We tend to favor practical baby gifts, so fancy rattles aren't typically on our radar. This one by Nambé is a standout for its beautiful design, reasonable price tag and safe materials.

Designed by Sean O'Hara for Nambé, the rattle's fluid form is exactly what one would expect of a teething toy from the iconic New Mexico-based company. The durable 18/8 stainless steel is freezer safe, and most importantly, it is safe to go in baby's mouth. At $30, it's a little affordable luxury that can deliver some comfort and fun. Available from Nambé.
