This post contains affiliate links. Read full disclosure here.

I have always loved buying baby gifts even before I had my own baby. I loved checking out all the tiny person clothes and buying cute outfits for my friends to dress their new little babies in. Clothes was always my go to gift when buying baby presents and on having my own baby I received practically a year’s worth of clothes for my own little man in gifts which was great considering how fast he seems to grow! I did receive some more unique presents though which I really appreciated and before having my own baby would never even thought of buying as a baby gift.

    1. Congratulations! You are probably better prepared than I was before my baby but there was just so many things I never even thought I needed until he was here! Exciting times ahead!


  1. We had a Sofia giraffe and my son liked it a lot! Sadly it got dropped by little hands when we were on vacation. 😦 Sofia the giraffe now lives in Estes Park!

  2. I think the best thing we ever did was asking for all the diapers. I got so many that I didn’t have to buy any until my second child was almost 2! But I do also have a soft spot for those adorable hooded towels!!

  4. I love the box idea! Anything personalized I think is a great touch. Though to be honest I usually get something for the mom at baby showers!

  5. I love the idea of memory boxes and photo albums because babies change so quickly and it’s a fun way to remember all the milestones and for the child to later see what they were like as a baby. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the feedback. Yes I love the first year photo frame but I am really bad at actually printing out photos, instead they are all stuck on my phone!


  8. In NEXT they sell baby boxes with the year on. I have one each for my daughters and keep all their little baby keepsakes in it. It’s the best baby gift I had as it has lasted so well and always cut one now for mummies to be.

  9. Nappy cake. Immediately useful and you’re not creating clutter or imposing your personal tastes. Or a simple silver picture frame or photo album. Or baby’s first NS Premium Bond.
