Hats, Mittens, Blankets, and More: What You Need For a Baby in the Winter
For some of you, a winter baby may be the ultimate gift on your list this holiday season. Though you've likely been preparing for months, now is the time to have fun and indulge in some shopping to make sure you're all ready for your little snow angel. It doesn't get much cuter than a rosy-cheeked infant swaddled tons of cushy layers and winter accessories — we dare you not to gush when you see your baby in miniature mittens and impossibly tiny booties.
Not only is the effect absolutely "aww"-inducing, but it's also very important for the baby's health that you keep them plenty warm at all times. We put together a basic guide to what you might need for a baby in the colder months. Even if you're not personally expecting or a new parent, any item on this list would be an amazing gift for a friend or family member's newborn.
