10 Tops Newborn Gifts for New Parents

Swaddles – Our ultra-soft bamboo swaddle blankets are a best seller and ideal for newborn gifts. Packaged as sets with a headwrap or beanie, swaddles are the perfect “I don’t know what to buy” gift for your new parent friends. Not only are they perfect for swaddling (duh) but also snuggling, nursing and covering a car seat! 

Onesies & Bodysuits – Given how many outfits parents may go through in any given day, you can never receive too many onesies! Unlike other outfit gifts that may be too fancy or designed for special occasions, a classic onesie or cute bodysuit is the perfect everyday newborn outfit parents will love.

Bath Towels – Hooded towels for bath time will be a useful gift parents can use with their babies over and over as they grow! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that it makes the cutest photo opp.

Mix & Match Bottoms – Snag a patterned bloomer set or cozy joggers to pair perfectly with a bodysuit! Combine several clothing pieces for outfits that mix and match, making parents’ lives much easier. Something that goes with everything? Yes please!

Pajama Sets – Thanks to our ultra-soft bamboo fabrics, a set of pajamas is also on the list of top newborn gifts for new parents. You can even gift holiday-themed pajamas for the whole family to match for Christmas morning! 

Pacifiers & Pacifier Clips – Our friends over at Ryan & Rose have pacifiers and pacifier clips that are perfect gifts to pair with a Posh Peanut swaddle blanket or new outfit. 

Hair Bows & Clips – Accessory items like velvet headbands, velvet hair clips or other hair accessories are the perfect stocking stuffers for newborns! They’re also great for mixing and matching with new newborn outfits.
