The Most Practical Gifts for New Baby


Are you looking for some good gift ideas for a new baby or infant in your life? Read below to see my picks for Baby B that I find to be the most useful, even for the third baby of the family.

If you haven’t heard of Baby Aspen, you definitely need to go check out their shop ASAP! Baby Aspen is a premier designer and manufacturer of boutique-quality baby gifts that are perfect for the holiday season and year round. I adore their current Little Peanuts collection for Baby B. The elephant print is so cute and you already know by now that gray is my favorite neutral! All of the pieces in the Little Peanuts collection are both cute and functional. Here are my favorites:

Hooded Towel

I’m a huge fan of hooded towels for babies, toddlers and even preschoolers. All three of my boys use their hooded towels daily. I love this adorable hooded bath towel from the Baby Aspen Little Peanuts Collection. I love that it is lightweight and the size is perfect for babies 0-9 months.


Footed pajamas are a staple in any baby’s infant wardrobe. You would think that I’d have a stock pile of them between the two older boys, but I’ve actually had to buy quite a few more for B. Whether it was due to normal wear/tear or the necessity of certain sizes in different materials, footed pajamas were in short supply in Baby B’s wardrobe. This adorable pajama and hat set from the Little Peanut’s Collection is the perfect gift for a new baby. It comes in 0-6 month size and the elephant print is oh so cute.

Keepsake Toy/Stuffed Animal

While I’m not a fan of clutter, I do like having a special keepsake toy/stuffed animal for each of my kids. Since Baby B is the third baby, most of his stuffed animal collection is filled with hand me down toys from his big brothers. This adorable elephant is perfect for our littlest babe. It’s so soft and plush and is a great toy for him right now. I hope that as he grows, we’ll be able to take special “Watch Me Grow” pictures next to Louie the Elephant. Oh and an added bonus! The toy from the Little Peanuts Collection also comes with cute baby socks.


There can never be enough socks in our house. Through our months-long cold season and boys who participate in lots of sports that require sneakers and and athletic shoes, socks are a complete necessity in our house. We always seem to lose matching pairs in the laundry, in the closet, in the car. You name it and pretty much any nook or cranny in our house is filled with missing socks.

As a mama of three little babes, I love baby gifts that are adorable, yet useful. Baby Aspen is a great place to shop for new babies (and parents!). I love that they design baby gifts specifically to please both baby and new parents, with quality as their top priority.
