Three Gift Ideas for a New Baby

The birth of a new baby is a time when people want to come together and celebrate the new addition and of course get to meet them too! When people hear the news of a new baby that is due to arrive soon, of course there will be a lot of excitement around it.

This is why the idea of holding a baby shower is so popular – this is a good way for everyone to get together, celebrate the new baby and also to give gifts to the parents and the baby for when they arrive. A baby shower is usually held before the baby is born, as this is of course much easier to do than when looking after a newborn and surviving on very little sleep!

If you are going to a baby shower and have no idea what to give as a gift, here are some ideas that might help you in the right direction…

A Practical Gift – Having a new baby is a lot of hard work for the parents, and you might want to think of a gift that will make life easier for them as they adjust to their new addition. It could be something that can make certain jobs easier, it might be some precooked frozen meals that they can simply heat up, or it could even be the offer of your time babysitting so that they can have some time to themselves.

Something that is Homemade – Making something for someone is always special, and there are lots of things that you can make – food for the baby shower, such as some special cupcakes, or something for when the baby is born such as a blanket – you can get crochet blanket kits like this that you can use to make this yourself.

Something Special – A baby is a special life event, and you might want to get something that is really meaningful and can be kept forever to mark this. Some great ideas for this include a special photo frame, or even a new born photoshoot, or perhaps a memory box that all of those special things can be kept in and treasured, from the first tooth to the first lock of hair.
