Baby Gift Ideas

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 01-11-2007

Coming up with gift ideas can often be quite tricky. And the problem is compounded when the intended recipient of the gift is a baby. This is because babies are too young to reveal individual preferences that can suggest appropriate gift ideas. Besides, babies grow fast. Thus, a baby gift that seemed ideal at the time of giving it may very soon become completely irrelevant.


So how do you buy baby gifts? Here are some ideas with which it may be difficult to go wrong:



All babies love to play with toys. Besides, there is an almost endless variety of them available. You can choose from soft cuddly animals, toys that display automatic movement, those that emit sounds, or interactive toys that respond to the baby’s actions. The most important thing while buying toys as baby gifts is the safety aspect. Only buy toys, which are certified safe for babies.



Clothes may be another good baby gift option. Also, because babies outgrow their clothes quickly, your gift is likely to be used and appreciated. For newborns, always buy clothes for babies at least 6 months older unless you are really in charge of setting up the nursery. New parents always have a lot of things for the first months, but will need more things for a bit later on.



Blankets are actually traditional baby gifts that were given to newborns in some societies. You can choose from a variety of designs and colors, or maybe even get one of those with a personalized greeting or message written on it. A treasured blanket sometimes stays with a child for many years.


Keepsake Kit

This is an exciting baby gift idea, especially for a newborn. A keepsake kit helps to preserve early memories of the baby such as photographs, things used by the baby, or hand and foot impressions. This is one baby gift that will be enjoyed by both, the child and the parents, for many years to come.
