Part of the fun of a new baby is shopping for unigue gifts for parents to be. New parent gifts can be a blast to shop for – and the best presents will be both fun and useful. Items that are useful for both the parents and the new arrival are worth seeking out and will likely see the most use. A gift for new parents can be anything from a fun gadget to play with during feeding time to something to help them care for the new arrival.
A new arrival can turn even the most organized household upside down for a while. Giving a slow cooker as one of your new parent gifts allows the new mom – or dad—to assemble a meal in the morning and then forget about it all day. The finshed meal will be ready by dinner with no additional work required. Include a slow cooker recipe guide to round out the gift.
Splurge on a fine porcelain memento to celebrate baby’s first Christmas. Ornaments make excellent Christmas gifts for new parents; and you can begin a tradition of giving the new baby an ornament each year. A fine ornament is a luxury item and looks very impressive, but isn’t very expensive to purchase, making it a more practical option than it seems at first glance.
Choose a cute baby themed piggy bank, or select a traditional model that can grow with the child. This type of gift for new parents will grow as baby does, and will be useful for any family. A piggy bank can be used as room décor and to hold a child’s growing savings. Look for models featuring your favorite characters, or that will work well in the existing nursery décor.

This may not be the most fun gift for new parents, but it is surely one of the most practical.

This is one of the best gifts for new parents, particularly for couples expecting their first baby.
