Parenting is incredibly rewarding, but it’s also challenging, especially for new parents. It takes a lot of energy, commitment, and patience to deal with the new adjustments and sleepless nights as they learn to take care of their baby. New parents invest their hearts, souls, money, and all peaceful evenings into their tiny humans. So, the upcoming baby shower or holiday is a perfect occasion for you to show them some love with a beautiful gift.
Although there are tonnes of great gifts for new mums and dads, below I’ll share with you my three suggestions that are sure to light up any new parent’s day!
A Wall Plaque with the Baby’s Name
Help new mommas and poppas decorate their little one’s nursery with some trendy and charming acrylic names. They’re stylish, inexpensive, and highly customisable. You can pick from a variety of fonts, colours, and sizes, from tiny wall signs to giant statement pieces. Name plaques are popular with many mums and dads all around Australia.
They’re a great way to personalise a nursery, giving a unique and creative touch to the walls. Acrylic laser cut names give off a cosy feeling and instill ownership in the kids as they grow older. You can mount them on walls or set them upright on flat surfaces depending on how they’re designed.
Why Are Acrylic Name Plaques So Popular?
In Australian homes and bedrooms, signs with acrylic name letters are becoming a common sight. While more expensive versions are starting to emerge in upscale décor magazines, inexpensive ones are appearing all around department shops. They’re among the most widespread products for home décor and are in high demand as birthday presents. Because of their adaptability and creative design, they make for eye-catching pieces in any house or setting.
Customised name plaques are available in a range of other materials, such as acrylic, glass, metal, and wood. However, acrylic names offer the most benefits out of all of these materials. They’re sturdy, durable, and shatter-proof which makes them a great alternative to glass. They also have far better water resistance than wood, which makes them suitable for outdoor décor as well.
Irresistible and Comfortable Rompers
Although acrylic signs are gorgeous décor pieces, some of you might want to go the practical route. The list of baby essentials for extra-prepared parents is long, so I wouldn’t recommend browsing for hours through extensive online guides. I’ll share with you one of the most popular practical presents for any new parent.
Check out these stylish and cosy baby rompers made from soft cotton and cotton blend materials. They come in different sizes, from newborn to toddler, and have a variety of adorable designs. If you’re tired of seeing the same old neutral baby bodysuits everywhere, opt for a whimsical design like the hoodie unicorn romper!
What Makes Baby Bodysuits the Best Gifts?
Baby rompers are great baby shower gifts for many reasons:
-They’re practical: Baby bodysuits never go out of style, since they simplify diaper changes and go well with shorts, jeans, and slacks. They’re suitable for a variety of occasions, from sleeping and playing to family parties and photoshoots;
-They’re affordable: Bodysuits are reasonably priced and fit into any budget. As a result, you can either purchase them as single costumes, or a pack of bodysuits with different colours and patterns. Whatever you decide, you’ll make the new parents happy while still having money left over to get them gifts for the upcoming holidays;
-Available in different designs: Baby bodysuits come in a variety of styles. There are thermal and heavy cotton types for fall and winter, and light cotton styles for spring and summer that you can pair with skirts and shorts;
-You often see them in baby registries: Baby shower invitations typically include registry information – and rompers are a common registry item. There’s a low chance of them being taken off the list, so you won’t experience any returns or disappointment if you choose them as a gift;
-Less stress when deciding on a gift: Some people get ideas easily, while others experience pressure when choosing gifts for new parents. By selecting a few adorable rompers, you’ll save yourself from worry and pressure.
Safe Playing Toys
My last gift suggestion for new mums and dads is age-appropriate baby toys. This might seem like an obvious gift, however, shopping for baby toys is a difficult and lengthy process. You’ll take a lot of concerns off their shoulders by getting the right toys for their little ones.
While playtime offers a lot of fun for babies and toddlers, it’s crucial to put safety before fun. Make sure you avoid anything with small parts or magnets, as they can be a choking hazard. Always read the label and age recommendations, and be on the lookout for toys with sharp edges.
