Sharing is caring!

When someone you know is about to be a parent, you know that a baby shower is imminent. But while it is a great way to celebrate such a monumental part of their lives, getting them a gift is equally important. 

Even if you’re not a parent yourself, everyone knows that for moms and dads, especially new parents, life can be pretty stressful. So, giving them gifts that make their lives a bit easier and help them, either personally or as a parent, is always great. 

In this article, we’re giving you some innovative gift ideas and telling you what you can give your “soon-to-be-parents” or “new parent” friends. 

  1. Baby Items 

This might seem a bit hackneyed, but it remains a classic. You can never go wrong with baby items when buying a gift for new parents because, let’s be honest – baby items are expensive, and most first-time parents will require a ton of products. One way you can make this interesting is by gifting them items that correlate to their baby’s name. So, for instance, if their baby’s name starts with Z, get them baby items starting with Z. It’s a great way to add some quirk and make a classic idea a bit newer. 

  1. Restaurant Coupons

For most parents, the first few months after having their baby, and sometimes even the whole year, can be incredibly hectic. Especially if this is their first child. Taking care of a newborn is a full-time job, and it can often prevent them from taking care of their health and well-being. Getting them restaurant coupons to their favorite eateries will allow them to take some time off for themselves, and bring some respite to their hectic lives, not to mention that it will also bring them simple joy. A great idea here is to can create a gift bag of restaurant coupons and dinner certificates for various eateries. 

  1. Personal Grooming Products

Like we just stated above, taking care of a baby is a full-time job. There is no break, and you constantly have to be at the beck-and-call of your baby. Keeping up with such a schedule can often become incredibly taxing, and a lot of the time, the shower or the bath is the only time parents can have some “me” time. By getting them some top-notch personal grooming products, such as good skincare, bath products, and more, you’ll allow them to have something special of their own and help them to take care of themselves, even during those busy months.

  1. Nursing Clothes

Being a pregnant or nursing mother means having to completely change the way you dress. Getting a new mother nursing clothes is an excellent gift idea as it’s useful and will be greatly appreciated. Unlike earlier, nursing clothes nowadays are quite fashionable and they’re available in a wide variety of styles. Major fashion companies like HM have nursing cloth lines now. Pick out a few that you think will best suit your friend and gift it to her. One of the best things about this is that sizing isn’t much of a matter in the case of nursing clothes, since most of them tend to be stretchy. 

  1. Premium Bed Accessories 

When you have a newborn in your house, your bed is the only respite you get. While most of the day is spent taking care of their baby, parents get some downtime only when they come to bed at night. So another great gift idea is high, -end premium bed accessories, which include luxurious bedspreads, weighted blankets, and more. This will help them make their bed a haven, to which they can retreat after a hard day of parenting, and trust me, they will appreciate you for this greatly. You can even get them matching sets for their bedroom as well as for their baby’s crib. 

  1. A Coffee Maker

Last but not least, we suggest a coffee maker. Contrary to what most people think, new parents, run not on sleep, but on adrenaline and caffeine. After all, it would be impossible to get to work the next morning after taking care of a crying child the whole night, if you didn’t have coffee, right? By getting them a coffee maker, you can make their day a little better and give them the experience of drinking good coffee, even if it is to stake off pangs of sleep. You can find a variety of coffee makers, of various prices and styles both online as well as offline.
