

    9. Baby SPF 50, which is water-resistant for 80 minutes.

    Promising review: "I love this sunscreen and use it all summer with my son, who is sensitive to chemical sunscreens. The pump is much more convenient and safer than squeeze bottles." –Stephanie

    Get it from Amazon for $19.94 (on sale from $27.59).

    10. A jogging stroller that easily folds for storage.

    Promising review: "We have areas we go with our daughter that are slightly 'off road' and this handles it like a charm. We bought all Graco products so the car seat slips right in for our baby. This is a quality product — and so easy to disassemble, so it fits in almost any vehicle. Great purchase at a great price." –Dave

    Get it from Amazon for $104.92 (on sale from $189.99).

    11. Three packs of 60 flushable wipes made with plant-based ingredients.

    Promising review: "These Babyganics are the perfect thickness and durability for one use, but still flushable. They do not dry out prematurely in the package, which has a thick, sturdy flap over the opening instead of a flimsy sticker. As far as I'm concerned, this is the perfect wipe (and not just for babies — our whole family uses them)." –Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $13.47 (on sale from $18.53).

    12. A bath support that will hold your baby and allow water to run through the comfortable mesh material.

    Promising review: "I am so happy with this baby bath. I love how easy it is to use. The rubber material that the baby lies on is super soft and keeps the baby in place – no sliding down. Very clean, easy, and my baby loves it! Would definitely recommend it!" –Anna

    Get it from Amazon for $18.74 (on sale from $29.99).

    13. A knee cushion so you can comfortably wash your baby in the bath.

    Promising review: "Wow, what a difference this truly makes! I have bad knees, and with my first child I would lay down two towels every time to avoid discomfort. This feels great and it's good support for me. Totally worth it, I recommend it to any parent." –Lucina Saucedo

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (on sale from $25.74).

    14. A spout cover to protect your baby's head from the faucet.

    Promising review: "I got it today and used it tonight – loved it! Very easy to throw on, tighten, and it fits snugly. So dang cute too!!! It's soft and covers faucet/spout completely." –Mack

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (on sale from $17.99).

    15. Safety nail clippers designed to not cut the baby's skin while trimming.

    Promising review: "After clipping my son's skin and causing him to bleed when he was only a few hours old, I had become super nervous and wasn't able to get his nails as short as I wanted. As soon as these arrived I trimmed my son's nails, and in less than a minute they were all trimmed and he barely had time to fidget! I would buy again and will recommend them to other nervous moms! Thank you for this product!" –M. Jones

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (on sale from $19.99).

    16. A folding crib you can easily transport so your baby always sleeps in comfort.

    Promising review: "Easy to set up and easy to break down. My wife and I are going to keep this in the trunk of our car. It'll be nice and convenient to break out when at a friend's house where there is no baby-friendly seating. This is well-made and feels very safe." –Jim Y

    Get it from Amazon for $62.69 (on sale from $79.99).

    17. A convenient baby carrier that allows you to be hands-free when traveling.

    Promising review: "So easy to get on and off by yourself! Worked great when I flew with my infant over the holidays too — kept her close and my hands free. You can go through airport security with it, and I kept it on most of the flight comfortably." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $43.99 (on sale from $79.99).

    18. A cradling seat with a soothing vibration to calm your baby.

    Promising review: "I was worried buying one of the less expensive versions of a bouncer would mean less quality or experience. I was wrong. This bouncer is perfect for our 13.5-pound two-month-old. She loves it! It saves us when we need to set her down after a feeding because we can't lay her flat due to reflux. I would highly recommend!" –Briana Arensburg

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99 (on sale from $32.99).

    19. A safety gate to keep the kids out of areas that aren't baby-proofed.

    Promising review: "I love this gate — it automatically closes behind you. It comes with all the hardware needed to extend. I plan to purchase another one of these gates in the near future for the top of the stairs, in case the kid learns how to climb out of her crib." –Cloverhoof

    Get it from Amazon for $47.87 (on sale from $59.99).

    20. A wireless camera so you can check in on your baby from work.

    Promising review: "This camera is small but mighty! It has a very clear picture and it's easy to install the app and use on my iPhone. I can zoom in while I am at work and the baby is home with Dad to see how she is doing — it gives me such peace. I love this camera. It is a nice, small size, so is easy to hang on a wall or shelf. Wonderful night vision — my baby sleeps in absolute darkness and I can see her very clearly through this camera and app. The sound is great as well — I can hear my baby or talk to her!" –Wendy Kreller

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (on sale from $49.99).

    21. A 3-in-1 seat that teaches your baby how to sit, helps them eat at the table, and transforms into a booster seat when they reach toddler age.

    Promising review: "This is fantastic. It connects to most kitchen chairs. It is light and it has grown with my baby girl. I often set it up in the kitchen so she can see me. The price is more than reasonable and it cleans up easily. I have taken the seat to homes for dinner and used the foam insert in grocery store carts to help the baby sit up. Super versatile and I would buy it again." –Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $17.84 (on sale from $34.99).

    22. A BPA-free teether with different textures to help with new teeth coming in.

    Promising review: "My son's favorite chew toy when he was teething. He would happily chew on this for long periods of time because it made his gums feel better while his first teeth were coming through. He preferred it over the typical chew rings." –Otis Tang

    Get it from Amazon for $4.99 (on sale from $9.76).

    23. A pack of four clips so your baby stops dropping pacifiers on the dirty floor.

    Promising review: "I love the design. I think they are super cute! My son is two years old and likes to spit out his pacifier. I attach the pacifier clip to his clothing or bibs and it stays firmly. They never come unclamped. I love these pacifier clips." –LeoRuizdbm5

    Get them from Amazon for $6.99 (on sale from $26.99).

    24. A four-pack of BPA-free toothbrushes with colored bristles so you never use too much toothpaste.

    Promising review: "Love these!! Perfect for my little one who wants to brush his teeth all by himself. I don't have to worry about him slipping and jamming a toothbrush down his throat. I will be buying more to add to baby gifts!" –PRipp

    Get it from Amazon for $11.98 (on sale from $19.98).

    25. A wind- and water-resistant stroller blanket to protect your baby from the coldest winters.

    Promising review: "I love this thing. It's so warm and my daughter kicks her feet and giggles every time we go for a walk. It fits the stroller well without taking off the canopy." –Shauna

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (on sale from $49.95).

    They'll appreciate this one day!
