Every mom appreciates the basics. But these are fun finds the doting grandma, aunt or girlfriend can offer up!
Studio 5 "Baby Buzz" Contributor Lyndsi Frandsen looks at the luxury side of the baby industry.
As a mom, it seems you are always buying the "basics" for your baby! Diapers, wipes, formula, you name it. It's not very often that you can "step out of the box" and really splurge on fun items for your little one. We have found some over the top, totally luxurious items for your baby that any mom would love. If you are a grandma shopping for your grandkids, an aunt wanting to dote on your nieces and nephews, or even just a girlfriend wanting to spoil your friend's baby, these are the items for you!
1. Bling Binky
Everything is better with a little bling, right? This totally stylish, blinged out pacifier is the perfect accessory for any baby to make her stand out in a crowd!

2. Pacifier Sanitizer
Every mom has experienced it: that moment of sheer terror when your baby throws their binky on the dirty, restaurant floor. Your first thought would be to not let your child anywhere near the now germ infested binky and toss it out. But fear no more! This little gem is a portable lifesaver that kills 99% of bacteria found on the pacifier. Just pop the binky into the sterilizer for 5 minutes, and wham, bam! You have yourself a totally clean binky! (at least for 10 minutes until they throw it back onto the floor!) And for you "non-germaphobe" mom's - just humor the rest of us!

Gone are the days of having to wipe your baby's skin with a freezing cold wipe. This luxurious baby takes those oh-so-cold wet wipes and warms them right up! Not only will it eliminate baby tears but will also take away your mommy guilt that you feel each time you wipe. It even has a handy night light for those late night changes!

This is the blanket of all blankets! Much more cuddly than cotton, the heavy minky fabric provides both warmth and luxurious comfort.

Talk about spoiled and pampered! Your baby will love it (and I sneak mine out for mommy naptime every now and again, too! ).
