If you know a couple who’s having a baby and they are keeping the gender secret, you may want to consider buying them unisex baby clothes in order to help them prepare for the arrival of their little one. Buying unisex baby clothes is a great way to help the couple enjoy the surprise of their baby’s gender while still helping then to prepare as much as possible.
When shopping for clothes for the baby shower or simply for a gift, you have probably discovered that many clothing lines and stores seem to cater to baby girls. You may find it to be rather challenging to find suitable unisex baby clothes. An important consideration when choosing unisex baby clothes is choosing a color that can be worn by both genders. Light green, yellow, white, tan, even browns and reds are all great unisex choices. When it comes to style and prints, there are many different unisex options to choose from. Keep in mind that you should avoid gender specific prints. Look for clothes with animal prints or outfits with geometric shapes, stripes, or letters.
There are many essentials that new parents need to make their everyday lives easier. When choosing unisex baby clothes, help out the parents-to-be by covering some of these necessities. There are some items that are necessary whether the baby is a girl or boy. Baby hats are very important. Newborn babies must be kept warm and comfortable. Baby hats will help prevent the loss of body heat from the top of the baby’s head. Newborn babies can also go through several one-pieces a day. A one-piece is great because it can be worn alone in warm weather or under jumpers and sleepers in cold weather. Footed sleepers are another great option for babies in cold weather. Parents can keep their baby’s feet nice and warm without constantly dealing with missing booties, socks, or baby slippers. Some other important essentials when buying unisex baby clothes for new parents are socks, jumpers, bibs, shirts, burp cloths, and blankets.
If you think that your friends have the basics covered, consider buying unisex baby clothes that are necessary but fun and cute to have. Gender-neutral blue jeans are a great choice. Blue jeans are probably not convenient for everyday wear but they are a cute choice for when people come over to see the baby or when parents take the baby out. Little sweaters, baby shoes and boots, jackets, and overalls are also non-essential yet fun options. Whatever you choose, just remember to pick items in gender-neutral colors and unisex prints.
If you know that your friend or family member is planning on have more children, unisex baby clothes can be a great choice even if they know the gender of their current baby. Giving the gift of unisex baby clothes means that you are already helping the couple prepare for future children. Regardless of the gender of the next baby, they will be able to reuse the clothing that you got for them. This will be especially cost effective for them if they can reuse items that are more expensive; such as coats, bedding, snowsuits and blankets.
If you are trying to help out a friend or family member find affordable unisex baby clothes, try to find quality used clothing. Look in consignment shops and check out online auctions. You can also look in your local newspaper to find yard sales that have baby and kid items. People who have older children are often eager to get rid of baby clothes and toys in order to free up space in their home.
