Keep reading as we walk you through some of our favourite baby bundles below, as well as answering some of our frequently asked questions about gifts for new parents.

What are the best gifts for expectant parents or new parents?

While no two parents are the same, our cleverly curated baby gift sets and bundles are designed to provide solutions to an array of parenting concerns. From bespoke kits built to make baby bottle feeding a breeze, to our baby bathtime bundles complete with snuggly baby grows and baby baths - our tried and tested baby bundles will likely be put to good use right away! While new parents will likely have a huge range of baby grows and cuddly toys due to the nature of having a new baby, thinking outside of the box and providing a new parent with a bespoke baby bundle will be sure to help them navigate early parenthood from the get go.

What do new parents really need?

At Direct4Baby, we know all too well that many parents often end up with a lot of entertainment for their newborn, but often find themselves lacking useful parenting essentials. While many friends and family will often splash out on toys, books and clothing for a little one - more important parenting purchases are often overlooked. Therefore, we would recommend asking new parents what they require and purchase a lasting gift that will be both practical and useful. Baby items, such as blankets, bottles, or nappies, will also save parents from rushing around for all important essentials in the weeks leading up to their little one’s arrival.

How much money should you spend on a baby shower gift?

The price you should spend on gifts for new parents depends on several factors, including how close you are to the expecting parents and the essentials they might want. So, it might be wise to ask them beforehand if there’s anything they need. With our baby gift sets and bundles, prices differ depending on affordability. Our budget friendly options start from just £29.99, or, there are more luxury bundles on offer that are ideal for friends and family looking for a meaningful gift.
