Don’t forget about the new dads, they need gifts too!
Becoming a parent is a life changing, rewarding and fulfilling experience, yet it can also come with its challenges and adventures. It is a team effort and a full time job for the parents, which is a reminder to us to give New Dad’s just as much recognition as New Mums. These gift ideas for New Families will cater for their lack of sleep, extra energy required and give them a thoughtful reminder to take care of themselves too. With a few well planned and personal gifts, it can be a simple way of expressing your love and care towards the new family as they embark on their new adventure of parenthood.
Several New Parent gift ideas that can be considered include natural, organic foods and lifestyle products.. An eco-friendly travel mug and a BPA-free water bottle for the parents can be useful to keep them hydrated whether they are at home or on-the-go. A colourful reusable shopping bag can come handy for the numerous shopping trips, nappies and baby products that will be required. Stationary is a convenient and safe way for both parents to stay organised in this super busy period of their lives. A photo frame is a thoughtful way of cherishing the happy memory and experience. A scented candle or a soothing tea will create a calm and warmer atmosphere, especially in stressful situations. The new parents will appreciate these well thought of gifts, that will help them through this special new period in their life, as well as give them a few well-earned treats along the way.
Goodies for both parents can range from natural muesli for breakfast, coconut water to keep hydrated, hand moisturisers to soothe the skin and delicious chocolate and popcorn to treat themselves with.
The products for the two parents, could include a shopping bag, stationary, photo frame for the new family photo, scented candle, soothing tea, shaving cream for dad and a cotton scarf for mum.
