From the music lover to the foodie and more, these gender-neutral gifts will have your BFF exclaiming “OMG” over the cutest baby products out there.
For the Earth-Loving Parent
The Burt’s Bees line is eco-friendly and high quality at a value (bonus!), making it one of Gugu Guru’s favorite brands across the board. This adorable basket includes many of the essentials you need for baby’s first days in the world.
For the Cause-Driven Parent
From its eco-friendly and non-toxic materials to its gorgeous, minimalist appearance – this play gym is a crowd pleaser all around. Cause-driven parents who want to do right by fellow global citizens will especially love that the artisanal dolls are fair-trade and hand-knit by artisans in Peru.
For the Foodie Parent
Moms will be logging countless hours feeding their little ones. This baby food cook book, written by the food editor of Parents magazine, is chock full of easy, peasy yummy recipes good for the whole family.
Minimalism is on-trend for modern families and this product is a minimalist’s dream. It is a truly multi-functional 5-in-1 food processor that heats, sterilizes, steams, blends, and defrosts.
For the Sophisticated Parent
Sure she maybe ubiquitous, but Sophie the Giraffe has become something of an icon for the modern mom set. Made from 100% natural rubber and totally adorable, Sophie is a must-have teething toy for every baby. The teething toy and book set makes a great gift.
For the Beach Bum Parent
Saltwater loving parents (and Shark Week fans) will love this unisex towel gift set from Baby Aspen. Whether for the home or for summer weekends at the beach, the set is adorable and, more importantly, super soft for your babe.
For the Music Loving Parent
If these soothing tunes from the fab four don’t help to usher baby into some much needed sleep, at least they’ll provide some nice background noise to the sound of crying.
