2016 Holiday Gift Guide for Babies (under 1 Year)



I received a product or products to review in this post. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own. This post may contain affiliate links.

Please remember to ensure that gifts and products are age appropriate for any child that you are purchasing them for.

Boppy Pillow. Our Boppy has been amazing during our little one’s first year! I took it to the hospital when I had him and we haven’t stopped using it since! Now that he’s older and I am not nursing, he loves relaxing on his Boppy while drinking a bottle or spending time in the floor. Not only is this a great gift for Babies under a year, it’s also a great gift for new or expectant moms! 

Boppy has also recently launched a Safe Sleep Education Kit for Childcare Centers. The Childcare Safe Sleep Program is designed to educate Childcare Facility Managers and parents on safe sleep practices for baby and what they can do to ensure a safe sleep environment. Boppy is also dedicated to educating Childcare workers and parents on the approved uses of the Boppy® Pillowincluding breastfeeding, bottle feeding, propping, tummy time and sitting. The Boppy® Pillow is not recommended for sleeping. This will be achieved by sending out an educational Safe Sleep Kits to Childcare Centers across the United States:

  • Childcare Centers are invited to fill out a safe sleep education survey. If selected, the first 500 will receive a complementary Safe Sleep Education Kit.
  • The Kit includes one free Original Boppy® Pillow with Cotton Slipcover, Safe Sleep brochure for the care facility from First Candle and Safe Sleep education and Boppy Coupons for parents. The Kit has a retail value of over $40.*

For more information and/or if you have questions, please contact Mimi at  If you’re a Childcare Manager, please click here to fill out the survey for your complimentary Safe Sleep Education Kit by Boppy:

Bookroo Book Subscription.  I absolutely love this idea! Bookroo is not just another box subscription filled with items that clutter your house, these are amazing books that are not easily found in stores-true classics and treasures for your little one! Give the gift of reading this season and give the special little ones in your life a Bookroo subscription. A few more details about Bookroo as shared by their team: 

Our goal is to send the hidden gems that you don’t already own and are not easy to be found online or in stores. Our books are extensively reviewed by a panel of 12 families attending Stanford University and their combined 22 kids!

Our mission is to enable and empower parents to build their children’s book collections in an affordable and exciting way through curated monthly book deliveries. We believe in the power and impact of the written word in the life of a child, and believe it’s never too early to start reading to children!

We are dedicated to making the world a better place. A couple ways Bookroo helps the world at large include our recycled (and recyclable!) packaging and our commitment to giving back through donating children’s books to children in need through Reach Out And Read!



 Anypro 3.5L Cool Mist Humidifier. This may not be a toy that baby will play with, but I promise it will be a life saver for parents! It is an amazing humidifier-we keep ours running constantly at our home. It is quiet, features antibacterial material to suppress mold growth and even has variable nightlights. For my readers, Anypro is also offering a special deal to my readers!

Fisher Price Infant To Toddler Rocker. How cool is this? I am all about products that transition with baby and this sure does!


Nuby Icybite Teething Keys. These have been a lifesaver with our little one during teething. They are easy to throw in the diaper bag and are easy to clean if they get dropped in the floor. Plus, they seem to be the one toy that our little one likes when he is super fussy from teething.
