Little Giraffe has an amazing selection for pretty much everyone on your list. But if you want to really spoil that little one in your life, treat him or her to some classically modern layette, a chenille hoodie or a set of luxurious burpies.

  • One of the most popular gift selections from Little Giraffe is the Stretch Chenille Zipper Hoodie ($61). With cozy pockets, a front zipper and a hood with little ears, little ones (and parents) love this comfortable lightweight hoodie in super-soft stretch chenille.
  • You can never have too many burp cloths. Are we right? Clean up life’s little messes with the Little Giraffe set-of-three burpies ($48) in a giraffe print gift box. The same fabric you love in the center, surrounded by Little Giraffe’s absorbent cotton diamond-quilt.
  • The new Little Giraffe Link print makes a classically modern statement.
