Baby Pajama-Inspired Gift Ideas

If you're looking for the perfect gift for a baby, you can't go wrong with a sweet pair of pajamas. Babies outgrow their sleepwear often as they grow so quickly, so new parents will always be happy to receive a pair or two.

Pajamas make a thoughtful baby present for any occasion, such as showers, birthdays, and holidays. You can also customize the gift to reflect a particular season, choosing either long- or short-sleeved pajamas according to the weather. 

When it comes to picking out a pair of baby pajamas, you'll have several different options. As warm-weather option, you can go with a soft onesie, or infant bodysuit, which features convenient snaps on the bottom for changing diapers. Other options include nightgowns with matching panties and one-piece footed pajamas.

Here are some creative ways you can give a gift of baby pajamas: 

1. Personalized Pajamas 

Make the baby gift even more special by having it personalized. You can either have the infant's name or initials professionally stitched on the front of the pajamas, or you can do it yourself with a sewing machine. 

As alternatives to the baby's name or monogram, have the sleepwear personalized to commemorate a special occasion, such as a 1st birthday or holiday, such as Christmas or Easter. You can also enhance the pajamas with the baby's date of birth as another option.

One more idea is having the pajamas customized to reflect a baby shower theme, such as with cupcake, seahorse, or zoo animal designs. If you don't want to pay more for  customization, look for store-bought sleepwear featuring these patterns.

2. Pajama Gift Basket 

If your gift-giving budget allows, fill a cute wicker basket with pajamas and other complementary items. For instance, place a rolled gown or pair of footed pajamas neatly in the center and of the basket, and surround it other nighttime-inspired goodies such as a soft blanket, a teddy bear, or a coordinating cap.

Other gift basket ideas include diapers, pacifiers, stuffed animals, rattles, and other types of baby toys. You could include a soothing lavender-scented baby bath gel and lotion set as well. 

3. Pajama Travel Set 

If you know that the family will be taking a trip in the future, consider designing a gift box filled with travel essentials, including  one or two pairs of pajamas, small containers of diapers and wipes, and storybooks for the car or plane ride. 

As a thoughtful touch, include a few treats, such as pretzels, cookies, or a snack mix for the parents as well. For more information, contact companies like Piper Jade Kids.
