If you want to give an awesome gift to a baby, why not try giving a time capsule, themed baby apparel, a customized kit of diaper changing essentials, or baby head wear.

Choosing a gift for babies can be fun, especially with the exciting variety of options that are available. Just remember to choose a gift that the baby’s parents can appreciate. Consider the parents’ lifestyle and general preferences, and add your own creativity and imagination to come up with a cool baby gift. Here are some ideas that may help:

Time capsule

First time parents would do anything to make the most out of their memories of parenthood. A time capsule for collecting various baby memorabilia would be a great gift for them. Find a roomy, airtight container that may be used for this purpose. You might also be able to find a fancy-looking, durable container. Be sure to include a note explaining what the gift is, set a future date for when the parents can open the container, or suggest an “unsealing” ceremony for the gift for one of the child’s future birthdays. The parents will surely enjoy gathering all sorts of souvenirs like photographs, DVDs, toys, letters, newspaper clippings, cards and anything that will help recollect the baby’s birthday. You can also add your own letter or a taped message for the baby for a more personal touch. All the knickknacks will be kept safely in the capsule and will help the parents reminisce the baby’s birthday in the future and show their older child what it was like when he or she was born.

Themed baby apparel

Even babies can make a fashion statement. There are many clothing sets for toddlers that are styled with a particular theme. These sets often include a bib, pants, a sweater or hats that are designed to make the wearer look like a rock star, cuddly animal or fairytale character. Choose clothing which you think the parents will like their baby to wear.

A customized kit of diaper changing essentials

Diaper changing is something that every parent will have to go through, so you will be doing them a favor by giving them a diaper-changing kit that they can use for this task. Add a quirky twist to the conventional kit by using unlikely containers like a hardware tool kit or a box customized with stickers or bright colors. Fill the kit with the usual diaper changing essentials like diapers, baby powder, rash creams and wipes, and then include unlikely but practical items for the parents like goggles, face masks, trash bags, air fresheners or an air purifying spray, hand sanitizer and a bottle of aspirin. Be sure to attach tags to each item with a personalized or humorous note explaining the use for each item.

Baby head wear

There are many baby head wear items that have unique designs like mullet wigs, pirate hats, halos, animal ears and tiaras. This gift idea is perfect for parents who are fond of dressing up their toddlers. Be sure to find a style which you think the parents will find amusing.

Baby gifts can be fun for both the child and parent, but whatever gift you choose, be sure it reflects your sentiments for the receiver.
