Ultra soft organic cotton makes for baby safe snuggles, and for bonus baby shower points, you can get add a custom embroidered baby name or monogram!
Baby booties that stay put and look chic.
Finding shoes and socks that will stay on tiny feet is ALWAYS a challenge. For baby boy parents in cold climates, nothing beats UGG Baby’s Bixbie Booties. Hook and loop closures make them easy to take on and off, and their fuzzy faux-fur exterior guarantees baby boy will be a tiny newborn trendsetter.
A sweetly personalized picture book.
Wonderbly’s The Little Boy Who Lost His Name is a storybook that morphs to match baby boy’s chosen moniker. A little boy named Ben might meet a Bear, while Huck might run into a Hippo.

JuJuBe’s XY collection was designed with dad in mind, and the backpack style and variety of practical pockets are perfect for any boy parent on the go. Padded, ergonomic straps keep parents comfy, and it’s machine washable in case of the inevitable mess or spill.
No matter how prepared new parents are, raising baby boys is full of joy, adventure, exhaustion, and a whole lot of surprises.
