Is there a new little bundle incoming somewhere in your family or friendship circle?
You’re more than likely planning on buying a gift for the newborn, perhaps to present at the baby shower, and the world is your oyster when it comes to variety. For some, especially those in large families like me, or perhaps with a large group of friends who all seem to be having their baby around the same time, a budget needs to be set so that you can treat them all! We’ve found some excellent newborn gift ideas for £10 and under, perfect for anyone who wants to treat the new arrival without breaking the bank.
Low cost gift ideas…
These types of newborn gifts tend to be more low-key and affordable;
- Rattles & teethers
- Soft toys
- Plush toys
- Items of clothing
- Toiletry sets
Rattle & Chew Toys
Rattle toys make a superb choice for a newborn gift, as they provide sensory stimulation, excellent for the development of hearing and sight! They also help babies to hone their motor skills – as well as being fun for them, of course.
Unisex Newborn Clothing
You can’t go wrong with some clothing for a newborn gift. Personalised baby gifts always go down well! Practical gifts like dribble bibs will win you brownie points with the new parents, as will these adorable crocheted booties.
Clothing For Girls
With warmer weather on the way (yay), the new little lady in your life will need a good selection of summer wear – we’ve found some adorable and trendy picks for under £10 here.
Clothing For Boys
We’ve also come across some gorgeous baby boy clothing for under £10, which could make a great gift for the summer months.
Why not gift something for the nursery? This is something I was so grateful for when I had my son – my aunties gifted me so many adorable decorative pieces for his room, things that I’d never have even thought to buy myself. These goodies are all £10 and under, which is amazing value for money!
An adorable plush toy is the perfect go-to newborn gift, and we’ve found these within our £10 limit!
Perhaps you could help the new parents to nurture a future bookworm by gifting some books? You can never start reading with baby too early on, it’s so beneficial and great for bonding! Writing to your baby for them to read in future is also such a lovely gesture, so why not gift a ‘Letters To Baby’ book?
Another newborn gift idea for £10 and less is a toiletry set! Help the new parents to find a range that suits their baby without them needing to spend a fortune on trial and error. We loved how many different sets we got when our son arrived! It really helped us to decide on which brands worked for him specifically, and it always helped to have a good stock of baby products in our bathroom cupboard.
There we have it – our roundup of the best newborn gifts for under a tenner. We’ve found some cracking bargains, and hope that this has helped our lovely readers.
Love from Katie! Xx
