Holiday gift giving for new parents is fun because you are not limited to a baby shower registry list of onesies, diapers, and other new parent must-haves. While it’s always a good idea to help out new parents if they are still in need of baby essentials, holiday gift giving for new parents gives you more freedom. Because let’s face it, you’ll never be able to give them what they really need: sleep and about eight more hours each day. But, you can come close with these adorable and practical baby gifts and new parent gifts for the holidays.
