11 Adorable and Affordable Gift Ideas for Newborns
Tiny little baby feet are so cute, but they get cold so easily. While little shoes are adorable and hard to resist, babies tend to grow out of them fast. Socks or booties are much more practical and longer-lasting -- and cheap enough that a gift-giver can afford multiple pairs, such as cable-knit or duck-crochet booties for $9 at Carter's.
Another way to personalize a gift is with the gemstone or astrological symbol that corresponds to the baby's birth date. A small stone or figurine could cost as little as $5 but be kept forever. (The smaller the gift, the longer it should stay on a shelf or in a box, lest the child mistake it for candy!) Etsy shops have offerings such as downloadable prints from Karitas Design for $4 and silver spoons stamped with the zodiac constellations for $16 from Milk & Honey Luxuries.
