Ask any new parent what they want for the holidays and they will probably say sleep. You can’t exactly gift-wrap some Zs, but you can package any of these super-sweet presents — they’re all for new parents and their tiny humans.

  1. Eat Poop Sleep Mini Throw Blanket, $74 at Calhoun & Co.: Babies don’t come with instruction manuals, but this blanket is basically the next best thing.
  2. Indigo Linen Bib Set, $29 at The Maryn: This bib is 100 percent linen and organic French terry on the reverse, so it’s pretty and absorbent. It also comes with a wooden spoon.
  3. Taco Dreams Mobile, $48 at Uncommon Goods: No crib is complete without little tacos, avocados, and hot sauce packets made out of felt.
  4. Jack + Jill Bodysuit, $28 at Monica and Andy: The only thing new parents love to see more than their babies? Coffee!
  5. Veggie Rattle Set, $37 for four at Cheengoo: It’s never too early to start introducing kids to vegetables. This hand-crocheted rattle set includes a carrot, tomato, corn, and an eggplant.
  6. Father/Son Matching Pizza Tees, $45 at Xenotees: Forget local sports teams! Get new dads (and babes) to pledge allegiance to something even better: pizza.
  7. Bamboo 5-Piece Set, $35 at Love Mae: How sweet is this bamboo dinner set? It comes with a divided plate, cup, bowl, and cutlery.
  8. Ana Banana Chewable Toy, $17 at Gretel: Unlike other bath toys, this banana doesn’t have a hole, so the inside won’t get moldy or germy. And it looks like a banana, which is funny to see babies chew on.
  9. Cotton Swaddle, $16 at Little Unicorn: Your friend can use this swaddle blanket to wrap up her baby the same way your favorite food truck packs up those delicious sandwiches.
  10. Crinkle Fries Plus, $15 at Kid Robot: Forget teddy bears and plush bunnies — your friend’s kid needs a stuffed french fry set that’s modeled to look like the iconic Shake Shake brand. There’s even a little ketchup for “dipping!”
