“Do you know someone with a newborn baby and you want a gift idea for them? You’ve come to the right place. We will discuss various kinds of baby gifts – their different benefits – so that you can make the decision that works best for you.
Practical Ideas First
One idea for a newborn baby gift is to give the parents something that is practical. This is probably the first idea many newborn baby gift seekers think of. The benefit of giving the parents a practical gift should be obvious – the gift will be appreciated because it will be something they can use in taking care of their baby. Common practical gifts are diapers, baby clothes, a rattle, and blankets. You can buy these individually, or get them as a set – a gift basket – and give the parents several gifts in one. Usually, these items are always good to get, and it would be hard to be given too many of them – other than perhaps too many of the teeny, tiny size of something (clothes or diapers), because babies quickly outgrow the “newborn” size of anything. When you give a practical gift, it saves the parents money that they would otherwise need to spend on more baby clothes, or diapers, etc. They can be very appreciative.
Practical? Who Needs Practical?
On the other hand, why give a practical gift? Isn’t this a time to celebrate, to go all out, to get the parents and baby something truly spectacular? You could, instead, have the great idea that this newborn baby gift could be an opportunity to give them something that is less generic and more specially thought out for them. A great gift idea for a newborn baby is to give a personalized gift – be it a bib, blanket, bath towel, or “lovey,” having their name on something makes it all the more unique and special.
For fabric items, like those listed previously, the name, date and time of birth, and length and weight can be sewn or embroidered onto the item. Sometimes they are embroidered around the edge of a blanket, or can be put on the fabric near a corner. If the item isn’t fabric, but instead is metal, like a baby mug or a silver rattle, the information can be engraved. Glass items can be etched. A picture frame or similar item can have the pertinent information painted around the edge. Any of these will make a unique newborn baby gift, the idea being to do something special for the new baby.
Another unique idea for a newborn baby gift, girl or boy, is to get a custom made item, like a blanket with the baby’s name and hand and foot prints, with the meaning of the baby’s name and the origin of the name. Sometimes the company can even make a portrait of the baby or the family, making it all the more personalized. Sometimes the giver will opt to include a personal message to the infant or parents, or a Bible verse or special poem. It is truly up to the person’s preference – almost anything can be done. This makes a special gift that will be treasured forever.”
