Presents For New Babies

Sharing is caring!

Who doesn’t love to shop for a newborn?! There’s nothing more special than a new birth, and bringing the baby and its parents a thoughtful, cute, and useful gift! Sometimes, it can be difficult though, especially if you’ve never had a baby yourself or if it’s been a long time. But fear not, I’ve rounded up some perfect presents for new babies. These are sure to be a hit with the child and the proud new parents.

I can’t think of a more perfect new baby present than a tiny pair of Moccasins from Freshly Picked. A great unisex color like cherry is perfect for a boy or girl, but if its not your pick, these come in an array of color choices. Plus, did you catch Susan, the owner, on Shark Tank last week? She got a deal with Damon. How cool is that?! Retail- $60

Baby’s First Books

Start the newborn’s book collection by picking up a book set from Target to add to their library. Books are the gift that keep on giving. Retail- $12.19

white onesies


I lost track very quickly of how many onesies my newborn was going through. I think all parents can agree that you can never have too many basic onesies for your little ones! These Gerber onesies from Amazon are soft, simple, and perfect for layering. Retail- $9.99

Gift Card

If you’re stumped on a gift idea for the newborn, why not give them a gift card from somewhere like Amazon or Buy Buy Baby? First time parents often forget certain items or discover after they give birth that they need things they didn’t think they would. If they have a gift card they will be able to purchase those much needed items!

Great Tee.

Sometimes I think it’s nice to gift the new baby something in a size other than newborn. Newborn items are fabulous, but the parents may be getting a lot of that so if you’ve found an adorable tee like this one from Finomenon Kids that comes in a six month infant size, don’t let that stop you from making it a baby gift! This shop has amazing tees, and if the new baby is a boy, well there’s a make them GIRLS go loco tee! Retail- $23

I never thought of gifting a new born a different sized top. The picture you have supplied showing this looks so adorable. I also love those personalized pants you could have anything typed up onto them.

My favorite gifts to give are IKEA burp cloths (they're huge! totally great!) and the NoseFrida (such a lifesaver!).

I love buying Baby's First...I just bought my BBF a bunch of Baby's First bibs, outfits, rattles etc. I waited until the holiday was over and got them very cheap. I got her Baby's First Halloween, Thanksgiving,. Christmas, etc. It was so fun collecting them throughout the year. I think I may continue this tradition :)
