Deck the halls and get ready for the jolly because the holidays are here and we are as excited as ever to celebrate with you. This year Momtrends has teamed up with five other elves (Glamamom, The Chirping Moms, Stroller in the City, Our Family Lifestyle, Divine Lifestyle) to help bring you a holiday gift guide that has the top gifts of the season.
Each day for the next seven days, we will bring you a new category from our holiday gift guide. To kick off the holiday gift guide, we bring you our Great Gifts for Babies. It's filled with must-have gifts for baby because resident expert mama (newborn in tow!), Jill, over at Glamamom curated it.
While our littlest gift recipients may not be sharing their wish list with Santa just yet, our veteran moms know just what gifts will wow. We've brought you gifts for baby; some practical, some indulgent, all of them part of the 2017 must-haves gift list for babes.
1. cuddle+kind's ethically-produced, hand-knit dolls aren't just adorable, they help feed children. For every cuddle+kind doll sold, 10 meals are donated to families in need.

The perfect keepsake for the little doll in your life.

The Birds of Paradise and Butterfly Collection are favorites.
