Real Mom Talk: Go-to Gifts
December 8, 2015 7:06 pm | by

Screen Shot 2015-12-08 at 8.02.19 PMThe clock is winding down! There are only about three weeks left of the holiday shopping season. Now is the time to finalize your lists and wrap things up — literally! If you’re still undecided about what to get that special baby, child, or mama in your life, look no further. The Cotton Babies Go-To Gift Guide is here!

For Baby: The good thing about babies is that they aren’t old enough to judge you for the type of gifts you give! Anything goes! You can give something practical like bibs, sippy cups, teething toys, and of course, cloth diapers with matching Genius Tees! (Check out our Bundles of Joy deals on BumGenius, Flip, and Econobum!) Books (like Indestructibles) are always a good gift to give. Or make baby stylish with handmade booties, BabyLegs, or this adorable KicKeePants’ gown and hat set.

For Toddlers and Big Kids: Give ‘em toys, of course! They are Santa’s specialty after all! And right now at Cotton Babies, all toys are 20% off! Green Toys are one of my personal favorites because they are made with recycled materials and have a slightly retro design and bright colors. Plan Toys are great, too! Other cute gift ideas include: art supplies, new shoes, rainy day gear, or anything that encourages outdoor activity.

For Mama: Your coworker who just returned from maternity leave would love this cute travel coffee mug with a gift card to her favorite coffee shop. Any practical mom-to-be would appreciate high-quality necessities, like maternity wear, nursing bras, or sleepwear. Tula baby carriers are also in high demand! For the mom who likes a little bit of pampering, try giving her an aden + anais bamboo adult blanket paired with a gift certificate for a pedicure, some fancy makeup, or a new scarf!

The countdown is officially on! Visit for even more great buys — and sales!
