Check em’ out below, snobs!
Balloon Dog Pillow
If you are an LA native, new resident, or even just a visitor, you have most likely seen the metal sculpture look-a-likes of this pillow used as home or office décor. Trendy LA store EGGY carries this pillow, which fits seamlessly with on-trend interior design and doubles as a cuddly companion for the baby.
Exclusive Couture Kids Gift Basket
$500 – $10,000
Can’t decide on just one gift? Get them all. Couture Kids on Robertson makes baskets depending on your budget and the gender of the baby, and it’s one of our go-to gifts when our friends are expecting. Some of the surprises inside include stuffed animals, designer outfits, teethers and blankies, all in impressive and chic packaging.
Halo Bassinest Luxe Swivel Sleeper
This is amazing because the bassinet swivels, so after my C-section with Zayden, I could lay on the bed and easily access Zayden by bringing the bassinet closer to me by using Halo’s swivel feature. The Halo also vibrates and plays music to help babys fall asleep, which is great for co-sleeping.
Baby Shusher “The Sleep Miracle”
This was a lifesaver for us when Zayden wouldn’t stop crying. I would put the Baby Shusher in his crib and stroller and he would immediately stop crying or even better, fall asleep! This truly was one of the best inventions. I owned 3 of them – one near his crib, one in his diaper bag, and of course – one in the car (this especially came in hand with all the L.A. traffic). You can easily find this item on Amazon.
Nuna MIXX Stroller & PIPA Lite LX Infant Car Seat Set Travel System
Since we travel so much, this stroller and car seat set was a must because it makes it so easy for us to travel with Zayden. The car seat is easy to install and the stroller makes bringing Zayden on errands uncomplicated, so we can be productive while having Zayden with us at all times. Plus, the storage under the stroller comes in handy to store shopping bags!
Sleepytime Rocker in Oatmeal
This “Nursery Works” product is the perfect merging point of a rocking chair and sophisticated décor. The solid ash hardwood legs are designed to create a gentle and soothing motion to nurse any crying baby back to sleep, and might even help the parents get more sleep as well!
Spa Day at the Montage
We know how hard it is to find time to relax and unwind when taking care of a newborn baby, which is why every new parent will be able to appreciate a spa treatment or two at a nice hotel or resort. Aren’t in the LA area? Not to worry! Choose another high-end spa in your town that you think the new parents would enjoy.
Nordstrom Baby Chenille Blanket
This is one of the softest blankets and is one of Zayden’s favorite. Nordstrom will also embroider the blanket with the baby’s name or monogram, which is awesome and totally personal!
Givenchy Kids Teddy Bear
This bear is the most chic and cuddliest buddy on the market, and is one of our son Zayden’s favorite toys. This lavish stuffed animal is made out of a luscious mixture of soft plush and padding, and is conveniently machine washable for any spills or mishaps. Find it at Couture Kids on Robertson or their online shop.
Doona Infant Car Seat and Stroller
This car seat is a celebrity favorite, stars like Jessica Alba, Bradley Cooper and Khloe Kardashian all love this stroller and car seat set. This is a great product because it is a two-in-one. This is a car seat, but when you take it out of the car, it turns into a stroller. How convenient is that?
Newborn Arrival Bath Time Gift Set
One of our favorite LA stores, Ron Robinson, carries this newborn must-have set. We love using these products for Zayden’s bath time because they are all natural and gentle on his skin, while still getting the job done. The goodies inside include five necessary and all-natural products: no-rinse cleansing water, Hydra Bēbē Body Lotion, foaming shampoo, and gentle cleansing gel.
Hermes Fresco Chrome Special Edition High Chair
When we were looking for highchairs, we couldn’t find one that really blended in with our home decor. Enter, The Hermes Frensco chair. This beautiful highchair blends functionality with sophistication, we plan on keeping it for any of Zayden’s future siblings.
Rainbow Inflatable Sprinkler
This Pottery Barn exclusive sprinkler is perfect for hot summer days and ideal for growing families who may already have a young toddler. We plan on getting one in a few years when Zayden is old enough to enjoy it. This sprinkler also comes in other colorful shapes such as a unicorn, dinosaur, and cactus.
Silver Cross Wave Stroller
The last of the many strollers on our list, this stroller combines two of our favorite things, luxury and efficiency. It can be used as a double stroller or you can add the ride on bar and it can carry three kids if needed. Even better, it’s very easy to maneuver when navigating the busy neighborhoods of Los Angeles.
We hope these gifts ideas are great inspiration to help you find the perfect gift, or even invest in a fun new product for your own family!
