Clothes for the new baby are always a popular choice. If you know the gender of the baby, pink or blue are fine, but if you don’t, try white, yellow or green instead.
A bouncy seat is a must have for a new baby, and if the new parents don’t have one yet, it can be the perfect gift.
A baby monitor is another thoughtful gift for mums and dads to be. Or you could buy a breathing monitor that clips onto baby’s nappy.
Most new parents find that they never seem to have enough bedding for their baby. Buying a set or two of sheets, blankets and pillow cases can be a very thoughtful idea.
Often, new parents won’t think of buying convenience items like baby carriers or slings. So if you’re stumped about what to buy, they can be a great choice.
Toys, books and bath goodies are another popular choice, and since you can never have too many of them, they’re always appreciated. A nappy bag is another good gift idea. Stock it with plenty of small baby items, and it’ll definitely be a hit.
What you choose to buy as a gift for new parents is up to you. Something as simple as several packets of nappies in different sizes can be a great idea, or you could choose something unique, like a painting for the baby’s room. Think outside the box, or stick to common gifts – whatever you bring is sure to be appreciated!
