Shopping for a newborn is fun, like really. But often we get confused thinking about what exactly to buy! Well, lemme give you some awesome baby gift ideas, that are not the usual “baby clothing” stuff! Read this article and I’m sure it would change your thought on baby gifts forever.
All I want is to just save your frustration while searching for a baby gift. Let it be cute, unique and special! To make it easier, I’m including the links to the products. Also, almost all these products are available on Amazon.
If you are following me on Instagram, you would know that I am a great supporter of cloth diapering. Trust me these reusable diapers makes an amazing gift option for babies as these are not just environment-friendly, but also the best for the babies’ skin. These diapers don’t have harsh chemicals or gels that we see in disposable ones! Read about cloth diapering here if you have zero knowledge.
Our cloth diapering journey started with cover diapers from SuperBottoms and then we tried different types and brands of cloth diapers. I will do a separate post on it, but for now, lemme give you the links of the brands I love and those are Super Bottoms, Bumberry, Cloth Diaper Shop, and Bumpadum.
Well again, if you know me personally, you would know that I’m a babywearing enthusiast as well! The very first baby carrier I tried was a DIY wrap which I made with a saree by myself. that’s when I knew babywearing is not less than magic and baby carriers are a blessing! I then got my hands on two different Indian brands and a foreign brand. And I would prefer the Indian brands if the baby is gonna live in India, as these brands have used the fabric that fits best for the climate that we have in India.
I have written a lot of posts about babywearing. And I would want you to read this post before buying one for the little one. Well, my favourite baby carrier brand Soul Slings and I still own 4-5 Soul carriers.
Okay, I am not talking about the normals ones that available in the market! Most of us are unaware that many branded baby wipes contain toxic chemicals in it and are harmful for the baby’s skin! It is said that the ones with fragrances and preservatives are not supposed to come into contact with the baby’s skin. Homemade baby wipe solution and reusable wipes are definitely the best options. But many prefer to buy as it’s the most convenient way anyhow!
The one brand I introduce here is Mother Sparsh and it is 100% Indian. These wipes are not just hypoallergenic, dermatologically tested and PH balanced, but are 100% biodegradable as well.
Wet bags are usually used to store used and unused cloth diapers especially while travelling. But these super bags can be used even otherwise. These can be used to carry water bottles, milk bottles etc as it is designed for no wicking or leaking.
Most diaper brands sell these wet bags including SuperBottoms, Bumpadum and Cloth Diaper Shop.
What I mean here are the baby skincare products with no harmful chemicals. I started using a foreign brand for both my babies but later changed to the Indian brand that I now trust. Well, I am talking about Mama Earth and their products are made with 100% natural ingredients.
Swaddling is nothing but an age-old technique of wrapping the baby in a piece of cloth. Babies just love to be swaddle whatever their mood is! It make them feel safe and secure.
I have used normal cloth as well as swaddle blankets to swaddle my kiddos and we prefer the ones designed for the purpose – the swaddle blankets. You can get these from online stores like Amazon, FirstCry etc or from a local baby shop.
DIY Hand & Foot Casting Kit
This is my favourite of all! A DIY hand and feet casting kit was something I wanted to buy but I couldn’t, when my elder girl was a baby! It undoubtedly is the best-personalized gift ever! All you need is to search on Amazon and you would find a lot of options there.
Well, if you are a parent as well as a DIYer, I would probably ask you to make one for yourself with the less resources that are easily available. I will do a separate post on it, so do come back to my blog soon.
So, that’s it guys. Next time try gifting any of these products and let them tell you how useful these are. By the way if you are a parent, do not wait for someone to buy these for you. Go buy it for yourself and check these out. I’m sure you will love it.
