Is someone close to you expecting a baby? It’s likely that they’ve already started shopping for the essentials, the must-haves, and the latest gadgets – especially if the little one is due to make his or her grand appearance very soon.
So, what else can you get a parent-to-be? Thankfully, we’ve prepared a guide to help you pick out a gift they’ll love. Read on…
The Small but Meaningful Gift
We know we shouldn’t utter the ‘C’ word in summer, but hear us out…
If the baby is expected to arrive over the festive period, we have the perfect gift – a Christmas bauble from our gorgeous collection.
For those who don’t want to blow the budget (or if the parents-to-be are distant relatives or old colleagues, for example), this makes a lovely but thoughtful gesture. Ideal when you just want to buy ‘a little bit of something’, this baby keepsake can be bought now ready to gift later.
We love our snowflake bauble and this cute Rudolph version. Plus. both can be personalised with the baby’s name.
Now do you forgive us for mentioning Christmas?!
The Gift They Can Cherish Forever
Their hospital bracelet, their first pair of hand-knitted booties, even their first dummy…where else can you store all their little keepsakes? A shoebox seems, well, a bit mediocre – doesn’t it?
Why not treat the parents-to-be to a gorgeous memory keepsake box, then? This woodland animal one comes in two sizes and is perfect for storing letters to their little one, small photos and any other trinkets and treasures they want to hang on to. Of course, it can be personalised with baby’s name too – as can all our wooden memory keepsake boxes.
There’s no reason, too, why this can’t be gifted to a mum or dad-to-be before the baby’s arrival. In the box, they can store everything from baby scan photos to the first sleepsuit they’ve purchased for little one.
The Quirky, Seasonal Gift
Know a mum or dad-to-be who just loves Halloween? Or maybe they can’t get enough of Christmas (there we go again, mentioning the ‘C’ word!). We have just the items – in the form of these quirky, seasonal baby grow/body suits.
Again, they can be personalised with baby’s name – and they also make a fun pregnancy announcement to your other half (if you’re expecting, that is). Just pop the baby grow in a gift bag and wait for their reaction as you spill the news.
We particularly love this cute, Halloween baby grow – just look at it! Or how about this Easter-themed one – it’s just perfect for a spring baby.
The Thoughtful Addition to Baby’s Nursery
If the mum or dad-to-be already has all the above in preparation for the arrival of their bundle of joy, why not buy them a small but thoughtful addition to baby’s nursery? We have plenty to choose from on the Love Lumi site, like this jungle animal wall hanging flag, this vintage-inspired baby hanging heart, or this engraved, wooden money box.
