5 Gifts For New Parents That Are Usable

Consider being a parent of a newborn for a moment, think of the items that will be gifted during this special time, teddies and toys that won’t be used for months. 


So, what are some usable newborn baby gifts that can provide immediate help for parents of a newborn baby?  


Practical and usable gifts are always welcome, especially when a new baby is involved!


  1. Nappy Bags for all essential outings.

Taking a newborn baby out for the first time can be a stressful and draining process for parents. Not just making sure that the baby is secure and warm, but also remembering to pack all the possible necessities that newborn babies might need during the exciting adventure into their new world. 


A nappy bag provides compact space for all the small and big items needed, making it a perfect newborn baby gift. Nappy bags can come in so many different sizes and colours that there will sure to be a perfect one for every parent. 



  1. Swaddle blankets for a snug the baby

Muslin wraps are a necessity for a new baby because they help regulate temperature. They are light and flexible, which can ensure a snug swaddle for a comfortable sleep. 


Muslin wraps come in a vast array of colours and patterns, making them a beautiful and practical newborn baby gift. 



  1. Personalised stroller blanket 

Much like the muslin wrap, stroller blankets can be a much-needed item for a newborn baby. You can make it extra special by adding a monogram of the new baby’s name. Such a special item can be practical and be kept as a keepsake when the baby has grown.


Double up on this practical gift with a clip-on stroller toy to keep the baby entertained while snuggled up during their walk with mum and dad. 


  1. Hooded towels for post bath time snuggles

Bath time for babies can be a fun experience! Warm water can help soothe a fitful newborn, so what else is more perfect than a hooded towel for easing post-bath unsettlement. 


Hooded towels can be used to safely swaddle and dry wet fingers and toes while also providing warmth to the baby. 



  1. Padded playmats for tummy time 

Babies grow quickly, meaning that some gifts can be given with future use in mind. A newborn baby won’t be needing "tummy time" immediately but in a few weeks to months, they will. Which make playmats such a usable gift. 


There are many different types, look for ones that are easy to clean, are soft enough for the baby to feel comfortable on and mats that roll up have extra usable points! 

Ask for some guidance on newborn baby gifts

It’s becoming increasingly harder to find practical gifts that parents will need when a baby is born, as lots of expecting parents will purchase practical items themselves.


With this in mind, asking the gift receivers what they will need can help you decide on a more usable gift and one that is appreciated by both parents and baby!
