Truly Unique Baby Gifts for First Time Parents

Did you know that September is the most popular birth month in the US? According to 20 years of birth data, mid-September is the most birthday-packed time of the year, with September 9th being the most popular day to be born in America! 

For new parents, their greatest gift will most definitely be that they can finally hold their sweet little baby in their arms. However, it’s still a time when family and friends can shower them with plenty more presents. 

There are tons of options to choose from when gifting to new parents, but not all those baby gifts are truly unique and special to the couple and their growing family.

Most likely, the parents-to-be will already receive diaper bags, bouncers, and rattles. So, if you’re thinking about what to get for the new parent or her child, find something unique and personal to truly stand out. 

Read on for a few ideas of unique baby gifts that new parents will love. 

Bumble Clothing and Accessories

In this day and age, most couples we know have actually met through a dating app. Bumble, the women-first dating and social networking app, has come out with a limited-edition collection of baby clothing and accessories – perfect for any of your friends or family who may have welcomed a little one into their family after finding love on the app!

Bumble’s Baby clothing collection is available for purchase starting today, September 8, 2022. So if you know anyone who may have kicked off their successful relationship on Bumble, and now have brought a baby into the world, these pieces would make an awesome and unique baby gift.

The collection includes a “mini move maker” bucket hat, a unisex cotton onesie, and a white terry cloth hooded towel with bear ears; all featuring cute Bumble phrases such as “sweet as honey,” “my mom made the first move,” and “mini move maker.” All items are limited-edition and can now be purchased via Bumble’s e-commerce shop at

Letters To Your Child Book

This book will allow new parents to write a letter to their child each year.  A keepsake book of moments, memories, and messages of love, written in your own words. Inside you’ll find prompts, questions, and space to write a letter to your child each year of their childhood. Read these pages together through the years, or wait to present this book on a graduation or wedding day for a beautifully personal gift that can only be given by you.

Name Nightlight

Give a personalized touch to a baby’s room with this name night light. The light of the lamp is soft to create a cozy atmosphere that helps with relaxations and make them feel safe while asleep, plus helps to make them sleepy quickly. The text is engraved on the night light and it’s there forever – the name will never peel – rub or fade away. 

Baby Bum Brush

This isn’t the most glamorous baby gift, but not many people know about this awesome baby invention! Babies are so often prone to diaper rashes, requiring plenty of diaper cream to be placed on their bottoms.

I was totally unaware as a new mom that this stuff is gross! It’s so thick and stick and gets everywhere! When you get diaper rash cream on your hands, you need to wash them for 5 minutes to scrub it off!

So the Baby Bum Brush is an amazing invention that I think all new parents should have on hand.

Personalized Silicone Rattle Set

These personalized rattles and pacifier clips from Liefie Clips make great teethers for a baby. The soft silicone is great for baby’s gums and the personalization makes these gifts a great keepsake.

Tush Baby Carrier


There are a lot of baby carriers on the market, but none of them are quite like the tush baby carrier. Once a baby is about 5-6 months old, they can hold themselves upright and don’t need to be in a full baby carrier.

My kids always disliked most baby carriers because they were too restrictive on them. Their ideal position is usually being held on my mom’s hip.

The Tush Baby Carrier allows a parent to hold a baby on their hip, but without all the physical strain that it causes as the baby gets heavier. 

Doona Car Seat Stroller

The Doona car seat and stroller is an expensive gift, but it’s like pure magic for a new parent! It’s won countless awards for the innovative design that combines a fully integrated car seat which smoothly transforms into a stroller.

This means no rude awakenings when transferring infants in and out of the car. Ask any veteran parent and they’ll tell you: More moments of peace and quiet are truly priceless!

Daisy Personalized Sunglasses

How adorable are these floral sunglasses for a baby girl from HEI Unlimited? Of course, she may not keep them on for awhile, but they can be kept for years until she grows into them.

You should be able to find a unique baby gift for the new parents within any of the above choices. They’re all sure to bring a smile to their face!
