How To Shop For Baby Boy Gifts

Make Them Parent-Friendly

Resist the crazy noise makers. When you’re buying baby boy gifts, you want to think first about the parents’ tastes (and what might drive them up a wall). Newborn gifting has as much — if not more — to do with the parents as it does with the child.

Think About Themes

A good way to approach gift-giving is to think of a theme. This may involve a milestone, a season, or a new parent’s daily ritual — nap time or bath time, for example. That gives your gift a through-line, so it will feel thoughtful and make sense.

Consider Your Budget

Before you start purchasing things for your gift, figure out your budget. Remember that the best gifts are the most personal, not the most expensive.

55 Baby Boy Gifts That Will Wow
