7 Inexpensive But Unique Baby Gifts

A diaper cake. A diaper cake is a great way to gift a useful item and stay in budget. Even a small box or bag of diapers can be rolled and tied together using inexpensive ribbon to create a cute gift. Tuck in a few things like baby washcloths, baby wash or pacifiers to give it a bit more color and personality.

A baby hygiene and emergency kit. Many new moms find themselves without some basic baby tools for those things like clipping nails, cleaning noses and ears or even reducing a fever. Use a travel hygiene bag and stuff simple items into each pouch that will work for an easy to keep together baby hygiene and emergency kit.

You may wish to include a few of the following items:

  • Vitamin D

  • Gripe water

  • Infant fever reducer (acetaminophen or ibuprofen)

  • Syringe for cleaning noses

  • Thermometer (forehead or rectal for accuracy in an infant)

  • Nail clippers or nail file

  • Infant saline nasal spray for congestion

A lullaby “Mixtape”. Those late night feedings often need something soothing to help relax a baby and mother. While a play list is more common in this day and age, a hand made CD including some of your favorite lullaby choices is one of the most fun and unique baby gifts to give. You can even look for great classical or instrumental albums and purchase for this purpose.

A coupon to come do chores for the new parent. A new mom and dad are definitely going to need a bit of help in the early days. This could include an offer to clean their home before or after the baby arrives. It may be offering up some freezer meals, or even babysitting older children so they can sleep. Find out what needs they have and offer a coupon to the new parents to use when they need it most.

Gift cards for restaurants that deliver to their home. This may not seem like one of the most unique baby gifts, but it is a great choice that will be appreciated. Sometimes the very idea of cooking is overwhelming, not to mention trying to load an infant into a car and drive to buy dinner. Gift cards for take out that will deliver are an excellent way to help a new parent. They are especially great for those moms who are facing a c-section at birth and may be stuck at home longer than most due to healing. Or you could gift a pre-made meal like the one in the picture above. Perhaps a homemade soup mix or two full of beans, lentils and spices that the new parents can just add water to.

A womb sound bear. This gift is invaluable in early days to help a baby fall asleep easier. While more expensive than others on this list, it is still relatively low-cost and a great choice as one of the best unique baby gifts. These animals house a recorder that plays the sounds made inside the womb. This soothing noise is comforting to a newborn and can help lull them back to sleep.

Custom framed birth announcement. If the baby has already arrived, a custom framed birth announcement is easy to create on your computer and can be framed inexpensively. You only need the details of their birth, a piece of card stock, a frame and a program like PicMonkey or Canva to make this. To make this an an even more unique baby gifts idea, you can create the birth announcement and include the baby name meaning. Try to match to the nursery colors for a great option to gift to the new parents.

These are some great inexpensive but unique baby gifts ideas that are easy to fit into any budget. Gender neutral and easy to accomplish, these ideas are sure to make it easy for you to send a gift for any new baby announcement you receive.
