Lovevery Play Gym

Modern, beautiful, easy to use, organics sustainable, and easy to adapt as your child gets older. There are a few play gyms that meet some of those criteria, but none that cover them all until the Lovevery Play Gym.


Modern in style with wood legs, this play gym is easy to set up and comes with a variety of toys and accessories.

The side panels unfold to reveal five different development zones.

And the biggest game changer is the cover that turns this infant toy into a toddler tent.

How perfect?! The Play Gym from Lovevery retails for $140 and can be ordered via our amazon affiliate. This play gym is going straight to the top of my favorites list!

Modern Baby Gifts from Nambé

I have been known to put a lot of pressure on myself when it comes to shopping for just the right gift, but for new baby or first birthdays, the baby and kids gift items from Nambé really hit the mark.

My favorite piece is the Kibo Piggy Bank. It’s a minimal and durable design by Alvaro Uribe done in a modern Stainless Steel and Acacia Wood combination.

The dining pieces make incredible gifts and you should take a look at the Kibo Toddler Flatware Set, Baby Dish and the Baby Cup as well as the Baby Nambé Feeding Set  (shown below).

Another really unique gift is the Belo First Tooth & Curl Box. Many parents save things like this, but this is the way to turn them into a really treasured keepsake.

Go-To Baby Shower Gifts 2014

As readers of Buy Modern Baby, you’re not just looking for the most exceptional products for your own kids, I know you love to share the best baby products with your friends and loved ones.  When it comes to giving baby shower gifts, you’ve got a secret weapon here since my eyes are open looking for this type of thing all year long.  These are my picks for the best go-to baby shower gifts that will wow moms-to-be this year.

It’s the best gift that they didn’t even know that they wanted.  The Puj Splash Bath Set includes the Flyte compact infant bath that fits in the sink, a Hug hands-free hooded infant towel, 3 Puj Nubs and 3 washcloths all packed in a beautiful gift box.  $75

A smaller but equally lovely gift is the Baby Grooming Kit from Rhoost.  This includes a hairbrush, comb, nail clipper and washcloth in an easy to wrap box.   Everything is 100% natural and organic. $35

Personalized baby blankets are always a popular gift.  We loved the one we got, but we would have been so much more excited to get one of the incredibly cool personalized baby blankets from Jennifer Ann.  Anything with your baby’s name on it is an instant treasure, and these are a perfect modern option.  $56-$84


If you don’t have time for the custom options, a pack of aden + anais muslin swaddle blankets ($40-$50) is a can’t-miss idea.  Even if someone else gifts a set, you can never have too many.  I’ve even been planning to get an aden + anais blanket for my biggest baby, aka my husband!  The Classic Daydream Blanket will be perfect for HIS naps, but don’t tell him I said that.

The super practical shower gift is diapers and wipes, so unless you know they’re going to be using cloth diapers, a diapers and wipes bundle from The Honest Co. is the most stylish, modern, eco-friendly version.  Diapers are stylish?  Yeah, these kinda are.  Start with The Honest New Baby Arrival Kit ($50) or step up to a month of Honest diapers and wipes ($80).

Some additional reader suggestions from Facebook included Boon grass, books (which I love to give), a gift certificate from Chloe Marty and a sound machine.

New Addition: BuyModernBabyGifts

One of the most exciting days for buymodernbaby is the addition of a new guide.  Today I am releasing buymodernbabygifts.  This one has been brewing for a long time and I am excited to premiere it tonight.

There many different types of gifts that are wonderful for baby showers, new baby gifts or first birthday presents.


Many people love to buy clothes and there are so many wonderful gift sets that would thrill any new mother.  I do not claim to be an expert in fashion, so if you would like to give clothing, I’m sure there are lots of other guides that find the most interesting, most comfortable or the most stylist baby clothes.


Gifts from a family’s registry are always welcome (though I’m sure you’ll agree that many first time parents have no idea what they really will or won’t need).  I never did register for anything when I was expecting but many people take the time to select what they would like and don’t really want anything extra.


I think books are always a wonderful gift and my favorite baby books are on buymodernbooks.


I also think that a bathtub and some bath toys and towels make wonderful gifts.  Lots of these items are on buymodernbathroom.


A baby bouncer from buymodernbabyseats or bassinet from buymodernbassinets are perfect if you are feeling really generous.


For anything else that doesn’t fit in the other lists, I have put together buymodernbabygifts.  It is a guide with all the little treasures that make special and memorable gifts to gift and receive.  I have broken the items down by price point and there is something to fit every budget.  I’d love to hear your comments and any other gift ideas you may have!
