An arrival of a new baby boy in your family, circle of friends or at work probably means that some shopping needs be done. If the mother has a gift registry, purchasing a gift for the baby is much easier since you know what items she would like to receive. If there is no gift registry, personalized baby gifts for boys are a viable option. Even if the boy receives more than one blue blanket, the blue blanket you give him will be a little different from the rest because you had it personalized with his initials, full name or a character.
Here are three top gifts for baby boys to consider.
Bedding items are great gift options for babies. Since babies can have diaper accidents and spit up incidents, blankets can come in handy for emergency clean-up situations. Quilts, valences and mats are other bedding items that a baby cannot have too many of especially during the colder months. Not only can they be used in their crib, but they are also convenient for travel and play dates.
Keeping a baby’s room organized is not always an easy task. Since their clothes are tiny, their toys bulky and diapers plentiful, storage items as a gift will probably be appreciated. Toy chests, toy bins and bath time tubs are some storage essentials as well as diaper caddies, hampers and shelves. Additionally, babies do not outgrow storage items the way they outgrow clothes. As long as the baby continues to own toys, a toy bin will continue to be useful. Even something like the diaper caddy can double as a clothing holder when the child has become potty-trained.
If after browsing through the above mentioned gift suggestions for a baby boy, nothing stands out, there is always baby packages. The contents of baby packages, or baby gift baskets, will depend on its theme, but usually they will include at least one of every essential item. A sports-themed package for a boy may include a wagon plus a bib, rattle toy and box of wipes while a deluxe package may include a book, bib and wipes. Since gift baskets are pre-arranged, it takes a lot of guesswork out of the gift-giving equation.
The arrival of a baby boy is a joyous occasion, and you can help celebrate it with a great gift.
