10 Off the Registry Baby Gifts

I'm very excited to have a few close friends that are expecting in the next few months along with me. For showers I typically buy products on the registry but also like to add in something special or gift something separately not on their list.  I've thought back to what I loved most for Lexi off the registry and rounded up my top picks. They each hold their own as a single gift (oil, bow or teether would be perfect for a colleague or new friend), combine a few for that special mom-to-be.... or treat yourself and baby!

A couple of my friends are not finding out the gender, which inspired me to keep this almost gender neutral. Even though I am soon to be a boy mom, I always gravitate to pink and bows. 

I especially loved this wrap for around the house when Lexi was a newborn. I preferred the Baby Bjorn carrier when I was out and about since it was less fuss to put on and sturdier, but I did use this on occasional outings. The grey stripe is the perfect gender neutral gift (therefore always backordered.... don't wait until last minute). Available at The Tot or Solly Baby

A friend gave these to me at my shower and I ended up buying Lexi a new pair each time she outgrew them up until she was a year old. They truly do stay on and no socks required. My other favorite were Zutano booties.

I keep Lexi's on her bookshelf... they double as decor. Unfortunately this shop is discontinuing their blocks, find a similar set here 

By far my favorite product that I used for Lexi when she was a newborn. You can be assured that all the ingredients in these products are safe for baby! Beautycounter has a baby set that makes a great gift, but if I have to choose one product it would be the oil for after bath. You can place your order through me here or contact me for special pricing on your first order.

Like I said I tried to keep this roundup gender neutral... but couldn't resist my favorite new bow find. You really can't have enough options as a girl mom! The soft headband won't dent baby's head. The Splendid Bow Shop is another one to check out. Both brands have cute seasonal prints. 

I credit these pacifier clips and teethers as an Instagram find when Lexi was a newborn. I was amazed to see how much Loulou Lollipop has grown in the past two years from Etsy to it's own shop and several larger retailers, like Nordstrom

Can you really have enough stuffed animals? Never. This brand is so soft and carried at higher end department stores and boutiques. You really can't go wrong! There is one for every budget. The bunnies are especially popular - and if you have time can monogram the ear. 

One of my favorite gifts at my shower was a pink Tiffany piggy bank. The elephant and duck are gender neutral and the pig comes in blue and pink. 

I had this hoodie in every size for Lexi until she turned two. I especially love the seasonal stripe versions (surprise). A set would make a great gift, year round. 

Lexi's coming home outfit was Kissy Kissy... love this brand of Pima cotton. Also check out Sammy + Nat. While Lexi wore zip ups from Carter's 90% of the time, I did enjoy having a few luxe onesies in the mix. 

Do you have a go-to-gift for moms-to-be?
