Em is the oldest in a circle of friends. The little girl next door is a year younger. And a friend of ours has a little girl a year younger too. So, when it comes time for holiday + birthday giving, I usually gift them something that Em loved when she was their age.
I thought I’d share with you some of Em’s favorites + my go tos for gift giving. First up, her newborn favorites.
Aden + Anais Swaddlers - I’ve blogged about these before. We love the big 47″ square ones. In the early days, we used them as swaddlers. Then nursing covers. Now with Em 2.5 years old, we use them as sheets.
Manhattan Toy Winkel - This was the first toy she could use on her own. Thanks to the loops, she was able to grasp it easily.
On the Night You Were Born - Hands down, my favorite book. It was given to us my Em’s aunt. It’s such a sweet, sweet story. I’ve teared up many a time reading it to Em.
Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether - A classic teething toy. I’ve gifted Sophie many times including this variation.
