Expectant Parents Gifts {gifts for Mommy, Daddy, and siblings}

It seems that all of my friends (at least the online ones) are either getting pregnant, about to have babies, or just had babies. Now, my little sister is pregnant with her first baby and she is just at that age when all of her friends are pregnant, about to have babies, or just had babies, too. All of this baby talk has me thinking and I have two questions. 

Question 1: What are the most popular expectant parents gifts?

Question 2: Where is the water everyone is drinking so I can be pregnant, too?!!

**I will be updating this post from time to time with gift ideas for expectant parents. I will also be posting reviews of the two items in the giveaway (and many more)…I'm just running behind and wanted to get this giveaway ready for you ASAP!

  8. Gianna says:

    Personalized baby blankets are always nice.

  9. I like to give expectant parents a photo album for baby pictures, and also a gift card to a restaurant so that they can go for a “parent’s night out” . All parents need time to connect with each other when they have a new baby. They can sometimes neglect their relationship.

  10. Joni Owada says:

    I love the Tiny Tillia Growing Bodystuits. It includes a 0-3, 3-6, and 6-9 month bodysuit (they all coordinate) and they are very good quality. I gave a set to my sister-in-law two years ago and it is now my go-to gift (along with an item from the registry of course).

  15. Sherry Compton says:

    Diapers – you can never have too many – and sleep sacks – comfy and easy diaper access.

  16. Lisa R says:

    I like to give them a few starter outfits but it depends on the wish list on their registry

  26. rebecca williams says:

    Diapers are my favorite to give and receive

  27. Something off of their registry because people who can’t follow a registry DRIVE ME NUTS! I usually supplement their gift with the dry ingredients for lactation cookies. 🙂

  28. Tina W says:

    Gift cards so they can buy diapers at a later date and several frozen meals in disposable foil pans.

  33. Brittany C. says:

    The book, ‘Guess How Much I Love You’! Also, blankies, onesies, bibs, burp cloths (because you go through so many!)

  34. aimee lee says:

    a Miracle Blanket or bouncer chair. i know how valuable both of them are!

  35. michelle warner says:

    diapers because you will need a ton of diapers, cant go wrong with that

  36. Rebekah {livingbigonlittle} says:

    It completely depends on how well I know the parents and whether it’s a first baby, first girl/boy, third or fourth baby, etc. I threw a “meal prep” shower for a friend recently to get a bunch of dinners in the freezer for her so that she didn’t have to worry about cooking for awhile and knew that her family would actually eat and enjoy the meals they received.

  37. Lacey j says:

    I love to give gift cards to baby stores, always appreciated and the new parents get to have some fun shopping 🙂

    A Boppy for breastfeeding parents.

  46. Kathleen Fitzsimmons says:

    Clothes and diapers

  47. Nikkie Cossairt says:

    My favorite gift to give to expecting parents is Diapers and wipes. They always need them.

  48. Keonte says:

    I just registered today and I would have to go with whatever item(s) is/are on their list. Second, I would go for gift cards so they can buy what they want.

  49. Devona Fryer says:


  50. Kristi Cartwright says:

    I love to get things off their registry because I know how frustrating it is to get a million of something you don’t need when you spend HOURS researching for what you want to register for. I think it’s so much more helpful and respectful of their time–you save them running everywhere for returns!

    • janet says:

      This was a little frustrating for me when I was pregnant as well, but I have to admit that I typically think that I know what they need better than they do, haha! I had one person buy every pillow and blanket from my registry online and spread them out (no pun intended) so we got a new blanket every other day or so. That was really fun!

  51. Danielle Porter says:

    diapers, It’s boring, but practical!

    • janet says:

      …and in all sizes!! There is nothing more frustrating with a new baby than to get 47 packages of newborn diapers and within a month, they are in size 1 and you have no diapers that fit!

  52. Bekah Kuczensk says:

    Clothes, I love shopping for tiny clothes 🙂

  53. Nicole Bear says:

    I like giving either gift cards so they can pick up things they didn’t get from others, or a package of “green” and baby safe cleaning or baby care products.

  54. chelesa sims says:

    My favorite is a gift basket

  55. Deborah says:

    Handmade baby quilt.

  56. I always give a Boppy. We used ours SO MUCH that I know how useful/versatile they are.

  57. Chelsea says:

    I love to give them my hand sewn Owls

  58. Shay says:

    I’ ve started giving diaper wreaths.

  59. Kortney Picker says:

    I love to pick out outfits, I love shopping for baby clothes!

  60. Leah CB says:

    I like to give baby nightgowns. They are so great for all the nighttime changes.

  61. Carol L says:

    I too would say Gift Cards. But another gift would be to Babysit for Mom and Dad and give them a night alone. 🙂
    Carol L.

  62. Nicole M. says:

    Muslin swaddle blankets

  63. Jayme H. says:
