The news is out! If you missed it, I recently announced that our family is growing, and we are expecting baby #3 this upcoming year in 2022, and we are so excited about it! A lot of you have told me you guys are also pregnant as well and are due on or around the same time as I am, which makes it even more exciting! So, I thought I would put together a special HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR NEW MOMS AND BABY for those of you who are either expecting, have babies, or have someone on your list who is. Being a mom can be challenging and overwhelming (especially for new moms) so making their life a little easier or special with gifts they’ll love and use is something they will highly appreciate.
A lot of these items are things I have used with Edison and Lucy, and consider must have items. I seriously swear by them, and will be using them again when baby comes. I’ve also included items that I have my eye on and are high on my list for this year (like the Doona car seat/stroller 😉). Lastly, I also made sure to include tons of budget friendly options, as well as a few at a higher price point that are well worth every penny.
