Baby Gifts are fun to shop for.

Here’s a handy checklist to make these gift ideas adorable and efficient at the same time.

There’s an obvious temptation to pile on when you’re shopping for baby and who could blame a new Mommy or Daddy for wanting to see their little ones well dressed, stylish and comfortable? You might even be looking for baby shower gifts for a friend or relative’s new arrival. Regardless of the reason for purchasing these gifts, here are a few pointers you can use as benchmarks to steer you in the right direction.

Aim for Simplicity

Remember who you’re shopping for. Sometimes you need to make quick changes, where a diaper clutch or diaper bag will come in handy. A soft baby blanket or a cozy wrap will make baby feel warm and comfortable.

Babies love their toys, a special soft toy or blankie can become the “can’t go anywhere without it” favourite. Every parent knows what the loss of a special toy means – maybe you should get two, just in case.

Rethink Colour

Baby gifts can be traditional in some ways, but of course there’s room to think outside the box when it comes to colour. All little girls don’t need to be covered in pink anymore and little boys don’t need to be saddled exclusively in blue. Innovative patterns and prints can jog your creativity when it comes to Baby Gift Ideas that cross traditional gender lines.
