Today's gift guide focuses on the tiniest recipients and, let's face it, is there anything cuter to shop for than itty bitty baby items?! Not a chance. If you know someone who just had a baby or is expecting, let this guide help you make the perfect selection in gifting this holiday season. The featured items have all been loved by my littles and also stand the test of time- most are on baby #4 in my house and still in great shape! None of these items are things I would categorize as baby "essentials" (with the exception of the swaddles), but since an expecting mama usually has necessities on her brain it's fun to find something here to spoil her and her little one on the way this holiday season.

1. This doll from Anthropologie which is a darling playmate for baby and makes for equally sweet nursery decor.

2. This teething toy which is a diaper bag classic and such a "must-have" gift for any new mama to receive.

3. These sweet gender neutral onesies which I've purchased in both short sleeve and long sleeve for our littlest guy. I love how soothing these colors are, they hold up great in the wash and the kimono style makes quick changes a snap. My advice is to skip the newborn size and opt for buying a couple sets in various larger sizes so that mama has new onesies to enjoy as her little bundle grows.

4. These leather moccasins range in price based on color-way (many are on sale right now for Black Friday) and may seem a little pricey, but you truly can't beat the quality and, surprisingly, they stay on baby feet! I prefer the gender neutral color options since I've been able to reuse them for all my babies ("Weathered Brown" is my absolute favorite). Again, I would skip the newborn size and help get the baby stocked up with footwear for when he or she grows out of all those baby shower gifts.

5. This brand of swaddles is my favorite, hands down. The prints continue to get cuter and cuter by the year, they get softer with each wash and, honestly, this is one of those items you can never have too many of. They can be used as swaddles, blankets, bibs, burp cloths, sun covers, the list goes on...these are a great gift that are both fun and practical to give and receive!

6. There's nothing better than snuggling up to read a book with your baby and I love helping a family grow their children's book collection during the holidays. It would be fun to give this classic book (one of our favorites!) as a little set with these matching pajamas.

7. Another little lovey that I thought was too cute to pass up, this sloth would make a great gift for a baby on the way or one celebrating their first Christmas. The entire collection of plush toys at Anthropologie is actually adorable (think llamas, flamingoes and mermaids); I suggesting perusing if you have time!

8. If these pajamas came in my size, I would seriously buy them. Just like the swaddles by the same brand the comfort is out of this world and the prints are so sweet. I want a matching pair of these for each of my kids in the "Lovestruck" print.

9. The last two gifts are similar in sentiment, but I love that these milestone cards encourage new parents to take photos of their babies at other memorable moments in addition to the typical "month-by month" photos. Each card is darling and there is no sweeter way to create a baby book than one filled with pictures of the actual star of the show.

10. This gift is a little more classic simply featuring milestone cards for each month of baby's first year, but it comes with a matching blanket to take perfect pictures on (and one that's great for snuggling with far beyond baby's first year).

Are any of these gifts going to be wrapped under your tree this year? What are your other favorite items to give to your favorite little ones during the holidays? Tell me in the comments below!
