- Baby Starter kits
Many companies offer free baby stuff hat include nappies, wipers, feeder bottles etc. This also can be a great gift.
- Gifts for the older siblings
The older siblings can feel a little neglected once a new baby comes. While you are giving gifts for the new born it is a good idea to include the older child as well so that he/ she doesn’t feel left out. You can give a free ticket to XYZ circus, age appropriate computer games or coloring books.
