If you're looking for a thoughtful and much-needed gift to give a new baby in your life, consider treating him or her to a pair of cozy pajamas from a company like Piper Jade Kids. No matter what time of year it is, you can find a pair that will keep the child comfortable and and looking cute.
A pair of soft pajamas will make an ideal gift for a variety of special occasions, including a birthdays, holidays, and baby showers. Since babies outgrow their clothing so quickly, consider buying a pair a few sizes up or giving him or her a few pairs
When picking a perfect pair, look for ones made of soft, 100-percent cotton that is breathable and cooling in the summer or warm in the winter. Stick to natural fibers, preferably organic if your gift-giving budget allows, and avoid manmade materials, including polyester, if possible.
Here are some baby pajama gift ideas to consider:
You can make the gift even sweeter by having the pajamas personalized. As one idea, have the baby's first name or initials professionally embroidered on the fabric, choosing from a variety of thread colors to coordinate with the pajamas' overall design.
As another option, pick a pair of pajamas that features a pattern reflecting the baby shower or nursery theme, such as unicorns, rainbows, cars, or zoo animals. If you're unsure of the baby's gender, stick to neutral green, orange, or yellow shades. Popular gender-neutral design ideas include cats, dogs, horses, and sailboats for a whimsical nautical look.
2. Gift Basket
If you'd like to treat the baby to more than just one gift, arrange them in a wicker basket that the parents can use to store towels, toys, or small blankets. Neatly roll or fold one or two pairs of pajamas, place them in the center of the basket, and surround them with other small items, such as rattles, booties, or rubber duckies.
You can also include other essential baby items, such as diapers, diaper cream, powder, and hair and body wash. Create a "nighttime" themed basket with the pajamas, a story book, a relaxing CD, and a soothing lavender-scented baby lotion.
3. Holiday Pajamas
If the baby pajamas are a holiday gift, choose pairs that celebrate the season, such as pumpkin-themed ones for Halloween or heart-patterned ones for Valentine's Day. You can also find pajamas that mark a baby's first holiday and are printed with words such as "baby's first Christmas," making them ideal for family pictures.
