13 Holiday Gifts for Parents with Babies

Need holiday gift ideas for parents with infants or cute little babies? No matter how the new parents in your life are celebrating the holidays, Nanit is here to help you find the perfect gifts that are sure to make their holiday easier, brighter—and hopefully, merrier thanks to more rest.  

For the sleep-deprived family (aka everyone)

When shopping for presents for parents of newborns, there’s nothing better than a thoughtful gift that fosters a great night’s sleep. Set your loved one up for success with the following smart nursery essentials:

1. Nanit Pro Camera 

The award-winning Pro Camera goes above and beyond traditional baby monitors by providing sleep tracking and analytics, Breathing Motion Monitoring, Cry Detection, and more. Combine this baby monitor camera with our Wall Mount, Floor Stand, or Flex Stand to keep an eye on your baby from any angle and rest easy knowing they’re sleeping soundly. 

2. Nanit Sound + Light 

White noise machines help lull babies to sleep because the whooshing sounds mimic what they hear in the womb. A combination sound machine and soothing night light may be the perfect gift that keeps on giving—restful nights of sleep, that is. 

The Nanit Sound + Light Machine is a 2-in-1 option that offers both calming sounds and customizable lights to help create effective wind-down and wake-up routines: 

  • Choose from 11 sounds, including white noise and nature 
  • Update + save color/sound combinations as Favorites, based on the mood or routines you need (wind-down, book time, wake-up)
  • Connect your device to the Nanit App to easily adjust settings from anywhere

    3. Vitruvi Stone Ceramic Diffuser with Sleep Oil 

    Sound isn’t the only thing that can promote better sleep—smell can also play a role. Research shows that the smell of essential oils like lavender and rose can improve sleep quality through their calming effects. 

    Luckily, the Vitruvi Stone Ceramic Diffuser comes with all-natural oils that are free of harsh chemicals and other ingredients. Plus, the diffuser has an automatic shutoff feature that ensures safety for both babies and parents.
