Gift-giving has been a fundamental part of any occasion. When you give a gift, it will help show the special person in your life that you love him or her without saying a word. Gift-giving does not have to break the bank. You can give a gift that is inexpensive yet practical. If there is a special person in your life who is expecting a baby for the first time, congratulate them by giving a gift.

Take note though that not all baby items are important. They may look cute and irresistible, but the parents and the baby may not need them. When you are fairly new to gift-giving, know that it can be quite tricky. To help you get rolling, here is the list of the great baby gift ideas you can factor in.

Baby Stroller

A baby stroller is a great baby gift idea for first time parents who are close to you. It can come in handy if they need to free their hands for a while. A baby carrier is a good idea, too. When shopping for a baby carrier, go for an ergonomic type of baby carrier so the baby can move comfortably. Baby strollers work nearly the same way as baby carriers, but they can provide extra comfort, especially to the parents. Also, they support baby’s development, as he or she can learn how to interact during the first few months of his or her life.

Gift Card

If you have ran out of ideas, a gift is a thoughtful baby gift idea, still. The parents can use it to shop for their baby’s needs at a particular store.

Clothing is a human need which only makes sense to gift a few sets of clothes like beanies, burp clothes, pants, sweaters, and shirts. They can keep the baby warm during cold days.

Educational Toys

Educational toys promote every baby’s growth and development. It can help in developing motor skills, improving hand-eye coordination, increasing IQ, and other things. Be sure the educational toys are age-appropriate, though. If you are on the lookout for an educational toy to give, go for one that the parents can easily throw in the bag.

Milestone Discs

Help the parents track their baby’s milestones with baby milestone wooden discs. They are beautiful which is perfect for photo shoots. 

Diapering Items

Diapers, specifically disposable diapers, are expensive. They can hurt the parents’ pockets, for sure. A monthly diaper subscription is something you can give to help the parents save money. If you are environmentally-conscious, go for cloth type diapers. They are re-usable and won’t harm the planet.

Bottle Sterilizer

A bottle sterilizer comes with a hefty price tag. Thus, help the parents by gifting a quality bottle sterilizer. Do not forget to test it out before making a purchase.

DIY Gift

If you want a personalized gift, give a DIY gift. If you know how to make clothes, knit a sweater with the baby’s name on it.

The baby gift ideas are endless. Give one that is functional.
