Your littlest love can't create their own holiday wish list—so we did it for them.

When it comes to giving gifts for newborn babies, it can be tough to find the perfect present. After all, your littlest love can't create their own wish list. Some of the best gifts for newborns, in fact, are actually gifts for parents of newborns—whether it's a swoon-worthy sweater set they'd never have bought themselves or something to make life with a little one a smidge easier. But the softest booties, graphic flashcards and sweet shakers we've rounded up here are sure to delight that little babe, too.

From NYC pride to California dreamin’, we just can’t get enough of the wanderlusty sleepers from new comers Smaller Things. Each of the four location-inspired prints (NYC, LA, Texas and Chicago) are hand-illustrated with iconic sights and symbols on cozy organic cotton for sweet dreams that can take them anywhere.

Does it get any more darling? This long-sleeved knit coverall is just the type of future heirloom piece to gift to a loved one with a new babe.

We love Lovevery’s play kits, which feature developmentally appropriate toys and come complete with a booklet of tips to make the most of that tummy time.

A lovey that vibrates *and* plays music? The Chill Vibes Walrus is sure to be your baby’s number one take-along buddy.

A beautiful affirmation cuff as a reminder of how much your kiddo…

The combination of soft silicone beads and textured wooden rings makes for an ideal teether to help soothe sore gums. A smart stocking stuffer for new parents.

High contrast, graphic images are captivating for newborns, and these fun flashcards can help make that time in between feeding and napping more engaging.

You can’t have enough of these bandana bibs for sopping up dribbled milk and drool all in the name of keeping clothes dry (read: less laundry for tired parents).

Littles will love snuggling up with this soft organic cotton lovey, and they’ll be able to work on their palmar grasp, too, thanks to the handy knot ties on the corners and sweet floppy ears.

The timeless classic gets a gorgeous update thanks to the spellbinding illustrations of Jan Brett. Start a holiday tradition of reading this tale aloud to your infant on their first Christmas Eve—you’ll both cherish the ritual for years to come.

It’s never too early to start stimulating that developing brain, and the Monti Kids Montessori Newborn Kit has everything new parents need to promote skills like early body control and concentration.

For everything from tummy time to impromptu park playdates to messes big and small, the Gathre mini mat is a game-changer. It packs up small, wipes clean and comes in an array of beautiful solid shades or muted yet graphic prints.

Just one q: Do these come in adult sizes?

A staple in Montessori and Waldorf classrooms, the Grimm’s stacking bowls can become a tall tower to knock down, a place to hide small toys, or a colorful mountain landscape.

It’s never to early to start a bedtime reading tradition, and this lyrical picture book is a perfect addition to any library.

What’s sweeter than a snuggly sherpa bear? This top-rated bunting sack is a must for long bassinet strolls in colder climes. We also love these pour maman.

A sweet and chic gift for baby’s first meal, parents will especially love the neutral color palette and the fact that the bowl features a suction cup underneath (hopefully fewer messes!).

A special sweater to grow into always makes for a sweet gift, and this cozy oversized knit is sure to last for more than one season.

When little babes graduate from swaddles to a sleep sack, this organic cotton quilted version from Coyuchi is our pick for the sweetest (and softest) dreams.

My best friend gifted me a set of these charming hand-crocheted rattles in the shape of veggies when my son was an infant, and these still make an appearance in his beloved play kitchen now that he’s a toddler.

Regale that little love with tales of Peter Rabbit, Flopsy, Mopsy and the rest of the gang with this collection of stories that’s sure to be treasured for ages. Perfect for read-aloud storytime.
