Your friend just had a baby? Chances are, you’ve been so distracted by all the awww-worthy photos that you need help with gift ideas so you don’t have to visit the new arrival empty-handed.
The family has already given the new parents lots of baby stuff. So what baby gifts do you get for parents who have everything?
Alternative gifts for new parents
If she’s already got her nursery set up, why not get something to match it? Has she got a cute mobile or baby memories book? At Baby Vegas, you can find these items, plus playsets, learning blocks, attachable activity toys, soft books, musical tins, wooden activity toys, projectors, and sound machines.
Cool nappy and bottle bags
If there’s one item that new mums use every day, it’s the nappy bag. Every time they leave the house, it’s with them. Make sure she’s got a stylish bag and buy her one that’s cute. From large nappy bags with loads of space to small travelling clutches, we’ve got all sizes and styles. We can also organise a matching backpack for bubba. Browse our nappy bags.
Spend the day with her
What new mums miss the most is just being able to walk out the door – for a walk, a massage, a haircut, coffee with the girls. One of the best things you can give your bestie is your time. Leave the afternoon free and head over to her house with supplies. Chocolate, magazines, movies, and cheese. Every girl loves cheese, right? Order lunch and enjoy each other’s company while bubba naps.
Home-cooked meals for a week
New parents rarely have time to sleep, let alone eat. Stock up your friend’s fridge with nutritious, freezer-friendly meals like soups, pies, lasagne, and casseroles. The first week is the hardest. With guests coming and going, food is the last thing new parents think of. You’ll be a lifesaver on those long days where they’re too tired to cook. You could also do the same with a house cleaner! Why not hire a ‘mother maid’ for your friend for a week?
