This elephant will make you smile the first time you see it. Both of its feet have a button. When you press one button the elephant will flap its ears and sing the adorable song “Do your Ears Hang Low”. When you press the other button he will play an adorable game of peek a boo with baby. When my baby was just months old he enjoyed watched the floppy ears and listening to the relaxing elephant. As my baby has becoming a little toddler its still one of his favorite toys. He presses the feet all the time and giggles and dances with the elephant. It makes my heart melt. This is one of my favorite unique gift ideas for a new baby.

On a regular basis baby won’t need to be wearing super fancy or crazy stylish outfits. Mom will be in a hurry to get baby diapered and back in his or her outfit. She won’t want to mess around with socks, buttons, and taking pants all the way off. That’s just way too much work all the time for mom. She will want to quick get baby back in his or her clothes and ready to go. When you have pants, socks, buttons, and the whole deal diaper changes turn into a long process. So, to make the process simple and less of a hassle, zip outfits are the way to go. These outfits are adorable, comfy, and will make life easier. A new baby (and mom) will love zip outfits much more than button outfits. Trust me on this one.

Zip-Up Swaddle

Swaddles can turn out to be a huge pain. Mom will end up struggling to get baby to stay in the darn thing. A swaddle is basically a blanket you wrap around a baby, and the baby is supposed to stay wrapped in it (like a burrito). It helps a baby feel soothed and comforted like mom is holding them. The problem with swaddles is that they never stay put and always come undone. The solution is a zip-up swaddle! This makes baby swaddling so much easier, and less stress for mom and dad. You simply place the baby inside and zip-up! No more stress trying to get baby in snug and tight. Every new baby owner will love this useful gift.

T-Shirt Baby Carrier

Baby carriers are another thing that can be a pain. They have so many straps and things that are supposed to keep baby in tight. Yes, they work, but it can be hard to figure out how to put baby in right when you’re on your own. You have to hold baby up high and then try to strap him in. Carriers aren’t always the most practical item. But, I found something that makes baby wearing so much easier. It’s a baby wearing t-shirt. It’s much easier than a typical carrier, and mom will love the ease of use. This is a great gift for a mom (or dad) on the go.

Giant Teddy Bear

A giant teddy bear makes for great room decor when the baby is very tiny, and when the baby gets older they can play with the bear. This teddy is huge and adorable, every time you and baby see it your day will be a little brighter. If you think baby will like a different animal instead of a bear, there are other giant animals too, like a giraffe. This is a fun gift, that the baby will love and cherish for a very long time.

Hooded Towels

Hooded towels are extremely useful gifts. After baby has finished a bath you can wrap baby up in the towel and make sure their head is warm by tucking it inside the hood. When I give my baby a bath I make sure I grab a hooded towel because they are much more practical. These towels also come in handy if baby ever goes for a swim (with supervision of course). Mom can take the baby out of the water and wrap them in a nice hooded towel, and their head won’t freeze.

Funny and Useful Toys

You can find toys that are humorous and useful too. These toys will make mom and baby smile, yet baby will love to use them. The rattle is fun and a simple toy for baby to play with. The teethers are funny and baby will love to suck on them when their baby teeth start to pop up. These toys will be a great gift, and ones that are sure to be remembered.

Baby will LOVE these Gifts

All the gifts listed are sure to make baby giggle and smile, and of course mom will love them too. They are creative, unique, and special. They are typical ordinary gifts that will be given, they will be extra special. Sometimes when a mom makes a baby registry they really don’t know what will come in the most handy, as they haven’t had a baby yet. That’s why they will enjoy a few gifts they didn’t know they needed that are especially unique. These truly are stand out unique gift ideas for a new baby.

  1. It gives me so much joy when I can buy a gift that is unique and functional at the same time. This is why I wrack my brains for an appropriate gift when I have a new member join our family, and even for the friends that are around me who are in that stage of their lives (I am past that time now, but enjoy even more all the new arrivals in this world as a grandfather of 6 wonderful kids so far).

    This was a light-hearted yet extremely useful post that is going to help me in my searches for sure. I also like to keep up with trends, so items like the t-shirt baby carrier, the buff baby toy, and the zip-up swaddle (what great ideas!) are all ones I will buy for the next additions of babies around me.

    Also, I will be back, as I am sure there are more ideas and tips that you have here that I can either use myself or pass on to other loves ones, whether family or friends. It really made me happy reading through your post, thinking about how I am going to make some babies and new parents happy too. Thanks!

  2. Dear Katy,

    Thanks a lot for the helpful and informative article.

    On March 2nd my wife gave birth to our boy baby and I was doing some search online to find out some essential things for our baby and your post means a lot to me and the timing is awesome.

    Yet to buy any toys but we received few as a gift and I am planning to buy Gund Baby Animated Flappy The Elephant Plush Toy its really awesome and the price is also very cheap. I watched the video you embedded and immediately decided to buy it.

    Baby wearing t-shirt is amazing and it will be very helpful, its on my list. Nesting Days Mens Carrier (Black, Medium) is the next one I am interested with and the pricing is also affordable and under my budget.

    Much Success!


  3. I liked your post, the ideas you give are really cute.  The floppy elephant toy is adorable and the clothes for babies are very useful. I like the swaddle for sleeping at night but I feel not for using during the day, limit the movements of the child. I love the T shirt baby carrier, easy to use and practical.

  4. It’s really difficult sometimes to think of what to give to a baby since they might already have it, especially if the baby has an older sibling. Thanks for these lovely ideas. The floppy elephant is so adorable, the baby will enjoy playing with it even when they grow a little older. I also think onesies are a practical idea since it’s so easy to dress them.up this way. 

  5. Dear Katy,

    I would like to another gift for my brother.His age is just 4 years old,Is giant teddy bear will be perfect gift for him?Or do you want to recommend any other gift for my brother?

    1. Happy to have helped! I think he would LOVE a giant teddy bear, or any giant animal. You can frequently find giant teddy bears at Costco. Another idea for a 4 year old would be a cute tent.

  6. As far as i remember, when i was a kid i was playing with cars and tanks. But i think memory starts to fold at the age of 4 so that’s too old to say and irrelevant.

    I guess when the baby is still young, it needs curvier and fluffier toys that mostly have a button to do something funny.

    I certainly like the Zip-Up Swaddle. What baby doesn’t want to fold like a burrito. I think when the baby grows up and learns about it, he/she will be happy. It’s also practical so why not?!

    Well the Bear looks good, but maybe a panda will look cooler (and cuter).

    The horse on your other link looks good too . Of course it must ridable hehe !
