9 Thoughtful Presents for New Parents

Presents for New Parents

Babies are gifts and sources of joy. However, they are also a lot of work.

Most new parents have no idea what’s in store when they bring their baby home. After the glow of new parenthood fades, the challenges begin. Sleepless nights, colic, diaper rash, and the terror of doing the wrong thing can be highly stressful. They need as much love and support as their baby. 

These thoughtful presents designed for new parents can go a long way toward helping them weather the storm.  

1. Baby Carriers

Hands-free baby carriers are popular with new parents because they keep their babies close while doing chores or going for a walk. The little one can sit facing forward, facing mom or dad, or enjoying a piggyback ride. The material is generally breathable, padded, and comfortable for prolonged use.

Many carriers are adjustable for newborns to three years, making it an excellent gift. Some baby carriers include head and neck support, ensuring the baby’s safety and comfort until they can hold their head up. Parents can use well-constructed baby carriers for a long time, saving them money.

2. Food Subscription

Most new parents have very little thought, time, or energy for anything else but their babies for the first few months. You would do them a massive favor by gifting them a food subscription.

Some deliver fresh, pre-portioned ingredients to their front door to quickly knock out healthy meals. Others provide pre-cooked meals according to a set schedule based on their preferences. Generally, these food subscription services offer various options, including meat, vegan, family, calorie smart, diabetic, and pescatarian.

3. Baby Swing

A baby swing is a godsend for new parents as it can create a hands-free, safe space for the baby. Parents can keep an eye on them while cleaning the house or sitting down for a bit of a rest.

A swing offers new parents a respite from constant attendance while keeping their babies happy. Those with rocking motion options and overhead toys help comfort and entertain the little tykes for a long time.

4. Baby Monitor

New parents need alone time, by themselves or together, but get antsy when away from their bundle of joy. A video baby monitor can alleviate some of that worry.

Choose one with a high-definition 5-inch color monitor and Wi-Fi capability to go over the crib or a shelf. That way, parents can watch the baby wherever they are. Date night might be a bit less romantic but infinitely more relaxing.

5. High Chair

A high chair might be looking a bit ahead as a gift for new parents, but it is eminently practical. It is a popular gift that will see much use, especially one that is easily adjustable. If you can get one that reclines so a newborn can use it, even better!

6. Diffuser

New parents need to maintain their mental health through relaxation and exercise. However, they seldom get an opportunity for either.

An essential oil diffuser can help parents relax. It creates a spa-like atmosphere amidst all the chaos through aromatherapy. Choose diffusers that dispense essential oils that are safe for parents and newborns. These include lavender, chamomile Roman 3% in jojoba, and rose 3% in jojoba. However, you should know that some people are allergic to essential oils like jasmine, ylang-ylang, and bergamot.

7. Blender

Blenders are a practical gift for anyone, but especially for new parents. Gift them with a good quality blender, and you’ll be on their nice list. They can quickly make smoothies to keep them going and baby food for the little one with the push of a button. It also lasts for a long time, so it may still be around for the baby to be old enough to use it.

8.  Multicooker

How wonderful would it be not to stand over a stove to cook the day’s meals? A multicooker with various settings is a must-have for new parents.

Many multicooker brands are available, any one of which will allow tired parents to prepare meals without much effort. Multicookers often include a pressure cooker and slow-cook function, so it is the dealer’s choice. Parents can choose one-pot meals they can prep the day before, ready for eating at the right time. Conversely, they can whip something up in 20 minutes.

9. Robot Vacuum

Keeping the home neat and tidy might be a significant challenge for new parents. However, they can ensure the floor is clean if they have a robotic vacuum. These nifty gadgets take center stage in many funny pet videos, but they are truly useful and not just props. Parents can focus more on their babies than on the dust and dirt.

Some models are self-emptying, so that shaves a few precious minutes spent on cleaning they can use in relaxing. Robotic vacuums are also a source of amusement for pets and kids, so that’s a bonus.

Bonus: Digital Photo Frame

All the gift suggestions above are sensible and designed to help parents get through their day. However, there is room for sentiment.

If there is something that all new parents share, it is the urge to take pictures of their newborn. Some parents even hoard photos of ultrasound images of the baby in the womb. A digital photo frame allows parents to store all their pictures in one place and display them at the same time.

Some come with stand-alone SD cards for storage, while others connect to cloud storage through an app. In either case, you can be sure you’ll be first on oars with new parents with this thoughtful gift.  

Final Thoughts

Most people focus on the babies when choosing gifts for a baby shower or baptism. However, new parents need as much or more attention from friends and loved ones. These thoughtful gift suggestions can help them get through this happy but stressful time in one piece.
