If you’ve got a friend or family member that is expecting a new baby, then it is such an exciting time. There might be a baby shower coming up, or perhaps you’ll just wait until the baby is born. But if you want to get them a gift for the new baby, what are the best things to get? Here are a few ideas for you, so you can treat and spoil the new baby that has arrived.
If you really want to treat the new parents or new baby, then you could go all out and get them quite a fancy gift. It could be something from the Fendi kids and baby collection, or a Ralph Lauren onesie, for example. It could be a cute pair of shoes, or perhaps some luxury baby lotions and products. It could be a good idea to splash out like this is you have been asked to be a Godparent, for example. But the choice is up to you!
If you prefer to get a gift that is a little more practical than fancy, then there are several options left there too. First of all, you can’t go too far wrong with diapers and wipes. It isn’t the most exciting gift of all, but the new baby and parents will certainly make use of them. Second, you could give the gift of a homemade meal, or bring them a few bags of groceries. As anyone that has had a baby knows, the last thing that you can face doing is going to the grocery store and doing shopping.
Things like a soft toy can always be a good idea to get for little ones. Though they won’t be using it very much now, they will make use of it when they are a little older. It is nice when they still have a toy like that, and it lasts for a while. Then when their parents say that their aunt gave it to them, or the grandma gave it to them. So a cute, quite traditional gift is a good idea.
If you like to give them a gift that is a little different, then there are several options there too. First of all, how about getting an imprinting set? Then they can use the clay or mold to make a print of the baby’s hands or feet. You could also get them a coupon for getting a fun water baby picture done. Think Nirvana album cover kind of baby underwater picture. For the right family, that could be a really fun gift. Other quirky gifts could be an illustrated family portrait or some wall art for the baby’s room.
If you like to go down the more traditional route, then how about something like a wooden rocking horse? You could also choose something like a silver box for little trinkets. A money box is a traditional gift, as well as a silver christening style bracelet.
