A close friend or a family had a baby? It’s a custom to get gifts for the new member of the family! And you definitely want to gift them something that can be used by the baby! The gift should be thoughtful and unique and at the same time should be useful for the parents and the baby!
While buying a gift for a newborn it’s necessary to see the parent’s lifestyle, their storage space and sometimes even seasons in mind! You definitely don’t want to get a newborn a sweater or woollen clothes during summers because chances are pretty high that they’ll outgrow them by then!
So keeping these things in mind and without further ado, scroll to get some ideas for gifting newborns something special!
1. High Chair
You can buy a piece of baby furniture for gifting, dressers or changing units, nursery rocking chairs, travel cots, etc. Baby furniture is available in different styles and finishes. There are tonnes of sizes available for chairs according to age!
Buy it here!
2. Baby Baskets
How cute is this baby bassinet? It has two handles so it’s easy to carry the baby easily. There’s also a frame, so the parents can set the basket in the frame and rock the kid gently to sleep.
You can choose baby’s clothing items like mittens, bibs, vests, caps, shoes. Keep in mind that there aren’t any tags because that might irritate the baby’s skin!
4. Soft toys
The market is full of exciting choices when it comes to rattlers and musical toys for newborn babies. Not only are they available in adorable designs, but are also soothing, which is a definite entertainer for babies.
5. Portable baby bed
As much as the new parents will love holding their new baby, they’ll definitely be exhausted by it. So a holder is another great idea for a baby shower! So this can be used instead of a baby carrier!
Baby blankets are perfect for a stroller or even a basket. The parents can carry the baby in it or drape over a rocker in the nursery to keep them cosy. One can never go wrong with this blanket.
7. Diaper Genie
A diaper genie is a box where all the used diapers can be thrown so that you don’t have to keep going to the kitchen or the restroom to dispose of them! At the end of the day or when the diaper genie is full, the parents can throw them off together!
8. Milestone Blocks
These are just so lovely. These woodblocks use nontoxic paint and once the baby arrives they could even play with them!
These gift baskets could consist of baby essentials, with stuff like nail clippers, baby hairbrush, little baby shoes, a small soft toy, rattlers, non-toxic teether and so much more! Or it could be a survival kit for the mother with all things she would need in the last trimester!
10. Baby bathtub and products
Bathing a newborn baby is every parent’s fear as we all know how fragile they are. So you can buy the portable kind, which makes bathing the baby easier and more practical. This makes bathing time for the mothers so much easier because we all know how fragile those small babies are. This mesh one keeps the little one supported in the water while also allowing for the runoff to easily drain through.
11. Diaper Bags
A diaper bag is an absolute essential which every parent needs! So why not gift them one? You can stuff some diapers and a few baby essentials like tissues, baby wipes, sanitizer, a set of new clothes in there too!
12. Play Mats
A play mat is extremely important for the parents and the baby. If the mother is busy doing some work, she can always lay the kid on the playmat with a few toys around which can keep the kid entertained and safe.
Shoes are one of the most classic baby symbols out there. And since babies outgrow their clothes so quickly, parents can never have enough shoe options for the little one.
14. Foldable Storage Boxes
This is quite the necessity for all parents as they need a place to put all the baby’s stuff. Today’s infant toy storage can become tomorrow’s Lego storage. Lightweight, durable, and perfect for towing around their favourite toys.
15. Baby Mobiles
A new parent may appreciate having a cot mobile or a play gym, which can engage their baby while allowing them to do some chores. You can opt for the musical kinds in bold colours. There are so many types of mobiles available out there! Ones that play music, ones that rotate themselves, mobiles according to themes and even customised mobiles! They can be hung on the cot to entertain the kid!
16. Teether And Rattle Set
New parents can find comforting their baby to be quite a task. Baby pacifiers may make just the right gift, in that case. Baby pacifiers and teethers come in different animal characters. Make sure that they are the non-toxic kinds.
Baby pillows are definitely going to be handy for the parents and the baby in the next few months! Plus, they definitely add colour to the room! You can go for a cartoon-themed one if you like!
18. Photo Album
They might be used that much anymore, thanks to technology, but photo albums surely need to be used more! These albums are perfect to store all the memories! Parents can paste handprints and footprints of their baby, personal details, like birthdate, time, weight, first words, pictures of their first walk and so much more!
