When a new baby is welcomed into the family, it can be difficult to think of a standout gift which nobody else will think of. Parents are often left with multiple babygrows, name plaques, bibs and newborn essentials from various family members and friends. Wouldn’t it be great to find a present that’s unique and the new parents will love? Here’s a few great ideas to make sure your present is the favourite!
Baby and Parent Hamper
Making your own hamper is a lovely personal touch and acts as a present for both mummy and baby. You could include soothing and calming treats for the new parents such as bubble bath and scented candles, and gifts for the newborn such as a personalised teddy. Of course you know the personality of the parents so can include some of their favourite things too, and a lovely basket for the baby’s room to keep belongings in.
Rather than something practical which the parents can buy themselves, why not go for a sentimental gift? A personalised newspaper, with the date the baby was born, is a fun and special gift. You can even include a photo and the new parents can choose whether to have it framed or keep it in a memory box with other keepsakes.
If you wish you could hand make something for the little bundle of joy, but simply don’t have the skills, then do the next best thing. The gorgeous baby sets at Wool Magic are handknitted by grannies across the UK and are made from the highest quality merino wool. The super soft set includes a matching hat with flaps, mittens and socks to keep the baby nice and warm when it’s cold outside.
OK so the adorable little one may not be able to enjoy this one just yet, but it’s an extra special occasion which needs marking with some bubbles! Personalise a bottle of champers with the baby’s name and date of birth for a customised gift the parents are guaranteed to love.
Personalised Blanket or Towel
Newborn babies receive lots and lots of clothes, so sometimes it’s best to think of something different. Little babes need towels and blankets too, so why not choose a super soft one and get it printed with the baby’s name?
Personalised Toy Crate
Wooden crates are really on trend at the moment, and look great in a nursery filled with toys. Why not have one personalised as a gift that keeps on giving as the child grows up? A crate isn’t something that the baby will grow out of so it’s a great long lasting present that the whole family will appreciate.
Hopefully we’ve given you a few ideas to work with so your new baby present won’t be duplicated!
