The­mat­ic gifts

Gifts for discharge from the hospital

The birth of a child is always a joy­ful and long-await­ed event. Not only close rel­a­tives, but also friends rush to con­grat­u­late moth­er and baby. The best gift ideas for such a spe­cial occa­sion are col­lect­ed in this arti­cle.

What to give a sister or girlfriend?

It is very impor­tant to think over a gift for dis­charge from the hos­pi­tal in advance. It will be great if the pre­sent­ed things are use­ful to both moth­er and baby. Hov­er, if you want to please your girl­friend or sis­ter first of all, then you can use the fol­low­ing list of use­ful things for the new­ly-made mom:

  • Cer­tifi­cate for spa, llness, fit­ness or yoga. Such a present is per­fect for an active woman who is used to tak­ing care of her­self. After child­birth, many women may expe­ri­ence prob­lems with skin tone, as ll as being overight, so such a gift will come in handy. It is bet­ter to pur­chase a cer­tifi­cate that is not tied to a spe­cif­ic date and time. Thus, a friend or sis­ter can safe­ly dis­pose of it at a con­ve­nient time for her, even if there is a baby.
  • Radio or video babysit­ter. This thing is extreme­ly use­ful for the par­ents of the baby and great­ly sim­pli­fies the care of the baby. Hov­er, this tech­ni­cal tool most often belongs to the cat­e­go­ry for which it is a pity for a young moth­er to spend mon­ey. There­fore, the radio nan­ny will be a won­der­ful prac­ti­cal gift. Due to the fact that good mod­els are not cheap, it is usu­al­ly cus­tom­ary to col­lect mon­ey for such a present from sev­er­al friends or rel­a­tives.

  • Bot­tle ster­il­iz­er with heat­ing func­tion. Such a gift will become rel­e­vant if the moth­er has lit­tle or no milk. Then this device will facil­i­tate the feed­ing of the baby with the mix­ture. The con­ve­nience of the ster­il­iz­er is espe­cial­ly impor­tant with manda­to­ry night feed­ings, which can be very exhaust­ing for the moth­er at first. There­fore, hav­ing made a choice in favor of this gift, you should be ready to hear words of grat­i­tude and rave reviews from a rel­a­tive or girl­friend more than once.

  • car seat. Such a gift is unlike­ly to suit a friend, due to the high cost, but it is quite pos­si­ble to give this irre­place­able thing to a sis­ter or oth­er rel­a­tive. Now almost every fam­i­ly has a car, and many women dri­ve very ll them­selves. The 0+ car seat will make it eas­i­er for the moth­er to vis­it the clin­ic and oth­er places with the baby, and also make trav­el safe for the lit­tle per­son.

If the choice of a gift is too com­pli­cat­ed, then you can give mon­ey in a beau­ti­ful gift enve­lope. It’s always a win-win. Mom her­self will be able to spend them on the right thing and will be grate­ful for this oppor­tu­ni­ty.

Gift ideas for newborns

The most pop­u­lar as a present on the occa­sion of the birth of a baby, of course, is cloth­ing. As a rule, it is always giv­en a lot, because chil­dren grow very quick­ly in the first year of life. If you real­ly want to give exact­ly things, then you should con­sid­er the fol­low­ing nuances.

  • Do not buy a lot of one-dimen­sion­al clothes of the same size. The best solu­tion would be to buy sev­er­al body­suits, slips and t‑shirts of the small­est size 56 and sev­er­al pieces for growth. Many chil­dren grow by 4–5 cm in the first month of life, and clothes will sim­ply become small in a month.
  • Give pref­er­ence to nat­ur­al fab­rics. The ide­al solu­tion would be cot­ton and soft kni­tar. Baby skin is very sen­si­tive, so syn­thet­ics can cause seri­ous irri­ta­tion.
  • When choos­ing clothes for a baby, you should give pref­er­ence to but­tons, not but­tons. This will save not only time for dress­ing and undress­ing the child, but also the nerves of the moth­er. In addi­tion, the slips should have a com­fort­able bot­tom that allows you to change the dia­per with­out tak­ing off your clothes entire­ly.
  • All dec­o­ra­tive ele­ments must be firm­ly sewn on and not have sharp details that could injure the baby. It is bet­ter if the decor is also tex­tile or ther­mal.

Prac­ti­cal gifts for a baby will not only please the moth­er, but will also great­ly sim­pli­fy life. With care for the health and ll-being of the baby, you can give the fol­low­ing presents.

Humidifier

With the birth of a baby, spe­cial require­ments are imposed on the micro­cli­mate in the apart­ment. A com­fort­able lev­el of humid­i­ty, espe­cial­ly in win­ter, is dif­fi­cult to achieve due to heat­ing. Dry­ness in the room can cause the baby to feel unll, as ll as fre­quent colds. There­fore, every moth­er will appre­ci­ate such a gift.

It is bet­ter to give pref­er­ence to ultra­son­ic mod­els, as they are silent, and some of them allow you to addi­tion­al­ly aro­m­a­tize the room with essen­tial oils.

Bath set

Most chil­dren’s stores offer ready-made kits for hygiene pro­ce­dures in the bath­room. Hov­er, it may turn out that it will be cheap­er to col­lect the nec­es­sary things on your own, and the qual­i­ty of the items will be bet­ter. Such a set may con­tain:

  • large ter­ry tol with a “tri­an­gle”;
  • 2 small tols;
  • a set of toys for bathing;
  • ther­mome­ter for water;
  • hypoal­ler­genic baby bath prod­ucts (gel, sham­poo, soap, baby wash).

Baby blanket-envelope

A great and prac­ti­cal gift, espe­cial­ly for win­ter babies. In cool ather, some­times you don’t want to pull out the stroller for a 20-minute stay out­side with your baby. Then the enve­lope will be a great way out:

  • the baby can be quick­ly col­lect­ed for a walk and then also quick­ly undressed;
  • there is no risk of catch­ing a cold in the enve­lope, as it is reli­ably pro­tect­ed from wind and cold.

In addi­tion to the enve­lope, you can pur­chase a warm slip that mom will ar under the enve­lope.

Developing mat

Such a gift will not be use­ful in the first months of a baby’s life, but it will be appre­ci­at­ed by the moth­er at 4–5 months of age. It is at this age that the child spends a lot of time lying on his stom­ach, and a rug with a bright design will per­fect­ly devel­op sen­so­ry skills, stim­u­late the motor and cog­ni­tive activ­i­ty of the baby. Excel­lent rugs are made by Tiny Love and Fish­er Price.

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, the main dif­fer­ence beten a gift for a new­born girl and a boy is the col­or scheme. The girl will suit all shades of pink, the boy — blue and blue.

DIY gift option

Some­times you want to please a new moth­er with some­thing unusu­al. Then the orig­i­nal sur­prise will be what you can do with your own hands. It is also not for­bid­den to pur­chase cute and use­ful lit­tle things from hand­made mas­ters.

You can make the fol­low­ing pre­sen­ta­tions your­self.

  • Cake or oth­er fig­urines from dia­pers. On the Inter­net you can find mas­ter class­es that describe in detail how to make a snail, a bear and even a motor­cy­cle from these hygiene items. Such a gift will be not only beau­ti­ful and orig­i­nal, but also use­ful, since dia­pers in the first months of a baby’s life are the main “con­sum­able” mate­r­i­al.
  • Pic­ture-embroi­dery with the met­ric of the baby. The gift can­not be pre­pared in advance, but only after the birth of the child. The pic­ture usu­al­ly indi­cates height, ight, time and date of birth. You can also embroi­der the name of the city in which the baby was born. Usu­al­ly, the met­ric is sup­ple­ment­ed with a suit­able image. The col­or scheme is per­formed in clas­sic shades (blue for a boy and pink for a girl).
  • Knit­ted booties and plaid. From such gifts always breathe warmth, they are espe­cial­ly dear­ly loved by close rel­a­tives. It is impor­tant to use yarn that does not con­tain nat­ur­al wool, is not capa­ble of caus­ing skin irri­ta­tion and aller­gies. Ide­al for knit­ting from acrylic.
  • Pho­to album in scrap­book­ing style. A sim­i­lar thing, if there is no expe­ri­ence in self-pro­duc­tion, it is bet­ter to pur­chase from expe­ri­enced craftswomen. Hand­made pho­to albums usu­al­ly con­tain a large num­ber of addi­tion­al sec­tions and pock­ets where a moth­er can store the first curl, tags from the hos­pi­tal and oth­er lit­tle things dear to the heart.

Choos­ing a gift for dis­charge from the hos­pi­tal is a respon­si­ble event. In each case, com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent things can turn out to be the per­fect present. But with a lit­tle atten­tion, you can eas­i­ly guess what will be the most desir­able and use­ful for both mom and baby.
