Four perfect gifts for expecting parents


Whether it’s a friend, family member or co-worker, finding the perfect gift for the expecting parents in your life can be tricky. Do you go the sentimental route and get them something to remember the moment? Or do you go practical and get something that will help make their lives with a new baby easier?


We’ve put together this list of four gifts any expecting parent would be elated to receive.


  1. A Pregnancy Subscription Box

Subscription boxes are the perfect way to ensure you’re helping the soon-to-be mom in your life prepare for her baby while also pampering herself. Companies like Bump Boxes and The Stork Bag specially curate packages on a monthly or trimester basis and send them directly to the recipient. Want to make sure dad feels the love, too? Get him a matching subscription to a father-focused box like The Rad Dad Box.


  1. A Baby Book

With so much going on during pregnancy and the first year of life, it can be hard to remember the little moments. Thankfully, that’s where pre-made baby books (like this one from Artifact Rising) come in handy. Thoughtful prompts and photo squares make it easy for parents to quickly document the moments they want to cherish forever in a beautiful format that will hold up for years to come.


  1. Diapers, Diapers and more Diapers

While it may not be the most glamorous gift, diapers are always a thoughtful way to help expecting parents prepare for what’s to come. It’s estimated that a typical infant will go through 300+ diapers in their first month of life — a cost that can add up quickly. Plus, there are plenty of sites that offer diaper gift bundles in cute shapes like cakes and hot air balloons.


  1. Online Parenting Courses

Online parenting courses are as close as you can get to giving soon-to-be-parents a “baby manual.” And, with, parents can enjoy 70+ courses 24/7 from any device — without ever leaving the comfort of their couch. They’ll love the classes, which cover everything from nutrition to car-seat safety to how to set limits with infants and toddlers. You can even choose between two subscriptions — starting at $29.99 for three months — to fit within your budget.
