What To Gift New Parents?

Posted on by .

If you are looking for a gift option for new parents that are a little more meaningful than that you’d give at baby showers, then here are a few of our suggestions for you…

Your services as a babysitter

Whether your gift receivers are first time parents or not, one thing they definitely will be as new parents is “exhausted”. Babies generally live in their own rules, and have both parents running around trying to keep them happy. And if the baby happens to have older siblings, then it’s just more chaos to what is already a messy situation. In a moment like this, even getting to nap in peace without worrying about the baby harming itself while you are asleep can feel like a blessing. So if you are good with kids, then offer your babysitting services as a gift. They can choose if they want to sleep it off, or get out of the house for a few hours while you man the ship.

A first aid box for the baby

Most homes have all efficient and fully stocked first aid box for emergencies. However, once a baby arrives to a home, the needs of a first aid box, or the items that you stock in it will definitely have a change. An perfect ear thermometer instead of an ordinary one, plenty more plasters for the eventual cuts and bruises, baby essential medicines, gripe waters and other colic relieves…these are things that new parents take time to replace; often as they grow more experienced. If you have more knowledge about the basic necessities of a baby first aid, and gift that to them, they will surely be more prepared to face unexpected injuries and minor illnesses. 

Helping them make their home safe

Having a first aid box with bandages and dermlite Australia and medicines more suitable for a baby is a valuable addition to any household; especially when the baby start growing and exploring his or her home. However, most parents are keen on preventing such injuries; resulting in them trying to make their home baby safe. Baby gates for the kitchen or stairs, corner guards for your sharp furniture, soft and padded floor mats for baby’s room, even cot or bed bumpers can make great gifts for new parents trying to make their home a safe space for their baby to explore.

A gift card to a high-end restaurant or a spa

Sometimes, the best gift you can give new parents is a chance to get away from their baby for a few hours. Taking care of a baby 24 hours a day can be very tiring, and getting a break from it, even if its for a few hours can help your new parents rejuvenate and feel more refreshed. Personally we feel a gift card to a high end restaurant (where they’ll have to dress up and be presentable for; something most new parents don’t do) or a gift card to a spa or massage parlor (where they can let go and relax) will make a perfect gift. However, if this is not an affordable option for you, then even movie tickets for the two of them will do quite nicely in our opinion…
