Many parents start reading to baby from day one and find that it is a valuable bonding experience. Any baby book with a simple, clean layout, contrasting visuals and short, straightforward text makes a good choice. Look for touch-and-feel books, pop-up books and books with mirrors, which are all fun for babies. Blankets. Keep baby warm and comfortable with a soft blanket. A luxury blanket made of cashmere or silk can be a nice change from other gifts and will probably become a family treasure. Blankets that have been embroidered with the baby's name or initials are also a unique newborn baby gift.
