Baby Gifts for the Holidays

Everyone loves to spoil their children, grandchildren, nieces, nephews, brothers, and sisters. The holidays are a perfect reason to spoil a baby without feeling guilty about it. You can buy as many gifts as you want that will light up a big, bright smile on your baby’s face. You could even buy gifts that are good for your baby or a baby that you might be buying for. Keep in mind to buy gifts that are safe, healthy and age appropriate. Here are some ideas for baby gifts during the holidays.

Toys are great for babies and small children. They offer hours of entertainment, are fun to play with, and can also be educational. When buying toys, it is better to find a toy that your baby will benefit from. A lot of toys are designed to be educational. Also, you should look at all toys and check the age level which is included on most toy boxes. Small toys can be dangerous to small children. Check toys for any damages that could scratch your child or be swallowed.

Clothes are great gifts for any age. Baby clothes especially are so cute and good to give because babies go through so many changes during the day. They also grow so fast that they always need new outfits. Baby clothes also have the most festive holiday designs such as reindeer, snowflakes, angels, or Santa Claus. You can find organic clothes that are made with fabrics that won’t irritate or scratch your baby’s skin causing eczema flare ups.

Diapers and diaper ointment can become very expensive. Parents with small children and babies in diapers will appreciate a couple of packages of diapers and diaper ointment. It will help cut monthly costs spent on diapers. This may not seem like a fun gift, but the parents will really appreciate the help. Gifts don’t always have to be luxurious or fun; they can be items that are needed. If you decide to give diapers and/or ointment as a gift, buy organic products or cloth diapers that won’t cause a rash.

Gifts for a baby’s room are thoughtful and can last for years. You can give decorative pieces that will be cherished as the baby gets older too. You could give a night light, lamp, blanket, crib sheets, a rocking chair, or some other type of furniture. Another decorative piece that will surely be cherished is a stuffed animal. They sure have come a long way from the traditional teddy bear, and you can get any sort of stuffed animal. A lot of these gifts will be appreciated by the parents as well.

Organic Gifts for a New Mom

A goal in life for many women is to have children, and once they do all their dreams come true. It is a joyous occasion for all friends and family members in the new baby’s life. Moms are filled with unconditional and endless love for the little life they welcomed into the world. It is a time for thanks that such a beautiful life was born to loving parents. It is also a time for relaxation and bonding with your newborn baby and your significant other. Giving some relaxing organic gifts such as lotions and candles for a new mom to use is a great way for her to relax and enjoy her time at home. Here are some organic gift ideas to give a new mom.

Making a basket full of foot spa necessities is perfect. Their feet may still be swollen from carrying their baby for 9 months. Soaking their feet in warm water with organic oils with lavender or peppermint scents would be a great relaxation method. Including a pumice scrub stone would be smart because she, or someone else, could scrub the dead skin off which will make her feet soft. It can feel very ticklish or relaxing and sometimes both. In addition to using a pumice stone, using a foot scrub will also make her feet soft. Organic foot scrubs heal dry skin and replenish moisture because they are made with organic shea butter and dead sea salt. Foot lotions have a great peppermint or eucalyptus smell usually and are made organically. They smell nice and are very relaxing.

You could also give a gift that was for the mom and the new baby. If you assemble a gift basket or package, be sure to use all organic products because babies’ skin is so sensitive that products with chemicals in them could be irritating. Lotions for adults can contain synthetic materials which can make she skin more dry which can lead to eczema or an increase in eczema flare ups. What should you include in your gift for a baby and a new mom? I would include some type of eczema oil. Eczema is common with babies and the oil can be used on any type of dry skin or as a preventative measure. Baby wipes can cause diaper rash, and a great alternative would be to use an organic baby wipe companion. You could include an assortment of baby and mom lotions and oils.

If the new mom doesn’t like foot scrubs or lotions, you could give regular lotions or skin care products. Plumeria or cucumber body butters are soft and smell good. After taking a relaxing bath, which every ne mom has been dying to do for 9 months, they can moisturize with the organic body butter. Instead of giving foot scrub, you can give her body scrubs instead which don’t smell like peppermint. The body scrubs will remove any dry or dead skin and leave the skin feeling fresh and moisturized. Any type of natural skin care product will moisturize and make her skin look beautiful and glowing. If the product isn’t organic, her skin may be left feeling more dry or irritated.

A lovely bouquet of flowers or a poinsettia arrangement are always welcomed and greatly appreciated by the host. This gift idea is a way to show your thanks for an invitation to an event or dinner, and they also act as a decorative addition to the host’s home. Poinsettias are perfect during the holiday season because they are festive in color and are a common holiday decoration. You could also make a flower arrangement with flowers from your own garden or from a local garden where you live. Organic flowers are beautiful and safe for your or the host’s home because they are pesticide free.

Baking some type of sweet treat, pie, or bread is another great gift idea. The host could use your home baked gift at her dinner for dessert or save it for themselves after everyone has left as a nice way to relax and enjoy something wonderful tasting. Baking or cooking with organic ingredients will ensure the best tasting dish that is healthful and good for our bodies. Organic cooking won’t have any synthetic or harmful ingredients. You could bake a warm apple pie, some sweet pumpkin bread, or some homemade fudge. These are festive and great tasting holiday treats.

Throwing a dinner party or holiday party can be stressful and take a lot of work and preparation for the host. A great idea for a host gift is to make a basket with relaxing lotions, candles, or body oils. You can include all of these to make a variety basket with different types of relaxation products. Making the basket with natural skin care products will show that you really care about your host because you aren’t giving harmful products with harsh chemicals that could cause skin irritation, which isn’t very relaxing. Organic products are made with relaxing scents and ingredients such as plumeria or cucumber. The host will really appreciate being able to relax with organic cucumber body butter.

You could give one or all of these ideas for a host gift. When you are preparing the gift for your host, take the time to make the presentation beautiful. The holiday host will love these gifts.
