6 Tips to decide what to get a new baby.

1. Consider what the baby and parents need

Babies are tiny, but they require a ton of supplies to be cared for properly. Getting all the essential items to care for newborns can be super expensive. Baby showers or presents are wonderful ways to relieve the finical stress of having a baby on new parents.

If you’re buying a gift for first time parents, they will appreciate the essential gifts to care for their new baby more so then toys, books, or funny gifts. If the parents don’t have a lot of money they will really appreciate things like diapers, clothing, feeding accessories, cleaning accessories, or gifts to care for baby on the go. If you know the parents have a large family and will already be getting the essentials, then something like the baby age blocks on the list below will be a better present they can use for pictures, track their newborns age, and decorate the baby’s room.

2. Get them a unique gift or one that’s personalized

The best gifts are always ones unique or personalized for the baby. For example, instead of just getting them a plain colored baby blanket, get one that is high end and/or personalized. On this list, you can see a cute baby blanket that has “baby” embroidered on it, and it comes with a matching rattle. Another example is instead of a plain baby book, get one that’s soft and personalized.

3. Buy a present that mom and dad can use

The parents of the newborn will love anything baby accessory that makes their life easier. Things like a on the go diaper bag, sleeping wedge, car seat mirror, supplies backpack, or shusher device are all things that mom and dad will get use out of every day and make their life easier. Things like multipurpose rattles and vibrating stuffed animals.

4. Coordinate with other friends or family members.

If you’re buying a gift for a baby shower the parents might have a list together of everything they need. You can coordinate with the others attending the party so they don’t get duplicates of the same gift. You don’t want them to end up getting 2 high chairs or car seats if they don’t need them. There are so many things newborns need so it is really a waste to get duplicate presents.

5. Is this their first baby?

If it’s the parents first baby then it will be super easy to find a gift for them. Like a said above if you know the parents don’t have a lot of money, getting them a gift to care for their newborn will be a home run. Presents like soothing baby bottles, a bath tub, or on the go care kit are prefect presents for parents having their first baby.

6. Combine Presents

Combining gifts that have a similar theme is always an excellent idea. For example, just from this list you could combine the moose teether with the animal blanket that has a moose printed on it. Another example would be combining the shark themed bib, robe, and puppet book on the list below.
