Happy holiday season, everyone! We’re in the homestretch to Christmas and Hannukah, and with that comes finding the perfect gift for everyone on your list. Which is why I’m so excited to share today’s post with all of you! With baby number 5 on the way, I decided to put together a gift guide for the baby, the mama, and the mama-to-be! These are my absolute fav items for your little ones, the mama in your life, or any of you who are prepping for baby’s arrival!
And this gift guide is really the best of the best… I wanted to narrow it down and only show you my ultimate gift ideas for the new or expecting moms out there (and their little ones!), to make holiday shopping a little bit easier on all of the mama bears. Take a look and let me know what you think!
#1: TOCA TV APP
Keeping my kids entertained is no small feat, and this holiday season I have the perfect present for each and every one of them… Toca TV! It’s the new video streaming service launched by Toca Boca, which offers my kiddos thousands of curated videos that little ones are sure to love. The best part? They’re streamed on your iPhone or iPad without any ads, in a fun and safe environment that I totally trust. Like all Toca Boca apps, Toca TV was designed from the kid’s perspective (which is genius!!). They tested Toca TV with hundreds of little ones all over the world, to make sure that your kids will love it.
So if you haven’t heard of Toca TV yet, here’s what you need to know; it’s an interactive video platform that includes thousands or original and curated videos from around the internet. Every single piece of content is handpicked and pre-screened to make sure that it’s right for kids. Plus, it’s the kids can do more than just watch! They can film their own videos using Toca TV’s recording tool and super fun and silly animated filters.
And here’s a special offer for my ediTORIal readers: the first 100 ediTORIal readers to download Toca TV today from the App Store and use the code TORIGIFT will get their first month free when they sign up!

#2: LITTLE TRENDSETTER PAJAMAS
I discovered these pajamas from Little Trendsetter and knew they had to be part of this gift guide! For those of you who don’t know about Little Trendsetter, they’re a family owned and run online children’s clothing store, started by two sets of sisters! They have the cutest clothes for little ones (size newborn to 14), and also matching pajama sets for the whole family!!
These Plaid Bear Cheeks Flapjack Pajamas are beyond cute, and I can’t wait for the entire McDermott family to rock them! They’re adorable, unique and super comfy. They come in baby, toddler and adult sizes, and will keep your whole family warm and toasty throughout the winter. This red and black plaid onesie features a white bear paw print on the front with black button closures. The back trap door has a graphic of two black bears showing the audience their bear cheeks… CUTE!!
I also love these moose pajamas from Little Trendsetter. They’re 100% cotton, and are the perfect matching set to wear with your family on Christmas morning. Think about how cute your fam will look in these!!
Hello, chic mama! For any of you with babes on the way, this is the ultimate gift! Cybex is the go-to global stroller brand, and they’re known for their unique design, unsurpassed safety and amazing functionality. This fall they introduced a limited edition fashion collection designed by Jeremy Scott that was built on the PRIAM stroller, and I could not be more obsessed!!! So chic, so edgy, so perfect for baby #5!!
Cybex’s PRIAM stroller includes a Lux seat (newborn – 4 years old), the Carry Cot (infants) and the Cloud Q car seat. This gorgeous stroller that Jeremy Scott designed is the definition of chic simplicity. It has matte black fabric with gold metal wings on the sides, and gold rims on the wheels. This is a gift for the most stylish mama in your life, and I’m hoping that I get to unwrap one on Christmas morning!
How adorable are these?! The next item on my gift guide is one of my fave new finds for my kids to keep their little feet warm… It’s not a sock and not a slipper; it’s a “home shoe!” They’re called Tabi Tabi, and they’re made of soft, breathable, Japanese, jersey cotton. The split-toe concept lets the kids feel like they’re barefoot (which my little ones love, but doesn’t always work when it’s chilly outside), and lets their toes wiggle and stretch naturally… perfect for playing! Tabi Tabi is machine washable, retails for $34.95, and is available in 4 colors or patterns including Gray/Blue, Fuchsia Dots, Beige/Camo and Lavender Dots. They’re cute, cozy, and my kiddos are absolutely in love with them… and I have a feeling yours will be too!
For the chic mama out there who’s tired of using the same old bibs with their littles everyday, this is the perfect gift!! I discovered these bandana bibs by Matimati Baby, and am OBSESSED. They’re super soft, come in the cutest prints, and make mealtime way more adorable. Matimati Baby also makes really great bamboo wash cloths and fun pacifier clips, which would be great gifts for a new mom, too.
How cute is this print?!
And I haven’t even told you the best part about these bibs yet. Every time you purchase a set of bibs from Matimati baby, they will donate a portion of the sale to Chain Reaction, a non-profit organization that fights human trafficking in Asia by rescuing innocent children. Love this cause.

#6: TNEE’S TEEPEES
If you need a playful gift for a little one, look no further. Tnee’s makes the cutest kids décor, and I especially love their teepees. They’re made with designer, high quality fabrics and are fully lined. They make for the perfect place for your kiddos to play, and you can also add a play mat or have their name embroidered on it!! I also love that these are so chic that they’ll look great in your living room or playroom.
Bumkins makes so many cute things, but as far as holiday gifts I love the idea of gifting their snack bags to either a mama or a little one. They come in the cutest patterns (including Dr. Seuss, Disney and more, and make snacktime way more stylish. You can also see the other adorable products that Bumkins makes here.
Noodle & Boo makes my fave kids shampoo, so I had to include their New Mama Starter Gift Set! It comes with their soothing body wash, extra gentle shampoo and super soft lotion. Perfect for a brand new mama, or anyone with a baby on the way!!
I absolutely love these moses baskets by Plum + Sparrow, and think they would make the perfect gift for any new mama! They come in all different types of patterns and styles, and are handwoven. I especially love those pom pom details!
A good baby blanket is a must for any new mama, and I absolutely love the ones from Fox Hill Baby. They’re made with faux fur (chic!!) and come in an assortment of different prints and patterns. They look cozy and cute, and would be an adorable addition to any nursery.
And there you have it! My 10 fave gifts to give this holiday season.
