Is this the new parents first baby or do they already have other children? If this is the first child then the new parents will need a practical gift. But what is a practical gift? Diapers, sleepers, nightgowns, baby wipes, baby booties, hooded towels and washcloths, lightweight blankets or burp cloths. These are some of the many practical gifts to buy that it doesn’t matter how many they receive they will need them all. If the new parents already have a child then a gift such as a keepsake plate with the babies name and birth date on it or picture frames or any personalized keepsake gift would be greatly appreciated are great gift giving ideas.
