There are few life events more exciting than having a baby. It is certainly an occasion that warrants celebration and it is customary to buy a gift for close friends or family when their baby does arrive. When it comes to baby gifts, however, most people tend to stick to onesies, bibs, toys, etc. that are neither very personal nor very memorable. Here are some great ideas that not only will the new parents love, but will also stand out among the rest.
Baby clothes from the parents’ alma mater or favorite sports team
Parents will be shocked and pleasantly surprised when they open your gift to find a reminder of their time in university or a way for their child to rep their favorite team. The new parents will be so excited and anxious to introduce the world to the team or school’s newest fan!
Baby bouquet by Cookie Bouquets
Once a baby comes into the picture, life changes completely. This time in a parents’ life is all about their newborn. So, why not give them a gift that’s strictly for THEM! You can still wish them congratulations, but do so with a delicious bouquet of cookies that they can snack on during late night feedings or while running around doing one of the million things that being a new parent requires. They will definitely be thankful for this delicious treat!
A gift card to a great restaurant
New parents will undoubtedly be extremely busy and preoccupied with their child, however, every couple needs some time for themselves as well. Getting them a gift card to a restaurant will give the new mom and dad an excuse to get out of the house and go on a much needed and much deserved date night!
Your favorite book from when you were a child
We all have a book that we remember our parents reading to us at bedtime night after night. Pick up this book from your local bookstore and write a note on the title page sharing your memories about the book and why you loved it so much. Not only is this something very personal, it will also introduce the new baby to a book they may never have come across otherwise. Most importantly, it will hopefully begin to instill a love of reading in them as well!
Everyone loves cookies. We doubt you can think of a single person who doesn’t! Cookies are delicious, they’re a great snack or desert, they’re perfectly sized portions, and cookies just make people feel good. These are just a few of the reasons that they make such great gifts. Cookies are perfect to buy for anyone on any occasion and here are a few more reasons why you should look no further than a delicious box or bouquet of cookies the next time you’re on the hunt for the perfect gift:
There are so many varieties of cookies
One of the best things about cookies is the fact that there are so many varieties. This means that no matter what mood you’re in or no matter what you like, there’s really something for everyone. If you’re a fan of chocolate, well than the classic chocolate chip or the ultra-rich chocolate, chocolate chip are both perfect. If you like to combine sweet and salty, try a variety that combines nuts or pretzels. If you’re trying to keep it healthy, go for oatmeal raisin. If you’re all about cute decorations, then a sugar cookie with beautifully decorated icing. And, that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
Cookies make you feel good
Not only do cookies make you feel good when you eat them because they are so delicious, they also make you feel good because they will likely remind you of your childhood. We’re guessing that most people have memories of dipping cookies in milk at their kitchen table with their parents. This treat comes with a strong sense of nostalgia, which just gives you an overall good feeling when you eat them.
You can get a wide range of prices and sizes
Whether you’re trying to stick to a budget or you want to splurge, you can get cookies at just about every price range and in all different sizes. Maybe you want to buy a small gift for a friend to let them know you’re thinking of them, or maybe you want to celebrate a big occasion or milestone like a graduation, a new baby, or a wedding. There is a perfect cookie gift out there for just about any occasion and in all different price ranges.
They are portable
Another great thing about cookies is the fact that they are so portable. They’re easy to take with you to a party, they’re easy to send in the mail, and they’re easy to save if you can’t finish them all at once. This is another factor that makes cookies such a great gift, as they don’t come with any hassle. This makes it easy for you and for the person you’re giving the gift to.
Their designs will make you smileCookies come in all shapes, sizes, patterns, and colors. People tend to get very creative with their cookie designs and you can always find a cute cookie to make you and the person you’re giving a gift to smile. There are cookies with company logos, cookies decorated like fried eggs and bacon, cookies for sports fans, cookies for girly girls and everything in between. Whatever your interests are or whatever the occasion is that you’re looking for a gift for, you’re sure to be able to find a cookie that represents it.
