The ABC's Of Baby Gifting
2016 Feb 17th
Shopping for baby gifts is fun and exciting! There are endless possibilities of what to get the precious bundle of joy. At the same time, it can be overwhelming choosing a gift for someone who hasn’t even yet taken their first step! Not sure what the proper etiquette is on what to gift, how to gift and when to gift? Here are some helpful tips that make baby gifting fun and easy.
What to Gift: When choosing a baby gift, there are several things to consider. What gender is the baby? How close are you to the parents? Traditional baby gifts come in pink or blue, but don’t be afraid of more modern gifts that are gender neutral featuring grey, white, or multicolour. Not every girl has to love pink! Depending on how well you know the parents, they might appreciate a gender neutral gift if it better suits their style.
An important thing to keep in mind when shopping for a baby gift is what the parents would want for their baby. For instance, products that are BPA free are an excellent indicator of safety and quality. Baby brands like Munchkin and OXO Tot are featured in several of our Baskits and are guaranteed BPA free!

How to Gift: Any new parent can tell you how hectic the first few weeks at home are with a newborn. If you don’t get an invitation to come over right away, consider sending a gift directly to the parent’s home. It’s a considerable way to show you're thinking of them and their new bundle of joy.
When to Gift: If you are going to meet the baby, you can bring a gift with you. Even if a couple months have gone by and you haven’t seen the parents or met the baby yet, sending a thoughtful gift will never be too late and the gesture will always be appreciated. Another thing to keep in mind when shopping for a baby is clothing size. Our baby Baskits contain clothing for 0-12 month old so there will be plenty of room for the little one to grow!
