Baby Gifts + Gear from the Nordstrom Sale

For all my moms-to-be or new mommas:  the Nordstrom sale is the best hidden jackpot for buying baby gifts or needed registry items. While some think the sale only pertains to new fall clothes and shoes, many forget the awesome deals you can catch in the baby department. This is the perfect time to load up on baby shower gifts!

It’s also a great time to fill in the gaps from your registry, or cross off those items you’ve noticed you need. Example? Jack has grown out of his infant carseat, so now we’re looking into the ‘big boy’ carseat. Right now, he’s in the Nuna Pipa and we love it. I’m actually really sad to have to see it go. It’s the lightest on the market (which makes a big difference as they get bigger), and Jack actually loves sitting in it. For our replacement, Nordstrom is offering this Maxi-Cosi style for under $300! Also, if you’re in the market for a stroller, the Nuna has a great all-purpose system or you can invest in a jogger like this one.

Other Gear: 

We love putting Jack in our carrier when we’re walking to the park, or trekking through airports. He loves facing out! Also, if you’re considering a pack and play – this one is amazing. We use it everywhere – grandparents house, trips, as a playpen around the house. They’re super handy and it’s important to find one that’s easy to assemble and carry.

When it comes to bottles and baby dishes, I never thought I’d be so enthusiastic about this drying rack (fondly referred to as ‘the lawn’) and baby food maker. Since Jack is full on solids now, anything that can make meal prep easier I’m into!

Great Gifts: 

I cant speak highly enough about these Little Giraffe blankets. We have two, and they’re Jack’s all time favorite blankets – one is always in his hand.  These swaddle blankets are also everywhere around our house. Perfect multi-purpose, and you can never have too many.  Last on the blanket front: these adorable personalized blankets. How fun are these for a gift!? As a new mom, I can’t get enough of Jack’s monogram.

Bathtime favorites: we’re full on Honest Company users in our household. The diapers are amazing, and we love their bath and safe household products. This gift set is a perfect sampling of all the great products they have to offer! Also, my love for the Little Giraffe brand extends to bath time – they have the coziest towels that we love to use!

Clothing favorites: onesies are always a hit for gifting. This one is perfect for those chilly morning walks. I also have an obsession with baby moccasins – how fun are these!? If you know the gender of a friends baby, it’s always fun to stock their closet with fun little outfits like this one or this one.  I also couldn’t resist buying my little fox a few sweaters for fall 🙂
