Giving First-Size Baby Clothes As A Gift

When people hear the fantastic news that someone is expecting a baby their first instinct is to buy a gift to congratulate them. Many people opt for an outfit, excited at the prospect of seeing the new bundle of joy wearing something they’ve picked. 

However, new parents are often inundated with newborn clothes. It may be beneficial to ask expecting parents what it is they need before rushing into making a gift choice. 

Newborns usually spend the first few months of their lives in multiple sleepsuits a day, outfit changes during the early days are a given. So if you’re wanting to get newborn items soft onesies and sleepsuits are a great option.

Additional Gifts

Comforters are a popular gift and for good reason. They’re a great way to soothe babies’ and having multiple means it doesn’t matter when one inevitably has to go into the wash. 

There is nothing quite like the joy that comes from hearing a baby giggle. Rattles are a great sensory toy for newborns and beyond. The Keel Eco Stick Rattle is 100% recycled so a fantastic option for environmentally conscious parents. 

Practical gifts are a great option. Don’t be afraid to ask expecting parents what they need. These gifts are often the most appreciated as they will get used on a daily basis and save them money and time searching for the item themselves. 

Changing mats whilst being a useful gift can also complement the decor of a nursery. We stock a range of beautiful changing mats from the trusted brand Gildred Bird. Team with nappies, cotton wool balls, and nappy bags to help prepare for the new arrival. 

Night lights and sleep aids can help little ones sleep more soundly at night. Around 3 months babies’ will have developed a circadian rhythm meaning sleep aids will be able to help them sleep through the night, something new parents will be thankful for. Of course, it is important to remember this is not the case for all, and every baby will sleep through in their own time.
