Do you give a gift when a baby is born?
It’s common to ask if you need to give a gift after baby’s birth if you’ve already given the new parents a baby shower gift. Many people will choose to give a larger, more celebratory gift for a baby shower, and then send a simple gift to welcome the newborn after the birth. Or they will give an inexpensive baby gift of practical items for the baby shower and then spoil mum and bub after the birth.
If you’re buying for a close friend or family member, you might choose to give a baby shower gift to pamper a pregnant mum, and then another gift box of goodies that’s related to the newborn baby. Keepsake gifts from a godparent or other special mementos are usually only given after baby is born. If you would live to give a personalised baby gift with embroidered initials or baby jewellery engraved with baby’s name, you will need to wait until after baby’s birth to send a gift.
What baby gift should I buy for a Christening?
When you need a gift for a christening, it is often a good idea to choose something that can be kept as a memento. A christening is a milestone occasion in the life of a baby, but also for the parents who choose to christen their baby. Therefore, a memento or keepsake baby gift is the perfect present.
For a christening or naming day celebration, personalised baby gifts or precious crystal figurines make lovely gifts. A baby photo frame, silver money box, anything from the Bunnykins range, or the baby keepsake dinner sets from Royal Doulton are perfect designer gifts for baby.
What are good baby gifts for a first-time mum?
Our amazing baby gift baskets are wonderful ideas for a gift for first-time parents. Our baby hampers come with all those beautiful gifts for baby including delightful baby booties or little outfits, useful toys, pretty ornaments or even goodies and bubbly for the mum and dad-to-be to enjoy to celebrate the new arrival.
If money is in short supply with all the expenses a new baby brings, they’ll appreciate something practical like newborn baby wraps, teething toys, baby clothes, blankets, and other essential baby items that make great gifts.
What are the best educational baby gifts?
For a unique present for baby, choose a gorgeous educational baby toy to stimulate the senses. The best baby toys are those that develop skills related to motor control such as gripping, or introduce the concept of size, shape, colour, and texture. Educational baby toys develop dexterity, memory, colour recognition, hand-eye coordination, and so many more baby developmental skills.
There is nothing more adorable than watching a gorgeous newborn playing and learning with their favourite new goodies that you’ve given them. The new parents will love to baby gaze and watch their bundle of joy explore the world with a sensory baby gift. Musical baby toys or books with animal sounds or classic baby songs like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Old McDonald had a Farm” are also wonderful gifts. Baby will be delighted once he or she discovers how their toy makes sounds.
Are baby books good gifts for a newborn?
Board books are lovely presents for baby. It’s never too early to start reading to a baby. Just listening to a soothing voice as baby drifts off to sleep is a wonderful bonding occasion for parents and their little one. Bedtime stories are a wonderful tradition to begin.
Gifts Australia has a great range of children’s books and baby board books that you can choose as baby gifts or for a 1st birthday. Give a mini library collection of baby picture books or choose a book and toy gift set. It’s nice to have a range of books suitable as baby grows up to allow parents to teach their child a little bit of early reading and understanding. Babies and toddlers from 12 – 36 months may not know how to read, but they sure love baby books with beautiful illustrations. It’s a good start for kids to learn how to recognise pictures of animals and to recognise the sounds and words.
What are the most practical gifts for a new baby?
If you're looking for something that is more practical to give as a present for baby, you can’t go wrong with clothing. Baby clothes gifts not only keep them warm and protected from the cold, but cute and fashionable baby clothes are so much fun for the new parents. They’ll love a mix of handy baby singlets, grow-suits, baby onesies, and stylish baby outfits like knitted cardigans and snuggly dressing gowns for babies and toddlers. Giving 100% cotton baby clothes and wraps makes washing so much easier, plus cotton is super gentle on baby’s delicate skin.
What are some nice sentimental baby gifts?
If you want to give something more sentimental for your gift to baby, then a keepsake present is wonderful for a baby shower gift or a present to welcome a newborn. Baby imprint kits that make a plaster cast of baby’s feet, or a baby-safe inkless print kit that lets the parents make a framed print of baby’s hand and foot prints is a sweet gift they’ll love. New parents are always amazed by how fast baby grows, so giving these gifts before baby is born is a great idea so they can plan ahead and capture a memento of baby’s tiny feet in the first few weeks.
A personalised baby nameplate bracelet is another lovely sentimental gift baby will cherish forever. Crystal gifts for baby, beautiful money boxes, photo frames, and personalised baby booties are more great gift ideas for baby when you want to give a gift to treasure.
Baby journal keepsake gifts for moments to remember
With all the activities surrounding the birth and the first few months of baby’s life, it can be hard to keep track of everything that is going on. A wonderful present idea from the baby gifts range is a baby record book or a keepsake journal baby book that the new parents can use to record special baby milestones, photographs, and daily ponderings as baby grows up. This will allow the new mum and her family to build up a wonderful record of all of the new baby’s achievements and it will, in turn, become a great keepsake to look back on all those wonderful moments in the first months or years of baby’s life.
Baby gifts for bathtime fun
Bath time can be a very special time for new mums and dads where they get to spend very personal and quality time with their newborn baby. They’ll be certain to enjoy a baby gift with a hooded baby towel, organic cotton face washers and all-natural baby shampoo and bubble bath, specially designed for baby’s soft delicate skin. For extra fun, add some bath toys suitable for playtime in the bath for babies and toddlers.
