Verywell / Sabrina Jiang

Welcoming a new baby into the world is a joyful occasion. Giving a newborn baby gift to parents or caregivers is a wonderful way to show your excitement about the new little one’s arrival. And if you’re a parent, there’s no reason you can’t celebrate your baby’s arrival and other special occasions with keepsakes or something special to pamper yourself or your partner during this time.

Reviewed & Approved

The WoodilyToys Wooden Name Puzzle is a thoughtful and useful gift because it can be personalized with your baby’s name. For a gift to help with developmental milestones, we recommend the Lovevery Play Gym Activity Gym and Play Mat.

If you’re struggling to come up with newborn baby gift ideas or need a place to start, think about what kind of gift you want to give: Are you going for something practical that can be used once the baby is born? Something that will come in handy as they grow? A sentimental keepsake? There are plenty of options for each type of gift. Additionally, you can never go wrong with a gift that’s useful for both the baby and their parents or caregivers. 

We considered design, ease of cleaning, material, value, and toy safety when reviewing products. Here are the best newborn baby gifts to celebrate the newest little one in your life.

Little kids will love seeing their name in puzzle form and older kids can enjoy using the thoughtful gift as decorative art in their room. Starting from the newborn stage, this sturdy wooden name puzzle can be a lifetime keepsake.

Pros
  • Suitable for many ages

  • BPA- and phthalate-free

  • Dishwasher safe

Cons
  • Comes with only four hygiene filters

Whether they’ve got a seasonal cold or something worse, kiddos are bound to get sick from time to time. This nasal aspirator is a unique solution for helping clear out a little one’s stuffy nose. After squirting some saline to loosen up mucus, the caregiver should gently place the nasal tube on the outside of the baby's nostril, suck the snot out, and put the device on the top rack of the dishwasher for easy cleaning. (And don’t worry, the hygiene filter blocks the germs from going into the adult’s mouth). Plus, the NoseFrida can be used from birth up to 9 years old—which is a little longer than necessary, but it’s good to know you’ll be able to try it on toddlers.

The parabens-free sunscreen is SPF 50 and dries clear, so it can be applied right before an outdoor adventure without worry.

Dr. Brown's Deluxe Baby Bottle Warmer

Pros
  • Automatic shut-off and timer features

  • Audio and visual signals

  • Memory function

Cons
  • Cord must be plugged in

We like this bottle warmer for heating up breast milk and formula because it has a lot of handy features, but not so many bells and whistles that it’s confusing to use. The warmer will give audio and visual alerts when the bottle has reached the right temperature, while the automatic shut-off function ensures that the bottle won’t overheat in case a caregiver can’t get to it right away. It also comes with 12 pre-programmed settings to make heating bottles a breeze and a memory function that instructs the warmer to repeat the most recent selection.

  • Great for travel

  • Adjustable volume control

  • Cordless

Cons
  • Requires frequent battery replacement

Parents who like to shush their little one to sleep can save themselves some time (and dry mouths) with this shushing machine, which uses real human shushing noises to lull the baby to sleep. The portable cordless design makes it great for families on the go, while the adjustable volume control helps put the baby to sleep without bothering the rest of the house. The shusher requires two AA batteries, which could be a nice addition to a newborn gift so parents will have some spares on hand.

What to Look for When Buying Gifts for Newborns

Age Range

When you’re out shopping for a newborn gift, keep the baby’s age in mind to help you decide what will be the right product to purchase. Are you looking for a gift that can be used from day one or are you looking for a present that can be kept for the years to come? Once you figure out your preferred age range, your shopping trip will be much easier. As you shop for a newborn or arrival gift, keep the baby’s safety in mind and make sure the toy is age-appropriate, safe to use, and hasn’t been recalled.

Usefulness

During those newborn months, babies receive a ton of stuff, but sometimes those items aren’t of use until several months down the road. Parents and caregivers do appreciate gifts that can be helpful from the day the baby is born. Of course, babies will need stuff in the future, too, so you can take that route as long as you take size and season into account. Additionally, gift baskets are an extra useful (and often pretty) option for supplying everything a baby (or their caregivers) might need.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you need to bring a gift when visiting a newborn baby?

    Though bringing a gift when meeting a newborn baby isn’t a requirement, it’s a nice gesture of support for the baby’s parents or caregivers. Whether it’s night feedings or postpartum recovery, taking care of a newborn is a time-consuming and sometimes stressful job, so a baby gift is a nice way to help parents during a busy time. Plus, newborns need a lot of stuff, which can get pricey for just one family’s budget.

  • What should you spend on newborn baby gifts?

    High-quality newborn baby gifts will vary in price depending on the item, but generally, you can expect to pay between $20 and $150. Cheaper gifts are a great way to welcome a new little one while on a budget, though they may not be as durable. Pricier items can be a big help to the new parents, but some may not be worth the extra money.
