Unique Baby Gifts and Baby Shower Favors
Welcoming a new baby into the world is one of life’s greatest rewards. As the gift giver, you want to present the new parents with a gift that acknowledges their new arrival. Many people choose to bring flowers for this occasion, mainly because they are unsure of what to purchase for a new baby gift. While flowers are a thoughtful gift, there are more useful and creative gift options that new parents are sure to enjoy.
When purchasing a baby gift, use the opportunity to buy something that the new parents really need or want. This is especially handy when parents have to purchase unexpected baby gear that may not be in the budget.
If you are not sure what baby items the new parents need, choose to buy a baby gift keepsake that will always remind them of the day their child was born. Some popular keepsakes include quilts, jewelry boxes or identity bracelets. For an added touch, choose to have the babygift personalized with engraving the baby’s name and birth date.
Baby gift baskets also make great gifts for new parents and are some of the most popular options for gift givers. The appeal to baby gift baskets is that they come beautifully wrapped with some of the most useful baby accessories included. When purchasing a baby gift basket, you can choose from a particular theme, such as that for a baby boy or girl. All baby gift baskets come wrapped with a pretty bow and include a gift card.
Another great gift to welcome a new baby is a picture frame or photo album. Picture frames are versatile and can be placed on a baby’s dresser or on the wall. New parents can proudly show off their bundle of joy using picture frames, and for an added touch they can be engraved with the baby’s name and birth date.
Photo albums are also a favorite for new parents, as the photos taken of their new baby are endless. If possible, add a few pictures to get the album started. Include pictures of the expectant parents at the baby shower, important people in the baby’s life, or perhaps photos of the new baby taken at the hospital.
Baby clothes are a practical gift for a new baby and certainly well-needed. Most new parents find that their new babies wear several outfits each day. When purchasing baby clothes, choose outfits that are soft and comfortable. Look for outfits that are easy to dress a new baby in and feature easy snaps and buttons. And don’t forget about other useful clothing items such as pajamas, wearable blankets and onesies.
Many gift givers find that giving bath time accessories for a new baby is quite appreciated, as bath time is part of the daily routine. Choose from soft and comfortable towels and washcloths to bathe the baby with each day. Or choose bath time toys, such as squirt toys or dump cups, for the new baby to play with when he gets older. If you are unsure what bath time accessories the new parents have, choose to get a storage organizer for all the toys and bath products.
Finally, soft plush or first toys are always favorite baby gift giving options. Choose toys that are soft and easy to grasp, featuring bright colors and shapes. As babies get older, they enjoy toys that have lights and music.
