“So your best friend that you’ve known practically forever is going to have a baby. The little one is due any day now, but you haven’t yet gotten a gift for the baby. Oh no! You’ve been stalling, not sure where to get the gift, or how to choose a present. You need to find the best newborn baby gift, and you need it now! Whether you’re giving the gift for a baby christening or baby shower, you want something special, something that the mom (your best friend) will appreciate and enjoy. You want her to think of you whenever she looks at it, and to know that you chose it for her.
You can get newborn baby gifts – best chosen in person – at a department store. They generally have a lot of products in stock, and the sales persons will be able to help you choose and be glad to ring up your purchase. Also, in the odd event that your best friend needs to exchange the present – perhaps the size was too small for her ten-pound newborn, or maybe the ultrasound that was “positive” it was a girl missed a key element that means her Julie is a Johnny instead…and she wants to change that pink dress for a blue pair of overalls. Things like that happen. If you bought her gift in a department store, it can be easily exchanged. In fact, when you buy the gift, get a “gift receipt” to go with it. That way the store knows it truly did come from there, but they don’t see a price on the receipt.
You can buy the best newborn baby gifts in specialty baby stores! They often have gift sets already assembled, so that for a certain price you can give the mother several items. It could be a gift basket of toys, or of bath things (towel, wash cloth, bath oil, baby shampoo, rubber ducky…). It can be a boy basket, where all the items are in blue or green, or a girl basket with pink, purple, or yellow. Or it could be any one of a number of other specialty gift packages. Also, specialty stores will often carry special brands that can’t be found in most department stores, like clothing from Europe. If you want to give a classy European outfit, try a specialty baby store.
Another option – one of the best ways to buy newborn baby gifts – is to buy a gift through an online baby store. There are several reasons for this growth in popularity. One is that often one of the best newborn baby gifts can be bought for a decent price or less and shipped directly to the mother. So, if your best friend lives in another state, on online store can be a real boon! They also offer many gift packets. A gift basket can be a present the mother really appreciates, that shows her how much you enjoy your friendship, and be fun to receive, as well.”
