Our Ultimate Birthday Gift Guide: Because gifts need to be extra special this year

Birthdays are so meaningful for kids, especially when parties aren’t an option. We can help you find the perfect gift.

200+ of the best baby gifts of 2020

Whatever your budget, we think 2020 babies (and their parents) deserve some extra pampering right now.

So much coolness. Where to start…

Doctor? Lawyer? Donut Tycoon?

Anyone can print out a baby registry and dutifully purchase an infant bathtub and bouncy seat. But we’d rather find something that breaks up all the cliched "oohs and ahs" with a hearty guffaw at our friends’ showers.

Where is the Love? Right Here, In this Book

I’ve got a few friends involved in adoptions these days and I’ve gotta say, it’s really hard to find the perfect gift. I love the idea of something unique to their circumstances, but not all of them are the types to wear an "I’m an adoptive parent" tee shirt either. Then I stumbled across the Adoption Book and I thought, aha! That’s it!

Sucking Face

All hail the binkie, that great pacifier (pun intended) of babies, and best friend to sleep-deprived new mamas across the globe. However if I have one complaint about them, it’s that they fit ever so perfectly out the crib slats at 3 am. I have more experience with this than I’d care to detail.

This Has Grandma Splurge Written All Over It

I’ve heard about those grandmoms who look for any excuse to spoil their grandchildren and grandfetuses. If you’ve got one, you lucky mama, don’t send her off to buy boring essentials off your registry. She’d much rather get you the mother of all baby gifts:The bedding.

Out of This World

We know there’s no shortage of leather baby booties on the market these days — all of which are terribly cute and perfect for those crawlers and early-walkers. But if you’relooking for a shoe that no one else in the playgroup is likely to have,you might give Cute Baby Shoes a try.

Just Stick It

I have loved the clever, collagey, distinctive tee designs from Vancouver-based Dirty Laundry ever since we featured them last year. But the only problem with wearable art for kids – they most certainly can’t wear it forever.

Your Greatest Work of Art: Your Child

I’m always tempted to get one of those caricatures of my daughter at local art fairs. While I love the concept of my progeny immortalized at the skilled hand of an artist, something tells me that that’s not exactly what I’m going to end up with for my 20 bucks.

The Pregnant Woman’s Dignity Saver

I don’t care how convincing the saleswoman in the overpriced maternity shop is when she assures you "oh but no, our super-overpriced maternity pants can’t possibly fall down around your ankles every time you bend over"–she’s lying. And I have the incriminating plumber’s butt snapshots this pregnancy to prove it.

Blanket Snobbery

Who knew that I’d ever be a blanket snob? But after receiving more baby blankets than I know what to do with, I admit I’ve become a bit particular abo

Yes, It Will Look Good Over the Sofa

I’m all for cultivating sophisticated aesthetic tastes at a young age. Kids may be kids, but their bedrooms and bathrooms don’t have to stuffed to the gills with licensed characters to be appealing to them. And when you’re spending big bucks on decor anyway, shouldn’t your nursery art actually be…well, art?

Let’s Go Fly a Kite

I hadn’t flown a kite since I was a littlekid at the Jersey shore, but on a beautiful windy day at the beach last year, my daughter and I spent hours watching our little kite fly — until it broke and we had to retire it way too soon.

Reinventing the Highchair

I’m pretty low-maintenance in the "carrying baby gear around" category. Okay, I’m pathetic. We rarely remember to bring bibs when we go out to dinner, let alone a portable high chair But as I’ve learned, it does make feeding her a little tricky in a hotel room or at the home of a friend with no young kids.

Have Your Art and Eat Off it Too

I’m a firm believer that presentation is everything, particularly when it comes to feeding toddlers. So why not take that concept a step further and serve your cool shaped sandwiches and alphabet frieson some equally entertaining plates?

Shiny Pretty Things

I am what you might call a classic mom when it comes to accessorizing. It’s easier to wear the same pair of diamond studs every day than to navigate the continuum between tasteful, trendy, and tacky. Boring? Guilty as charged.

Pour Some Sugar on Me

I’m not crazy about saccharine-sweet girls’ clothes. Too much pink and lace and I start to get a toothache. But real sugar? Bring it on, baby.

You Are What You Carry

There’s something frustrating about spending a month searching for the perfect handbag, only to proudly wear it out of the house the first time…and run into four other people proudly wearing it out of the house. I really think there should be a rule against that.

Kids Music, 90210

If Patrick Dempsey likes a particular crib or Courteney Cox is enamored with her new sling, I’m more than delighted for them. Really. But a celeb endorsement just doesn’t weigh too heavily in my opinion of a product. However when I hear that there’s a kids’ album out by the preschool music teacher for all of Beverly Hills–okay, I’ve got to admit I stop and take note.

Coats to the Back of the Closet

Our lawn is covered in snow – again – but the calendar doesn’t lie: Spring really is right around the corner. While I’m looking forward to wagon rides to the park, I’m not excited about coaxing the girls into their coats, which I will then have to carry as the day goes on. Layering is the key here.

Buying the Farm

I generally laugh when I can hear strollers coming from two blocks away. Between the clip-on plush toys with rattles, jingly balls, and squeaky stuffed animals all tethered to the stroller bar–it’s madness!
