Why is it that baby boy gifts are still, in 2018, so hard to find? After having my son 8 weeks ago, I noticed that it's nearly impossible to find anything cute or unique for a boy at a major retailer. So, I went on a hunt for the best baby boy gifts that I could find in shops online and I came up with all these. I'm partnering or affiliated with the brands mentioned below but I'm fully confident in recommending them for the little guy you're shopping for. Enjoy!
Many of you know that I waited until birth to find out the gender of my first child. While I had a feeling my bundle of joy was a boy, I didn't know for sure and really didn't care either way. Our friends and family, however, weren't too pleased with our decision to wait. Let's face it, everyone wants to shop for boy or girl stuff. Regardless of everyone's opinions, we directed friends & family to stick with gender neutral gifts. Basically, his entire room and wardrobe were white & gray for the first couple weeks. After my little gentleman was born, the hunt began for the best baby boy gifts that anyone could find. But, many of us hit a wall. After snagging a few cute Rosie Pope outfits, we all realized that there's a desperate need for cute boy gifts! Why do girls get all the fun colors and unique gifts? Boys just wanna have fun, too! So, I seemed out some incredible brands with the idea of helping others pick up something worthwhile for the new baby boy in their life.

3. DockATot Deluxe+ Mrs. Mighetto (Night Night)
The DockATot Delixe+ was the best thing to ever happen to my newborn's nap time routine! It provides the right amount of comfort and safety that I need, as a first time mom, to make it through these first months of transitioning into motherhood. My little guy loves to be next to mommy at all time and this allows us to do just that. The Mrs. Mighetto Night Night design was the perfect choice for my little man and I because mama loves taking good photos of her little man! Nestled high up in the clouds is a hidden world you probably never even knew existed. Powder pink kites dance through the warm air, enchanted tunnels with changing architecture, rainbows appearing suddenly to create lavish light shows. You'll find friends who can turn clouds into candy floss and fish who can sing as sweetly as the nightingale's song.
Limited edition collaboration with Mrs. Mighetto. Machine washable.

4. The Ollie Swaddle
The Ollie Swaddle in the color Meadow gives baby boys the perfect amount of color, comfort, and style in his first few months of life. What we love about our Ollie Swaddle is that it stays in place, while other swaddles eventually loosen up, waking baby from his deep sleep. This swaddle will keep your baby boy sleeping on his back (the safest position) all night long and will give mommy a little more sleep each evening. While the swaddles comes in various colors, I prefer the Meadow green color because adds color to baby boy's wardrobe that you don't always find.

6. Puffy Dream Blue Rug
A rug can make or break the theme of a nursery. While shopping for my son, I came across a ton of baby girl rugs full of bright colors and flowers, but nothing for boys – until I came across Lorena Canals Rugs. In fact, I had a difficult time finding the perfect rug for my baby boy because of all the incredible options. As soon as I found the Puffy Dream Blue rug, I knew it was meant to be! I ended up building my baby boy's “Sweet Dreams Nursery” around it. This rug comes with its own built-in cushion, which makes it a great place for catnaps or story time (come rain or shine)! It's bound to be a favorite addition to your child's room.
