8 Best Gifts to Give Expecting Parents

A special couple in your life is expecting and congratulations are in order. Show the expecting parents how excited you are about the upcoming arrival of a new baby by giving a creative gift. Check out some of our top gift choices for new moms and dads.

1. Memory Book

Expecting parents love to live in the moment but these memories are often fleeting. Consider gifting a memory book where the new parents can insert photos and jot down special moments during baby’s first year.

2. Grocery Delivery Service

Many new parents don’t have the time or energy to grocery shop after their new bundle arrives. Help keep their fridge stocked with healthy options by getting everything on their grocery list through an online service like Amazon Fresh or Instacart. You could also give a gift card so that they can order grocery delivery themselves.

3. Baby Monitor

Advancements in technology have revolutionized the baby monitor industry. Today, new parents can confidently watch their newborns sleep peacefully from nearly any location using a Wi-Fi connection. Modern baby monitors offer a wide range of innovative features, such as two-way talk, night vision, remote thermometer, and much more.

4. Embroidered Blanket

Some of the best gifts for expecting parents are personalized. Choose a soft baby blanket, such as one lined with Sherpa, and have the baby’s name or initials professionally embroidered on the fabric.

5. Baby Carrier

It can be hard to get things done around the house while swaddling an infant. With a baby carrier, new moms and dads can have their hands free while keeping baby close. Today, baby carriers can be found in designs that are practical, comfortable, and stylish.

6. Reading Tablet

Once baby arrives, mom will need plenty of time to rest and recover. Consider gifting a reading tablet, such as a Kindle Paperwhite, that will allow her to read and relax as the baby naps. This e-reader has a built-in adjustable light for indoor and outdoor reading, and a single battery charge can last weeks.

7. Subscription Box

Subscription boxes provide a fun monthly surprise and there is no shortage of great options for expecting parents. Options like ‘Oh Baby’ boxes are filled with pregnancy and postpartum lifestyle goodies that are specifically tailored to the expecting parents’ due date.
