When a family member or friend is expecting a baby, you definitely want to come up with a newborn gift idea for the proud new parents. Whether it's a boy or a girl, all newborns will need lots of things to take good care of them. Some of the most common choices for a newborn gift idea include such items as diapers, wipes, bibs, bath towels, washcloths, and clothes. Clothes for newborns can range from onesies, pants, sleepers, nightgowns, and socks. Also, depending on the season, you can get a sun hat, shorts, swimsuit, sweatshirts, jackets, and gloves. All make a wonderful newborn gift idea, and will come in handy for the expecting parents. Because babies grow so fast, it is always good to have all types of clothes for every stage because you'll never know what you may need. No matter what type of clothes you buy newborns will go through a lot of them so you can never have too much.
Most newborn babies coming home from the hospital will either start in preemie or newborn sized clothing. Newly expecting parents are concerned with getting enough clothes to get them through the first few months and will register for or ask for smaller sized clothes. Often if they have a baby shower, they will get a lot of newborn clothes since this is what the baby will need first. Soon enough however, the baby will grow out of these clothes and the parents are then left to go out and buy bigger sizes. Within the first few months their weight will double and move up to either 0-3 months clothes size or 3-6 months clothes size, so it's a good idea to have bigger sizes ready. Your little one will grow quickly before your eyes and you'll soon find that the smaller sizes just don't fit anymore. A good newborn gift idea is to buy a range of clothes such as 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and 6-9 months, as this will allow something for the newborn to wear through at least the first six months.
Another good newborn gift idea is to take a laundry basket and fill it with anything from clothes, diapers, wipes, bibs, and baby detergent. You can also take a baby bath tub and fill that with towels, wash cloths, shampoo, baby wash, baby lotion, baby oil, baby powder, and a baby brush or comb. You could also throw in some playful toys even for the bath that the newborn will surely enjoy and will bring smiles to the new parent's faces as they play with their little one. This newborn baby idea gives a unique way to package and present your gift to the new parents with every part of your gift something the baby needs. You really can't go wrong with any one of these gift ideas that will all be useful and show your love and excitement for the new little bundle of joy on the way.
