New parents have a lifetime of sleepless nights, endless worries, and possible financial ruin ahead of them, so we can’t think of a group of people more deserving of presents! But what’s the best gift to give to a new mom and dad?
Gifts for the baby are cool, but what do the parents themselves need to help them deal with mountains of laundry with only two hours of sleep in the last week? They need some gifts to celebrate their selfless act of creating a new life that looks just like them!
Check out these thoughtful gifts to send to a new parent—because the baby isn’t the only one who’s going to need holding and rocking.
Listen, new parents aren’t leaving the house anytime soon, and there’s no way they’re dealing with anything but elastic-banded pants while caring for an infant. Buy them some comfy clothes, such as pajamas, joggers, or leggings. It’s not like they’re going to have time to do laundry, so help your friends out by adding to their arsenal of loungewear!
If they can’t bother to wear pants with fasteners, do you think they’ve got time to clean? They don’t! Hire a cleaning service to pop in and clean their home. Or buy them a robotic vacuum for a gift that keeps on giving. Do you know how hard it is to push a vacuum while holding a baby? We’re not sure either, but it seems really hard.
A spa trip seems right up their alley! Give them some time to relax with a gift card to a spa where they can get a massage, facial, pedicure, or just take a nap on the massage table if they feel like it. They get whatever they want! They created a life!
Take-Out and Delivery
No one is wearing “hard” pants in that house, and they’re also not whipping up three-course dinners every night. But they deserve one, so send them gift cards for a delivery service or take-out from their favorite restaurant.
Also, don’t forget about dessert! Buy cookies online from us at MidnighTreats, and have some vegan treats delivered to their doorstep. We might be biased, being cookie-makers ourselves, but we think cookies are the best of all the thoughtful gifts to send to a new parent!
