We’re obsessed with this new deco collection from Stanley – and it’s perfect for the holidays. The Quencher H2.0 FlowState™ Tumbler keeps 40 ounces cold for hours thanks to double-wall vacuum insulation. Parents can take this literally anywhere and everywhere and look good doing so!

Save expecting or new parents a trip to the grocery store with a meal or food delivery gift card. We love Blue Apron because of the wide variety of meal choices and ease of the recipes (work smarter, not harder).

8. Oura Ring

At Owlet, we’re big fans of sleep! As your little one adjusts to naps and bedtime, it’s also important for parents to get good quality rest. The Oura Ring makes it super simple to track not only sleep, but also other important factors of well-being including blood oxygen level, heart rate, activity levels, and more. It’s next level health tracking!

Everyone can benefit from a good sleep routine, especially new parents. Hatch Rest Go lets you take your routine on the go with their new portable sound machine. Clip it onto your stroller, place it next to your travel crib, or toss it into your diaper bag when you’re headed out. It’s that easy!
