When it comes to new baby gifts, there is nothing better than baby gifts that give back!  A gift that not only brings joy to the recipient, but brings joy to others in the world as well! Whether it’s giving ideas to those around you, or buying for a friend who is expecting, these gifts are sure to bring happiness all around!

STATE Backpacks


For every bag purchased, one fully-stocked backpack is hand delivered to a local child in need. They are gorgeous, and if there’s one thing I know about kids, they come with a lot of stuff. Stuff on top of stuff. So no matter if you turn it into a full diaper bag, or the extra bag for traveling, Mom (and Dad) will be sure to put it to use!



Every doll gives 10 meals to children in need. The dolls are BEYOND adorable. So soft, so cuddly, and so well made. They are hand-knit in Peru using sustainable, fair trade practices. So not only does Cuddle+Kind donate meals, they are helping create jobs in Peru. It’s a beautiful win/win all around.

Grounds and Hounds Coffee Co.


Know someone having a baby who is also a dog-lover? You can’t go wrong with Grounds & Hounds Coffee Co.! They make fair trade organic, specialty coffees to support the no kill rescue organizations providing safe-havens for pups between homes. 20% of all  proceeds will be donated to rescue partners working to make the second-chance mission a reality. Supporting pups as well as giving new parents the incredibly necessary gift of caffeine? Sounds like a winner to me!

Cookies For Kids’ Cancer


Cookies for Kids’ Cancer™ provides annual research grants to seven of the nation’s leading pediatric cancer centers to advance the development of new, improved, & less toxic treatments for children battling cancer. There’s nothing like finally putting baby down for the night and enjoying a sweet treat! You could even make a home-cooked meal for the new parents, and top it off with some cancer fighting cookies.

My B. Toys


For every toy purchased, B. toys gives a portion of sales to Free The Children, a charity that works to free children from poverty and exploitation and free young people from the notion that they are powerless to effect positive change. They are the cutest toys ever. I just love the colors and designs they use, and there are so many great options to choose from.
