Your nearest and dearest’s baby bump is swelling, which means two things for you: You’re about to become an unofficial aunt, and you need to choose the perfect present for your BFF’s baby shower. With sweater weather looming and the leaves changing, getting into the seasonal spirit is a welcome way to celebrate baby’s big birth day. Instead of a generic onesie or the same ol’ paci set everyone else is giving, check out these present picks with an autumn theme.
1. By George Baby Boutique Pumpkins & Squash Organic Cotton Swaddle ($48): Your soon-to-be mama friend needs plenty of swaddling blankets, and this one is pumpkin perfection.
