Do you have a baby in your life? Maybe not your own, but a new niece or nephew? Maybe your bestie just had a baby and you’re too far away to celebrate in person? Any of this sounding like you? Me too! Everyone that I know is having baby after baby after baby and of course we live SO far from them. My sister recently gave birth to my little niece and living so far away has made it challenging. Like, I see a ton of photos, but don’t get to give her all of my in real life love. The next best thing? …. a care package! Not just for baby, but for my poor sleep deprived sister as well.
Putting together a care package like this is a lot simpler than you’d expect. Baby gifts aren’t hard to buy. My go-to baby gift is ALWAYS an outfit, bibs or blankets, a toy, some baby bath products (JOHNSON’S® is my go-to brand and has been since my kids were babies. They have over 90% naturally derived ingredients and THAT is so important when it comes to baby’s skin), and then whatever just looks fun, or something personalized for baby. (In this case, I’d included a hand-me down baby outfit of MY daughter’s to pass to my niece). Then I like to throw in something for the parent(s). One time I threw in a coffee can, and some coffee drinking goodies because I knew the new parents were coffee lovers. In this one, however, I threw in some (late) birthday gifts for her because while I love her and her babies, I really stink at remembering to mail things out. Haha. Oops!
For the JOHNSON’S® baby products, I headed to my local Safeway and stocked up there on a few of my personal favorite things (things my kids loved, needed, etc etc). And if you purchase $40 of participating baby products, you get $5 back! JOHNSON’S® is 100% gentle, and free of parabens, and phthalates. Being a mom of three older kids has it’s benefits – I have all the knowledge of what worked for us, what we loved, what we didn’t, etc etc and I love getting to share that information/advice/whatever you want to call it with my siblings and my friends that are just starting their parenting journeys.
Not only is JOHNSON’S the # 1 choice of Hospitals, it is now more gentle than ever. In addition to that, JOHNSON’S products are dye free, and sulfate free! Simpler, gentler products that 9 out of 10 parents would recommend. And they now come with a pump top making it easier for mom or dad to utilize when he or she has full hands!
Is there a go-to that you have when it comes to gift giving for babies or new parents?
