How many times have you given a baby gift and later realized the person had something just like it or even worse didn’t like it all and subsequently returned it?
If this has happened to you then perhaps it’s time to think out of the box…and by that we mean big box, as in big box stores, and choose from luxury baby gifts made in small batches by boutique brands who care less about the bottom line and more about the craftsmanship, quality and fit of what they make. These types of gifts go above and beyond your everyday newborn gifts and will long be cherished and never returned! Let’s take a look at just some of the choices out there…
Megabear by Commonfolke If you look in any baby’s room you’ll likely see dozens of teddy bears. They’re usually all the same look and feel, with not much setting them apart.

The Megabear, like all others from Commonfolke toys, are handmade from original designs. The creator, a stay-at-mom turned entrepreneur, started making bears for her babies and it soon blossomed into this unique company.
