I’ll be honest, when there’s someone expecting a baby or a new parent in my friend group around Christmas I tend to go blank. I default on giving them some age-appropriate toy, and honestly forget that having a baby can be a very expensive business, and that another toy for a child that can’t even walk yet is actually the opposite of helpful. So, I’ve put together this list of a few items that are actually useful, and thoughtful, when you’re thinking of what to get for your friends with babies.

Exclusive 30% Discount for AllThingsChristmas Readers

Oh, and to make it even better, I’ve been given a 30% off Discount Code (valid until January 31st, 2020) from the makers of three of these items so it’ll cost even less to buy a great gift for your loved one with a newborn (or even as a shower/new baby gift).

Lictin Baby Carrier

Amazon: https://amzn.to/2tbYu6j
30% Off Discount Code: 33TUQ9Q9

This semi-structured carrier is a great alternative to a regular wrap, and it’s probably one of the most versatile as you can use it as a front and back-facing carrier, as well as a waist-only on-hip carrier.

Baby Sleeping Bag

Amazon: https://amzn.to/34c5tci
30% Off Discount Code: O2FJE88X


This comes in two colours and two sizes, and is great for keeping your baby warm without having to worry about them always kicking off blankets. Perfect for little ones that usually don’t like a swaddle blanket, because the arms are open and have lots of space to move their legs to be comfortable.

DIY Design Bib Set

Amazon: https://amzn.to/36k4HLI
30% Off Discount Code: G8S7KCWV

If you’re looking to give a clever gift to an older sibling or crafty parent, this is  a really great option. Involve the whole family in colouring in these DIY Bibs which come in a set of 10 with Markers and Stencils for the whole family to help design!

Sending gifts to friends or family who have newborns is easier than ever with shopping sites like Amazon. Not just for Christmas, but would make for amazing 1st Birthday or Baby Shower gifts. We hope you find these suggestions useful, and that you take advantage of the 30% off Discount Codes as listed above, which are valid until January 31st, 2020.
