Baby Gifts for the Design-Minded


Lucky me… I got to round up adorable baby gifts! It can sometimes be tricky shopping for the itty bitty ones at the holidays though. You want to get something fun for them, but depending on how tiny they are, they may not be super into toys yet. Sometimes for the littles you’re essentially gifting to the parents, so you want something lovely and cute.

I tried to include a good mix of toys and special items to help ya out this year when shopping for the 0-2 year old loves in your life. Check them out here…

1. Hape Pull Toy Zebra – This is one of those toys that is not only fun for baby but would look adorable on a bedroom shelf. 

2. Cable Knit Blanket – Cozy gifts are always a good idea.
3. Radio Flyer Classic Walker Wagon – This wagon is so great for those just starting to walk but is also useful for a while to push and pull and carry all the stuffed animals around in.
4. Land Of Nod Milestone Baby Cards – Wish I had had these for Sienna! SO cute.
5. Freshly Picked Leather Gold Polka Dot Moccasin – I mean. The cutest. And these shoes stay on so well, are soft and just darn adorable.
6. Oh Just Dandy Wooden Teether – Jill is a friend of mine from Nashville and makes the most adorable items for babies. This is just one of the super cute things in her Etsy store. The crochet on the wooden beads makes them extra soft and perfect for teething. Check out her super cute stuffed friends made with the most adorable fabrics, too!
7. Janod Penguin Stacker -This little guy is not only cute, but helps little hands learn fine motor skills and a little bit of problem solving. Like his zebra friend he’d look cute cute on the shelf, too.
8. Hape Happy Villa Dollhouse – Little Greenlea has this adorable house and Scotti said it’s the best. A wonderful first dollhouse. (Just save any smallish pieces for later).
9. Tegu Travel Block Kit – Perfect for restaurant play. For impatient kiddos and adults, alike. Sienna has this set and it’s a hit with everyone.
10. Prince Lionheart Wheelie Bug – The most adorable ride-on toy that even I wouldn’t mind having around our house. So cute.
11. Love Mae Dinner Set – The most precious ever! This woodland set is my favorite, but it comes in a few other options, too. Heart. Eyes.

This picture is of Sienna’s first snow, in 2013 (those cheeks!!!) It’s supposed to snow tomorrow here (a rare treat), so I thought it was an appropriate choice. We’re all cozy in our hand knit hats above (a hobby love of mine) and you better bet I’m gonna snuggle in and do some knitting tomorrow. I’m currently making her some warm wool socks. I adore knitting tiny clothing!
Happy shopping for the teeny tinies!

      I do! I haven’t as much lately, but I even have some patterns for sale on Ravelry. I’ll try to think of how to incorporate my knitting into an upcoming post!
