Do you have a friend who is giving birth to her first child soon? If so, you probably want to get her an unforgettable gift to let her know you care about her and wish her well. Look at these four suggestions for one of the best baby gifts for a friend who is expecting.
Four Best Baby Gifts for Your Friend Who is Expecting
Artwork for the Nursery
Chances are, your friend has a theme for her baby’s nursery. Maybe she has a theme centering around a storybook character or a cartoon character she loves. Perhaps she has a simple color theme that gives a soothing touch to the nursery. One gift idea is to get a piece of artwork that flows with the theme of her nursery. For example, if she has decorated around a classic storybook character, get a unique print of that character and put it in a decorative frame. Or, if she has a color theme, get a cute piece of artwork that contains shades of the color she has throughout the nursery.
A Unique Piece of Clothing
Does your friend love a particular sport? If so, why not get her a piece of baby sports gear that features her favorite team? Just picture how surprised and pleased she will be when she opens your gift to find a colorful hat, onesie or shirt displaying the colors of her favorite sports team! She is sure to get a thrill from your unique gift.
A Classic Storybook
Perhaps your friend has mentioned that she loves a particular classic children’s story. Maybe she is into the stories of Beatrix Potter or loves Dr. Seuss. If this is the case, find a beautiful edition of her favorite storybook to give to her. She can read it to her baby in the nursery while rocking him or her to sleep. When the baby grows out of the story, the storybook you gave her will become a treasured keepsake.
A Memory Album
A baby’s first words, first steps and first favorite foods are just a few of the things that most new moms like to keep track of. Why not get your friend a memory album that makes it easy to record all of the first experiences of her child? A colorful, well-designed memory album is something your friend can treasure and use throughout the first year of her baby’s life. Take some time to find an album that gives your friend plenty of space to write down her thoughts about her child.
Finally, giving your friend a thoughtful gift at this special time in her life lets her know you are thinking about her and wishing her all the best.
