My Favourite Treasures Found On Amazon: Unique & Practical Gifts For New Parents

Parents can be hard to buy for. It can be really hard to find something unique and practical … and that will also not break the bank. With all 4 of my girls, I got a lot of clothes, blankets and sleep sacks for Christmas presents. There’s nothing wrong with these … I ended up with a lot of each of these. It was over-whelming, and some of the stuff I didn’t end up using because I had too much of it or they grew out of it before I could use it.

So, I have put together a list of useful and unique gifts for parents. I have personally used and love almost all of these… so if you have any questions, just let me know and I’ll answer!  If you have a new parent on your shopping list, this is the perfect gift guild for you!

My sister would always be out walking the baby and want to give him a sip of her water this solves the problem by screwing on to any regular water bottle. She hasn’t had any problems with, great product at a great price not much more you can ask.


Zazu Lou nightlight: This soft glow night light turns on when baby cries. No more fumbling around in the dark to turn on a stimulating big light.

Promising Review:

I love the brightness of this light that was especially handy when my daughter was brand new and I slept with it on at all times. I just wish it offered lullabies too 🙂 great night light!!

BEST BABY GADGET EVER!! Every parents needs this, it will save your sanity. It is indeed the miracle sleeper!

Boon Snug Lids: These 1-piece silicone lids make any cup into a non-leak sippy cup.  No more hard to clean sippy cups that takeover your kitchen.

Promising Review:

Wow! I love these more than I thought I would! We always have one in my toddler’s bag and we have used one on every shape and size of restaurant cup out there with no problems. The fit is absolutely water tight. My son is capable of making the most complicated “spill proof ” sippy cup leak, but these ones never have and we have been using them constantly for several weeks. Moms everywhere I go stop me and ask me where I got them. Boon is such a high quality brand and I really appreciate Amazon’s pricing over my local “kid’s boutique”!

Go Anywhere Travel Feeding Booster Seat: This seat perfect feeding seat for on-the-go, traveling parents who love to eat out. It has a 5 point harness, and is small enough to pop into the diaper bag. 

Promising Review:

This booster is terrific! Super easy to set up and pack away. The three straps hold it securely to any chair. Its soft construction makes it very light, portable and comfortable for your child. Cleans up with a quick wipe-down. You’ll probably find you use it far more than a bulky high chair — it’s not just for travel! Makes a great gift for yourself or new parents — I highly recommend this product.

Stroller Gloves: These stroller gloves have velcro that easily attach to the handle bar of your stroller.Universal fits most single handlebar prams, strollers, pushchair, shopping cart, and more.

Promising Review:

Really happy using it with my uppababy vista in below zero temperatures in Canada!

Baby Comfy Care Deluxe Safety Nail Clippers: Won’t cut baby’s skin – Protects sensitive nail bed

Promising Review:

I cut my son twice while he was sitting perfectly still drinking a bottle & felt like a monster (with regular baby clippers) needless to say I became very nervous about nail cutting from then on …I just cut all his nails while he squirmed & wiggled as my husband read him a book (with these clippers) & no cuts! I suggest these to all my new mom friends. The best!

The Gro Company Gro-Egg: If the room temperature is outside the recommended guidelines you’ll know at a glance

Promising Review:

Love it!! Let’s me know what the temperature is just but looking in the room! I can adjust what my baby’s wearing or add more blanket! It expensive but so helpful not to worry is there to hot or to cold!

Baby Brezza Formula Pro: For hassle free formula preparation

Promising Review:

Ordered this as a present for my daughter in law who has just given birth to our first grandson to help supplement her breast feeding.So easy to set up and use. It makes the perfect bottle of formula milk in seconds and the milk is the right temperature so you can use it straight away! Absolutely brilliant- I only wish it had been invented when my son’s were born!

Reusable Food Pouches: Refillable pouches can be used again and again.

Promising Review:

I use these everyday with my 9 mo old and have since he was 6 months. By now he is able to eat from the pouch mostly on his own! The mixed size pack is nice so you can figure out what works best for your family. The smallest ones are great for younger babies or snacks for older babies. I even use these at home because my son is very independent and he likes being able to feed himself.


There you have it. If you have a new parent on your holiday gift list – I’m sure they would love anything on this list! What’s your favourite thing on the list?
