What To Get New Parents For Christmas

A Nook GlowLight Plus

Babies are exhausting. Often, new parents feel as if every second of every day is devoted to keeping their little one happy and healthy. While this is a good thing, it often leaves new parents with very little time to do the things they love. In fact, even reading a book can be difficult. The Nook GlowLight Plus can change all of that. It’s an e-reader with a softly glowing light that illuminates the screen in a dim or dark room. It’s not as bright as a traditional tablet or smartphone, which allows mom or dad to enjoy their favorite novel, even while holding a baby – and without any disturbance.

Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wand

New parents spend a surprising amount of time cleaning and disinfecting hard surfaces. The Verilux CleanWave Sanitizing Wand can make that process easier, faster, and more fun. All they must do is turn it on and pass it over the surfaces to be disinfected. It looks like something out of a sci-fi novel, too, which only adds to its appeal – especially for dads.

A Date Night

New parents don’t spend nearly as much quality time together as they should, so if you really want to give them a gift they’ll treasure, give them a date night. A gift card for their favorite restaurant certainly goes a long way, but it’s even better if you reserve them hotel room and offer to babysit for the evening. They’ll be incredibly grateful, and they may even cry a few tears of sweet relief.

While it might be tempting to buy new parents baby products, it’s more thoughtful – and appreciated – if you think of them, as well. Any of the three ideas above are perfect gifts for new parents.
