Gifts Ideas for New Parents

Gifts Ideas for New Parents

Whether you’re expecting or adopting, bringing a new person home and into your family is such an exciting time. But it’s also when the hard work starts! Adjusting to new routines, to your new role, can be tough. Add sleepless night into the mix and even the simplest task can seem impossible. There will often be an endless stream of guests bringing gifts for the newest member of the family. However, the new parents are all too often over looked. Here are some great suggestions.


Who doesn’t love a hamper? A beautifully presented, treasure trove of gifts. Hampers make fantastic gifts and Tiny Human Hampers offer a great selection. They are a really inclusive company and don’t just cater for archetypal family. They understand that families come in all shapes and sizes.

They offer a beautiful range of  hampers for babies and parents. We particularly love the Tiny Human Tired Mama hamper, filled with:

‘Tired as a Mother’ Water Bottle (700ml BPA Free)
The Tired Mama Collection – Tired Mama Tribe T-shirt
Love Boo Mummy Bath Soak – 250ml
Batiste Dry Shampoo (200ml)
Nursem Hand Cream (75ml)
Nivea Caring Lip Balm
Border Classic Recipes Biscuits (135g)
Maltesers (110g)

Personalised Champagne

Welcoming a new person into the world is something to really celebrate. Nothing screams celebration better than a bottle of champagne. You might worry that people might think that not a lot of thought has gone into the gift. It’s easy to pop to your local supermarket and grab a bottle from the shelf but did you know that you can get personalised bottles of champagne?

Say It With Champers offer a selection of labels, for all occasions, that you can personalise with a message of your choice. You’ll even get the chance to see on screen what the label will look like before you order.

Cooked Meals

When you’re in the exhausting early days of parenthood, little could be more welcome than someone arriving on your doorstep with a lovely home cooked meal. If you’re a whizz in the kitchen and live nearby, then cooking up a few meals that can be put in the freezer and taken out when needed is a lovely, thoughtful gift.

For those of us that aren’t gifted with cooking skills or maybe don’t live near enough to visit in person, then there are other options. COOK make nutritious freezer meals. They have a fantastic box aimed at new parents – New Parents 7 Nights of Meals. They also offer new parents a 10% discount on their meals for 6 months.

I’d love to hear what you would have liked as a gift when you first became a parent?
