Baby shower gifts usually end up being mostly for the baby, but the parents get nothing. While many of the gifts below are used for the baby, they will definitely make parents’ lives easier and most of them have been made with parents in mind.
Pillow Spray to Promote Better Sleep
One of the biggest problems new parents face is a lack of sleep. That cannot be entirely avoided, but when they do find a rare opportunity to get some rest, they should be able to take full advantage. This spray, with its blend of soothing lavender, chamomile and vetiver scents, is sure to help them relax into a deep sleep quickly.
Convenient and Affordable Home Cleaning Service
Nobody likes to live in a filthy house, but new parents are often stuck with one. They rarely have time to clean and when they do, they do not have the energy. It is much better for them and their baby for the parents to take every opportunity to catch up on sleep. Amazon’s home cleaning services are easy to schedule, affordable, and priced up front so you always know what you’re getting into.
Soft, Comfortable Crib Sheets
Brooklinen has taken the bedding world by storm with their high-quality, affordable sheets. Adults have been falling in love with them for a few years now, and they have finally come out with a line of sheets for our babies. Brooklittles come in fun prints and are made with the same attention to
quality and detail as their adult sheets.
While you are likely already familiar with the charms of Amazon Prime, you may not realize just how useful it can be for new parents. A Prime membership can save them countless runs to CVS, Walmart or Target. It also gives them access to Prime Video and their original content, which is perfect for late night feedings. You can give a three-month gift membership or pay for a full year. If they already have Prime, your gift card can be transferred as a credit on their account, so it still saves them money.
This shockingly realistic blanket looks just like an actual tortilla. The baby swaddled in it is going to look just like a cute little burrito. This is definitely a gift for the parents- the baby will not know it looks like a burrito, and it will not care. The parents will love it, though.
Portable Lounger to Keep the Baby Secure
For parents who do not want to deal with the hassle of a swaddling blanket at all, this lounger is the ideal gift. It keeps the baby comforted and feeling swaddled, and it also keeps them in place. Put the baby in the lounger and set it on the couch. There is no danger of the baby rolling off and getting hurt, and the parents can go about their chores and daily tasks.
The concept is similar to the lounger above, but this one is much less expensive. It will provide the same amount of comfort for the baby, while giving Mom and Dad the time and ability to do things that cannot be done while holding a baby.
Meal Kit Delivery Service
Eating well is crucial for new parents. They are already sleep-deprived, which can weaken the body and immune system. The mother may be breastfeeding, which means whatever she eats, the baby eats. Unfortunately, it is very difficult for new parents to find the time to plan meals, shop and cook. Junk food and fast food become staples. A meal kit delivery service sends all the ingredients they need in the right amounts and with instructions to make delicious, healthy meals at home. They make real, healthy food more convenient than fast food.
Portable Safety Harness
This harness straps your baby into any chair, so they will not slip and fall out. It does not elevate them like a high chair does, but it makes any chair into one that is safe for a baby. Ideal for outings when they are not sure if the restaurant they are going to has high chairs or not.
These clever boxes are the best way to store and transport food for lunches and snacks. Gift them now and the parents can use them for their own lunches or to carry snacks for the baby. In just a few short years, they will be able to use them for the kid’s school lunches, too. They will last forever, and are BPA-free.
