Baby shower season is here, and we have hunted down some of the most beautiful gifts around. While buying something from a registry is always safe (and obviously deeply appreciated), choosing a unique gift on your own for an expecting friend can often be an extra-thoughtful gesture. Click through to see several lovely gender-neutral gifts that any new mom would be delighted to receive on behalf of her sweet babe.

Estella Romper + Rattle Set ($42–$58): The super-soft bamboo jumpsuit and organic rattle are both practical and playful. The rattle makes a gentle sound that babies will love—plus, it’s easy for tiny hands to grab!
Solly Baby Wrap ($65): Anyone who has ever cared for newborns knows how often they love to be held and snuggled. These wraps will give your multitasking mama-friend the chance to provide some hands-free nurturing.
Freshly Picked Crib Moccasins ($45): Tiny moccs for tiny feet. Made to fit babies who are less than six months old, they stay on much better than socks do!
Modern Burlap Swaddle Blanket ($26): These gorgeous cotton muslin blankets can serve so many purposes. Use them as a swaddle, a stroller blanket, a burp cloth, a way to let baby roll around on the floor or, in a pinch, a nursing cover!
Puj Hug Towel ($35): This towel is such a life saver come bath time! It actually fastens around the neck, helping moms pick up and dry off slippery babes with minimal frustration.
Childhoods Handmade Shorties ($30): Is there anything quite as lovely as the sight of chunky baby thighs? We think not. These shorties were clearly made with that sentiment in mind—they’re extra-short, ensuring maximum thigh exposure.
Rylee + Cru Onesies ($39): Designed by our friend Kelli Murray, the Rylee + Cru collection is sweet, soft and modern. These onesies are sure to be cherished. We’re partial to the cactus print—this one could be worn by boys or girls!
