The Ultimate Gifts for Baby: All You Need to Know
Welcoming a new baby into the world or celebrating a major event in their life is an exciting time. The amount of baby gifts available can be overwhelming, so we've put together this blog to help you find the perfect present. One major detail that we want to point out (from being parents ourselves), is that baby gifts should be both practical and made with high-quality in mind. Another stuffed animal or cheaply made onesie is not what we would suggest. With all that in mind, we have put together a list of possible gifts that will make you a baby’s (and parent’s) favorite person:
Most people’s go-to choice for a baby shower or birthday present is a nice outfit; something that is comfortable and soft, while still being fashionable. Parenting is expensive as is, so providing them with more clothing items will always be beneficial. The best thing to look for is durability, quality of fabric, and the ability to be easily washed.
You should also make sure that the garments are no hassle, as babies tend to squirm around when getting dressed. Our Joggers are a great example of this; made with 100% cotton, the lightweight garment is comfortable, and easy to slip on in a rush.
When it comes to small babies, many people assume their skin is already smooth. While it’s true that babies tend to possess relatively strong, and healthy new skin cells, it is important to remain diligent with skincare. Essential oils and butters, such as shea, mango butter, and aloe vera gel, are made to fully hydrate the skin.
Our Organic Body Butter combines these ingredients to create the ultimate blend of vitamins. And to top it all off, it’s made for all ages and all skin types.
Do you know who drools a lot? Well, babies in general, of course. How can parents keep their babies looking fashionable while staying clean? With a handmade bib from Buddha Babe! The traditional bib is made to prevent drool from getting on or under a child’s clothes. And when your little one’s bib is made with care, it works better in the long run.
We’d recommend something with style; a bib that speaks to a kid’s or parent’s personality. Does this baby’s mother enjoy tie-dye? Or maybe the father is really into superheroes. No matter what unique style you get, our shop offers bibs with crazy absorbent and safe materials. A gift like that is a fantastic way to tell someone you care.
Blankets make for a very heartfelt present, as they cater to a child’s sleep cycle. You can probably recall the nightmares you’d have during your kindergarten days. Monsters under your bed, anyone? We can all remember the absolute horror when we saw something that looked like a pair of yellow eyes underneath our bed, and how we would just wrap ourselves in a nice, warm blanket as we slept.
Blankies are something that can either make or break a kid’s sleeping experience. And it becomes daunting when you remember that everyone’s body is different.
It’s no secret that small children and babies have sensitive skin, and for that reason, you should be wary of the fabric your gift is made from. Many cheaply made blankets may look good at face value, though when it’s used for sleeping, it provides an itchy, rough, uncomfortable experience.
What you want is something made from plush materials. The best blankets come in the fluffy, soft variety.
The first couple of months is always a nerve wracking experience for all parents. Trying to adjust to a new routine and getting the hang of all things sleep related can be a challenge. And, as if that wasn’t enough, there are also worries about providing your baby with adequate care to keep them healthy and happy.
A Gift for Mom (or Dad)
Up until this point, we have talked about all the options for buying the perfect baby gift. Let's not forget about mom and dad! While it is a wonderful experience, having a baby can be a stressful time. Little sleep, new routines, and maybe some crying thrown in. Thankfully, we offer a wide range of home and wellness products that can help new parents to relax and unwind.
Finding a new baby gift should be as fun and exciting as celebrating the new bundle of joy. Hopefully, this guide has helped you in your quest for the perfect gift. Still struggling to find something? Reach out and let us know how we can help!
