    Aden + Anais Burpy Bib

    Curators of the best baby registries know to add Aden + Anais Burpy Bibs to the list of must-haves. As burp cloths, these are both generously sized and absorbent, and when Baby’s old enough for a bib, they’re big enough to actually do the job of protecting clothes—front, back, and arms—and durable enough to hold up in the washing machine. Yes, a jauntily tied bandana bib looks cute on bébé, but there’s no way their mashed-avocado-covered hands are going to hit that target when they decide that wearing food is more fun than eating it. (Hi, 2-year-olds.)

    Owlet Dream Duo Camera & Sock

    Smart baby monitors abound, but what sets the Owlet apart is the camera’s accompanying sock; it’s basically an Apple Watch for infants. The sock monitors heart rate and blood oxygen level so parents can keep their cool during any new (read “terrifying”) sleep stage, like discovering their baby loves to sleep face-planted onto a mattress.

The Owlet even logs and summarizes its data, giving parents insight into their little one’s sleep habits and development. Peace of mind, gifted.

    Etta Loves x Keith Haring Reversible Sensory Strip

    It’s tempting to go all-in on the cute, kitschy kid stuff when it comes to baby gifts—mostly because that’s often your only option. But luckily, brands like Etta Love are creating baby-friendly toys that parents will love too. The Keith Haring collab is genius because the original art is high-contrast, making it a natural but totally unexpected sensory toy for babies. The Sensory Strip in particular would make a great gift. It’s sturdy enough to stand on its own but comes with ties so parents can hang it from a crib, a car seat, or anywhere their baby could enjoy some wide-eyed activity. Plus, it’ll grow older with them: One side is Haring’s black-and-white Baby for 0–4 months, and the other side is the multicolor Brazil for 5+ months.

a list of inexpensive and original gifts for parents

It is customary to share the joy of the birth of a baby with loved ones. If you are lucky enough to be in a narrow circle of those whom your parents entrusted to join the holiday, then you immediately begin to think how to repay such an honor. In other words, what to give for the birth of a child. Komsomolskaya Pravda comes to the aid of everyone who is tormented by a difficult question. The material collected ideas for unusual gifts.

Top 7 baby gift ideas

1. Practical present


When a child is born, it brings not only a lot of joy, but also an increase in expenses. Baby food, clothes, rattle toys and other little things. Therefore, on the birth of a child, many try to present a useful gift that will go into business

What we recommend to give

Diapers. This is what will definitely come in handy in large volumes. We assure you that your parents will appreciate it. Still, the costs of this important "accessory" in the early years are high. For those who do not want to give a naked package of diapers, we offer to arrange it in the form of a cake. You can buy ready-made ones, or you can create your own. You can also add a couple more tiers of baby food cans to it.

2. Taking care of your health

It is especially stressful for new parents to understand what is wrong with a child when he cries. Tummy ache, simple whim or fever? Heat is generally difficult to define. First, babies have higher temperatures. Secondly, how to keep a thermometer to an unconscious baby?

What we recommend as a gift

Non-contact thermometer. This is a device that measures the temperature in a couple of seconds in any part of the body. Some models lean against the forehead. Others can simply be pointed and, by means of safe infrared radiation, they read the heat at a distance of several centimeters. There are also special models aimed at children. They can measure the temperature of mixtures and bathing water.

3. For Safe Eating

Photo: Nick White,

When we care for babies, there are a lot of hygienic rules to follow. Handle nipples, bottles, iron diapers and sliders. After all, crumbs are especially vulnerable to bacteria and viruses.

What we recommend as a gift

Baby sterilizer. This is a device that disinfects bottles and pacifiers. There are electric models in which you put the dishes, close the lid and the device generates steam. The procedure takes about 20 minutes. When finished, a signal will sound. There are just boxes that can be put in a microwave oven - they are cheaper.

4. For the peace of mind of parents

Photo: Pixabay,

The first years a baby needs an eye and an eye. Babies may simply cry because they have lost contact with the parent. Older children begin to explore the world, run, try to climb and climb into dangerous places. But keeping a child in sight is not always possible. Sometimes you have to do household chores.

What we recommend as a present

Everyone knows about a baby monitor — a walkie-talkie that is always on and, in which case, broadcasts the baby's cry. But today, with the development of technology, baby monitor - a set of a camera that is installed in the room and a monitor to receive the signal. Its plus is that you can follow the grown-up children, who are just actively studying everything around.

5. Packing for a walk

Photo: Michael Weber,

During the first years of walking with a child, parents are forced to take a whole arsenal of things that may be needed at any time - a pair of nipples, a bottle of water, a bottle of formula, scarves, diapers, in general, a complete set.

What we recommend as a gift

Bag for mom. It is roomy and made of durable fabric. In addition, many are divided into compartments for "baby accessories", for example, compartments for bottles, medicines, etc. There are a lot of choices in stores now. Some look quite stylish, and not just like a duffel bag. Fashionistas will appreciate it.

6. To breathe easily


In recent years, the number of children with allergies has been growing. Many have breathing problems due to mucus accumulating in the nasopharynx. All this interferes with the proper development of the child. Many begin to breathe through their mouths, and this is wrong.

What we recommend as a present

As an idea for a present for the birth of a child, you can consider nasal aspirator. This is a portable device that pumps out purulent discharge from the nasal cavity. There are electronic and mechanical devices. The snot enters a special compartment that can be washed and disinfected.

7. For those who value moments


People used to be more sentimental. They cut off a lock of the child's hair and stored it. There were no smartphones with good cameras, so we went to a photo salon or ordered a professional with a camera. Today this is all a thing of the past. But you can still give emotions.

What we recommend as a gift

Plaster for modeling. Parents can mix the solution and leave an imprint of the baby's hand or foot on it. Some then hang the cast in a frame or paint it and make it a decorative element. Or you can just save it for a long memory and after many years get it out of the box and be touched.

How to choose a gift for the birth of a child

All gifts can be conditionally divided into two types. The first are practical, which will be useful to parents in caring for the baby. The second is emotional. For example, albums, photo frames, the same gypsum for a palm cast.

Not all parents can appreciate sentimental gifts. Some people just don't like or try to hide their emotions. But still, the idea of ​​​​such a gift for the birth of a child should not be abandoned. Maybe the parents just didn’t think about it, they already have enough worries. And they will have a conditional photo album "The first year" of life, you see, they will fill it.

Feel free to ask what to give. The family will have a lot of expenses: a crib, a stroller, diapers, mixtures, toys, an arena. There is not enough money for everything. Ask directly what young parents lack. Or you can ask their relatives if you are afraid that they will dissuade from a gift for the birth of a child.

Don't give too personal gifts. An example would be a breast pump. Suddenly the family is not going to use breastfeeding at all. And with such a gift, you seem to give advice. It will also be bad manners to present slimming underwear to mom. If it is really necessary, the woman herself will choose.

Giving a set of baby formula is also not a good idea. On the one hand, there are not so many types of them in stores. On the other hand, the child may be allergic to unfamiliar food. Therefore, this is the thing that parents choose together with the pediatrician.

ideas for sleeping, at home, playing, walking

When I first gave birth to my son, my relatives asked the same questions: height, weight, name and what to give.

It was easy to deal with the first three questions, but the last one puzzled me: we bought everything we needed in advance, but then I didn’t know anything about useful excesses for young parents.

Two years have passed, and now it is much easier for me to answer this question. Here is a list of things that would definitely make me happy in the past.

Choose what the gift will be useful for:

  • For walking
  • For sleeping
  • For home
  • For games
  • For memory
  • Sets for mom
  • Walking

    Toy with sound sensor

    How much: 2199 R
    Where to buy: Mothercare

    Babies don't always cry from hunger or pain. Sometimes a child just needs to make sure that mom is nearby and, therefore, everything is in order, he is safe and you can sleep on.

    But in reality, mothers still have to go away. In such a situation, a comforter will help: this is the name of a toy that is kept nearby during feeding so that it is saturated with a smell familiar to the child. Modern comforters are able to imitate the presence of the mother even more thoroughly: the sound sensor reacts to the crying of the child and automatically turns on the recording of the heartbeat - a sound that babies get used to even in the womb.

    Horseshoe pillow

    How much: from 820 R

    I’ll tell you from experience: it’s not easy to get used to breastfeeding right away, especially if you’re doing it for the first time. A specially shaped pillow helps the baby and mother to take a comfortable position and enjoy the process. Well, or at least not suffer due to the fact that the back is numb in an unusual position, and the hands are tired of holding the child on weight.

    While the child is not sitting and holding his head, it is difficult to bathe him: you have to constantly stand over the bath, bending over. The mattress will solve this problem: it keeps afloat a child weighing up to 8 kg and parents can straighten up and free their hands.

    The mattress has alternatives: hammocks that are attached to the sides of the tub, and sponge loungers.


    What to buy in Ikea for children

    Hanging toys can be found in any children's goods store, but I recommend paying attention to small workshops: instead of bright colors, flickering details and plastics, they prefer delicate tones, clear shapes and natural materials.

    You can order an individual mobile from private craftsmen: for example, choose airplanes for a boy or unicorns for a girl. Do not forget about the bracket: not all cribs are equipped with them, so it is better to ask in advance if there is a place to hang the toy.

    Not every baby is ready to wait quietly in the crib if the mother has gone to the kitchen. In such a situation, a deck chair will save you - a lightweight design that can be carried from room to room.

    In it, the child will see his mother and not worry that he was left alone, and parents will be able to free their hands for other things.

On the other, there are pictures with a bright accent that stimulate color perception.

    A small camera that is glued to a child's clothes is needed in order to take pictures of parents. She does not shoot all the time, but reacts to movement in the frame: as soon as the parents come to the crib, the gadget will activate and record a twenty-second video.

    After that, the videos are uploaded to the cloud storage, and the program itself distributes them into folders. The device can recognize the same people and recognize emotions - for example, it can put videos with dad, videos with mom and videos with smiles separately.


    Newborn set

    How much: from 750 R

    There are usually several universal items for newborns in the boxes: a diaper, a teether, a rattle, a baby hat, booties or a pacifier holder.

    The only difference is in the number of things and colors: gifts for girls are traditionally collected in pink or pastel colors, and for boys - in blue. However, it is not necessary to adhere to traditions, there are also universal sets: with things of either color or neutral shades.
