Useful Baby Shower Gifts For New Parents

 

If you have a friend or family member that is about to become a parent, chances are that you will want to get them a gift to celebrate. There are so many different gift ideas out there that you can get for them. Therefore, it is important that you put some real thought into it and think of something that they will really love. Unfortunately, the market is flooded with gimmicky things that won’t actually do any good.  Therefore, it is good to look through some ideas.

 

Baby Shower Gifts

 

 

Here is a list of top gift ideas for new moms or dads. These are guaranteed to put a smile on the new parents face. 

 

A Hamper of Baby Shower Gifts

i.e. practical gifts for baby

 

You can find many places online that sell ready-made gift-filled hampers, or you can make one yourself. If you are short on time, ready-made ones are a good idea. However, if you choose to make one yourself it can be less expensive and more personalized. Some of the things that you can put into the hamper include Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream (I have heard great things about this product but still need to check it out myself), burp clothes, onesies (in assorted sizes), diapers (lots of them) and baby wipes.  Rather than getting something gimmicky, these practical things will be much more useful!

 

Something to Pamper Mom

 

A new Mom can feel tired and in need of some TLC. So why not treat her to something that she would love for herself? This could be a day at the spa with a massage or a treatment. It could be an orthodontic treatment such as with SmileMaker orthodontics. It can even be a trip to the nail or hair salon.  Do not forget Dad, he may like some pampering too!

Babysitting is another great option.  Watching baby while mom (and ad?) get their treatment?   

 

Food delivery vouchers or food deliveries

 

As a new Mom or Dad, one of the things not on your side is time. Thusly, cooking can quickly feel like a huge chore. Between trying to change diaper after diaper and nursing or organizing baby bottles and/or food you can find that you don’t have the time to eat any food yourself. This is why great baby shower gifts for new parents-to-be includes food. You could offer this in the form of food delivery vouchers such as for a company like Uber Eats. This will enable them to order in healthy and nice food when they really don’t want to cook. You could also gift them vouchers for a supermarket or grocery delivery. They can get their food, and other necessities, without ever leaving home.

You could also consider cooking for them yourself. Why not batch cook some meals and then drop them off? They can pop these in the freezer and then on days where they don’t want to cook, they can just defrost one of these. What a treat to no longer worry about having to slog in the kitchen!!

A family day out coupon

 

Having a baby is expensive. Thusly, the new family might not be able to afford to go out and do many things. A voucher for a day out could be a fun option.

Day trip ideas include a nearby zoo, a farm,  or a play center. Find out what they are interested in and think of how you can incorporate this into something they can all do together. They are sure to appreciate the opportunity to head out of the house for a change of scenery.

 

Spending some quality time together is so important. Click To Tweet

 

Before we wrap up, I also want to give a shout out to gifting a family photoshoot. This would provide the new family with photos that will be loved and cherished forever.

These are just a few simple yet effective things that you can gift for a baby shower or any family gift.

    1. While both parents are extremely important and, likely tired, if a person has just pushed a baby out of their body then they definitely deserve a little extra something.

  1. I think the best shower gift I received was all the diapers! Those things are expensive!! My mom did a “diaper drawing” and for every pack of diapers someone brought, they got one entry into a raffle for a restaurant gift card. We had so many diapers I didn’t have to buy any until my second started using size 4!
