The Best Baby Gifts for Newborns Parents Will Love Too 4

While you can always turn to a baby registry for a shower gift or baby gift ideas, it can be fun to surprise parents (and their little bundles of joy) with a totally unique present as well. And since you can pretty much always depend on the baby to happily drool on whatever is offered, any baby gifts you get should be purchased more with Mom and Dad in mind, especially if they have limited space and a desire for things that their little one can actually use. Lucky for you, we’re here to take the guesswork out of baby gift shopping with presents that both infants and their parents will love.

To help you get started, we consulted the experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute Parenting and Pets Lab, who test infant-friendly items throughout the year to find the best gifts for babies. The Lab looks for toys and gear that are well constructed, easy to use, helpful for development (if possible) and — of course — cute as heck, since that’s half the fun of baby gifts. And in addition to baby toys and gear, we’ve selected some nice things for parents, including top-reviewed items, editor’s picks and best-sellers for you to peruse. All of these items are good for newborns and up, unless otherwise specified.


Muslin Swaddle Blankets
There are a million uses for these muslin swaddle blankets. Parents can utilize them for tummy time, as swaddles, as burp cloths, and as blankets, and they even spread them over the couch to save it from drool. They also come in a huge range of designs.
 
Portable Baby Changing Pad
Sure, this gift is more for Mom and Dad than for baby, but when the diaper gets changed on the go, the little ones will appreciate the built-in pillow on this wipe-clean travel changing pad.
 
The Very Hungry Caterpillar Key Toy
There’s a reason The Very Hungry Caterpillar remains a favorite, even after 50 years: kids and babies just love Eric Carle’s illustrations. Now, they can take them along with this key toy, which also clips to a stroller for easy access.
 
LyricPop Picture Books
This is another gift that babies can appreciate but parents will appreciate more. LyricPop books turn favorite songs into picture books in different illustration styles, including “(Sittin’ on) The Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding, “Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac, and “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor, among others.
 
Tinkle Crinkle Caterpillar
Each segment of this caterpillar gives babies something new to explore, including colors, textures and sounds. One segment will squeak, another will rattle, and another will make crinkly noises.

Developmental Bumpy Ball
Colors to look at, bumps to touch, sounds to hear — this thing is basically baby heaven. The bumps are covered in different textures for different sensory feels, too.

My First Soft Drum and Guitar
Baby’s first instruments are usually hard, like egg shakers. However, these instruments are soft like stuffed animals, plus they use lights and sounds to introduce babies to music and rhythm. They won a Good Housekeeping Best Toy Award in 2020 because of the unique combo of softness and sounds.
 
Cotton SleepSack
Make the art of swaddling easier than ever with this 100% cotton sleep sack, which features an inverted zipper for quick nighttime changes, as well as Velcro closures that allow you to fasten your baby with hands in or out.
 
Sit and See Floor Mirror
Can you find a happy baby? Hint: It’s the one looking back at you. This toy (which folds flat for storage or travel) is ideal for tummy time, especially since the crinkly leaves and colorful fabric are perfect for keeping a baby’s attention.
