1. Un-funny onesies

"I can't stand getting clothes that say "Mommy's/Daddy's Li'l ______ [throw in some word...all-star, hero, pumpkin...here]" -- KMS416

So here's the deal: By the time you're ready to gift someone a cute onesie or two around holiday time, chances are they've already stockpiled about a gazillion of them, thanks to all the other people in their lives who so enjoy giving onesies that say something like "Mommy's little stinker" on it. And we get it, they're pretty hard to resist. But for Mom, she's probably still trying to make her way through all the other onesies she's received before baby actually outgrows them. Our advice? If you've truly got your heart set on gifting a humorous onesie, better go for the gusto with one that gives the major LOLs. Try browsing BabyWit.com or AJewishBeginning.com.
