Kissy Kissy 2021 Holiday Gift Guide
Posted on November 03 2021
Shopping for friends or family with new additions can prove to be a challenge—what might they need, what might they want and what might they already have?
For this article, we’re hoping to take some of the guesswork out of holiday giving by offering a number of unique gift ideas for baby (and some for mama!) for each stage of development.
There are few more joyous (and anxiety-inducing) occasions than bringing baby home. For new parents and newborns, we’ve put together a number of elegant gift sets to give, or to get, with everything baby needs for a cozy homecoming. Here are two of our favorites:
For the gals, the Garden Roses Gift Set with hat, bib and footie that can also be paired with the Mommy and Me Nightgown for a cute matching style.
For the boys, we like the Blue Stripes Bundle, which also comes with a smart, snap-front cardigan. This too can be paired with the Mommy and Me Nightgown.
Our sets are made from 100% Pima Cotton for incredible softness and a luxurious texture.
0 -3 Months
Between their homecoming and the three-month mark, baby and mama both will be settling into their new lives together and there will be a lot of firsts! First baths, first burps and first tummy times just to name a few. Even though it may be messy (for a while!) there’s no reason your baby can’t be as darling as they are cozy and comfy.
We’re going gaga for our Strawberry Soiree Bubble and really love to up the cute factor with the matching headband.
We brought the classic teething toy, Sophie la Girafe, to our Boy’s Sophie la Giraffe Collection. While we’re big fans of the whole suite, we particularly enjoy the sophisticatedly soft Sophie la Girafe Print Bodysuit and Zip Front footie.
3 – 6 Months
During the 3 – 6 months age range, baby might begin sleeping on their own through the night (hopefully!) so you should strive to make her as comfy and cozy as possible. We think our Snuggle Bags (or Wearable Blankets) are just the thing to help keep baby sleeping soundly.
Truthfully, we like all of our gift sets for baby so it’s hard to focus on just one. But the Aviator Gift Set has such a timeless quality to it. This baby gift set, which can be purchased in three different age ranges, includes a footie for sleep or play with a matching cozy hat, a bib & burp cloth and a coordinating, softer than softer heirloom quality blanket and are all made from 100% Pima Cotton. The sky’s the limit!
6 – 9 Months
Right around the six-months mark baby will just about be ready to enjoy pureed food. With this change, comes a whole new set of challenges (many of them for your washer and dryer) but we’ve got just the bibs for that!
Our precious days of the week bibs are designed to help get you through the week between washes. Best of all, they’re available for both girls and boys!
By 9-months, you might be ready to bring baby out and about to show her off to friends and family. Make sure baby looks her best with the Sophie la Girafe Pink Print playsuit, which is available along with the rest of our stylish Sophie looks in our Girl’s Sophie la Giraffe Collection.
But we haven’t forgotten about the guys either. We’re big fans of our entire Navy Stripes line, and the Navy Broad Stripes Zip PJ is certainly no exception. Even though these PJs are poised to be super-comfy when its bedtime, we think they’re just as smart for an afternoon on the town!
A year in, baby is looking and sounding a lot less like a baby! These pre-toddlers might be walking and talking and you’ll be eagerly anticipating their first birthday so make sure they look their best. Both the Strawberry Soiree Sleeveless Playsuit and the Navy Stripes Toddler Set have a casual sophistication but are, importantly, machine washable. So, go ahead, let them eat cake!
… And Beyond
By now, baby is toddling around and growing up all too fast. Whether she’s taking on the world in the Strawberry Soiree Toddler Dress or cozying up at home in the our super-soft 100% Pima cotton Slippery Slopes Pajama Set, she’ll be prepared for whatever’s next.
Bonus: Holiday Fun
Of course, it wouldn’t be a holiday gift guide without some holiday-themed gifts.
Help your kiddo drift into dreamland on each of those eight nights with the My First Hanukkah Gift Set.
Or, be prepared for a giggle-fit with our adorable Santa’s Antics Playsuit and stocking hat, both made from plush velour (beard not included).
Paired with our Reindeer blanket, baby will be ready for the comfiest winter on record.
