In this gifts for babies blog, I am going to look at 5 of the most common gifts for babies in the UK right now, some of them being very simple and good value for money, and others being slightly more expensive, but very much worth the extra cost if you can afford it.
Gift wrapped nappies – Many people have a difficult time deciding what on earth to buy a new-born, or a baby who is just a few months old. How about the idea of buying a few packets of gift wrapped nappies? Sounds a little bit odd, or even cheap (but nappies are not cheap!) but at least you can be sure that these gifts for babies will be used, and used in very large numbers, especially during the first few weeks and months of a baby’s life. If you don’t know the size of the nappy, just buy new born or nearly new-born as these should work perfectly. Although very simple, this idea makes an amazing new born gift, and the parents would also be very grateful.
Personalised baby grow – Personalised gifts for babies are becoming very popular now, and none more so than a personalised baby grow. This great gift idea can either be bought off the shelf with a standard phrase such as, tiny trouble, 50% mummy 50% daddy, or iPood, or can be specially made by some stores with either the babies name, date of birth, or a phrase of your own choosing. If twins are involved you can have great fun designing matching baby grow gifts for babies.
A soft toy – A must have for any new born baby. With thousands of designs and sizes in stores both online and offline, there is a great choice of soft toy gifts for babies. Pink or blue, or neutral, large, small or medium, the list goes on. Make sure you know the material the toy is made from is the very soft cotton for baby to snuggle up to.
Personalised blanket – In a similar way as personalised baby grows have become very popular now, so have personalised blankets. Again there are two main types of personalised blankets you can buy as gifts for babies, the first being the cheaper off the shelf design with a selection of standard phrases, or alternatively a bespoke design can be produced but probably at a higher cost. Obviously the main colours are pink and blue, but a neutral blanket is a good idea if you buy before baby is born.
A baby book – Not a 50 page novel with small type and no pictures , but a soft cloth book with just a few colourful pages with bright designs and shapes inside, and a few safe shapes and other interesting items for baby to play with as she lies in her cot. These can only cost a few pounds each, and are one of the very best value gifts for babies you can buy. You can also be sure that baby will get lots of use out of it for a good number of months to come.
