The arrival of a baby is an event worth celebrating and what better way than with a thoughtful gift. From keepsakes for the baby to functional gifts for the parents, there are endless options to choose from. But if you don’t want to buy the same items as everyone else, finding a suitable gift can be challenging. The last thing you want is to buy them something they already have. So whether it’s for your sister or a work colleague, here are some unique ideas that can make your search for a beautiful gift much easier.
Many people don’t consider quilts because they see them as a boring gift to give to a newborn and their parents. But in fact, they make excellent gifts that can provide style and function. A quilt can be used to keep the baby and their Mother warm during late night feeds. They can be placed over a chair or crib in their nursery to provide color and interest in the space. Despite their old-fashioned reputation, handmade quilts for babies can look stylish. From geometric patterns to bold colors, they can be a modern addition to a nursery or home. They can even be personalized with the baby’s name, birthday and time of birth too. Making them a beautiful keepsake for the whole family to enjoy.
Wooden toy box
A wooden toy box is an amazing gift for a newborn that they can use throughout their childhood. This will be the place where their favorite toys and games can be safely stored in between play time. You can use a timeless rectangular design or go for something more detailed and extravagant like a treasure chest. Consider the decor of the nursery and the tastes of the parents to ensure you’re buying a gift that works within their home. You should also buy a box that has safety features that can stop small fingers from becoming trapped or stuck. This may even be an item of furniture that this baby passes on to their own children.
Nursery wall art
The nursery is where the newborn and their parents will spend a great deal of their time. From nappy changes to bedtime stories, it’s a sanctuary where they can relax and spend time together. So why not buy some wall art as a gift to add to this vital room. It’s easier to choose a suitable piece of wall art if you have seen the nursery beforehand. Ask your friend or relative to show you a picture of their baby’s nursery to help you choose an image in keeping with the color and theme. From princess castles to woodland creatures, wall art for nurseries come in an array of sizes and designs. There are also some options that allow you to include the baby’s name and photographs within the design.
These gifts are perfect for a newborn baby but are also fantastic gifts for Moms and Dads too. They can be items they keep even after their baby is fully grown. So use these ideas or think of your own to buy a gift that can be treasured forever.
