One of my friends is expecting her first baby this winter, and so naturally, I’m shopping for that perfect gift. She’s a city girl and someone who can appreciate the finer things in life. What do you get when you want to distinguish your baby shower present from a sea of adorable outfits, cuddly teddy bears and other baby basics? While I may turn to her registry for something she has already requested, I’d love a gift topper that speaks for itself. Well, after stumbling upon a new line of NYC-themed rattles from Estella, I think my search may be over. These hand-knit first toys are like nothing we’ve seen before. Designed in a variety of urban motifs, including a taxi cab, salted pretzel (of course) and, our favorite, a MetroCard, these rattles are the perfect love letter to the city that never sleeps (something any new mom will be able to relate to…soon enough).
In a Nutshell: We’ll take Manhattan…and tie it up in a bow for the perfect baby gift. Bound to be the talk of the baby shower.
