Finding the perfect gift for your friends or family can be a stressful endeavor at the best of times, but we pride ourselves on being quite the experts at gift giving. (We've curated countless guides here on the site, from birthday gifts to last-minute gift ideas, not to mention our major holiday gift guides.)

Today, we're focusing our attention on the best gifts for new parents. As you can guess, anything that encourages comfort and relaxation is a great option, as sleep is not something new parents get a great deal of throughout the first year. A few other key things new parents will love? A cool skin-to-skin top that's a game changer, a multifunctional diaper bag, and the softest nursing nightdress.

Ahead, enjoy our roundup of the 25 best gifts for new parents, from the elegant and quirky to the relaxation-centric.
