What is the best gift for a newborn baby boy they will be able to use for many years to come?

Many mums and dads find themselves inundated with gifts for newborn babies that are very cute but can only be worn or used for a very short time. If you are looking for a gift for a newborn baby boy, but you don’t want to give a tiny outfit that they will grow out of quickly, or a soft plush toy that will lose its appeal after a few months, you may be left wondering what would make an attractive and lasting gift. Here at Gifts Australia, we know we have several great baby gifts that will fit the bill exactly. 

Something for a rainy day A great gift idea for family members such as grandparents or aunts and uncles is a money box. As well as making nice baby gifts in themselves, which can be attractively displayed in the nursery and later in the bedroom, they will also lend themselves to having some money added to them during family visits or on special occasions during the year such as birthdays or Christmas. Take a look at the Bear Pirate Money Box with its cheeky grin, promising to keep your coins safe – can he be trusted? He is very reasonably priced and will make a great addition to any little boy’s room for years to come.

A classic silver money box, such as the Wedgwood Peter Rabbit Silver Money Box, is a bit more of an investment. However, we know that you will enjoy the beautiful craftsmanship that has gone into creating the classic little character and this money box has the possibility to become a real family heirloom, handed down to the next generation when the time comes!

Food, glorious food! Everyone knows that it is important for babies and young children to eat well, and making meal times fun is easily done with some of the gorgeous crockery sets available at Gifts Australia. Presented in a lovely case, the blue 3-piece Peter Rabbit Set is made by Wedgwood and consists of a bowl, plate and mug of high-quality porcelain with enchanting illustrations, just the thing for a little baby boy, and one of the most popular baby gifts from our collection.

Alternatively, the Royal Doulton Bunnikins range at Gifts Australia consists of several matching items such as plates, bowls, mugs and even a matching set of small knife, fork and spoon, which would ideally lend itself to be added to as baby grows or at special times such as a Christening, or at Christmas time. They are all charmingly decorated by hand, and because they are dishwasher and microwave safe, they should be able to be enjoyed by children for many years to come.

Growing up - and up, and up….

Although this may not be the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of baby gifts, a growth chart is a great idea and one that will be enjoyed for many years to come. With plenty of room to record all the milestones in a little boy’s life along the way, the Charley Harper Birds Growth Chart is a fun, colourful baby gift that will look attractive in any nursery or small boy’s room, and with measurements going up to 167 cm in height this will be able to be used for many years to come! (Sizes are also displayed in inches). The chart adheres to any smooth surface in the home, and comes with a number of extra stickers to decorate or mark important milestones and occasions.

Never too young

It is well known that being read to at an early age is great for children’s development and will encourage them to start exploring the world of books for themselves too when they start to read, so it is never too early to build up a great library for kids. Encourage the story time ritual by giving a wonderful story telling book such as TLC Children’s Storybook , or revisit classic tales of adventure by giving Enid Blyton’s Magical Treasury Story Collection Book which includes some of this great writer’s best tales.
A great and slightly unusual baby gift that can be kept on the shelf for a few years, until they are old enough to play with it, is the Care For Our World Kit which includes a book, habitat box and several animal cut outs. It enables children to learn about caring for the world while playing, and is sure to be treasured for many years!
