When buying for “birth”days to welcome new babies, you can go a few different ways.
You can buy something useful for looking after the baby now – clothing, bedding, equipment etc to make life easier for the new parents because the baby really won't care at this stage. Clothing is often presented as cute and clever gifts in the shape of bouquets, nappy cakes or part of a baby gift basket.
You can buy something that the baby will grow into all too quickly – either clothing or cot toys and rattles meant for older babies.
Or, you can buy a keepsake or heirloom gift to commemorate the occasion and appreciated in years to come.
If the baby has older siblings, it is often a good idea if someone buys them something so they are not too left out.
