Buy the happy couple a Moses basket and fill it with all the things a new baby might require. Clothes,

over. Include items for the parents as well as they are often forgotten at this happy time.

Baby Gifts - Photo Album
Give the couple a photo album in which to place all those photos they have taken with the new digital camera.
You don't want to have to get the computer out every time you wish to boast about the baby.
A keep sake of the first day the baby was born and these also make ideal baby gifts that will be interesting
later. When the child is older they will be able to look through the papers to see what happened in the world on
the day they were born.
Purchase a digital camera so that the parents are able to take plenty of photos as the baby grows.
Flowers and Champagne
Why not treat the happy couple to a bouquet of pink or blue flowers and a bottle of champagne to wet the baby's
head? Buy a small gift for the baby such as a photo frame. You could suggest they keep the champagne for a special
occasion if the mother is breast feeding.
Purchase a photo frame or a number of them so that the baby's photo may be placed in it. If you buy more than
one then the couple will be able to use them to show the baby changing over the first year. Photographs that you
have taken and placed in a special frame make ideal baby gifts for later.
You might like to buy the new baby some soft toys. Check that they meet the standard required for this age
group. If it is for a slightly older child make sure you explain this to the parents when giving it.
Supply the couple with an empty keep sake box so they can create their own with all of baby gifts they have
received. You may wish to fill one yourself with items that represent the year and the day the baby was born. Items
could include coins, newspapers, books, the number one album etc.
Set of Coins
Purchase a set of coins minted in the year of the birth. Baby gifts such as these may even increase in value as
the child grows.
Buy a locket for the mother to put a photo and a piece of the baby's hair in. This is a lovely keep sake that
can be passed on to the child when they come of age or get married.
Baby Casting Kit
With this kit the parents will be able to cast the baby's feet and/or their hands and turn them into high
quality stone. Most kits contain enough material to make three statuettes at different stages of infancy.
Hand and Foot Print Kit
Purchase a kit to make an impression of the baby's feet and hands you will be able to repeat this as many times
as you like throughout their childhood. Keep the impressions in a keepsake box.
Treat the mother to a basket of her favorite toiletries. After all she is the one who has done all the work.
Baby ClothesPurchase baby clothes in varying sizes as the babies soon grow out of the first size. Think
about the time of year the child is going to wear the clothing and choose accordingly.
Get the baby into the reading habit early by starting them on a classic library. These books could include
nursery rhymes, short stories and fairy tales. There is nothing like a good adventure to get a child interested in
