Although you can buy baby gifts right out of the box in the stores, there are some inventive people who like to mix and match to make the perfect little gift basket for the new born baby.
Here is an easy guide for those who want a few ideas to make one.
Is it a boy or is it a girl?
The first thing to consider before buying baby gifts is the gender of the child. It goes without saying that if it is a boy, blue things and if it is a girl, pink things. However, there is a wide range of products and colours that are available in stores for tiny tots who may turn out to be much bolder than pink and blue!
If the gender of the child is unknown, even then there are plenty of options out there.
Places to buy gifts
Buying gifts for the little ones has been made easy as there are now separate department stores that only sell children’s products. However, consideration should be given as to what sort of places, the brands of the items and conditions of the sold items.
Special care must be given as these are gifts for new born babies and gifting unhygienic clothes or expired food would be a dangerous matter.
There are some stores that provide newborn baby gift ideas in the form of pamphlets/handouts and provide assistance in person if needed, to make it easy for people to choose their presents for babies and children.
Buying gifts for a baby is a delicate subject. Nevertheless, there is a wide range of items available to make a hamper out of. You can find out about newborn baby gift ideas by talking to mothers, relatives and other friends as well. Baby feeding supplies like bottles, pacifiers, bottled foods, spoons, plates and bibs along with bathing essentials like mild soaps and shampoos which may already come in cases, baby towels, washcloths and baby tubs.
Toys are of not much use to the child at its primary stage unless it is a toy mobile or a walker. When buying toys for children, be aware of small pieces that may be harmful to it.
Baby clothes are always a good choice as children change about 4-5 times a day when younger. Socks, onesies, mittens, baby shoes may be purchased in bigger sizes so the baby can wear it when older.
Some may choose to give larger gifts like baby cots, diaper changing stations, children’s cupboards or even design a nursery for the little one.
Gift wrapping ideas
After collecting and buying the baby gifts, rather than wrapping it all individually, baby gifts can all be put into a gift hamper/basket and wrapped with clear papers and ribbons. This would also save time on opening each gift individually and is also a creative way of giving gifts.
Another innovative idea is putting gifts into a baby stroller or maybe a baby crib too.
