These handmade baby products make perfect presents for baby showers or first birthdays
Butterfly Teething Rattle Toy, $14
With toys being recalled left and right, it's always best to go with a handmade, natural toy (especially since it's probably going straight in baby's mouth.) The gorgeous lines of this rattle/teether mean both baby and her parents will love it.
Personalized Photo Block, $17
Sometimes a picture's too precious for a regular frame, and this photo block is the perfect way to show off a classic shot. The knotty pine piece has a hole in the back so it can be mounted on a wall or displayed on a shelf.
Frog Knitted Puppet, $17
Baby toys keep getting more and more high concept, but puppets will always be there for low-tech entertainment. We see lots of possibilities for this cute frog puppet -- from Kermit to frog prince.
Mr. or Mrs. Owl Hat, $19
He won't care how adorable he looks in this sweet, hand-crocheted owl cap (he'll just be comfy and warm), but Mom will. (Everyone wins.)

Cowboy Changing Pad, $18
This changing pad is perfect for on-the-go -- use it for diaper changes, tummy time, or when baby needs to be covered up (just make sure it's clean!). We love the retro cowboy pattern.
Busy Baby Binkie Blankie, $17.99
This blankie, with loops for binkies and toys, and a metal clip to attach it to stroller or car seat straps, is sure to become his don't-leave-the-house-without-it fave.

Monogramming adds a personal touch to this bib/bloomers set. Moms should seize the opportunity to make her wear freakin' adorable bloomers -- it won't last forever.
Animal Ice Pack, $14.95
Boo-boos suck, but these fun icepacks can make them suck less. Give 'em a funny animal voice and kids might even forget bout the bump, bruise, or burn that's making them cry. The animals, also in mermaids, monkeys and squids, can be separated from the ice pack to freeze, or thrown in the freezer all together.

Snap the handsome devil into this cheeky onesie, and he'll be ready for weddings, church, or just charming the ladies at the sandbox.
