My brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first baby this month and they are not finding out the gender ahead of time. Part of me is a little jealous because there is no way that I could have waited to find out what I was having. I really wish I could have waited but the planner in me had to know.
So, when it came time to buy them a baby shower gift, it got me thinking – what is a good gender-neutral baby gift? What do you get the baby that isn’t pink or blue? Well, it turns out it’s a lot easier than you think and I’ve created a great list of baby essentials that are perfect gender neutral gift ideas.
Gender Neutral Baby Gifts under $15
Diapers – We all know you can’t go wrong with diapers! My biggest tip is to not buy newborn or size 1 diapers. It seems like a newborn goes from wearing size 1 to size 3 overnight so I always stick to buying size 2-3 when giving diapers as a gift.
Wipes – Need I say more? All new moms and dads will need lots of diapers. Plus, it’s nice to keep packs all over the place. We even keep a pack in each car. You can never be too prepared!
JOHNSON’S® Bath Essentials – This is a given. Every new mom and dad needs baby wash and lotion and JOHNSON’S® is the only brand I buy. Not only are they hypoallergenic and free of parabens and phthalates but they’re new formulated products are even gentler with 50% fewer ingredients.
Hooded Towels and Washcloths – I have a small obsession with hooded towels for babies because they are so stinkin’ cute and they have some adorable gender neutral ones available. And, every baby needs wash cloths. Definitely a necessity for babies.
Infant First Aid Kit – This is a great gift idea. Make sure to include diaper rash ointment, gas relief drops, nail clippers, a nasal aspirator and a thermometer in the first aid kit.
Books – Every baby needs lots of books.
Swaddle Blankets – Babies love to be swaddled and I’m loving all the grey, teal, and orange baby blankets they have available. I even love the idea of black and white blankets for babies.
Teething Toys – Every baby will need something to chew on.
Portable Diaper Caddy – My mom bought me one when I had Connor and it was the best thing ever! It makes diaper changing so much easier. I had one downstairs in the living room and in our bedroom for all those diaper changes.
Special Gift for Mom – We can’t forget about mom. She deserves a special gift too. I always like to add a small gift just for the mom-to-be. My favorite is to take a water bottle and fill it with chocolate kisses. You could also add a gift certificate for a pedicure. That way she’ll have pretty toes when she has the baby and she’ll have a new water bottle to use while she’s taking care of the new baby. Mama needs to stay hydrated!
Want to make this the best baby gift? Put everything inside the diaper caddy and turn it into the perfect gift basket. Hover over the image above to quickly shop for all your favorite JOHNSON’S® baby wash and lotion products at Target.
And, guess what my friends? I found all of these awesome baby gifts at my happy place – Target! Target just makes me so happy. I even made sure to stock up on diapers, wipes, and JOHNSON’S® baby wash for my own toddler because we still only use their products during bath time. Their commitment to safety and innovation shows that they never stop raising the bar when it comes to what’s best for our children. I’m also loving the new easy-to-use pumps and creamier washes.
I have more exciting news – Buy 3 JOHNSON’S® baby products between 8/12 and 9/1 and you’ll receive a $5 Target gift card to use in the store or online at Target.com. There will also be a Target in-store sampling of the Cotton Touch and the Bedtime lotions on August 26 with a coupon that will be available for shoppers. Like I needed another excuse to buy my favorite items at Target:)
