My Favorite Baby & New Mom Gifts

I was very lucky to receive such thoughtful gifts each time John and I welcomed a new baby into our family — some that were exceptionally useful, others more meaningful that will become our treasures, and others that are just fancy and fun and the kind of thing parents never buy themselves! 

I’ll keep adding to this list because there always seems to be a new crop of fun gifts, and I’m always on the hunt for inspiration now that so many of my friends are giving birth!

Next time you need to buy a baby or new mom gift, here are some serious swoon-worthy picks to peruse.
