Unique baby gift ideas

Kids and Teens

What do new parents want? One of the best ways to win over a new parent is to give them baby products that help them in day-to-day life. If you’re not sure what these things are, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with the top six new baby gift ideas.

Bouncer seat

When you ask new parents what they need most, chances are a bouncer seat will be at the top of their list – and for a good reason. They’re lightweight, compact, and, most importantly, comfortable. There’s a whole world out there that a baby can explore from their hangout spot – and best of all, they can do it in the comfort and safety of their own home.

Best of all, bouncer seats are usually made from non-toxic material and come in many fun colors.

Baby swing

Much like a bouncer seat, baby swings are an excellent way for your new bundle of joy to hit the pause button when they’re just not having the best of days. The good news is that you can buy baby toys online and have them delivered to the doorstep.

They come in different shapes and sizes, but most offer soothing swinging motions with music and jungle sounds to help your little one drift off into the land of nod. Baby swings are a popular choice amongst new parents, and for a good reason – but remember not to crank the swings up too high!

Slings and carriers

If you haven’t heard of these things before, they replace prams and pushchairs.

There are a few different types: the best for newborns is usually an all-in-one sling with a carrier, suited for little girls and boys. These are quick to put on, comfortable for mum or dad to wear, and best of all, the baby gets to be close to you – which they love.

Many sling carriers come in fun colors and designs, so if you’re looking for something that isn’t just another boring beige baby carrier, then these are a great option.

Baby shoes

All babies need shoes, but the problem is that their feet grow incredibly fast, and it can be challenging to find a decent pair of baby shoes. It may sound mad, but you don’t have to worry about buying a pair a size too big – your child’s feet will grow into them!

Baby food maker

A lot of parents turn up their noses at the idea of a baby food maker, but there’s no denying that these gadgets take all the hard work out of making your healthy puree.

All you have to do is chuck your ingredients into the pot and let it whiz around until it turns itself off – sounds easy enough? Well, it is.

One of the best things about baby food makers is they usually come with a timer, so you can put everything in before bed and have it ready to go when your little one wakes up.

Baby bouncers

Babies use baby bouncers from when the child is tiny – around four months-ish – right up until they’re close to crawling (and sometimes beyond).

The great thing about baby bouncers is that there are all kinds of different ones on the market, and you can usually find one that suits both your needs and the size of your baby.


New parents tend to buy more than they think they’ll need. A lot of the stuff on this list certainly falls into that category, but it’s all worth it for those little moments when your baby looks at you and smiles.
