Presenting the 2016 Ultimate Baby Shower Gift Guide! It’s back, and bigger than ever.

We are so thrilled to present, our 2016 Ultimate Baby Shower Gift Guide, back by popular demand after a short hiatus. It’s been a labor (pun kind of intended) of love to seek out over 175 of the absolute coolest baby gift ideas, including lots from the small brands that we love to support. No basic, boring registry essentials here. (Sorry, baby nail clippers). These are more like those desperately-want-to-have items that can really, truly make those early days and months so much easier, more stylish, more organized, and hopefully more fun. Yes, it’s true. Babies are fun! Also? You’ll find lots of exclusive...

Geek-tastic babies, your wardrobe awaits.

We discovered the awesome pop culture baby tees and onesies from Austin artist Kayo Master over a year ago, and loved them so much (zomg, that Princess Leia onesie?) that we featured them in our Baby Shower Gift Guide. Since then she’s expanded her line, with some awesome new designs and even some baby gift sets than any geeky mama will swoon for. With Dr. Spock, Captain America, Mr. T, and a huge host of baby Star Wars characters in training (sorry…Star Wars inspired characters) you can find lots of these cool handmade Kayo Master baby clothes at BRIKA...

A baby shower gift with bite

Babies are warm and cuddly and thinking about them helps us conjure up images of teddy bears and pillowy clouds. Well, unless you actually have one and you know that in reality, babies have more bite than we give them credit for. So for the next baby shower, opt for something with some edge, like these shark baby pajamas from Black Wagon. After all, aren’t babies really at the top of the food chain in a way? Plus, like sharks, babies have the ability to fascinate and frighten us all in the same breath. –Eva Hatley Shark Footed Coveralls are...

Some of the very best baby book gift sets (just add cute wrapping paper)

I still remember, before I had kids, being so excited to get a friend’s new baby a set of classic books like Alice and Wonderland and Peter Pan–and the way she looked at me when she said her daughter would love them in 10 years or so. Hey, I still thought it was cool, but with these baby book gift sets I found, at least the mom to be can start reading them at the very first bedtime. –Liz Peter Rabbit book collection: Traditionalists will love this Beatrix Potter collection, and though what’s outside a book is never more...

Lion Love

I just found the absolute perfect baby gift if you’re looking for something sweet, personalized, and indie. In fact we love it so much, it’s one of the first items we knew we wanted in our baby shower gift guide this year. This personalized lion print with the new babe’s name on it is just super sweet. The drawing is whimsical (this isn’t a National Geographic lion, don’t you worry) and the personalization in a fun font adds a thoughtful touch. Here’s a cool fact. Did you know that lions sleep for twenty hours a day? This sounds a whole...
