Here is my list of unique new-born gift ideas:
1. Baby’s Clothes
You can choose baby’s clothing items like mittens, bibs, vests, caps, booties. Keep in mind to buy only cotton clothes. Avoid synthetic fabrics.
2. Baby Diapers
You can never go wrong with gifting diapers. Disposable diapers of many reputed brands are available in the market. You can also buy cloth diapers if you are environment conscious. Bear in mind to buy the age-appropriate size of diapers.
3. Baby Bath
New moms may feel anxious about bathing their newborn baby, as they seem very fragile. So, gifting a baby bath can certainly help them in this task. You can buy the portable kind, which makes bathing the baby easier and more practical.
4. Baby Photo Album
New parents are sure to love this gift. Gifting a baby photo album can help parents record all the first-year milestones of their baby. They can paste pictures and footprints of their baby, along with personal details like the birth weight of the baby, the time he/she was born, and so on, for memory’s sake.
5. Baby’s Swaddling Cloth
Baby’s swaddling clothes and baby sheets can be another beneficial gift, as babies tend to make a lot of mess. Hence, draping sheets are always needed in large numbers. Again, do remember to buy the cotton ones.
6. Silver Jewellery Items
Traditionally, gifting silver items to the newborn baby is considered auspicious, as silver metal has several health benefits. You can gift anything, from silver bangles or anklets, to silver glasses, bowls or spoons.
7. Rattlers and Musical Toys
The market is full of exciting choices when it comes to rattlers and musical toys for newborn babies. Not only are they available in adorable designs, but are also peppy and soothing, which is a sure shot entertainer for the baby.
8. Baby’s Bed Linen
Baby’s bed linen also makes for a great gift. Baby’s bedding sets are available in attractive designs. Choosing a quick dry variety is a good idea. You can also go in for the latest fad, sleeping bags with cute motifs, for the newborn baby, which are sure to keep the baby snug.
9. Baby’s Room Decor
Gifting items for the baby’s room décor can be a fun idea. You may have no trouble choosing from a wide selection of things, like picture frames, wall stickers, baby room lighting, height charts, rugs and carpets, drapes, etc.
10. Cot Mobiles/Play Gym
A new parent may appreciate having a cot mobile or a play gym, which can engage their baby, while allowing them to do some chores. You can opt for the musical kinds in bold colours.
