Are you looking for gift options for new parents? If so, here are a few of our suggestions for you…
Gift cards for prams, cots and bouncers
Undoubtedly, these gift options are a little priceyso this is appropriate for when you happen to be close to your gift receivers. Prams, cots and bouncers are something every parent will want and need; however, it’s also something people generally like picking out themselves. If you want to buy it for them, make sure the store you get it from will allow them to exchange it, if they happen to want something else. If not, a gift card option is always better to consider.
Make their outings easier
It’s no secret that for the initial few weeks after the baby is born, the new parents are basically going to be home bound. However, once they start feeling more confident, their outings will happen as usual. Travelling with a baby is quite messy if you’re not used to it, so help them make their outings easier through your gifts. Leather nappy bags are a chic option for those who have an aversion to carrying pastel colored diaper bags. Car seats are essential when carting a baby around. If your gift receivers happen to be fond of cycling, then a baby carrier for their bikes will also make a wonderful gift…
Food gifts for the hungry
Designer diaper bags are great and all that, but there’s so much more to choose from if you want your gift to be meaningful. First time parents will also have difficulties with handling their chores. Simple things like making their meals will take more effort; simply because they’re still learning to juggle their responsibilities. Making a few home made freezer meals that they only have to pop in the microwave or oven will be a lovely gesture and a gift to them. If you are not the domestic kind, or if you yourself simply don’t have time for cooking, opt instead to gifting them a few vouchers from a diner close to their home. If that diner happens to have a take out option, that’s even better.
The gift of freedom
Above all difficulties, first time parents suffer from a lack of freedom. Since babies are highly demanding and need a lot of attention, it’s no surprise that new parents are often feeling tired to the bone and overwhelmed. Add to that, they hardly get a lot of sleep at night; thanks to the baby keeping them awake.
