Travel kit gifts for newborns

One of the most essential items for a newborn is a diaper bag! Parents can’t travel with all the comforts of home, but a fully stocked diaper can be a real life saver. A great newborn gift is a diaper bag filled with all the necessities a parent needs for outings with an infant.

Diaper bags come in all shapes, sizes and prices. Depending on your budget, there will be plenty of choices in your price range. There are basic bags, designer bags, and even bags geared toward outings with dad—affectionately known as diaper “dude” bags. Whatever bag you choose will be the base of your gift that will hold all the newborn accessories.

Fill your diaper bag with useful, practical and fun items. Start with newborn diapers and travel wipes. A regular size tub of wipes will take up too much space in your diaper bag, so find a travel size that can be refilled. Travel size lotion, baby wash, diaper rash ointment and hand sanitizer is a must. It is also a good idea to have some infant fever reducer/pain reliever for emergencies. A portable changing pad is a great accessory for changing baby on the go. Include a few Ziploc bags for soiled clothing or for diaper disposal.

Once you have the necessities, you can use fillers according to your budget. Bottles, bottle warmer, pacifiers, burp cloths, teething rings, tissues, sun block, small receiving blankets and comfort toys are appropriate filler items. Newborns can usually use a change of clothes, so it’s a good idea to include a travel outfit for emergencies. Hats are appropriate for cold weather seasons.

When your bag is filled, your gift is ready—no wrapping is necessary. This newborn gift helps take the stress out of traveling with a newborn. Any parent will enjoy this creative, convenient gift that is immediately ready to use.
