The announcement of a new baby’s arrival is usually an exciting time – for both the parents and their friends and family members. Gifts for new parents are also fun to buy. But with so many types of baby products available in the market, it can be overwhelming if you are shopping for one.
The trick to choosing something for a new parent? Think convenience, lifestyle and value. Here, we share x practical yet amazing products new parents will love, making them perfect gifts for baby showers and first month celebrations.
Singapore is bustling with entertainment and events all year round. With a new baby in tow, however, being out and about can seem like a chore. Gifting travel essentials to new parents can make their outdoor experience a little easier and more enjoyable. Strollers seem like a usual choice, but how about something a little more hands-free?
Choose baby products such as a baby carrier that has ergonomic functions that take the weight off the back as the baby grows. Babywearing also comes with many benefits such as allowing one to keep the child close to prevent unnecessary exposure to viruses and diseases – especially helpful in the COVID-19 climate.
If the new family drives, you can also consider getting a sturdy car seat such as the Baby Auto Dupla Fix 0+/1/2/3 All Stage Car Seat. Designed to last throughout a child’s life, it also comes with a Full ISO-Fix base and five-point harness for all-round safety.
Newborn babies go through a lot of milk a day. Whether the new parent will end up breastfeeding or bottle feeding, there is no debate that getting them some feeding supplies will make their lives much easier. Products such as nursing covers – for breastfeeding mothers – allow mum to feed on the go; or opt for accessories such as bibs or even a good supply of wet wipes to help with the constant spit-up or accidents.
The Pali High Chair is a great option for new parents, too. This feeding high chair offers optimal support and comfort for a growing child with its many features. Think ergonomic seat that is adjustable to 6 different heights, reclining backrest, safety features and more. All these are perfect for a growing child!
Home and Living
In this new age and time, parents are constantly looking for home furnishing items that offer lifestyle comfort and convenience for their children. If you’re thinking about giving them a cot, look for one that is functional and with a good safety track record.
The MOOB Baby Abby Anti-Colic System (ACS) 5-in-1 Convertible Baby Cot is popular among parents as it comes with many unique features. The Anti-Colic System (ACS) helps relieve the discomfort that comes with this common baby issue by allowing parents to adjust the crib’s slate to reduce pressure. It is also extremely value-for-money. With five different adjustable heights, the crib will grow with the child from newborn all the way to when he or she is older as it supports weights up to 100kg. Additionally, the crib also meets or even exceeds all mandatory and voluntary safety standards and made with sustainably harvested wood from reliable sources.
Or how about getting additional storage for the new parents? In space-tight Singapore, more storage space is always welcomed. From a small chest of drawers to a full-length wardrobe, you can easily find a wide variety of options to suit different lifestyles. Bed pockets are also great as they allow parents to reach for baby supplies such as diapers and wet wipes easily.
Give The Perfect Gift
What new parents really need is love, support and encouragement from their friends and family. Getting them a thoughtful gift is one of the surest ways to let them know that you care. At Palette Box, you’ll find an extensive range of products for new parents that they’ll actually use – such as bedding supplies and lifestyle equipment from internationally recognised brands. For three consecutive years, we have also received the Super Mom award for the best mattresses and baby beds in Singapore, and is endorsed by the National Chiropractors’ Association.
