Online retailer gives consumers more bang for their buck with a new selection of gift baskets for newborn babies that combine fun with practicality.
Henderson, MD -- Welcoming a new baby into the world is a time for celebration with visits to the hospital and the new nursery at home. Bringing tidings of joy in the way of presents has been a tradition since the beginning of time. Even long distance friends and family normally honor the new arrival with the sending of boxes of items for the new infant. http://www.SimplyUniqueBabyGifts.com
has always focused their attention on providing a large selection of unusual baby gifts that are sure to get lots of giggles from the new parents, along with providing them with necessities.
"New babies need not only lots of clothing, such as bibs, burp cloths, onesies, booties and bath towels," said Pat Graham-Block, founder of SimplyUniqueBabyGifts.com. "They also need emotionally supportive items, such as rattles, stuffed animals, and blankies. We are striving to provide the best selection of gift collections that provide a nice combination of fun and functionality."
The new product line includes such selections as a baby girl gift basket that comes with a 100% cotton gown, terry hooded baby towel, undergarmet, hat, booties, (3) baby receiving blankets, quilted changing pad, lamb cuddly, (8) terry washcloths, flower & moon soft toys. All of these items are beautifully nestled inside a high-quality Moses basket. There is a similar grouping that is perfect as a baby boy gift basket.
"Most people don't realize the amount of clothing an infant goes through in one day." Graham-Block said. "Providing the new parents with unique newborn baby gifts
that are full of the clothes that is needed saves them from having to run the washing machine every day. The toys provide necessary stimulation for the child's learning. The Moses basket provides a space for baby to nap when visiting friends and relatives outside the home, so this is a gift that will be used over and over for many months to come."
The Pediatric Advisor 2006.2: Clothing Needs for New Baby: www.med.umich.edu/1libr/pa/pa_layette_pep.htm provides a list of required clothing that can be helpful for new parents. They suggest such numbers of items as 4 to 6 Socks/booties, 6 Burp clothes, 4 to 6 Body suits (Onesies) size Small.
Babies grow very fast and they will outgrow the smaller sizes quickly. The next size up will then be required in order to keep them comfortable. Also, keep in mind that you should purchase clothing that is a bit larger rather than a bit smaller so the infant has plenty of room to stretch and move around. Colors are typically pink, blue or neutral colors, such as teal or yellow. White is also very popular, especially in undergarments.
"Parents will appreciate the thoughtfulness that went into the choosing of the gift that is going to not only look beautiful - it will serve a useful purpose by adding to the wardrobe of baby clothes that are needed, especially if it is the first child. The gift-giver will appreciate being able to provide so much value without breaking the bank."
