Gift Ideas for First Time Parents

It's happening. All of the friends in your social circle are starting to have babies. If you're a mom, you'd know that the first pregnancy is one of well, many firsts. Here are a few gift ideas for moms expecting. 

Our Top 5 Baby Gift Ideas for Parents

1. Pregnancy Journal 

As a first time mom to be, this journal has been a roller coaster of emotions, cravings and strange dreams. Every time I get a hankering for raw seafood, my husband always says: "don't worry, when bubs is older, I'm going to tell him/her the sacrifices you made". And so instead of mentally logging these things, I thought it'd be more fun to write them all down. I'm currently using this 'Bump' pregnancy journal. There are weekly prompts with space for you to log your cravings, weight and size. Oh and pages for photos of course. This pregnancy journal makes a beautiful gift and a keepsake to hand down to bub. 

Pregnancy Journal: $25.88

2. Gender Reveal Balloon Kit

Who doesn't love a reason to have a party? If your friend is planning a gender reveal party, help them out with the reveal with this gender reveal balloon kit. It comes with a set of big balloons, blue and pink confetti to match. A fun way to celebrate. From one of our favourite creators, Inklings Paperie.

3. A Scratch and Reveal Telegram Card

Don't let distance stop you from celebrating. Let your loved ones know you're thinking about them with this sweet post card sized Scratch and Reveal Telegram Card. Made with strong card stock, all you need to do is write your message (it could even be a gift i.e. an afternoon out or nights of baby sitting while mama takes a break).

A keepsake for parents to be, these tin cards are a modern alternative to the traditional baby shower guest book. It comes in a pack of 24 and includes mini note cards for guests to fill out.

5. Baby Bump Pregnancy Journal 

A place to store all pregnancy milestones for mums/moms to be. Record everything from first flutters, first ultrasound, weird cravings and more. I personally love that this little journal is so compact, perfect for those who actually don't like to journal but want to capture 9 months of magic!
