Gift Ideas For The New BabyGift Ideas For The New Baby

When it comes to choosing just the right gift for a new baby boy or girl, especially a gift that leaves a lasting impression, your choices are abundant. With a little creativity and research, you'll be able to find an attractive gift that the new parents will be happy to receive ... and one that you'll be proud to give. Babies tend to be easy and fun to buy for, especially since so many specialty boutiques and internet shops are dedicated solely to the new baby. Your gift can be traditional or creative, inexpensive or extravagant.

Silver baby gifts tend to be of the traditional variety and since everyone has at least one cherished, keepsake silver baby gift of their own, they don't seem to ever diminish in popularity. Always in style, a unique silver gift, whether sterling silver, (92.5% by weight), or silver plate will always make a charming gift. Perhaps the most popular silver baby gift would be the classic baby rattle. Choose from the classic dumbbell design, which can be elaborately decorated or classically simple, to designs that incorporate rings, hearts, bunnies, stars and moons, even Winnie the Pooh. Teething rings can be just as decorative and remain quite popular as well. Choices include nursery rhyme designs, quaint bunny themes or the classic engravable variety that can be personalized with a monogram or special message. The classic silver picture frame, especially the engravable variety is another fine choice. Any of these options would be sure to make the new parents smile and more importantly, in the case of rattles and rings, leave baby happy and entertained.

Educational baby gifts continue to increase in popularity, especially since multiple studies have shown the importance of stimulating the baby's developing brain, particularly before the age of three. Due to this, educational baby gift items have exploded in recent years and your choices are varied. More traditional choices include the classic wooden or bright colored fabric building blocks, puzzles, stacking toys and award winning developmental books. A more progressive choice would be the gift of music to stimulate that part of the baby's brain that relates to math.

Decorative items, including furniture, accessories and art for the new baby nursery are always a welcome gift. If the baby is the couple's first, their needs might include a crib, changing table or other furniture items common to the baby's nursery. More interesting choices can include personalized gifts such as canvas wall hangings, growth charts, framed birth records, painted step stools, personalized ceramics and framed animal art. If you're feeling creative and really want your gift to stand out, find a local artist to produce one of a kind personalized art for the nursery.

Finally, gift baskets continue to be very popular choices for the new baby, especially when giving a group gift, since many are quite extravagant. Popular baskets for little boys and girls include baby bath themed baskets that include rubber ducks, pacifiers, fancy soaps, luxury monogrammed towels and onesies. Another popular themed basket would be the nursery rhyme basket, complete with story book, plush stuffed animals and matching bib and booties.

Choose your baby gift with care, while keeping in mind the personalities of the parents. However, with any of the the above choices, your gift is sure to be a hit.
