Must Have Baby Gifts for the Holiday Season

The holiday season is here and that means there is shopping that needs to be done. No matter how many people you have on your list, shopping for the littlest people is sometimes the most fun. Baby gifts are so diverse these days that you can really get lost in all there is to choose from. But all of those gifts are not equal when it comes to quality and safety. 

If you’re looking for high-quality gifts that are also eco-friendly, look no further than Estella. Estella has a line of baby gifts that is second-to none.

Take the organic octopus baby gift set. When you first see the items in this set, you’ll fall in love with them because they are simply adorable. But with Estella it goes further than looks. The octopus lovey, matching hat and rattle are all made from GOTS-certified organic cotton. This means you don’t have to worry about toxic chemicals hurting the smallest of recipients. 

Environmentally friendly gifts that are also adorable can be found over at Stella McCartney Kids too. The yarn used in the holiday birdie gift set is made from organically grown cotton.

It’s part of the company’s commitment to eco-friendly fashion. This set is made up of two long-sleeved body suits with snaps on the side and in between the legs. If you do choose this product, you may want to buy one size up because the outfit tends to run on the smaller size. 

Besides clothes and organic baby blankets, organic newborn baby toys are also on the list of must have baby gifts. While there are still toys out there that are made from unsafe products, there are toys that are eco-friendly. Oli & Carol from Caramel is a bunny that is made from 100% natural latex from Hevea trees with safe natural dyes. You don’t have to worry when baby puts the toy in his mouth, because he will!

When you’re talking about must have baby gifts, you need to have a stuffed animal on the list. But you don’t want to pick up any old teddy bear. That’s boring. That’s why there’s Odette the Ostrich from Bonpoint. This little guy is on the unique side. That’s why he’s so memorable. He’s a little funky looking, but that’s what makes him so much fun. If you are thinking of giving him as a gift, he’s best for little ones that are at least one year old.

When you’re looking for one of the must have baby gifts, think practical, think unique, and think ecological - organic baby toys. That’s why you need to think about brands like Estella, Stella McCartney Kids and Bonpoint this holiday season. Happy shopping!

Guide to Lovey Blanket Shopping for Baby

There is nothing more precious than seeing a little baby cuddly with a lovey blanket. Since the blanket is so close to baby’s skin, you don’t want to pick out just any old blanket if you’re shopping for newborn baby gifts. You obviously want a blanket that’s soft. But, you should also look for a blanket that is made from eco-friendly materials. More and more organic baby blankets are showing up on the market because companies are realizing just how important this factor is becoming to parents.

Estella makes several organic baby blankets in a variety of styles. The organic taxi lovey is just one of them.
This 14” blanket is not only extremely soft to the touch, but is also made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton. This means your baby or the newborn you are buying the gift for will get a high-quality blanket that is also good for environment. This lovey is also handmade in Peru. With its bold patterns and colors, baby will be drawn to this lovey security blanket. Estella also offers whale, bunny, and other loveys that make for wonderful newborn baby gifts.

When it comes to infant blankets, the bunny blanket from Oeuf is also popular.

It is made from 100% baby alpaca. With its hood and bunny ears, it is perfect to keep baby warm at all times. This blanket is also made in Peru. If you don’t like the white color, the bunny blanket can also be purchased in rose or indigo.

Besides finding the right color, you also want to find a blanket or lovey blanket that has the right level of warmth and softness.

Bonpoint is on point with its version of the Alpaca blanket made from 100% Alpaca wool. This embroidered alpaca baby blanket will wrap baby in softness from head to toe.

Softness and cashmere tend to go hand in hand. So, it’s no wonder that the cloud snowball blanket from Stella McCartney Kids ranks high in the plush department.

It is made from 95% cotton and 5% cashmere. Its design is rather simple with a plain white background and bunny patch. But, don’t let that discourage you because besides being incredibly soft, this blanket is also environmentally friendly. The yarn of this garment is made from organically grown cotton. When it comes to organic baby blankets, this one can fall into that category as well because of its environmentally friendly materials.

The next time you’re shopping for a lovey blanket or a baby rattle, check out what Estella, Oeuf, and Bonpoint have to offer. Whether its super-soft blankets or organic baby blankets, there is sure to be something for every momma and baby out there. Remember, kids grow attachments to their blankies, so be sure to choose wisely!
