Maybe it’s just my friend group, but EVERYONE seems to be pregnant around me these days. And while my usual gift guides focus on everyone on your list who may be hard to shop for, this year I’ve decided to go a more specific approach.While there are a lot of baby registry suggestion guides already out there, I’ve made it a point to find unique gifts for my friends and family that are expecting little ones soon.

(My previous guides can be found here: Gift Ideas for the Impossible People on Your List, here: Gift Ideas for The Extra Impossible People on Your List, here: Unique, Affordable Stocking Stuffers That Won’t Make You Fat, and here: Non Cheesy Free or Almost Free Gift Ideas).

I’ve been doing this research for the past couple of months anyway to buy baby shower gifts and holiday presents so here I am sharing my findings with you! Let me know if I missed any perfect, unique baby gifts for new parents that you love to give or receive.

Categories include: Better Versions of Common Registry Items, Great Inventions, Unique Toys Even Mom & Dad Will Love, Everyday General Items Parents May Forget to Buy Themselves, and The Not So Unique Must-Haves.

And be sure to scroll to the bottom for a chance to win a dream registry for yourself or your loved one!
