Gift Ideas for New Parents And Their Baby

A new baby entering the world is cause for celebration, but if you've never been to a baby shower or had a baby recently it can be very tricky to know what to get as a gift. Giving a gift is a wonderful way to share your joy, especially if you cannot see the little one (or their parents) in person. From gifts that will last through the years as the baby grows up to presents that parents will be delighted to unwrap, there is something for everyone.

Gifts at My Baby & Me Ltd have been carefully selected with joy in mind for your new parents. We know how precious these early moments are, and that's why our selected gift list below covers everything you need to know for choosing a gift for a new baby and save you time searching. 

Personalised Keepsakes

A personalised present is the perfect gift for a new parent who wants to hold onto physical memories of their baby's growth!

Gifts such as the imprint of a little one's hand or foot holds a tangible memory for a sentimental parent. Good quality DIY impression kits include everything needed to make a beautiful mold at home (even for those not-so-crafty-parents). Impression kits come in all shapes and sizes, from small rounded frames to large photograph frames, or unframed - so there are plenty of options to suit your new parent's home. You can visit the gifts section of our website to see our entire impression kit selection.
