First-time parents ooh and aah over everything for their baby: stuffed animals, cute onesies, diaper pails, baby socks, receiving blankets, and, yes, even a wipes warmer. It takes a certain amount of creativity to find the perfect gift for second- (or third- or fourth-) time parents who already have all of the baby’s essentials. If you think your friend with kids already has everything they need for baby, try giving them one of these thoughtful gifts they are sure to appreciate:
When our first baby was born after years of trying, our family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers shared our joy. They hosted baby showers for us, sent us flowers, and gave our daughter countless sentimental gifts after her arrival. Two years later, we were blessed with our second child - another daughter - yet her arrival did not receive the same fanfare as our first child.
Baby registries are wonderful tools for helping new parents stock their nursery with the infant essentials every growing family needs. But while registries include important items like car seats and travel systems, they tend to overlook gifts that can help a new mom relax, celebrate, and adjust to her new role in life. The next time you are shopping for a new or expectant mom, consider going off the registry and purchasing one of these thoughtful gifts instead.
