The best gifts are often the ones that you didn't know you need, so we've thought of personalized, sentimental, and useful presents that will be treasured for years to come. 

From a sweet rocker to an adorable robe we've got the best baby girl gifts to give to the new addition and growing family. 

Our Top Picks

Personalized Blanket

These large, personalized, super-soft blankets will be a forever keepsake for any new parent. Each blanket is 36” x 36”, large enough to fully cover a standard crib or easily take anywhere baby goes. Each blanket is made of a lightweight cuddly fleece that is perfect for all seasons. And the wide satin ribbon will be a baby favorite, as many little ones love to rub the silky satin on their cheeks or between their fingers for soothing. We love the personalized script lettering on the blanket with two elegant designs to choose from. You also have a choice between two adorable characterized bunnies holding a scroll with baby’s name and birthdate or simply a script name. And one of the best features of all is that these precious blankets are machine washable — mamas will thank you for that!

Rockabye Owlivia Pink Owl Rocker, One Size

Yeah, we know...this is the cutest! This plush Owlivia rocker will absolutely be a baby favorite. Ideal for little legs to climb onto (approx 17” high), Owlivia will give baby hours of rocking and playing fun. The rocker plays 4 original songs that baby can easily activate by pushing the shapes on the back of Owlivia’s head. Mom and dad will love that the tail acts as a firm supportive backrest, the body is made of easy-to-wipe-clean plush, and the base is crafted from solid hardwood maple. Owlivia’s songs are designed to help baby learn their ABC’s and 123’s all while keeping busy. This is designed for children 9 months and up and will support up to 80 pounds.

These stickers are simply adorable and come complete with all 12 months plus four additional milestone stickers. Each peel-and-stick is 4 inches in diameter and has a matte finish so there won’t be a glare in photos. Simply put baby in a favorite outfit, peel and stick the appropriate month to baby, snap a few pics, and then easily remove the sticker from the outfit without leaving any residue on baby’s clothing.
