5 Gift Ideas to Send an Employee with a New Baby

5 Gift Ideas to Send an Employee with a New Baby

Children are such a miracle, and mothers go through such a special and emotional time during pregnancy. We’ve curated several gifts to honor your employees who are welcoming a new addition to the family. What better time to show them how honorable it is to be a parent than when their lives are about to change forever?

Baby gifts are usually unexpected from coworkers, making them that much more exciting to receive. One of the best things about choosing a gift for a new baby is adding in a few things for the parents, too! Maybe a pair of Mignon Faget glasses, hospital snacks, a hand cream or a new family picture frame. The options are endless!

Mothers in the hospital expect to get baby clothes, burp cloths, and bibs, but the number of pleasantly surprised “Thank You’s” we get from mom gifts is astounding! Adding a piece of chocolate, a luxurious candle, a pair of Barefoot Dreams socks or a necklace with the baby’s initials makes your personalized gift unforgettable. 

New dads need to be taken care of as well, and a new Brumate mug for chugging coffee on those late nights, or just some Jack Black men’s wash and lotion, will remind him that he deserves some self-care, too. Though mothers give birth, fathers have to watch their wives struggle through many of pregnancy’s hard times. They feel the need to protect and provide for their families, and that calls for some encouragement, too!

Let’s not forget the new baby’s siblings! To make sure big brother and big sister don’t feel left out, include some toys or snacks for them to open. We can add anything from our kids’ section to your baby basket. Just let us know when you order, and we’ll make a personalized gift that everyone in the family will enjoy.

Show the new parents just how much you care! Here are 5 gift ideas to start you off. 

1. Welcome Baby Boy/Girl - $45

Whether or not you’re family, this sweet gift shows Mom and Dad how much you care. You can choose the boy or the girl version, both including a Warmies stuffed animal and a pair of baby socks  as well as a candle and lotion for Mom and Dad. This is a  great little gift for your coworker and their new miracle!

2. NOLA Baby - $68

A box that screams “NOLA baby!” with an alligator teether, a Night-Night Louisiana board book, baby NOLA-themed socks, and a fleur-de-lis onesie. The new beignet baby will be right at home! This gift is gender neutral and perfect to bring to your next gender reveal party. This gift is also great for someone who loves New Orleans or has just moved nearby. They can embrace The Big Easy by adorning their little one in fleur-de-lis and other Louisiana gear.

3. Rainbow Baby - $70

This magical box of rainbows is the perfect welcome for a new baby girl! Her pot of gold includes a unicorn rattle, a rainbow teether, rainbow baby socks and a pink muslin swaddle (with rainbows, of course). This happy little set is so precious and will brighten up Mom and Dad’s face when they open the box!

4. Welcome Louisiana Baby - $76

A fleur-de-lis onesie, bib and matching teether accompany the sweetest bedtime story, Night-Night Louisiana, in this gender-neutral baby gift. The bib and onesie are so super soft, and the Louisiana touch makes this gift that much more special! Show the NOLA love to the newest office arrival. It’s simple, sweet and thoughtful. This gift box is also perfect for a gender reveal, as it can be gender neutral in color. 

5. Welcome Little One - $78

This sweet gift for a baby boy features the softest Barefoot Dreams baby socks, our best-selling blue crab muslin swaddle, a baby-safe bar soap and baby blue fleur-de-lis teether. It’s soft, simple and says “welcome to the world!” Add an adult-sized pair of Barefoot Dreams socks for a sweet Mommy-and-Me gift (at an additional cost).


Reach out to us with any additional items you’d like to include in your basket or box. Our gift builders will add your vision to our original design to curate a personalized employee gift they are sure to love. 

If you’d like to build your own box with individual products, you can do that, too. Just choose the Build a Gift option at the top right of our website to see individual items and design your own basket. Our team can also give you suggestions and finish off your basket within your budget with our best-selling items.

Don’t forget other members of the family when you hand-pick your additional items. Also, keep in mind your color scheme. Is the family having a boy or a girl? Do you know the nursery colors? Is this going to be a gender neutral gift? Choosing additional gifts to add in might change the overall effect of the gift once it’s put together. 

Our team has seen so many personalization options over the years, so contact us by email or our website chat box if you need some ideas! One neat idea is to personalize the container of your gift basket (wooden box, serving board, etc.) with the baby’s name. We’ve also added personalized mugs or water bottles. 

You hand-pick the perfect gift, and we’ll make it look like a grand celebration!
