Buying a Baby Gift


Shopping for Baby

Congratulations! Whether this is your first or fifth child, having a baby is exciting. A new baby means love, joy and a whole new world of responsibilities.

Buying a Baby Gift

When a new baby arrives, so too do the gifts. Baby gifts run the gamut from practical to sentimental, and may be as inexpensive as a stuffed animal or as expensive as a crib. If you find yourself wondering what to buy for new or expecting parents, or where to find it, visit some of the sites we’ve selected and let them do the legwork for you.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • Be sure to see if the expectant parents have a gift registry with a specific retailer. This can help you take the mystery out of what to get them, especially if you haven’t had much experience with babies. Registries from the larger retail stores are usually available on the Web.
  • If you’re a parent but are unsure what to get for someone’s new baby, consider buying a few things that made your experience as a first-time parent easier, such as that bottle brush that worked wonders or the toy your child couldn’t live without.
  • If you’re buying clothing, it’s okay and sometimes preferred to buy clothing a size or two bigger than newborn, but don’t forget to keep the season in mind. A cozy winter bunting won’t see much wear if the baby grows into it during the summer.
