“Newborn” parents are usually given so many things that they would ever need for their baby.

Of course, each present for their little one is valued, but sometimes the excess of infant fundamentals can be overpowering.

First-time moms and dads may appreciate a funny mustache pacifier or a simple but practical tote bag, but if you’re a friend to inexperienced parents, once in awhile you need to get them something that is not only for their little one.

We’ve chosen 15 thoughtful gifts for you that can be much more useful for new or expectant parents’ well-being than another toy or infant cover (frankly speaking, there is a cute one on our list).

Choose, get, enjoy!

We guarantee: you and your donee will be completely happy!
