If you have a friend, sister, coworker or relative who is going to have a baby soon, you might be wondering what to give as a gift.
Maybe you are trying to remember when you had a newborn, thinking back to what was helpful or necessary. Maybe you’ve scoured her registry and there is nothing left in your budget.
Buying a new mom baby gifts is hard, but it doesn’t have to be. There are a few tried-and-true staples that every mom-to-be will love to unwrap and use once baby makes his or her appearance. Read on:
Herbal bath supplies
Most new moms really appreciate taking a nice herbal bath with their babies, no matter where they choose to birth. It’s a bonding and relaxing time for a new mom and it can also aid in the healing process. Packaged with some cozy socks and a snuggly towel for baby, this can make a very thoughtful gift.
If you know the mom-to-be plans to nurse, gathering a basket of necessary nursing items can be a cherished gift. A big water bottle, lanolin, a book on breastfeeding, some soft reusable nursing pads and maybe a muslin burp cloth or two makes a useful and thoughtful gift.
Again, if you know the new parents plan to cloth diaper, gifting them with some cute and fluffy new diapers will brighten their day and be a fun gift to open and enjoy. Who doesn’t love cute new cloth diapers?
Baby bath kit
Let’s face it: New moms will likely be a little wary of bathing their baby for the first time so make it easy (and fun!) with a nice bath kit. Some organic bath products, soft washcloths and towels and even a few fun toys (for when baby gets a little older) will be a wonderful gift.
