10 Useful Infant Christmas Gifts

What do you get for a baby for Christmas? Lincoln is really getting into some bigger toys now that he's over 1, but those early months keep most people wonder what gifts they should buy. Here are some tried and true gifts that we've given our babies that will be perfect for yours!

10 Useful Infant Christmas Gifts, Gift Guide 0-12 months

1. Convertible Carseat - The Maxi-Cosi Pria 85 is my favorite baby seat by far and I love the coziness of this blue from their Sweater Knit Collection! It also comes in pink or grey and is a fantastic gift because it's useful and also a large gift to unwrap.

Lincoln now has one in each car and he thinks this one is pretty Christmas cozy.

2. Fisher-Price Soother - All that shushing and bouncing can wear parents out. Try this little bear that vibrates and sings to calm your little one. It worked like a charm for us in the car. 

3. Banana Teether - I bought this because I thought it was just so cute and Lincoln has loved it. 

4. Tommee Tippee Easy Scoop Bowl - These are BPA free and have a easy scoop triangle bottom to get that last bite out. You can get them in 4 pack, or in a pack with a lid and spoon for eating on the go. 

5. Fisher Price Bright Beats - Lincoln got this for Christmas last year, at 3.5 months old. He loved laying under it and seeing the lights. This year, he uses it all the time, walking around it and playing his own music. 

6. Skip Hop Bath Toy Mix - Bath toys are still top of the list for Lincoln this year since he loves baths. This soft set is perfect to give infants something to look at in the tub. 

7. Sophie the Giraffe - The same on giraffe has made it through all 3 of my boys. It's a classic for little teethers!

8. Munchkin Tug Along Boat - Every baby needs a boat in the tub! This is has a spinning wheel when you pour water out the front and a couple cute little animal captains. 

9. Oball - This is one of my favorite toys. Babies love rolling balls and this one is great to help with their grasping skills. We have several different ones, but the rainstick adds some extra fun. 

10. Tommee Tippee Easy-Mat - This mat can be used with the bowls above, but it's a miracle worker. Stick it to the high chair and the bowl suctions down to it. If your baby isn't tossing dishes overboard yet, trust me, they will. Go ahead and get this mat now! 

I will be doing gift guides over the next couple of weeks for each of my boys age groups. I'm so lost in the girl aisle, so for the sake of my 5 nieces, let me know if you have a must buy for the little gals!

Knots, Stripes and Rips

Casual seems to be the style I most often revert to and this old school Adidas sneaker trend is really helping my cause. They're great for running around with the boys!

Girlfriends Cozy Gift Guide (Under $50!)

This is my first of a few gift guides this season! I've picked out some things that I think will help you when you're shopping for your mom, your husband, your kids, a hostess or yourself! I'll have a link on the sidebar so you can find them all easily and you can either click right on the image, or in the descriptions below. 

Today is all about cozy! If you're shopping for your girlfriends, your mom, mother-in-law or sisters, you can find some great things here and they're all under $50!

Snow Day Pajamas - How cute are these? I love having new pjs, especially in the winter. This set comes in 6 different festive prints. 

Fleece Lined Socks - I usually wear slippers, but I think I want to try these fleece lined socks. Great option for chillier climates!

Flannel Lounge Pants - Basic pj pant, but this one is kicked up a notch with the jogger cuff hem. 

Freaking Cold Sweatshirt - My mom seriously needs this. She is cold in Florida in July. I think we all have someone who needs this sweatshirt!

Stripe Monogram Throw - I love anything with a monogram on it, mostly because my sisters can't steal it. Blanket included. 

Buffalo Plaid Scarf - This neutral version of the blanket scarf is hugely popular this year and this one is under $15!

Cold Outside Pillow - A great addition to anyone's living room for the winter. 

Cable Knit Gloves - These look so cozy, come in 3 colors and are under $10!

Capri Blue Candle - This is hands down my favorite candle. It smells absolutely amazing and you can get this one to you in 2 days!

Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate - I can't resist cocoa in the winter, but this more grown up version would be especially hard to say no to. 

Polka Dot Monogram Mug - More monograms, please! This is a great gift for just about any gal on your list, is $12 and ships free. 

Faux Fur Pillow - You can't have a cozy gift guide without some faux fur. I love this pillow cover and it would look great by a fireplace!

I'll be sharing some great Black Friday deals tomorrow, so check back for lots of great sales! 


Cozy in Athleisure

Monday isn't as hard to accept when you know it's a short week, huh? We're at the beach right now and today I'm going to start prepping things for when my family gets here on Wednesday. Including ordering a fried turkey...the most delicious food of Thanksgiving! 

This look was from North Carolina before we left, but I packed this outfit. I can't get enough of this cozy J. Jill Tencel Tunic

Shop The Look:

Have y'all tried the Polar Seltzer seasonal varities? I get really excited for food that is seasonal (chocolate covered Ritz anyone?) but I love the seltzer flavors this winter. And I can guarantee I get a lot of hydrating because it's delicious. I get mine in a huge pack at BJs, but I'm sure they have it other places! 

Hope y'all have a great Monday!
