The­mat­ic gifts

What to give for the birth of a boy?

Usu­al­ly, not only future par­ents, but also their rel­a­tives pre­pare for the birth of a child. There­fore, you should think about choos­ing a gift in hon­or of this event in advance. More­over, the date of birth and dis­charge is almost always a sur­prise. Mak­ing spon­ta­neous, rash pur­chas­es, there is a risk of acquir­ing a gift that is not use­ful at all or will be inap­pro­pri­ate.

Features of choice

To under­stand this dif­fi­cult mat­ter, it is nec­es­sary to take into account sev­er­al nuances.

  • Before you start look­ing for a gift, you should ask the opin­ion of future par­ents or their rel­a­tives (grand­moth­ers are usu­al­ly aware of all the nuances).
  • Despite the known gen­der of the child, you should not buy every­thing in blue or blue. The col­or of clothes and acces­sories for a boy can be neu­tral — white or beige.
  • All con­grat­u­la­tions should not be direct­ed only to the baby. Be sure to pre­pare a gift for mom and even dad. For new­ly mint­ed grand­par­ents, you can also pick up nice words.
  • A gift “for growth” is not always appro­pri­ate. First of all, it will have to be stored some­where until a cer­tain age is reached. And there is no guar­an­tee that it will be need­ed or that the mod will not change.
  • Most of the miss­es are in cloth­ing. It is dif­fi­cult to guess the size, and if things are larg­er than nec­es­sary, you can not get into the sea­son when the child grows up to them. In addi­tion, it is not always pos­si­ble to choose things to the taste of par­ents.
  • Before buy­ing unfa­mil­iar items or brands, you can seek help on the Inter­net. There you can find reviews on almost every­thing, hav­ing stud­ied the opin­ions of those who have already used it in prac­tice.
  • Be care­ful with the choice of flors, fruits and sets, as they may not be suit­able for a nurs­ing moth­er and cause aller­gies in the baby. Alco­hol will be inap­pro­pri­ate.
  • It makes no sense to arrange a noisy cel­e­bra­tion, because the boy is still too small, and his moth­er needs a rest.

In addi­tion to choos­ing and pur­chas­ing a gift, you need to know when to give it. This is a rather sen­si­tive ques­tion. The clos­est peo­ple tend to con­grat­u­late mom and baby as soon as pos­si­ble. Since not every­one is allod into the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal, most of the gifts are pre­sent­ed on the day of dis­charge.

Those who re not invit­ed to the dis­charge, or for some rea­son missed it, should not come to vis­it unex­pect­ed­ly.

For this to be appro­pri­ate, it is worth wait­ing for an invi­ta­tion from the par­ents at a con­ve­nient time for them. At the same time, it is nec­es­sary to behave tact­ful­ly — com­mu­ni­ca­tion with a new­born is pos­si­ble only with the per­mis­sion of his moth­er.

Original gifts

Most donors strive to find inter­est­ing gifts that will match the unique­ness of the event. For exam­ple, among jel­ry you can find jel­ry designed specif­i­cal­ly for moms. It can be ear­rings, a ring or a pen­dant.

Bracelets are espe­cial­ly con­ve­nient in this regard — pen­dants can be added to them as the num­ber of chil­dren increas­es.

On the reverse side, you can engrave with pleas­ant words or cap­ture the ight and height of the new­born. If among the fin­ished prod­ucts there is noth­ing suit­able, there are crafts­men who can bring any fan­ta­sy to life. As a sym­bol of the fact that it was a boy who was born, it is bet­ter to use blue stones in jel­ry.

You can make an impres­sion in anoth­er way — to pick up an inex­pen­sive, but cre­ative gift. To save impor­tant moments in the growth and devel­op­ment of the child, you can opt for a good pho­to album. Stan­dard options are designed for the first year of life. In addi­tion to post­ing pho­tos, you can record your first suc­cess­es and achieve­ments in it.

For the same pur­pose, new par­ents are giv­en kits with which you can make prints of the arms and legs of their baby.

To show care for mom, she should give cer­tifi­cate for vis­it­ing a beau­ty salon. After all, despite all the cas­es, she should not for­get about her­self. And the ser­vices of a mas­sage ther­a­pist will help you recov­er faster and get in shape. Here it is impor­tant to agree on who will stay with the child dur­ing her absence, or use the ser­vices of a nan­ny.

Mon­ey can also be donat­ed in an orig­i­nal way. To do this, you need to choose the appro­pri­ate post­card-enve­lope or put the bills in a small paper stroller. It is bet­ter to hide a cer­tifi­cate or mon­ey in a bou­quet of flors or chil­dren’s sup­plies.

Useful things

The most prac­ti­cal gifts are those that can make the work of par­ents as easy as pos­si­ble, mak­ing car­ing for the baby easy and com­fort­able. This is what is of prime impor­tance in the first months after birth.

The most nec­es­sary items are a crib and a stroller. Usu­al­ly they are pur­chased in advance by the par­ents them­selves. If they are short of mon­ey, help in such large pur­chas­es can be divid­ed among rel­a­tives. For exam­ple, beten grand­par­ents.

To make the baby less capri­cious while the moth­er is doing house­hold chores, you can give a deck chair or elec­tric swing.

In addi­tion to tech­ni­cal char­ac­ter­is­tics and addi­tion­al func­tions (in the form of melodies and arcs with toys), be sure to pay atten­tion to the max­i­mum pos­si­ble ight of the child — the larg­er it is, the longer you can use it. The pur­chase of a car seat or infant car­ri­er is usu­al­ly done by the father, uncle or oth­er close rel­a­tive. Only in a spe­cial chair and you need to take your son or nephew home.

Anoth­er group of nec­es­sary things includes tech­ni­cal devices — ster­il­iz­ers, food heater, blender, baby mon­i­tor, air humid­i­fi­er. Their use is option­al, as you can use impro­vised means. But mod­ern devices great­ly sim­pli­fy life, save time and effort. There­fore, their acqui­si­tion is quite jus­ti­fied.

In order to make dai­ly pro­ce­dures with the baby sim­ple and enjoy­able, you can give a set of care prod­ucts.

You can buy it ready-made or assem­ble it your­self. Any­thing can be includ­ed here — baby creams, oils, pow­ders, foams and bathing gels. You can com­plete the set with bath toys. In order for the child to devel­op faster, almost from birth, you can use swim­ming cir­cle. It is bet­ter to give the right to pur­chase prod­ucts for feed­ing to a sis­ter or grand­moth­er, since this process is quite per­son­al.

If cloth­ing is cho­sen as a gift, do not buy too many things of the same size, as babies grow very quick­ly. Ide­al­ly, you can take a cou­ple of hats, slid­ers, body­suits and socks, and then pack every­thing nice­ly.

Now, almost from birth, for a child, you can buy all the items of an adult wardrobe — from jeans and shirts to dress­es.

But the fab­ric should be nat­ur­al and soft to the touch, and the cut of things should be as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble. At the same time, you can take your time to dress up the baby in tiny adult clothes, but give pref­er­ence to fun­ny over­alls or slips, in which the lit­tle one will look even more touch­ing.

An alter­na­tive to cloth­ing can be a beau­ti­ful set of bed linen, a bath tol or a blan­ket. To make it com­fort­able for the baby to lie on the sofa, and then on the floor, you will need a rug. It should be not only soft and pleas­ant to the touch, but also beau­ti­ful. The toys placed on it will encour­age you to stretch your arms, roll over and move.

An indis­pens­able gift will be books and mag­a­zines on the care and devel­op­ment of the child, which will help to avoid many prob­lems and mis­un­der­stand­ings. And books with chil­dren’s fairy tales and poems that par­ents will read will also be use­ful. Or discs with lul­la­bies, songs and record­ings of fairy tales. They will act sooth­ing­ly and devel­op hear­ing.

It can be dif­fi­cult to make a choice, or there is no way to agree on a gift. In this case, the most use­ful cer­tifi­cate for a cer­tain amount to a chil­dren’s store. Par­ents them­selves will choose what they need. More­over, they can be used for sev­er­al months.

What can be done with your own hands?

You don’t have to buy a gift, and it’s not even about sav­ing mon­ey. After all, every­thing that is made by hand is unique and filled with warmth. That is why these things are so high­ly val­ued. If the donor has hid­den tal­ents or abil­i­ties, they can be safe­ly shown.

Con­sid­er what you can do with your own hands for a new­born boy.

  • Plaid (blan­ket, enve­lope). To make the baby look espe­cial­ly solemn on dis­charge, he needs an appro­pri­ate out­fit. For the sum­mer peri­od, a knit­ted or cro­cheted plaid is suit­able. In cold­er ather, you need an enve­lope with a heater accord­ing to the ather. For dec­o­ra­tion, you can use a bow on an elas­tic band.

At first, it will be con­ve­nient to walk in it, since even the small­est over­alls can be large. It will be con­ve­nient if the enve­lope can be trans­formed into a blan­ket. The style, col­or and oth­er details are best agreed in advance with the moth­er of the baby.

  • Chil­dren’s dowry. You can sew absolute­ly any item of cloth­ing on your own — from dia­pers to hats. The advan­tage of such a gift is the com­plete absence of doubts about the qual­i­ty and con­ve­nience. In addi­tion, no one has can­celed the tra­di­tion­al knit­ted booties, socks and suits.
  • Bor­ders. It is cur­rent­ly fash­ion­able to make them in the form of pil­lows, and some of them can be styl­ized as ani­mals. If the name for the boy is cho­sen in advance, it can be embod­ied in the form of soft three-dimen­sion­al let­ters.

  • Met­rics. This is a spe­cial mem­o­rable gift, which will imprint the most impor­tant num­bers — the ight and height of the child, as ll as the time of his birth. The met­ric will serve as anoth­er dec­o­ra­tion for the chil­dren’s room. There are quite a few options for its imple­men­ta­tion.

It can be ordi­nary embroi­dery or bead­work, wood carv­ing or even a draw­ing.

  • Mom’s trea­sure. You can put things in it that are rem­i­nis­cent of the baby — a curl, the first tooth, tags from the mater­ni­ty hos­pi­tal, chris­ten­ing clothes, the first hat or socks. As a rule, it is made in the form of a box with com­part­ments. The size of the box can be dif­fer­ent, as ll as its design — decoupage, scrap­book­ing and the like.

If there are no cre­ative abil­i­ties, it is worth pay­ing atten­tion to oth­er ideas. The hus­band, hav­ing called for the help of friends, can make a sur­prise — to pre­pare an apart­ment. To begin with, it should be ll cleaned, and then — to dec­o­rate. For exam­ple, order balls and fig­urines from them. You can hang posters with pleas­ant words and con­grat­u­la­tions.

It is bet­ter for the rel­a­tives to take over the orga­ni­za­tion of the dis­charge, free­ing the moth­er from unnec­es­sary trou­ble. This will be the best gift for her.

Friends can also help in cre­at­ing a mem­o­rable video with the par­tic­i­pa­tion of the main char­ac­ter — the baby. Or write down your wish­es. In addi­tion to words, con­grat­u­la­tions can be backed up with deeds — take the ini­tia­tive and come to the aid of new­ly-made par­ents when it is need­ed.
