Thoughtful and Useful Gifts That Parents-to-Be Will Love
We all know the excitement of a new member joining the family. Not just the parents-to-be but the whole family gets excited and is eager to welcome the little one. The arrival of a new member to the family is a monumental time and hence new mom and dad will be bombarded with people who will want to meet their newborn. That’s why many people opt for organizing a small and informal baby shower that will introduce their newborn to the closest family and friends.
Baby showers are the perfect way to celebrate the amazing arrival and demonstrate joy by showering the new parents with lovely gifts. As new parents, they might be feeling overwhelmed by all the ‘normal’ things that they are not getting through, so a little pampering and spoiling would be really nice.
There are so many adorable baby shower gifts for moms and babies out there, but not all are as useful as they might seem. New parents need practical gifts they can actually use to make their lives a little easier during this difficult but rewarding time. Here are some thoughtful gift ideas useful for first-time parents.
Chocolate and Flower Bouquets
Beautiful hampers generously filled with all sorts of delights are one of the most meaningful gifts for new parents. From delectable chocolates, floral gins and even vegan treats, there is plenty of hamper gift ideas that will surely impress new parents. Chocolates and flowers are an incredibly thoughtful present that new moms will absolutely love. The combo of chocolates with flowers, biscuits, teddy bears, personalized mugs, and even alcoholic tipples will help the new mommy feel like her old self again and feel special and loved.
Postpartum Care Kit
When you are looking for meaningful new mother gifts, you can’t go wrong with a postpartum care kit. Giving birth can take its toll on a woman’s body, so new mommies definitely need some extra tender love and care. A self-care gift box filled to the brim with witch hazel pads, nipple cream, good lotion, under-eye gel pads, earplugs, and a nice sitz bath solution would be the go-to gift for new moms. This convenient kit with over-the-counter items will help the new mom to take care of herself at home and hence speed up the recovery process.
Comfy Loungewear Set
A good set of comfy nursing loungewear is one of the best gifts for new parents. There are so many loungewear options available out there, including staple joggers, pyjamas and soft tops, perfect for the hospital or postpartum time at home. They have easy breastfeeding access and extra stretchy fabric to help keep new moms comfortable while feeding their little ones.
Newborn Baby Clothing Set
Newborns need a lot of stuff and clothes are one of the most appreciated. There are plenty of adorable baby clothing sets made with snuggly soft fabrics and in the cutest designs perfect for little boys and girls aged 0 to 9 months. Essential baby grows, on-trend t-shirts and delightful dresses, you can find everything you need for a newborn. Stretchy jumpsuits that fasten at the front are probably the best, as well as tops with envelope necks, which are easier to get over the baby’s head. The clothes you choose should be comfortable, soft and easy to take care of.
Baby Towels and Washcloths
An organic baby towel with hood and washcloth gift set, delivered in a high-quality luxury gift box, makes the perfect family gift for a baby, mummy and a new daddy. When the baby’s bath is over, the new parent would absolutely love to have a warm, fluffy towel waiting. Making bathtime calm and relaxing aids a good nights sleep. There are plenty of cute and super-soft, perfectly-sized baby towels and washcloths that will keep the little one warm, dry, and looking extra cute.
Baby Skin Care Essentials
A convenient set that puts together a collection of baby-care essentials makes the perfect pampering gift for a newborn. Babies have sensitive and delicate skin, so choose gentle and natural products that are hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and paediatrician approved. Look for baby soaps, washes/cleansers, and shampoos that are mild and safe for nurturing the baby’s delicate skin and hair. The products shouldn’t rob the baby’s skin of moisture.
