Baby Leggings. Baby’s first leggings will keep them warm and their legs safe from insect bites. There are even specialty stores that will allow you to have a personalized leggings, with their name sprinted on it for just $30.
Complete Social or Snuggle Set. Gift the newborn with complete set of blanket, pillow and comfortable headcap. A great range to select from and many come in an easy to giftwrap box.
First Books. Check out audio books as babies especially 4 months are still developing their senses of hearing and touch. Give them books that have different textures and sounds. A baby to toddler to child can never have too many books to read and reading time with mom or dad (gran or grandpa) is always looked forward to.
Baby Rattles. Babies listen to sounds and with grip-friendly rattles, they would surely love to hear to it. You can also choose, Wind Chime Toys. Parents can add these to auditory educational toys for the baby’s stroller. Just make sure that it has no parts that can pose for choking hazard as baby’s will surely pull it out and try to put in their mouths.
Burp Clothes. Burping time is difficult and sometimes it can be messy. So give the parents something to smile about when you give them these to use after breastfeeding or mealtime.
Statement Baby Clothes. Who said statements are just for adults to make? Well statements shirts are becoming a trend for gift ideas for babies.
Breast Pump and Other First Month Nursing Necessities. Add a nursing pillow, nursing cover, baby seat, diaper bag. If you got a lot of money, then add stroller or crib to the list! Surely parents will hug you for such generosity.
For practical gift ideas, you can buy hygiene kit (baby shampoo, towels, nappies among other things) to add to consumables of babies. A baby thermometer is also a great idea.
My personal favorite, the Baby Bullet. Not because this is a Baby Bullet blog but because parents find it very economical and practical. Very helpful for parents who would like to make homemade purees would surely kiss you incessantly for this awesome gift.
