Are you a soon to be mom looking for cool things for the nursery? Maybe you are in need for a cool baby gift for a baby shower, but you don’t want to shop at a big box store?

If this sounds like you, then I have you covered. Having a toddler means I have spent my fair share shopping for all kinds of things for him.

Most of the time I look to small businesses to purchase items because I like supporting local mom and pop stores.

Like all of our lists, I have personally visited each store on this list and this is my own opinion after doing the research.

Beautiful Beginnings Baby Boutique & More

The name of the store might be a bit of a tongue twister, but this baby boutique offers some really great products for those with babies and toddlers.

Beautiful Beginnings Baby Boutique & More carries mid to higher end clothing for infants and up to 4T. They also have baby furniture, accessories and an amazing selection of children’s books.

If you happen to be in Boca Raton, Florida be sure to check out their other location.

Modern Natural Baby

This Ferndale baby store has held a special place in my heart since I had my son. This is not the first time I have included this store in one of my lists. They made our Small Business Saturday list last year.

Modern Natural Baby is my go-to recommendation when a friend or acquaintance is looking to cloth diaper their new baby.

They carry everything you need from postpartum care, breastfeeding, diapering, baby carriers, car seats and strollers, toys, and clothing.

Everyone who works in this store is knowledgeable and friendly. If you have a question about a car seat they have two car seat technicians. Need a new baby carrier? They can help you find the right one.

DCreated Boutique

If you are in need of a unique baby gift then you need to check out this baby boutique located in the heart of the Avenue of Fashion.

Everything in DCreated Boutique is had made in the store, so there might only be a handful of each outfit.

The clothes are cute and hip while also being reasonable. There is something for every budget.

DCreated Boutique make number 10 on our list of 28 Things To Do in Marvin Gaye’s Old Neighborhood.

Little High Flyers

Little High Flyers baby boutique

This cute boutique popped onto my radar last December when I was driving down Cass Avenue in Midtown. I turned around and ended up checking it out and writing a post about the store.

Little High Flyers carries these really cute pilot hats, clothing, shoes, and wall decor for children.

If you live on the Eastside and have had to buy a baby gift, then you know all about Connie’s in Saint Clair Shores.

This store has been around since 1954, so they obviously have been doing something right.

Connie’s carries clothing for babies up to children. If I need an outfit for a special event I go to Connie’s first.
