The Best Gift Ideas For Birth – Guide

In life, you often face the following problem: what gifts are appropriate for a newborn and how to avoid duplication of gifts? It becomes even more difficult when your friends, relatives or family are already expecting their second child. They probably already have some products at home and don’t even need many things anymore.

However, you still have many possibilities to give a nice and individual gift, because there are products that parents can usually always use. We will show you which gifts are really useful with the help of our checklist. The product recommendations give you more ideas and suggestions for the perfect gift.

Checklist For Gifts For Birth

Usefulness
  • First of all, you should always ask yourself in what way the gift could be useful in everyday life for child or parents. Ultimately, choose the gift according to this criterion.
  • Clothing: When you have a baby, there are a variety of things that you need. If you want to give the child something to wear, a romper suit with feet is suitable, because babies freeze most quickly on them. Also baby socks can certainly use new parents well.
  • Care products: Especially after birth, it is not uncommon for a newborn to suffer from dry skin. You certainly can’t go wrong with care products that don’t contain minerals, as these will certainly be used in the future.
  • Toys and accessories: Especially at the beginning, parents need play blankets, spit-up cloths or even music boxes so that the child can listen to music to fall asleep.
  • In order to avoid duplication, it makes sense to discuss in advance with the new parents what else they might need.
First Child or Additional Child
  • A role in the gifts for the birth can also play whether it is the first or another child for a family.
  • With the first child, many things need to be purchased that are already present with the second or third child. So creativity is also needed here. It does not always have to be something material.
  • Instead of a gift, you can also give the new parents an experience. This way, child and parents can experience something together and you don’t run the risk of buying things that the parents already own.
Original Ideas
  • It is especially nice to give original or personalized things as a gift for the birth.
  • These are things parents might not purchase themselves. But that makes them wonderful gifts and personal memories. This includes, for example, the baby book. Parents can write in it the first word, the first steps and other eventful changes and fill the blank pages with pictures. It will also go down well if you make something yourself (for example, pacifier chains or blankets). Since it’s an individual one-of-a-kind item, your friends, relatives or family will surely cherish it.
  • Vouchers for a photo shoot with baby or an impression set for a baby’s feet can also be a nice idea and create additional memories.
  • As a rule, it is usually the baby who receives the gift. But certainly the parents are also happy about a small attention, such as care products or a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

FAQ About Gifts For Birth

How much should a birth gift cost?

The value for a birth gift varies with the contact you have with the new parents. Are they family members? Close friends or rather acquaintances? According to this, one can align the value of a gift. Otherwise, you should use your own discretion. Also, much more important than the value is the gesture of the gift.

When can I give the gift for the birth?

As soon as you know that the child is born and the mother and child are well, you can send the family a gift for the birth.

What kind of gift should be given for the birth?

A gift for the birth can be very different. A part for the initial equipment is just as conceivable as an original or personalized gift.

How do I wrap a gift for the birth?

Do not wrap your gift uncharitably, but use beautiful wrapping paper in bright colors. This way you make it clear that you have made an effort and that your friends or family are important to you. In keeping with the theme, you can also use baby motifs or wrap your gift in cute boxes. Also use a nice ribbon in a matching color.
