My Favorite Holiday Gifts for Babies (Hint: The Cutest Gift Sets Ever)

It's fun to give toys and clothing items as gifts for new babies and/or for the holidays, but I especially love the idea of putting together beautifully styled gift sets that include a mix of sweet and practical items. There's just something special about handing a present to a new mom or dad for their little one that contains cute, well-made clothing items along with a toy or blanket or unique keepsake. It's my favorite kind of gift to give for the holidays.

The adorable gift sets you see in these photos all come Elegant Baby, who you may remember from other posts I've done featuring their Princess Mousie collection and my favorite baby boy clothing items. I've really fallen in love with this brand over the last few months, so they were one of the first places I looked for holiday gift ideas for friends with babies. EB Gift Sets are filled with stylish, beautiful crafted baby goodies (from clothes to blankets to towels to toys) in gorgeously packaged boxes. And the fact that they are so perfectly coordinated makes shopping infinitely easier - which is a big deal any time of the year, but even moreso during the craziness of the holiday season. There is also the option of getting items in the set personalized with monogramming - making them truly one-of-a-kind.

One of my dear friends had a little girl in October, and I decided the perfect gift for her would be the Pink Stripes Gift Set, which features a sweet jumpsuit and matching hat (with ears!), a plush bunny, and a super soft blanket - all in classic pink and white stripes. We also got the jumpsuit and hat monogrammed with baby girl's initials. The 4 piece set arrived in Elegant Baby's beautiful signature gift box, ready to go. Everything in it is absolutely lovely, and both Essley and I are so excited to give it to her!

We also got a sweet surprise of our own when our friends at Elegant Baby sent us one of their fantastic gift sets, the Baby Boy's First Jeans Set, for our newest little one (who is set to make his appearance in just a few weeks!). I was elated when I opened the gift - which was beautifully packaged and tied up with a baby blue ribbon - and saw the contents. The first thing I noticed was the cute keepsake box (which can be personalized with the baby's name and all the important baby gifting details) that contained what was by far the most adorable pair of baby jeans I've ever seen. The denim is super soft in denim (engineered especially for babies!) with the sweetest blue gingham lining. The gift set also included a classic cable knit button down pastel blue sweater and matching hat. I can't wait to see Baby Boy all decked out in these fresh duds.

If you're a fan of beautiful gift sets for new babies and/or holiday gifts, here's a special treat for you: use promo code "SHOP25" to save 25% off the purchase of any EB Gift Set. I can't recommend their darling line of products enough. They're top notch you guys.

Oh, and Essley's fancy Christmas Headband is also from Elegant Baby. She calls it her "snowflake band." I have a feeling she'll be getting a lot of wear over it in the next few weeks.

Who else loves giving gift sets as baby gifts? What kinds of presents will you be getting for the little ones in your life this season?
