favorite baby gifts

February 19, 2010

As friends are having their second or third child, many of us are starting to ask eachother for suggestions for gifts for a same sex sibling.  I have to say that there are a couple things I just love that I was given- and I am still using today! First, personalized towels from Lands End– you can pick your design and have them personalized. My friend Julie did this for my two sons – and the blue dogs are still being used for my boys 3 years later!  I have given many canvas tote bags from Lands End – I think they are so practical and helpful- especially for bringing toys along, or packing for a quick overnight. Another gift I have given is Lina Bean’s burp cloths and bibs– such cute patterns and I have heard she packages and ships them really nicely- I know new burp cloths were necessary when my second came along! I also love the idea of giving matching pajamas for siblings. Hanna Andersson and Old Navy are good places to check out.  What are your ideas? Any favorite gifts you have given or received?

    I have given personalized burp cloths from Just Plain Cute – many times.
    Super cute and great quality! They have other items like sweaters and blankets too!

    A good friend gave me a personalized Itzy Ritzy blanket for my 4th daughter. It is beautiful and luxurious. They also have burp cloths, carseat covers, snack bags and more with fresh patterns and bold colors. Great for gifts.

    I love the personalized canvas tote bag I rcvd for my daughter from LLBean. Extra large–great for beach and overnights. Also love her personalized PB towel. 🙂
    And I love giving the rollneck sweater from LLBean
    I think they are high quality and very cute. I just looked and not a huge selection at the moment but usually quite a few cute designs.

    I second the personalized bath towels for baby gifts. I’m still using one I got 5 years ago for my daughter.

    Lately I love to give personalized hooded towels. I order towels like this: from the Etsy shop Snuggles of Love: . They also have tons of other cute personalized things.
