A No-Fail Guide to Buying Baby Gifts for Boys

Is one of your friends or family members having a baby? Buying baby gifts for boys isn’t always easy since so many baby stores seem to carry more stuff for girls than boys. Choosing gifts for a baby boy can be especially tough if you’ve never been a parent yourself or if you’ve only parented girls. If you want to buy gifts that the parents and baby will appreciate and use, keep these pointers at the forefront of your mind.

Think Practical

When buying baby gifts for boys, you might be tempted to purchase cute toys and decorative items, but it’s best to buy something that the baby and parents will actually need. For example, diapers may not be the most glamorous gift, but the parents will certainly appreciate the gift! Avoid buying newborn size diapers, however, because babies tend to grow out of them quickly. If the baby’s parents have a gift registry, use that to buy them a gift they actually requested.

Buy Clothing in Larger Sizes

When you’re buying baby gifts for boys, you may consider buying clothing. His parents will really appreciate it if you buy clothing in larger sizes that he’ll be able to wear once he outgrows the smaller stuff.

Consider Getting a Gift Certificate

One of the risks of buying baby gifts for boys without knowing exactly what the parents want or need is that you may end up getting them something they won’t ever use. If you don’t want your gift to go to waste, buy a gift certificate instead.

Choose Baby Gifts for the Brain

Choose a CD with music or an educational book or DVD instead of traditional gifts like clothes and toys. The parents will appreciate gifts that encourage their baby’s brain development and the baby will be thoroughly entertained!
