Having a child is a huge deal, let Giftwhale lend a helping hand.

👶 New arrival?

With a new baby you can count on one thing - lots of love and good wishes on your new arrival, most likely accompanied with new gifts for the baby. Whether it happens to be your first baby or not, over the last few months you have probably spent a lot of time preparing for the arrival, part of which will have been creating a list of items that you'll need.

During that time you might even have found people saying to you "oh don't buy that, someone will buy it for you". That's why making a wish list for your new baby is important - it enables your family and friends to get you something they know is needed. Additionally, when your time is so precious it saves time returning duplicate or unwanted gifts and therefore gives you more time to spend with your precious new baby.

Creating your wish list

If this isn't your first baby you might have a lot of things from before, but there are bound to be a few extra things that would be really useful. Technology moves on and there might be some useful new gadget. Even if that isn't the case then it's always nice receiving new gifts that become a baby's 'first' such as a lovely new comforter, or a soft, snuggly baby-gro.

Who's to know what you already have and what you would like? Creating a wish list on Giftwhale allows you to add items from any shop, and you can even just add general suggestions, such as 'a blue blanket'. Either way, it points your family and friends towards those items that they know you will truly treasure and will really help you out.

Therefore there is likely to be a long list of things that will help you when your new arrival makes an appearance and there should be no embarrassment in creating a baby-shower wish wish. Anecdotally, a lot of people actually prefer buying from a list because they know they are getting something that you really want and haven't already got. And with lists on Giftwhale you can share it with any family and friends who are already registered, share it via social media or choose to share it with people when they ask you specifically if you want anything - with this last option you are not actively asking for gifts (so there is no need to feel cheeky!).

With baby-shower lists people tend to put a wide range of gifts on so our advice to you is add on anything that you would like. That way your list is more likely to contain gifts across a wider range of prices so that everyone can find something to get (or maybe work colleagues can club together!). The types of items that we know are going to be useful for new parents are a buggy or pram, car seats, play mats, a high-chair, baby monitor, crib, cot or mobiles. Additionally, items such as new outfits, blankets, baby carrier, a comforter, baby bath, changing mat, baby sleeping bags, baby toys, shar-contrast books (e.g. black and white) are bound to be appreciated by both parents and baby. Plus don't forget a few treats for yourself - I don't think anyone would begrudge any mum a little 'mum' time!
