Shopping for other people: Babies (Part 2)

It's been a while since I've posted a selection of baby gifts, and since every third person I know is having a child in the next 6 months, it is time to refresh the gift list.  I do buy things from registries if I think they're cute, but if I have to choose between bottles or some boring onesies I'm going to strike out on my own and pick something cute and unique from an Etsy seller.  Like these things (notice the absence of giant head bows):

Knitted Hats from CiteFuzz
I think these are precious and sturdy enough to be handed down later.  Just be sure to figure out how many months old the baby will be when it starts getting cold, and allow several weeks for the hat to be made.

Custom Mobiles by Hart's Desire
I know this gift would be best with some input on colors from Mom, but I love it.  It's so simple and chic for those who don't want the room to scream 'baby' and older kids would enjoy it too

Pillow Case Dresses
You can find these dresses from various sellers that look so cute on little girls.  I like when they're made from modern fabrics and use material instead of ribbon to secure the top.

The Unisex gift
I have to include something green/blue/yellow for those who want to be surprised, and I think this blanket is really cute and not too babyish.

Onesies from FinchBaby
I have no idea if these onesies will survive the rigors of babyhood, but they are so cute I don't care.  I don't think baby clothes necessarily have to be cutesy, and the mod mommies out there will like them.  (You practical moms are cringing, aren't you?)


  1. Those onesies are the best thing on your list. I would have loved to have received a gift like that!

    I found the best blog the other day for unique baby & kid stuff - she totally nails it:

  2. I'm going to attempt a mobile by cutting up a Liberty of London file folder from Target :) It looks easy enough... (famous last words, I know)

  3. well......... how'd the mobile turn out?

  4. I have to get some little grommets to hold the three strips together. Tying them is going to rip the card stock. I'll post a picture once I get my lazy self to Michaels and find what I need. :)
