We share funny baby gifts for new parents all year around here, so why not create an entire category for the best funny baby gifts in our Baby Gift Guide? Exactly! And so we did. I mean, what new parents can’t use a good laugh during some of the most anxiety-provoking, sleepless weeks of their lives? Not to bring the vibe down or anything.
Yes, you can find a zillion sassy onesies everywhere you look, or lists of “funny baby gifts” on websites where it looks like they just Googled and picked the first 10 things that came up. (Ahem.) As for us, we spent time on this, yo!
You can we tend to lean toward those funny baby gifts that are a little more clever, a little more unexpected, a little more wry. Besides, a “lock up your daughters” onesie is soooo 2008. And kind of gross. So don’t do that.
With that, please enjoy our picks for the baby gifts that make us laugh, make us smile, make us want to run right out and get one immediately. Just like babies. (Well, except for that last part.)
