Christmas present ideas for new or expecting parents
Looking for Christmas gifts for parents, parents-to-be, or their kids? And have no idea what to give them for Christmas? No worries. Here are some golden Christmas presents for new or expecting parents. And yes, we have dropped some of our own products on the list.
Perfect gifts for new or expecting parents
1. A nourishing face cream, or tummy cream, for the expectant mother
Someone who carries a child undergoes many physical changes, becomes very tired, and is challenged in a purely bodily way. Put simply, it can be really, really hard being pregnant. That's why we give gifts to encourage those who are carrying a baby in their belly. Let the mum-to-be indulge in a nourishing cream (and maybe treat her with a spa day at home). She deserves it!
2. We can't wait any longer, our SleepCarrier has to be on the list
This was the first product Najell as a company launched. With several different functions, it can be used as a soft lift, mattress, baby carrier, and baby nest. The SleepCarrier, because of its many uses, simply makes new parents' lives easier that first year. Meaning you can give the gift of parental freedom for Christmas this year.
3. A framed photograph, painting or poster
This is a sweet gift with a personal touch as the expectant parents and baby can keep it as a memory. Maybe a cute frame to display the baby's first photograph, or a map showing the baby's birth place? Or, if you feel creative - buy some paint and brushes and DYI.
4. A massage
All pregnant women dream of a massage. That's just the way it is.
5. A Baby Carrier
A baby carrier makes it possible to have two free hands whilst keeping your newborn close. There are many options to choose from. Either you can go for a soft and cozy baby wrap for that initial time together at home or a baby carrier that's easy to bring everywhere. Or maybe both? Whatever you decide, it will make life as a new parent go so much smoother.
6. A pregnancy journal, a baby's first-year book, or a guest book
There is a lot going on when you're pregnant and waiting for your baby. Never mind what then happens after the baby arrives. Being able to capture and reflect on all those memories, thoughts, and moments in a book is a Christmas present that the new family will cherish forever. A nice guest book also makes it possible for family and friends to write their hello greetings to the new family member.
7. The diaper bag - or the baby's first backpack
As a new parent, you will have a LOT of stuff to bring with you everywhere you go. Subsequently, a chic diaper bag is something that will come in handy. With Najell's Diaper Bags you can stay organized in style. The smart and classy design makes you want to use it long after the baby is potty trained. Older kiddo? Check out our new kids' bag collection. Maybe a first backpack for the little one - or a smart fanny pack?
8. A pair of good headphones
The truth is that there will be many instances where new parents will want to watch TV shows or listen to the radio/music without disturbing a sleeping baby. Also, a pair of good headphones are great to bring to the hospital when it's time to give birth.
9. Comfy loungewear - and maybe a pair of slippers
Trust us, when you're pregnant all you want is soft, cozy, and comfy clothes to relax in at home. They will also be your savior after giving birth when your body is on the sore and tender side. A pair of slippers is not only great for those days at home but also a good thing to bring to the hospital when the due date arrives.
10. Soft bedsheets and blankets for the baby
We all remember our first little blankie... Give the baby a soft one in muslin to bring when they are exploring the world. And when it's naptime, our bed collection in muslin makes the bed a happy place. So the small one can get a good night's sleep and be ready for whatever the next day brings.
11. A classic world-renowned photo book
"A Child is Born" by Lennart Nilsson is an incredibly fascinating read during pregnancy. You can follow along, with photographs, the full process from fertilization all the way to delivery and the baby's birth.
12. A pregnancy pillow
A pregnancy pillow is a pregnant's best friend, both during pregnancy and during the first months as a new parent. The pillow gives the pregnant body the right support and helps the neck, back, and legs to be in the right position. Najell's Pregnancy Pillow has two smaller nursing pillows inside, making it the only pillow you need to get.
13. A box of chocolate
Food cravings are real during pregnancy. Getting an edible and delicious Christmas present can move almost anyone to tears of joy. Also, who doesn't love chocolate?!
14. A cute little bathrobe for the small ones
Name a better feeling than a fluffy bathrobe after a warm bath… we will wait. Najell’s Bathrobe is made from a soft and absorbent towel-like material that is great for little wet heads. Making it easy to dry up after bath time. And with the secure zip and belt to tighten, it will stay on no matter how much they run around. The perfect gift for your favorite parents this Christmas.
