“When a new baby is born, it is very nice to give the parents something for their baby. Sometimes it is a useful gift, sometimes it is a personalized one, sometimes it is a gift that is more for the parents than the baby. Whatever your choice, your gift for their newborn baby boy will be appreciated.
The Easy Way To Choose
One of the easiest ways to select a gift is to get just what they want. Perhaps they’ve had their eye on a certain type of diaper bag, with the cutest fabric, or maybe the mother has been really wanting a sling to use to carry her baby for many months and knows which type she wants. If you ask the parents if there is a particular gift they’d like, they can tell you of such wants. They can also tell you if there is something they still need for their little one, something that they haven’t already received at a baby shower or from relatives. Often these gifts are the most appreciated.
Making It Personalized
A new trend that is growing in popularity is to give a gift that is personalized for a newborn baby boy. These gifts usually it includes the baby’s name, but it can also say their birthdate, weight and length. Gifts that are often personalized are bibs, blankets, picture frames, and bath towels. It is a pleasant surprise for a parent to see their baby’s name written on the gift, and they’ll appreciate the extra effort you want to for them and their newborn baby boy. Unique gifts like these are treasured for a lifetime.
Giving An Heirloom
Heirloom gifts are kept and passed down from generation to generation. These are traditionally baby rattles or mugs. They are often personalized with the baby’s name and date of birth.
From A Distance
If you don’t live nearby, you can still give the baby’s parents a great gift. Many specialty stores and Internet stores carry baby gift baskets. Some are appropriate for all babies, other newborn gift baskets are for boys or girls. You can decide which basket you’d like. Most places will baskets already designed in various themes, like bathtime, bedtime, clothing, etc. If you get clothing, please consider that babies are only in newborn sizes for a very short time – you might want to get items in at least 3 month size, or 6 month to be sure they’ll fit!
Putting In More Time Than Money
You can always make a meaningful gift for the newborn baby boy. Knitted or crocheted blankets and clothes is always popular, as are sewn clothing and quilts. Some people enjoy creating a scrapbook for the parents with photos that the parents have taken over the months of pregnancy and/or the early newborn time.”
