Continuing our search from last week for baby gifts that are not just useful to new parents but are also beautiful and affordable, here are five more perfect baby gifts:
Hooded Bath Towels
A must-have for a newborn to help keep them warm after a bath, the Trend Lab hooded bath towels come in many fun patterns for baby girls and baby boys. At just $18, this is a very affordable gift, and of course you can get two of them, or pair a hooded towel with another gift.
Washcloth and Burp Cloths Sets
Babies need tons of washcloths and burp cloths! We love the Trend Lab Dr. Seuss ABC bouquet wash cloth set, a five-pack wash cloth set that features fun, modern prints on one side and terry on the other side. Each wash cloth measures 8" x 8". Cost is less than $12 per set.
A Pretty Storage Caddy
With a baby in the house, the new mom will have so many supplies, including diapers, lotions and creams, wipes, a suction bulb and more. Help her neatly store and carry these items from room to room with this super useful, gorgeous storage caddy. Price: $25.
A Play Mat
Play mats are great because they help baby learn to stretch, grab and play. We love the Nursery to Go Ladybug Lucy Play Mat Set – it is made of 100 % cotton and is machine washable. The Toys are attached with velcro and contain tiny rattles. The toys are also removable and washable. And you can add your own toys! At just under $50, this gift is still quite affordable.
Receiving blankets are very useful to new parents. Get them a few of these beautiful pique with Satin trim receiving blankets from Trend Lab ($10 each). Blankets measure 36" x 36" and are available with blue or pink satin trim.

The way we see it, the perfect baby gift has to be affordable, practical and beautiful. When selecting baby gifts, we insist on all three! So while a box of diapers would answer the first two requirements (affordable and practical), it does not answer the third, so cannot be considered a perfect baby gift.
Whether you need a gift for a baby shower or for the upcoming holiday season, here is our list of ten affordable, practical and beautiful baby gifts:
Not just any baby clothing of course, but a cute, stylish, and practical outfit such as this adorable baby girl outfit from Sweet Jojo Designs. At just under $30, this is a very affordable gift, too.
A Baby Gift Set
A gift set is a stylish and easy option that saves you a lot of time. We love the Max Dot 6 Piece Baby Gift Set, which includes a storage bin, a receiving blanket, and 4 Burp Cloths. At just under $38, this gift is, again, beautiful, practical and affordable!
A Diaper Cake
What a clever way to take something ugly-yet-useful and turn it into a pretty gift! The Trend Lab Maya Diaper Cake is made with a total of 40 Size 1 diapers and also includes a bodysuit (0-3 months size), a bib, three washcloths, and a burp cloth. Cost: $46
A Stylish Diaper Bag
This is a wonderful gift, because so many new moms struggle with the need to carry an ugly diaper bag everywhere. A stylish diaper bag is the perfect solution, and can be used as a shopping bag or a beach tote too! We love the Black White and Pink Stripe Large Tote Bag by Sweet Jojo Designs. Price: $29.
A Beautiful Nursing Cover
If you know the expectant mom is planning to nurse, give her a nursing cover! This will help her feel more comfortable when breastfeeding in public, and will also help keep baby from being distracted. At less than $15 per each, you can get her a couple of these.
