If you know for a fact that the parents-to-be have been inundated with cuddly toys, blankets and rattles then you may be scratching your head for ideas for suitable newborn baby gifts. You want to find something that the parents-to-be will find useful so here are some ideas for alternative baby gifts:
You can buy baby clothes according to weight and age. As the smaller sizes tend to be outgrown very rapidly opt for larger sizes. You can work out the season the baby will reach by a certain age by taking into account the due date. If the gender of the baby is still unknown choose neutral colours such as creams and lemons or buy a gift card so the parents can buy clothes in blue or pink when the baby arrives.
Gifts for Mum
The mum-to-be can get a little jaded with being bought baby things for their birthday and Christmas in the run up to the birth. A lovely idea is to buy a gift for mum so that she can pamper herself after the birth. Ideas are scented bath oils, relaxation candles and aromatherapy sets. Mum won’t get a great deal of time to spend on herself in the initial months of being a new mum so gifts that give her some time to focus on herself will be much appreciated.
