54 Stylish and Useful Gifts for Newborns by Laura Lajiness Kaupke
So-sweet picks to celebrate that bundle of joy.
Gifts for newborns aren’t like other presents you’d give a friend or family member. While equally thoughtful, they’re infinitely more precious, but with practicality to soothe and nurture infants in their beginning stages of life.
The most fun place to start for baby essentials is undoubtedly newborn clothes. Nothing’s cuter than teensy rompers, footies, and itty-bitty knits. Equally darling and cozy? Receiving blankets, hooded bath towels, and extras like hats and socks to keep babes toasty warm. Sleep essentials are doubly prime for newborns (and their parents)—think swaddles, sleep sacks, and calming sound machines to whoosh away noise during naps and late-night feedings. Developmental extras and accessories to combat fuss also make great gifts, from bouncers and loungers to carriers and cushy mats for tummy time. (Pro tip: check the baby registry to ensure parents haven’t already checked them off their list.)
Toys, books, and playsets are all top of the list for newborns deserving of sweet yet functional gifts for playtime and beyond. And don’t forget newborn-friendly beauty products—babies require ultra-gentle formulas to soothe their fragile skin, from bathing essentials to lotions, oils, and balms. Keep scrolling for an edit of stylish and practical gift ideas for newborns, from clothes to toys to oh-so darling gift sets.
