First up is this really cool 3-stage bathtub from Skip Hop. It has an adjustable insert for teeny little babies which then comes out completely for when the baby can sit but isn't quite ready to transition into the full bathtub. I threw in some baby wash because I love a theme.
Speaking of themes, I bought diapers! This family plans to cloth diaper so I gave them a package of diaper inserts and a couple of my favorite diaper covers from Rumparooz. How cute is that plaid one?! I also got them a wet bag, which is a necessity if you are going to use cloth diapers but would also be a good gift for anyone because it can come in handy for travel or even a beach day.
These little extras are super affordable, cute and useful. Seriously, anything that you don't have to buy for yourself when you have a baby is so helpful. No gift is too small. The Cleaning Brush Set from Munchkin has different sized brushes to get in all the little parts of sippy cups. I LOVE these fruity teethers. The Baby Banana teether is kind of like a toothbrush and the RaZ-Berry teether is a favorite in our house. Since I truly believe you can never have enough spit rags when there's a baby around I also got some flannel receiving blankets.
Books are always a good choice, whether they are requested or not. These alphabet books by Greg Paprocki are sturdy board books that can withstand the rough handling of a baby (along with their need to chew) and they are full of historical vocabulary. A is for Atom is our book but there are a bunch of different versions so we went with J is for Jazz for the new baby.
Last but not least is a personal gift from Steve. He loves Batman and found these adorable Batman crib shoes for the baby. I really think giving a special gift having to do with you is a nice touch. :)
Conveniently I was able to wrap everything up and carry it all into the party in the bathtub! :)
One last thing is that Harold wanted to get in on the gift giving action so we picked out a few gender neutral hand-me-downs to pass along. I bought Harold his first box of crayons so that he could scribble in the card and on the envelope, which made his present extra cute!
Thanks for reading!
