By the way, some of these gifts are also suited to let your your parents and in-laws know that they'll become grandparents soon...



Gifts From Baby For Grandparents

Baby Countdown Clock

This one is too cute! Baby on the way, countdown to our new baby. This is a great gift idea to tell the future grandma and grandpa that there is a grandchild on the way! Get the baby timer, set it to your due date and give it to your parents or in-laws so they can always see how long they still have to wait for that little addition to arrive. Without doubt, granny and grandpa will be delighted about this gift from baby!

A (#ad) baby countdown clock also is the perfect gift if you live far away and baby will be visiting the grandparents for the very first time or time and time again. Oh the anticipation and joys!



Photo Album Of Baby's First Pictures Or Calendar

Make an online baby picture book and have it all ready printed. If you have never made a photo book before, try 

Alternatively buy a photo album or scrapbook and add baby's first pictures and some baby keepsakes like its first curl.

Add some inspiring grandparents quotes.

Grandma and grandpa will want to browse through your photo book thousands of times... 

Another cute gift is a customized calendar: Create a custom calendar featuring photos of the newborn baby for each month, if the grandparents live far away you can mark special dates for visits or family gatherings. You can also take baby's photos and add some grandchild or grandparents quotes (follow the links above and below to inspiring but also funny grandmother, grandfather, grandparents and grandchildren quotes).

Handprints And Footprints Art

Mommy or daddy can get creative with baby and both do their handprints and/or footprints for your partner or the grandparents. 

You can also create awesome, creative and colorful art pieces using baby's hand or footprints like transferring footprints into a butterfly. This is cute for springtime and Easter, there's lots of ideas for other seasons, too. Google for "baby handprints ideas", click on "images"  and you will get tons of cute results.

So you can get creative yourself - google or also check out Pinterest for lots of ideas. Just make sure to use non toxic paints for your baby artwork.

Alternatively, get a pre-made clay kit with handprints or footprints. There's also clay kits with both handprints and footprints in one kit. And there's kits for the complete family. 

A great keepsake that all parents and grandparents will love. 



Classic Children's Books For Grandparents To Read Aloud

Get the grandparents a couple of classic children's books they still know from their own childhood. Whether it is fairytales by the Brothers Grimm, Goodnight Moon or the Three Little Pigs, grandma and granddad will love to read these well-known stories over and over again to their grandchild(ren).

Special - gifts from baby for Xmas:

 Christmas Gifts From Baby

Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's Gift From Baby

Most of the gift ideas above also very well qualify for Mother's Day, Father's Day and Valentine's gifts from baby. But since these days have sort of a special love meaning, consider the following variations.

If you want a low budget gift from baby just buy a nice card - for Mother's Day, Father's Day or Valentine's Day -, write on it how much baby loves his dad or his mom and sign it with baby's handprint or footprint (ordinary watercolors will do for that purpose and they will easily wash off).  

For Mom:

For Dad:

  • On Mother's Day / Valentine's Day dress baby in a onesie saying "mom's little princess", "I love mom" or anything similar. Mom will be ever so pleased and flattered!
  • Precious Moments have a wide range of little figurines for moms saying for example "I love you, mom".
  • Get a DIY snow globe where you can insert two photos. On one side insert a photo of your baby (or baby and yourself), on the other side a note saying "I or We love mommy".

  • How about a cute "daddy's girl" picture frame. Take a photo when daddy plays with baby or when he is changing diapers - anything dad interacting with baby will be great for that purpose!
  • Also cute: baby's hand and / or footprint in clay with "daddy's girl" carved in.
  • A personalized pacifier saying "I love my dad" in pink or blue is a very cute Father's Day or Valentine's Day statement from baby, too.  



Gifts From Baby - Exchanging Gifts With Siblings Or Cousins

Give baby a good start into the family by exchanging gifts with an older sibling or cousin. Once daddy and the sibling(s) come into the hospital to see the new baby for the first time, have little gifts from baby for the big brother or big sister. This doesn't have to be a big thing but just a little something. How about a cuddly teddy bear for the brother or a (small) doll for the sister so they can have a baby to look after and care for, too? In return the sibling brings a little something for the new baby - how about a cute pacifier or baby rattle? By exchanging gifts the new sisters or brothers can start to bond in a cute way.


Cute Gifts From Baby For Everyone

Magic Photo Mug With Baby's Photo

Create a personalized magic photo mug from your favorite baby photo. Check out Snapfish, Walmart or Zazzle for this fancy gift from baby. The magic photo cup looks just like a 'normal' unicolor mug.

It's simple to create, just choose the photo you want to appear on the mug and let Snapfish or Walmart, or any other photo service offering it, do the rest. A really unique gift idea especially if the presentee never has seen such a mug before!

Travel Mug With Baby Art
