Though buying a gift for a new parent can be a lovely way to show you care, it can be tough to decide what new parents really need. And, with so many different types of gifts on the market, it can be hard to know where to start.

The 6 Best Gift Hampers For New Parents

With that in mind, we’ve put together a list of some of the best gift hampers for new parents, perfect for anyone looking for something a little different.

New Parents Gifts: The Basics

New baby gifts are a common tradition, but new parents can sometimes be left without the luxury.

It’s important to remember that, as much as they may be focused on their new bundle of joy, the parents are going to need some TLC too.

One nice way to show you care is with a hamper full of goodies – perfect for helping them relax and feel pampered during those early weeks and months.

Some basics to consider when choosing your gifts for a new parent include:

  • What might they have missed out on during pregnancy? If they haven’t been able to enjoy their usual cup of tea, favourite snacks or glass of wine, put together a hamper with all their favourites.
  • Could you offer your presence too? A gift hamper is a lovely way to show you care, but sometimes what new parents need most is a break. If you have the capacity, you could also offer to babysit when the time is right so that they can get out for a nice meal, or just catch up on some sleep!

One recent survey by Action for Children found that the majority (68 percent) felt “cut off” from friends, colleagues, and family after the birth of a child, so the best gift could simply be making sure you're there to offer an ear and a shoulder to cry on when needed. 

New parents' gifts don't have to be about the baby, nor do they have to be expensive or extravagant, but a little thoughtfulness goes a long way. So, next time you're stuck for what to buy a new parent, remember it's the thought that counts!
