Loves :: Mom + Baby Christmas Wishlist

Here's my guide to the most unique and pretty presents this season...

Subscription boxes // I love getting sub boxes because it's always a surprise, and I love giving them because it takes off the stress of picking out something perfect! You can get subscriptions for anything these days, so there's one for every mama in your life. I've used Beauty Box 5 (for hair + makeup samples), Julep Maven (for nail polish + mani tools), Studio Calico (for scrapbooking supplies), and Stitch Fix (for clothes). You can rest assured that when your friend receives one of these packages, it'll be chock-full of handpicked goodies, and you don't have to do any of the work.

Cute clothes at a cuter price // I've pretty much been broke since the day I graduated college, so buying secondhand is my jam. Yet another reason to love the internet: you can now go thrifting online. I've shopped from thredUP and Twice and adored everything I received. You can spend $20 and get 4 items for the girls on your list (or for yourself). It's crazy. But if you're weird about wearing something that someone else has already worn, check out Zulily. They have new stuff but at super low prices. Either way, you're sure to find something more original than that shirt everyone has from your favorite fast fashion store.

Handmade (by you, or someone else) // I can't help but include Etsy on this list because you just can't go wrong there. You can find anything from soap to shoes to caramel chocolate fudge bars to glasses made from beer bottles, and let's not forget all the awesome jewelry. Personally, I'm keen on the friendship necklaces from Flapper Doodle, shown above. Plus, you can customize them. Too cute.

Lights + sounds // Babies like anything that light up or make noise, so you really can't go wrong here, but we have this sound machine projector. My mom got us a cute owl night light for Trey's room (I couldn't find it online, but here's a similar one) and this owl mobile too. I also want this adorable turtle light and this Frozen music box. (Yes, I jumped on the Frozen trend train. Let it gooo!)

Something to chew on // Kids like putting stuff in their mouths up until the age of around 7 so anything safely chewable will do. Bloggers seem to be obsessed with giraffes for their babes -- and for good reason, they're totally cute -- so here is a giraffe teething toy and pacifier (and blankets and outfit, just for fun).

Rides + glides // I've read rave reviews about the 4moms bouncer seat and infant tub, along with the ERGObaby carrier. We use a glider by Graco and it's my favorite baby item hands-down. I'm also obsessed with the unicorn rocker I found at Pottery Barn and kinda want it for myself.

Be sure to check out what's in my diaper bag, what's in my hospital bag, my first Bluum box, and my first month favorites for lots more ideas! Happy gifting!
