Where can you find the most delightful scent in the whole world? You don’t need to travel too far. It’s not an exotic tropical flower or Hummingbird Cake. You can’t pick it or eat it. Here’s what you do: Hold a happy baby face-forward. Lean in and breathe deeply into those little folds on its neck. Heavenly.
There’s something about a baby that makes even the grumpiest crumble. No matter how stressful the day or drive, arriving at a home where a baby resides will turn that frown upside down. So when family or friends announce the arrival of a new addition, it is no surprise that everyone wants to visit the baby, everyone wants to see the baby, everyone wants to hold the baby. And certainly, everyone wants to ogle and coo. And what’s the final instinct? To gift that baby. You may be miserly, but being thrifty suddenly has much less import when you’re considering a gift. You become…generous. To a fault, even.
You could go the traditional route, and present the parents with “safe” gifts like:
- Boppys (breast-feeding pillows)
- Baby carriers
- Baby changing Bags
- Baby jewellery
- Breast pumps
- Car seats
- Receiving blankets
- Subscriptions (parenting magazines)
We have some excellent advice for you: whether you’re shopping for a welcoming gift or for something more ceremonial/religious, you do not want to show up bearing the same gift others’ brought. The chances of you purchasing what the family already has or will soon have are high if you opt to go to your local baby shop and choose something from an end-cap, or something heavily promoted.
If you go to a chain shop, the chance for duplication goes up exponentially. Yes, it’s easy and yes, it’s familiar. But there are much better ways to spend your coin on a new baby. And you will be remembered in a good way. You will separate yourself from everyone else. Look for other avenues.
What’s our best recommendation? Buy baby gifts online at Baby Gift Box. It’s actually easier than trekking to the shop, because you can do everything from the comfort of your own computer, Notebook or laptop, at home or at the coffee shop.
Being set apart through a memorable gift can make you an honorary godparent of sorts (if you’re not the real thing) and your thoughtfulness will be noted. You cannot tell a new parent enough how beautiful their baby is or how wonderful their choice of baby name is – and what better way to gift them than to choose beautiful personalised baby gift boxes, like the ones available from Baby Gift Box.
A gorgeous, baby gift box is generous, but the quality of products is very high and surprisingly affordable, especially considering what you get to give. Choosing gifts online allows you to view each product carefully, and to consider all the specifics and details.
