Shopping for a new baby is tons of fun, but keep in mind that baby gifts and shower gifts aren’t just for newborns and infants — they’re mainly for parents. Chances are a baby will enjoy whatever is put in their hands, so it’s important for any gift to pass a parents’ test as well, or else your present will just end up turning into nursery clutter.
Is someone in your life welcoming a baby boy? The best baby boy gifts in 2022 tend to be both personal and practical (not to mention durable!), and if you’re not finding any inspiration on their baby registry, then we have some ideas to get you started.
For unique baby boy gifts they’ll love (and what parents really need), choose something that’s built to last.
These items stand up to the rough treatment of them by the baby and the washing and cleaning needed afterwards, so they will last through the toddler gift stage.
If you can’t find the items below in a color scheme or pattern that you think your giftee will like, then be sure to check out our parenting experts’ recommendations for baby girl gifts or gender-neutral gifts as well. And then you just sit back and let the compliments roll in — until it’s time to start looking for gifts for 1-year-olds.
