“If your family member or friend is having a new baby, you are probably trying to figure out what to get for a new arrival baby gift. The best new baby gift is something that you put thought into and choose out of love, so it is important that you really take time to think about this new arrival baby gift. Here are some ideas to help you choose that perfect new arrival baby gift!
Gift baskets are great ideas for new arrival baby gifts. With a gift basket you do not need to choose just one gift, but instead you can put several into the basket. Gift baskets work best if you have a theme. You can do a new arrival baby gift basket with the theme of feeding, for example. You could put in some bottles (if the new mom is breastfeeding, make sure that the bottles are breastfeeding friendly), a breast pump if the new mom is breastfeeding, burp clothes, bibs, and some spoons and feeding utensils for when the baby gets older.
You could also, for example, do a sleep time new arrival baby gift basket. You could put in some blankets, some swaddling blankets (which are priceless for a new mom!), a mobile for the crib, a co-sleeping positioner for if the baby winds up in bed with the parents, and some binkies (if the new mom is breastfeeding, make sure that the binkies or pacifiers are breastfeeding friendly! The package should say whether or not they are).
Another example for a new arrival baby gift basket is a bath time gift basket. You can put in wash clothes, hooded towels, funny puppet wash clothes to wash the baby with, soap, lotion, shampoo, bath toys, a faucet protector, and even a bathrobe. A themed new arrival baby gift basket will be fun for you to put together and useful for the new parents!
Larger Clothes And Diapers
Some of the best new arrival baby gifts that a new parent will receive are larger clothes and larger diapers. Most of the time the new parents are inundated with size newborn and small diapers and size zero to three months clothing. However, these clothes and diapers will only last the baby for so long. If you want to be helpful, purchase clothes in size six months or higher and diapers in size medium or large. That way the new parents will have a stash of bigger things to use when the baby gets older and they will not have to go out and purchase all of it.”
