Gift Ideas for New Parents
Do you know someone welcoming a new addition to the family? Stumped on what to give for a gift? If this sounds like you, here are a few gift suggestions for friends or family who are new parents. If the new parents do have a gift registry, consider checking first to make sure that no one buys the same gift.
A Sturdy Diaper Bag
Babies need lots of things to be comfortable. Find a bag that has room for crumb drains, insulated pockets for bottles, and plenty of room for clean diapers.
A Customized Picture Frame
If this is the recipient’s first child, a customized frame for their first picture as a family is a wonderful idea.
A Photo Album
If one photo isn’t enough, an album can be a great investment that will be used for at least the first year of the child’s life.
A Subscription Service
Lillypost is a popular subscription service for new parents featuring new children’s books for $26 a month. Everyday Happy is a subscription box that sends hypoallergenic diaper care and other kits for $49.99 a month.
If you’re a parent, you might remember how tough it was to take your child’s temperature. There are now pacifiers that double as thermometers that can take their temperature while they suck on the pacifier.
A Door Muffler
Chances are, many new parents have their sleep interrupted with a noisy nursery door opening and closing during the night. Consider making a cloth muffler to keep things quiet. This will make it easier for one parent to check on the baby without disrupting their spouse.
A Streaming Subscription
If they don’t already have a Netflix or Amazon Prime subscription, now is a great time to gift the new parents a gift card for either of these services. Both offer a wide variety of kids and adult programming.
