Practical baby gift ideas aren't too hard to come by. Aunt Abby suggests that anything a baby absolutely has to have is an essential and practical baby gift.
What Is a Practical Baby Gift?
A practical baby gift is something that can be used often, something that can be used up, or something that might create ongoing, unexpected or difficult expenses for the family of the new baby.
Here are some things that can be used often and are very practical baby gifts:
-a baby monitor
-a baby car seat
-a diaper bag
-baby crib sheets
-sleepers or gowns
-a baby bathtub
-baby bath towels
-a high chair
-a crib (or a crib that converts to a toddler bed)
-a baby care kit (nail clippers, thermometer, suction syringe, etc.)
Fun Fact: An average baby can go through 14,600 diapers before he or she is potty trained. (Aunt Abby says diapers are a very useful baby gift).
Fun Fact: Saving bonds double in value between the purchase date and the maturity date. (Aunt Abby says saving bonds are a practical baby gift and a reasonable investment).
For a practical baby gift that can be used up you might consider things that could be burdensome expenses over the long-run. A case of diapers, a case of baby formula (make sure it's the right kind), baby bath products, diaper wipes, diaper creams, gentle laundry products and so forth make for a very practical baby gift.
A savings account or saving bond to help a family meet unexpected or difficult expenses that may arise is also a very practical baby gift.
