Our Top Picks

Best Book: Snuggle Puppy! (Boynton on Board)

Snuggle Puppy!

This sweet book is the perfect Valentine’s Day addition to baby’s library. You’ll read (and sing) this book year-round for years to come. It’s a board book version of one of Sandra Boynton’s catchy songs, “Snuggle Puppy.” The adorable illustrations bring it to life in vivid colors.

You can’t help but smile as you read passages like “Snuggle Puppy of mine! Everything about you is especially fine. I love what you are. I love what you do. Fuzzy little Snuggle Puppy, I love you.”

Best Picture Frame: CustomGiftsNow I Love You To The Moon And Back

This picture frame is a standing reminder of just how much you love your little one. “I love you to the moon and back” is laser-engraved onto this wooden frame. Simple stars and a crescent moon add a touch of whimsy. The frame fits a 4x6 picture. It has hooks so you can hang it on the wall and even an easel in case you’d rather proudly display it on a desk or shelf.

Best Stuffed Animal: Pink Piglet Nursery Plush Medium

The baby in your life is sure to be delighted by the sight of this adorable pink piglet. It's super soft, has a sweet expression on its face, and even has a curly little tail, making it the perfect item for baby to cuddle.

It’s made of polyester, and it’s BPA, phthalate, and lead-free. It’s recommended for all ages (though you should always supervise babies around stuffed animals). This featured size is medium, but it also comes in small and large sizes in case you want to deliver a whole litter of piglets for extra Valentine’s Day love.

Best Clothing for Baby Girl: Baby Girl First Valentine's Day Outfit

This Valentine’s getup for girls is seriously cute! It comes with a onesie which is decorated with a heart and lettering that reads, "My 1st Valentine’s Day." To top this off is a red six-layer tutu with a glittery gold bow. The final accent piece to the ensemble is a headband with a glittery gold bow to match the tutu.

It comes sizes small (0-3 months) through extra-large (12-24 months) and is made of soft cotton. Customers say this outfit is every bit as adorable as it looks and that it’s made well, too. Some reviewers note, however, that it runs quite large, so you may want to size down. Perfect for parties and pictures, it’s such a sweet way to celebrate the holiday. Since the pieces are separate, you can wear the skirt long after February, or at least as long as it still fits your growing baby.

Best Clothing for Baby Boy: Tcombo Mommy Is My Valentine

This one is a gift that's sure to deliver a heartwarming sentiment. “Mommy is My Valentine” is printed in white on the front of this black onesie, with two red hearts on either side. It's simple, yet it makes such a sweet statement.

It’s made of 100 percent preshrunk cotton, so it’s very comfortable and even has snaps at the bottom for easy diaper changes. It comes in sizes from newborn to 24 months, so you are sure to find one that fits the baby in your life.

Best Rattle: Bright Starts Rattle and Shake Barbell Rattle

This cute little rattle will shake up Valentine’s Day in the best possible way. From Bright Starts, it features a pretty pink heart filled with colorful beads as well as a round ball with more beads on top. It’s easy for babies to grasp and good for their auditory and visual development. At a low price, it’s easy on your budget, too. Another plus: part of the proceeds are donated to breast cancer research.

Customers give this rattle high marks. Some say their babies love it so much that they’ve purchased more than one rattle in case one gets lost. It’s a great gift alone, but it also makes a cute present-topper if you tie it up inside of a bow.

Best Bib: Valentine's Day Pink & White Elephant with Red Bow Tie Baby Bib

This bib lets everyone know that it’s baby’s first Valentine’s Day. Festive in red and pink, it features a sweet little patchwork elephant who sports a very dapper bowtie. This one checks both the practical and sentimental boxes.

It’s great for Valentine’s Day parties, dining out in style, and photo ops. It’s the perfect accessory to top baby's other Valentine’s Day duds as well, so every layer is festive.
