Looking for the perfect baby gift? Tired of seeing the ‘same old thing’ at every department store? Are you certain that everyone will be giving the exact gift as you? Here are some great ideas for choosing the perfect baby gift that will be remembered for years to come.
Many people give baby blankets as a baby shower or newborn gift, but by giving a quality, personalized baby blanket you will make yours stand out and become a family heirloom. You can also find ‘lovie blankets’ with adorable stuffies attached to the blanket for baby to cuddle.
If you can’t decide on just one gift and you’d like to give a variety of gifts, then a baby gift basket is a great idea. They come filled with useful and decorative baby gifts in just about any theme imaginable. You can even personalize some baby gift baskets to match the baby’s gender or the nursery theme the mom-to-be has picked out. There’s tons of ideas for how to arrange or fill your baby gift basket. Some baby shower guests even create wonderful personal or gourmet gift baskets just for the mom or both parents to be. What a great way to show you’re thinking of them and to help settle any unsteady nerves.
Other good choices for baby gifts are essential items like diapers, baby wipes, baby lotion or soap, a baby tub, crib sheets etc. A new mom can never have enough of these items, and they are great when given as a big gift basket, for example by using the baby tub or baby carrier as the ‘basket’ and filling it with essentials. Organic or all natural baby items are also a wonderful and unique way to go in baby gift ideas. Many moms choose to use cloth diapers and will treasure the thought not to mention the gift.
The most loved baby gifts are those that are given by a thoughtful friend or family member. It’s not hard to find that very special baby gift. Just be creative and take your time choosing your gift. Make sure to find baby gift stores or websites where not everyone is shopping, and you’re sure to find something different and unique to give. Stop and think about what the mom will need right after the baby arrives and also what they both may need in the future. Make this a special time for everyone to remember.
