Best Gifts For Newborns & New Mamas: Child Mode’s 2011 Holiday Gift Guide Picks

The holiday season is an exciting time for expectant moms or those who have just welcomed a baby into their family. Here are some of our favourite gifts and picks for newborns and their mamas.

1. Cozy Newborn Elf Onesie

How adorable is this adorable onesie from Zutano? Unlike the heavy snow suits, the Elf Onesie is made from a lightweight (yet incredibly warm) sherpa fleece. The bulit-in foldover hand and foot cuffs add an extra layer of warmth and eliminate the need for mitts. And that elf hood? I can hardly take the cuteness!

Price: $43.00 from Zutano

2. Carousel Designs Customized Crib Bedding Set

Give the mama-to-be the chance to design her own dream crib bedding with Carousel Design’s awesome customizer program. I was ‘gifted’ with this set earlier on before my son was born and it was one of the nicest gifts I received.

3. Ariel Mom & Baby Set

Belabumbum is the ultimate in luxury maternity loungewear and sleepwear! Their Ariel Mom & Baby set is made from super soft pima cotton and fits beautifully pre and post-natal. The matching baby outfit is perfect for those late night changes as there are no buttons to undo!

Price: $121 from Belabumbum

4. Tabletop Baby Keepsake

Do you ever wish you could freeze time and bottle those sweet newborn moments? This sweet keepsake is the closest thing to it. With four steps you can capture your baby’s hand or footprint impression and frame it forever.

Price: $30 from Uncommon Goods

5. Mamaroo Plush

This is the techiest gift you could possibly give to a newborn – really. This amazing swing vibrates, bounces and sways just like you do. You can even plug in your iPod and put a special playlist together especially for baby. Amazing!
