A baby is a blessing to the family, and even to the relatives and friends, and one way to celebrate the new life is through giving them presents that are useful especially to a newborn infant and a first time mum.

Gifting a baby may not be that hard because I don’t see them making a fuss, since he is just a tiny baby, he would not be able to communicate if it’s a yay or a nay, but the parents might be the meticulous one, so we made sure that this listing have their seal of approval.

Even though he can’t read yet, it’s good to start him young when it comes to praying. Parents would love to read some short prayers to their little one to introduce faith to him even as an infant. As the baby grows up and starts to read, he can then use it as his prayer book for protection and blessings.


Nuby Soothing Mitten

It has a music box tune that plays music for 3 minutes, just have to wind it up, no need for batteries! Easy to clean with wipes or cloth

As I have mentioned earlier, gifting an infant is not a hard chore as they are still unable to express their likes and dislikes, but then again most gifts here would be piloted by the parents so it’s really a great idea to give them things that are handy and convenient. The item that I personally like is the hooded towel listed at number 6, it is simple but you’ll get a lot of use out of it, believe me! My son still uses his hooded towel from when he was a newborn up until now. It has maintained its softness and durability so I really got my money’s worth.

So until next time, ciao for now!
