Tis’ the season of babies! It feels like for the past two years, all of our friends are starting families. My husband and I love to go baby shopping! There are so many adorable outfits and accessories that we could spend hours in Carter’s Baby Store. But over time, it became difficult to find the perfect newborn gift. Although we love searching for cute little outfits, finding a keepsake that is meaningful and unique is a whole different story! When looking for a unique newborn baby gift, we look for presents that are useful and something that parents typically wouldn’t buy for their baby!
I hope we can give you some inspiration for Newborn gifts that are unique, special, and useful.

These First Tooth and Curl boxes are adorable!! What I love about these little Elephant Keepsakes is that they are useful and something that baby will have as a memento for years to come. They are made of zinc alloy which will keep them looking beautiful for a lifetime. I also love that they are cute enough to be displayed on a shelf, bookcase, or dresser… Momma won’t want to pack these guys in a box! Click Here to Purchase
2. Memory Jar
My family loves to reminisce about our childhood! I’m sure there are so many memories that have been forgotten about too. What I like about this memory jar is that it will be used for years to come! Parents can write silly words baby tried to say, dates of first steps etc., and accomplishments. I love that this gift will be kept forever! Click Here To Purchase
Hello Organic! Natural and wooden toys are some of my favorite gifts to give newborns. This material is durable so it can be passed down for generations to come. It’s also a toy that baby will get so much use out of especially as he or she grows. What I like about this rattle is that it’s sealed with Extra Virgin Coconut Oil which means no harsh chemical coating! Click Here To Purchase
Since I mentioned how much I love wooden gifts, this Hair Brush and Comb set is a classic Newborn Gift! Again, this is an item that can grow with baby. The soft brush is made with goat hair, which is gentle enough to be used on babies delicate hair. As their hair begins growing longer, the massage brush and comb will be of great use. I like giving this to first time parents because it will last for their future kiddos too. Click Here To Purchase
How cute are these little rattles?! The cow, lion, giraffe, and dog fit right inside the house. The colors are gender neutral so this is perfect for boys or girls. I love that early on, baby can use these to shake around and promote hand-eye coordination. As they grow, they can practice putting the animals in the house and carrying them around!

Of course, I couldn’t leave out our Scripture Baby Swaddle! This can be used from the time baby is born until their a toddler. With so many uses, blanket, play mat, nursing cover, stroller shade – it’s the perfect unique newborn baby gift! What a beautiful way to wrap him/her in God’s word. I’ve had many momma’s and grandma’s give this to their toddler to help them sleep through the night. It’s GOT certified muslin cotton with no harsh chemical smells either! Click Here To Purchase
Oh this is so precious! I’m not sure what I love more, the pattern or versatility. Not only is it stylish, but it can be used for a play mat, rug, or even a wall hanging! This is a bit higher in price but will be so useful to parents. It’s always nice to have a few things that still go with mom’s home decor. Click Here To Purchase
I’m a sucker for a cute keepsake box! There are so many little things these can hold from hospital bracelets to pictures. When I give boxes like this, I’m sure to include a thoughtful letter to the baby and along with a special outfit! Click Here To Purchase
Hat’s are another one of my favorite gifts to give! Oh how precious newborns look in these little itty bitty hats. Especially for winter babies, knit hats are such a sweet present. I often give a hat like this with a keepsake box, so they can remember just how little they were! Click Here To Purchase
10. Crochet Bunny
Please tell me these aren’t the cutest stuffed animals you have ever seen?! This product simply made my list because of how adorable they are! I love the natural look of the yarn and couldn’t help but think every Newborn needed one of these Crochet Bunnies! Parents often get Newborn photos taken and this would make the perfect prop. – Click Here to Purchase
Each of these products would make the perfect keepsake for a newborn baby! I have given several of these myself and have had many friends compliment how much they loved them. It’s important to keep in mind that baby isn’t going to remember this gift. I think it’s essential to give something that mom and dad can keep as a reminder of you. There is only so many baby clothes and trinkets that parents can keep!
I hope you loved one of these Unique Newborn Baby Gift Ideas!
