If you’re having a new baby, you want to make sure that everyone knows so they can buy you the kind of baby gifts you want. There’s no point being coy about gifts because everyone will want to buy you something. So you might as well be specific about what you want rather than be the recipient of unwanted gifts.
You should make a list of gifts that would be of help and value to your baby and you should include one or two treats for yourselves as parents. There’s nothing wrong in asking for newborn baby gifts that might include a bottle of bubbly for the happy couple is there?
There are some brilliant new parent gift baskets that include teddies and blankets plus something for Mummy and Daddy. If you’re into fitness or if you’ve got a hectic lifestyle, you could ask for a jogger or stroller that will enable you to keep moving quickly, whilst also keeping baby comfortable.
As general rule of thumb, ask for gifts that are designed to make your life easier. Also, you might be able to ask your friends and family to help decorate the nursery now that would be helpful!
