Ideas For A Baby Boy

Airplane RockerIf you know someone who is having a boy, you might not know exactly what to get except for the generic diapers or blue clothing. There are a few newborn boy gifts that are functional for the parents and that are a bit more adorable than ordinary blue and yellow gifts that you might think about. A picture frame with the materials to make hand prints and footprints of the baby is a good gift for someone who already has diapers, wipes, and other items. This is a gift that can be cherished for years to come as it's a personal symbol of the baby from the time he's born. 

The baby is going to begin eating baby food at some point, so why not make feeding time fun with bibs that look like bandanas? These adorable bibs come in a variety of designs but look more like a bandana instead of a traditional bib with a curved edge. You can usually get packs of at least three or more so that the parents have a variety of bibs. 

You might not think of gowns for a baby boy, but a swaddling blanket is an option for keeping the baby warm. It's also easy to change the diaper as all you have to do is open the blanket to expose the clothes underneath and the diaper. A soft book with different textures can be a learning tool for when the baby starts holding things in his hands. Personalized newborn blankets are an option if you aren't sure what to get and can include the name of the baby as well as the date of birth, weight, length and time. 

A gift basket is also an idea if you want to get something that the parents can use but want to include a few different things together. Get a blue or white basket with a baby boy balloon attached to the handle. Get sleepers, washcloths, towels and other items that are blue, yellow or green in color. Other items that you can include for a boy are a small tractor or a car that he can play with when he's older or puppy stuffed animals that are blue and brown.
