Every year, it's the guys on my list who are hardest to shop for! Luckily, I don't have many on my list (just my dad, brother and husband that I'm in charge of!) I had McCann help me with this gift guide, so everything is approved by my techy-athletic-golf-loving-husband ;)

Gift Guide: for Moms & Babies

Well this gift guide sure was fun to put together! This one is for the mamas and the babies, which is pretty much my niche right now ;) Not only would these make fun gifts, but a lot of the items are some of our most-used baby items. I've made little notes about them below.

This year, I think we're just going to get the boys Christmas books since they won't remember it anyways ;) But I'm so excited about the following years' traditions to come! 

toki mat (foam, easy to clean, folds up, and comfy to play on!)
slippers (mini ugg lookalikes?! love!)
muslin blankets (these are our favorite brand)
wildbird baby carrier
baby play gym (the twins have loved this since they were 8 weeks old!)
activity saucer
pacifiers (the cutest, and the only brand the boys will take)
luli bebe diaper bag (I LOVE my diaper bag!!)
birth flower earrings (wouldn't this be so sweet as a gift to a new mom?)
honest co bath wash
pipette baby balm (the best balm for scratches, dry skin, etc.)
sherpa baby blanket
Psalm 23 board book (these books are our fave!)
vegan leather changing mat (it's so nice to have one of these for changing diapers when you're not at the changing table. We keep it in our room in case we need to change them on our bed.)
travel sound machine (couldn't live without ;))
jellycat bunny stuffed animal
Little Blue Truck Christmas book
Merry Christmas, Corduroy 
stacking toy
first christmas ornament 



I'm curious to know what you're getting your little ones this year!
