The Best Gifts For Babies & Kids (That Won’t Annoy Mama, Either!)

From holiday-flavored baby food to play sofas, treat your little ones (and yourself) to a different gift approach this holiday season.

As a mom, you look forward to shopping for everyone, sure. But your favorite people to buy (endless) gifts for are the tiny humans you love dearly. And even if you’re not a parent but a beloved auntie or godmother, there’s something special about watching the holiday magic light up in children’s eyes. However, you also want to be kind to, ahem, your ears and not give a kiddo a (very loud) drum set. Instead, you probably look for handcrafted wonders, organic everything, and sneaky ways to educate during play. 

Look no longer because our selections ditch the flashing lights and loud sounds and offer a different approach to gift giving that is a present for the parents, too. From kid clothes rental services to elite-level baby monitors, you’re sure to find something
