Much thought goes into trying to think of baby gifts. You want to make sure the gift is relevant and practical and perhaps unique to you. If practicality is important then skip the silverware products and only consider them at the time of the Christening, if indeed the parents are having one.
There is a great tip when it comes to buying gifts for the baby; simply get a token gift for the baby and choose something that doesn’t matter if someone else duplicates it such as baby grows or nappies. Then focus your attention on the mother and father and come up with a gift that will be appreciated by them in the next few months. No matter how well the new parents prepare for the new arrival, the birth of their baby will without doubt turn their lives upside down for the first few weeks and probably longer. They will have only a vague idea of what day it is, sleep will be something that is in extreme short supply and meals will grabbed on the run!
Why not put together a food hamper or take round a homemade meal such as a hearty casserole? They might not get the chance to tuck in straight away. It might take some days before they get round to it, but at some point perhaps in the middle of the night your lovely lasagne will seem like heaven to them!
