Books for Urban Babies {gift ideas}

4 Mar

Buying gifts for kids can be a tricky business. For first time parents, they often don’t have a lot of the classic books or traditional toys at the beginning so those are a safe bet. By the time a second baby or a 1st birthday rolls around, chances are they already have a lot of the tried-and-true books and toys. We’ll feature a lot of new book and gift ideas here on Hip Mommies, but the theme of today’s gift selection is books/ toys for urban babies. Here are a few recommends, which will be loved by urban and suburban kids alike.
