Babies grow fast, which means they need a lot of clothes. When you’re deciding what to gift new parents, a gift card that helps them outfit their new baby with the latest fashions from Carter’s and OshKosh B’gosh, comfy onesies from The Children’s Place and cozy rompers from Baby Gap.

Toys and presents

Every little one needs toys to play with and help them develop essential skills. Plus, a good toy gives mom and dad a chance to relax while baby keeps himself entertained.

Treat them to a classic family film or stuffed toy from stores like Disney or popular toys from Buy Buy Baby. Or, get a Barnes & Noble gift card so they can treat themselves to the latest parenting guide or a collection of bedtime stories.

Something for mom and dad

If you’re wondering what to gift the new parents who seem all set for their new chapter, look for something that they’ve probably forgotten – something for themselves.

Try something from:

  • Groupon – they can choose from fun classes, days out and spa treatments, perfect for spending quality time together away from the chaos of parenthood.
  • Netflix – once the little one is tucked in, give the parents a chance to curl up on the sofa and enjoy a movie night together – if they can stay awake long enough!
  • Bath & Body Works – with a range of toiletries and home spa items, a gift card for Bath & Body Works is ideal for giving new parents some well-needed relaxation.

There are plenty of great gifts available for new parents, whether it’s essentials and fun toys or something for the parents themselves.
