Special Ways To Be Creative On Giving Gifts To Newborn Babies

By Edie Mindell

The best way to welcome a newborn baby in the family other than gentle hugs and kisses is through showering him/her with baby gifts. But as to the kind of gifts to buy, making a decision becomes more difficult since there are too many options laid in front of us either by our own personal choices, choices of family and friends and myriads of offers from commercial establishments.

Internet shopping may appear easy although the same may pose some degree of disadvantage. Going to the mall directly would even lead to confusions. One might consider the discounts being given upon purchase or the possible preferences or likes that the buyer may have. Either way, it matters little.

What I would like to point out is that the means of buying whether through internet or going to supermarkets has less importance than giving a serious thought on WHAT to buy for the little ANGEL. Giving in to the lures of commercialism without giving due consideration to other important factors will surely cause disappointment on the part of the giver and the recipient (as if he can) I mean the angels family. If you agree with me (Im sure you do), please consider the following factors before you fill your shopping basket with goodies and gifts:

1. It is important that you as the buyer or the gift-giver knows the developmental needs and tasks that the infant has as of the moment. Remember that, in gift-giving, it is not just the appreciation one gets from the parents of the baby that counts but, rather the act of giving is for the benefit of the baby.

2. It is also important to make sure that the items you are buying are made of high quality materials and do not contain toxins that may compromise the baby’s health. Infants lungs are not yet well-developed and so with the sensory-motor processes thus, babies might suffocate with the kind of materials one would give him.

3. Toys for example are not meant only for fun but will introduce babies into various aspects of the world and hasten their learning processes through combination of fun and motivating strategies. One must also know what toys are suitable for boys and girls of different ages. Not to mention the fact that parents sometimes have expectations which the gift-giver must also respect.

4. Then of course, with the state of economy, it is important to buy a gift on a budget. Probably, the best way to describe it is choosing practical items that can be stimulating and healthful at the same time.

There are actually many ways to put together a nice and inexpensive gift. There are limitless ideas that you can make use of in keeping with your budget. Im not saying though that pampering the ANGEL with an expensive gift is PROHIBITED. Sharing the expense could be a strategy when your pocket is too deep.

For example, the cost for a good-quality stroller or crib as a gift for an officemates or a common friends baby which may be above ones personal budget can be co-shared with people from work or a group of friends. This set-up will cut down ones share on the big expense for the gift. And your group will be receiving unending thank yous from the grateful parents.

Also consider other practical ideas and practices which you have observed from other gift-givers. If you are a parent, it may help you to reminisce the days when your own baby was showered with gifts that you yourself loved and appreciated because those gifts brought sweet smiles and warm laughter from your ANGEL.

Remember this: CREATIVITY AND SENSITIVITY can make you a prized gift-giver.
