Gift Guides for Dads, Mom Friends, Kids & Newborns

Dan’s love languages are acts of service and gifts so I’ve come to appreciate them - giving and receiving, so this year I was happy to put together gift guides for the season during my own night feeding slash online shopping sessions. I tend to think guides are just starting points since presents are super personal so all of the below is just that - my personal lists for the people I love. 



In our household, wishlist electronics, chic apparel or an elegant activity to do together goes a long way.  This is my short list for partners: 

1. All Birds Men’s Loungers

2. Shinola Men’s Wallet

3. Scrabble Luxury Edition

4.  Bose Noise Canceling Sleep Buds 

5. Thule Urban Glide Jogging Stroller

6. Amazon Echo Dot

Mom Friends


I don’t get too spendy with my friends but a small something for organization, productivity or self care says, “I get it.” These are my favorites: 

1. Bandolier phone case 

2. Herbivore Botanicals Rose Quartz Facial Roller 

3. Dear Mom Wine 

4. “Becoming”

5. Golden Coil customizable planner 

6. Lunya sleep mask



Bodie is past the time where he needed loads of knick knacks to stay entertained and rather, he’s at an age now where I want to invest in fewer, better pieces that’ll serve us for a few years.  I love these: 

1. Plum tutu (too cute).

2. Banwood Bike

3. Loog mini guitar 

4. Kiwi Crate Subscription

5. E&E teepees 

6. The Best Word Book Ever



Let’s be honest - gifts for infants are as much for the parent, so a lot of what I’ll gift (or want to receive) is elevated essentials that make newborn life a bit easier. I am so thankful to have received most of these as gifts this season:  

 1. Solly Baby Wrap

2. LoveEvery Play Gym

3. Charlie Crane Rocker 

4. Pehr Designs Mobile 

5. The Story of You

6. BONDS zipper footie
