Collectibles and gifts are what makes the nursery special!
Friends and family love to give gifts that your baby will
treasure as a keepsake. Let's face it, collectibles and gifts
are really fun to pick out too!|
The birth of a new baby is an
exciting time for any family. Men and women who are not parents
usually have a more difficult time choosing new baby gifts.
Knowing what to buy for a new baby does not have to be
challenging. Avoid purchasing duplicates of what other
non-parents choose for new baby gifts, be adventurous, and show
up with unique new baby gifts that the new mother will cherish.
Once a baby is born, new moms have very little time for
themselves. The baby must come first. Diaper changes, feedings,
playtime, and colic can eat up the majority of a day’s hours.

other things that fall into the category of collectibles. There
are "must haves" and "wants". Here are just a few ideas for
collectibles and gifts you can let others know are on your list.
One item in most newborn homes are a lifesaver and must

is a baby sling. When shopping for new baby gifts, definitely

Thinking outside of the traditional box when it comes to
new baby collectibles and gifts will be appreciated. A unique
and unusual collectible gift for the parents will ensure you
won’t be copying someone else.
When time passes by and you look back, hopefully there are
small treasures to help remember the childhood memories. Your
baby is the most precious gift! Along the way, take time to
gather special keepsakes like baby's first birthstone ring,
stuffed toys, games, or even coins and newspapers from the year
your baby was born. While the value cannot be measured, the
memories triggered by those special thoughts of yesterday are
priceless. Don't underestimate the value of collectibles and
gifts that age with time.
Take just a little time to create a place in the
baby's nursery to place special items that you don't
want lost along the way. Make a scrapbook to store
cards, flowers, ribbons, and other unique baby
collectibles and gifts you want to save.
Baby gifts are abundant the first year. Write down as many as
you can along with those many other special "baby firsts". Keep
track of who they are from along with words of wisdom for a walk
down memory lane on a rainy day!
