Gifts for New Baby


Babies, babies everywhere!  Spring is in the air, and it seems that many family and friends are celebrating with little bundles of joy!  I suppose it was 9 months in the making, but in the last few months there’s been a lot of babies and there’s still a few more to come.  I’ve been busy making a few presents for the little ones, and with the help of Pampers, I was able to put an extra special package together for one of my cousins that just had a baby boy.

I took part in the Ding Dong Diaper Ditch Movement.  I dropped of a little package for my cousin and their new bundle and left if there for them to find it.  I later received a text saying they received their package and how much they enjoyed it (especially the personalized touch of a camo blankie).  So what do you give a family with a new baby?

  • Diapers of course!  Even a cloth diapering family will use disposables once in a while.
  • Wipes.  With blow outs, spit ups and messes all around parents will go through a zillion wipes with a baby in the house.
  • Parenting Books.  There will always be times when we’re not sure as a parent, having a quick and easy reference is a must.
  • Clothing.  Babies are quick to grown out of clothes and it’s sometimes nice to wear something that your older sibling hasn’t worn.

Pampers Ding Dong

I loved dropping this off on their doorstep and I also loved the personal touch by making the camo blanket for them.  It took a number of hours but with each stitch (made with love) I thought of the little baby to be, just a few short months younger than my little girl.

In case you’re wondering…. the camo blanket is one big crochet granny square.

  1. I am a sucker for baby clothes! I love shopping for them, so I tend to give them as a shower gift! They are just so darn cute! My best friend just found out she’s pregnant, and I would love to win this for her! Thanks for the chance! 🙂

  2. Bringing up Bebe, and then a bunch of practical stuff – diapers, baby Tylenol, breastfeeding supplies….

  3. The last gift I bought for a newborn was diapers and Burt Bee’s Baby products in a gift basket. For the new Mummy…a spa gift certificate and flowers and Home Depot gift card for new Daddy…I didn’t really know what to gift the Dad but I didn’t want to leave him out 🙂

  4. I usually give some sort of sleeper(s) and a couple little toys. I am horrible at estimating seasonal clothing & sizes.

  5. I usually buy some cute outfits as gifts. I just bought baby gifts for my cousin’s new baby atBurlintgon Coat Factory this weekend. I found some really cute outfits and they were at a great discount. I love when it looks like I spent much more money than I actually have.
