What to Gift A Newborn Baby

A baby brings a lot of joy. Regardless of whether you know the baby’s parents personally or it is just your colleagues first child there is something comforting of knowing that somewhere there is a baby who is just starting life. Gifting something for them means usually gifting it to the parents.

There is a good chance this baby might never know what you gave them but it is the thought and happiness that the parents receive that is important. Your gift can be of two categories. One is that it is practical and useful and the other is of sentimental value. If you are looking for gift ideas for a baby here are some things we think can help.

Toys

This is a common yet creative idea for a gift. There are many things that could be considered as suitable toys. The first is obviously a soft toy of an animal or cartoon character. Babies tend to get attached to a soft toy they are introduced to and grow up with this toy being their favourite toy. Introducing a baby to their first soft toy is quite an achievement and definitely is high on the sentiment.

Practical items

The new parents can use all the help they can get even when it comes to having equipment that will make their lives. Carry bags, car seat, cots and even prams can be gifted to the parents to help them with their new arrival. A carry bag or diaper bag is one with many pockets that ensures everything that a baby need is inside. This is ideal for when the parents are on the move. It is convenient and extremely practical for the parents.

Baby items

Clothes will always come in handy, as a newborn will require quite a lot of them. Other helpful things can include nappies, knitted baby blankets, baby shoes and swaddles. You can get loads of different styles, sizes and cute baby clothes from online stores. Gifting the baby something they will be able to use is advisable so always pick clothes that are maybe a size bigger since they can be outgrown fast.

Creating memories

With how the world works now gone are the days of having hard copies of photographs. Your baby is likely to have a folder on a drive of their baby pictures or even have an Instagram account. However, there is something sentimental about physically collecting memories.

You can gift the parents a Polaroid camera as it is coming back in style. Photo albums and scrapbooks are cute ways to start collecting memories. Anything that helps a baby look back on their early days, once they’ve grown up is unique and thoughtful.

New mom essentials

Being a new mom is tiring and sometimes she needs some cheering up as well. Get your gift the new parents can enjoy. Baby books or even something completely unrelated to the baby that will help them relax is a great idea too.
