Gifts for Newborns & Their Parents

When someone in your family or a friend announces they are expecting a new bay or babies to their family one of the things that springs to mind, after jumping for joy, is ‘BABY SHOPPING!!!!!’ I hope you find this useful for Gifts for Newborns & Their Parents.

So the search for the present that no one else has bought for them starts……

When I was pregnant with Mia, my Mum got together a basket of goodies for me I think she started collecting when I was 12 weeks. Baby grows, muslins, cream, baby wipes, baby nail scissors were all very helpful and well used. Mia’s Nonna also put together a basket for her with baby towels, clothes and baby bed linen. The baskets are still very useful 16 years on for storage! My Sister-in-Law, Auntie Wanna, gave us a baby book when I was pregnant with Rosie which in which I have all her scan photos in, keepsakes and have written down all her ‘firsts’ in.

Get Shopping…..

The Lion and The Bear shop has a beautiful new store in Lion & Lamb Yard, Farnham. Stocking a large range of baby clothes, toys and essentials. Steph says ” All our products are wrapped beautifully, free of charge with or without a gift box and we can also add a handwritten beautiful card if you’d like us to. “

Getting your crafty head on……

The girls have been lucky to have these made for them by Mama, Grandma, & Nonna. I treasure them.

A handmade gift that has had some thought put into it is always much loved, so if you want to get making Pinterest is a good start for ideas.

 

And The Gifts That Money Just Can Not Buy……..

Sleep – offer to pop over and enjoy baby cuddles while mum gets some well-earned sleep in between feeds

Cleaning- Empty their dishwasher, empty the bins, hoover (if everyone is up!)

Bring a dinner- A lasagne or shepherds pie……yum

Take baby out for a walk

Bring cake….new Mums need a sugary snack!

I hope this blog has given you some ideas about gifts….let me know what you think!

Take care

Lots of Love
