Buying a gift for a newborn can be difficult! You want to celebrate the new baby in the world, but what do you get them besides clothes? Well, I’m here to share some fail proof ideas that you can happily steal! Feel free to share your own ideas in the comments! I’d love to know them!

A friend of mine from high school just had her first baby, a little girl named Logan, on Halloween. When I was contacted by Put Me in the Story about reviewing their Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: Baby’s First Record Book, I immediately knew I had to make one for little Logan!

I’ve worked with Put Me in the Story in the past and I just love their products. How fun would it be to get a personalized book? If you’ve ever thought about buying a personalized book but wondered about the cost or not knowing how long a child would be interested, then this is the book you should start purchasing! A baby memory book is something that the parent – and then most likely the child – will forever keep. I know I love looking back at my own, and Winnie the Pooh has always been a favorite of mine so this one is just adorable! As you can see in the above photo, the cover allows you to put the baby’s name and photo!

In the very beginning of the book, you can add your own personal message and then the same cover photo is included right below it!

I love that throughout the book there are Winnie the Pooh quotes and illustrations that relate to the page. The one above is the first photo of Logan, so the parents would add their first sonogram there.

This page is Logan’s First Day at Home. I love that there is so much for the parents to fill out as the year goes on and their little one grows. It’s such a sweet memory that they are sure to love. You can check out more of the book’s inner pagesΒ here. This book costs $34.99 but Put Me in the Story is currently offering 30% off sitewide when you use the code HOLIDAY30 so buy now!

Ready for some other newborn gift ideas? Let’s go!

  1. Offer to Babysit: Hey, this is a gift for the baby, though I’m sure the parents will enjoy it a bit more! Having a new baby can be tiring and overwhelming, so make up some fun coupons or just let your friend/family member know that you are up for babysitting if they want a little time to themselves – even if that’s just an afternoon nap some weekend!
  2. Hand print or foot print ornament: I love these personalized ornaments! It’s such a cute way to commemorate a new baby and it’s something that can be taken out every single year! Some options are here, here, and here!
  3. Something Personalized: Like the memory book and the ornaments, I think personalized gifts are really sweet. It shows that you put a little thought into the gift and wanted something for that specific child in your life. Some options are this personalized throw pillow, personalized bodysuit, or even this Teddy Bear Pewter Baby Cup!!
  4. Clothes/Accessories: Yes, I know I started this post saying that it’s hard to think of what to give newborns other than clothes, but sometimes you really can find the cutest things! Try looking for something a bit different or unique, such as this Petit Ami Newborn Girls Christmas Santa Smocked A-Line Dress or the boy’s version, the Petit Ami Baby Boys Newborn Long-Sleeve Christmas Santa Coverall & Woven Shirt Set. Other ideas are these absolutely adorable moccasins for girls, dog hat and booties set, or even this quilted pram from Carter’s. Too cute!

  1. I love that memory book! I’ll have to keep that in mind for when my newest little one is born! The other ideas are spot on, especially offers to babysit! Heck, I’d take that one for my 5 year old as well!

  2. I love these ideas. My best friend just had her baby two months ago and I feel like the time is flying by. I think having something like this would preserve all these memories that are going by way too quickly!

    That book is adorable, and you have shared some super awesome ideas here. New parents and babies need some serious love from their friends and family community!

  4. My little one was born in December last year and we got a memory book and have adored filling it over the last 12 months. It is such a wonderful keepsake that I can’t wait to look at over the years and eventually give to her.

  5. This little memory book is the cutest ever! Our son was born around Christmas so I can tell you your list is spot on! Those were all things we loved getting from people, especially the offers to babysit, lol!

  6. I love the sweet memory book! I especially love that it is personalized with notes specifically for the little one. I also love the footprint ornament idea. Their little feet will never be that small again and it’s so special to capture the moments when they are so tiny!

  7. A memory book like this one, Winnie The Pooh are priceless. Also, will be kept forever as you say, Lauren. The other ideas are great too. I always want to get the little hand made slippers as they’re irresistible. The only problem being they’re such a temporary use.

    What a cute book! I would have loved to have one of those when I had babies! Diapers are always a good gift too! Can’t ever have enough of those!

  9. The things one can buy nowadays, (lol) are so adorable. That book is so cute, I would like one for each of my adult daughters! I love to gift a ‘night out’ for friends who have younger children. We give them a gift certificate to a restaurant and provide the babysitting. We love it!
