If there’s anything new parents don’t want, it’s visitors. As they adjust to life with a newborn - be it their first or a new addition to the family - adding regular visitors to the mix isn’t ideal. Especially when lack of sleep and cluster feeding can be killers in those earliest days. 

But if you’re keen to gift the new baby with something, instead of dropping in, why not send something through the post? Even better, with Moonpig’s next day delivery (if you order before 9pm), you can rest assured that your gift will arrive the very next day.

Plus, unless you’ve had a child of your own, finding the best baby gift can be tough. But thanks to Moonpig, you’ll find an adorable new baby gift easily. 

To help you, here’s some of the most thoughtful gifts for parents and their new arrivals currently available on Moonpig right now with next day delivery.

And remember - don’t forget a card

1. Made with Love Peter Rabbit Soft Toy

Moonpig Peter Rabbit

Price: £15 | Buy now from Moonpig

There’s no denying Peter Rabbit is a classic go-to when it comes to babies. Beatrix Potter’s magical tales of the beloved rabbit and his friends have stood the test of time, and remain a favourite amongst families who are expecting a new arrival. So we’ve no doubt that any new parent will fall head over heels in love with this timeless and irresistibly cute My First Peter Rabbit. This high quality soft plush is perfect for babies to cuddle, play with and enjoy. If a soft toy isn’t what you’re looking for, there’s also this adorable first little library book, wooden blocks, or this Peter Rabbit mood light that would complete any nursery.

2. Bambino Musical Water Ball

Price: £18 | Buy now from Moonpig

Although this isn’t suitable for children under 36 months, it is a superb gift to order as a keepsake for the new arrival. Alongside the soothing sounds of ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’, a little shake will reveal stars and moon sequins swirl around the teddy bear inside. As we’ve said, it’s not a toy so should be kept from little hands until they’re old enough, but we’re sure new parents will appreciate the thoughtfulness of this one - a gift their baby can keep as they grow.

3. My Special Keepsake Box

Pink Version / Blue Version

It’s not uncommon to keep tiny memories from your baby’s arrival into this world; their umbilical cord clip, their hospital wrist band, the first ever hat they wore, their birth certificate... These are all things that have to be kept safe somewhere - and this My Special Keepsake Box would do just the job of storing those precious memories. Designed with a white-wash wooden effect and hinged opening, the keepsake box comes in both pink (pictured above) or blue (main image) and features the words ‘My Special Keepsake’ on top of the lid. There’s also a ‘Mummy & Daddy Love Me’ blue ribboned heart tag and an elephant applique. Honestly, it’s the perfect gift for new babies.

With this kit the final results can be either framed or hung with the ribbons included.

It may be a few months until the new arrival can use this, but that’s no reason why you should avoid it as a newborn gift. This baby’s first breakfast set comes with three pieces, each displaying wonderfully cute scenes from Sam McBratney’s timeless story, ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. In the set you’ll find a plate, a bowl, and a sippy cup, which we’re sure the new parents will appreciate having when it comes to weaning their bundle of joy.
