Bringing an infant home from the hospital is like setting up a science experiment full of endless variables. Despite what gift registries say, there is no single set of supplies guaranteed to fill the needs of every newborn. New parents know they will need diapers, rash cream, bottles, pacifiers, clothes, and more. But they won’t know which brand, size, or style works for their child until they test each product. And that can get expensive. Get a new baby gift card so parents have the money to discover what makes their little one happy.
Below are some new baby gift ideas that are easy to make and fun to give:
Baby Basics. Take a picture of pregnant mom in all her glory and turn it into a personalized gift card. Add the words, “Momma knows best” to the gift card’s embossed message line. Deliver the new baby gift card with a few baby basics such as gentle bath wash and a soft wash cloth. Add a handwritten note to the card reminding new mom to trust her instincts when the baby arrives.
Diaper Dash. Though less glamorous than an infant ballet sleeper and less sentimental than a crocheted pair of booties, a new baby gift card for diapers will be significantly more useful. Upload a diaper-themed photo such as a picture of the newborn in diapers, a picture of you holding a stack of diapers, or a picture of mom-to-be when she was in diapers. Make your own gift card and write “Diaper Fund” on the card. Deliver the diaper gift card with a start pack of diapers, diaper wipes, or diaper rash crème.
Time Out. Treat the new parents to a moment of relaxation with a gift card that can be used to go to the movies, to a restaurant, or to a spa. As hard as it might be to leave the baby for a few hours, it can also feel rejuvenating to reconnect as people rather than just parents. Create a gift card with an image of the new family together. Write, “Time out for you” on the card. Deliver the new baby gift card with an offer to babysit.
If you don’t have a new baby photo of your own, select a new baby gift card design from our predesigned gallery. The gallery is full of gift cards created by our designers plus thousands of images submitted by photographers, artists, and designers who participate in the PicPaid program.
If you’re collecting money for a group baby shower gift, our Group Gift service makes it easy. Simply set up an account and let your friends know about it. They can log in, contribute as much as they want, and leave a personal message. When the goal or time limit is met, GiftCards.com will send the funded group gift card in a personalized greeting card straight to the recipient. Organizing a group gift has never been easier!
With discount gift cards, you don’t have to wait for a sale on diapers, clothing, or baby gear. Look at the gift cards available and shop where the savings take you. You can buy diapers with gift cards to ShopKo and Rite-Aid. Buy baby gear at Babies R Us, Toys R Us, and Target. And save on newborn clothing with The Children’s Place gift cards. Thanks to the rising costs of raising a child, parents need all the savings opportunities they can find. Using unwanted gift cards to create your own sale is a great way to ease the budget before and after baby arrives.
Baby showers started as gatherings for women share tips and information with the expectant mother. Gifts were not originally part of the festivities. Learn More
