New parents will love these helpful and thoughtful gifts that will simplify their life so they can spend more time loving on their newborn. Anything that makes the postpartum period a little easier, helps them get more sleep and allows them to get quality time (either alone, with each other or with their new baby) is a guaranteed win.
If your giftees are relying on coffee (or tea) to keep them going through sleepless nights and early mornings, they’ll love a gift basket with their favorite coffee or gift card to their local coffee shop.
Ask if there’s a particular necessity that would make life easier if they had doubles (or triples) of. Examples include their favorite zip up or velcro swaddle…the only pacifier or bottle the baby will accept…the only sound machine that gets them sleeping, etc.
Their whole world might currently be revolving around their newborn, but eventually they’ll want/need to reconnect with each other, too. Make it easier for them to go out to dinner or a movie by gifting them a gift card (and the promise to babysit, if possible!).
It goes without saying that parents to a newborn would love to have a few meals taken care of (especially if they have kids in the house!).
I might be a little biased here but gifting a newborn photography session is one of the best things you can do for new parents! This time is fleeting and they’ll love to have updated photos with their new member of the family.
