How To Select The Perfect Baby Gift For Any Co-Worker
Welcoming a new baby into the world is an exciting time for all involved. There's so much to plan and prepare, not just for the expecting parents, but for those closest to them as well.
How involved you are in this wonderful time will depend on how close you are with the mum or dad to be; But even if your relationship with the expecting parents is only professional, giving them a baby gift is a thoughtful way to wish them the very best as they enter into a new life chapter.
This puts you in the tricky situation of having to navigate office appropriate gifting, while still showing how much you care, and creating the right balance between professional and personal style.
Here at Tiamo Baby we know a thing or two about putting together the perfect baby gift, so let us help you navigate this delicate yet exciting time.
Below you'll find the perfect newborn gift for any co-worker.
The Perfect Present For When They Won’t Tell You The Gender
Needless to say, it's a lot easier to buy gifts when you know the gender of the little bundle of joy coming into the world, but that doesn't mean it's impossible when you don't.
White, grey and beige are good choices if you're looking to buy clothing or toys but another great option, that's often overlooked, are books. Not only are they a great educational resource to help little ones get the best start to life, reading is proven to be a great bonding experience for parents and babies. So while you won't get credit as the stylist for that adorable photo on Instagram, you will be the one who helps the new family enjoy precious moments together.
If you're looking for something a little larger and extra special, we have a great range of gender neutral gift boxes. Our Little Surprise Gift Boxes are full of books, cuddly toys and other accessories that any family would love to receive, making them the perfect baby gift for those who are close to your heart, but are keeping their cards close to theirs.
The Perfect Gift For The Co-Worker Who "Doesn't Want Anything"
Let's be honest, "I don't want anything" hardly ever actually means I don't want anything.
Most of the time when expecting parents say this, they're being polite and don't want to cause too much of a fuss, which is why a gorgeous keepsake baby journal is the perfect present. They're a small, thoughtful and classy gift that will be loved and cherished for many years to come.
A blanket or wrap is also a good option as a baby can never have too many of these!
An Amazing Baby Gift For The Co-Worker You Love
When you're in a professional setting, it's often frowned upon to be "too close" to your co-workers, which can leave you feeling a bit lost if you want to get something extra special that is still work appropriate.
In this situation, we recommend our All Wrapped Up Gift Box range. These gift boxes are curated to bring together gorgeous baby items, beautifully presented in a natural cardboard gift box, and finished off with a premium gift wrap sash and perfect little bow. It will be love at first sight before they even open the gift box!
Something Extra Special On Behalf Of The Whole Team
If you have a slightly bigger budget and you're looking to show appreciation for this co-worker on behalf of the whole team, you'll be sure to find the perfect gift within our Bundle Of Love Gift Box range.
These gift boxes are packed with beautiful and practical items every new bub needs, carefully tucked away in an elegant white gift box and finished off with a perfect bow. There is also the option to personalise the front of the box for an extra special touch, because we all know personalised gifts leave a lasting impression.
The Perfect Eco-Friendly Baby Gift For The Environmentally Conscious Co-Worker
This co-worker cares more about the environment than any material thing and they've possibly even requested that they only receive sustainable gifts.
In this instance, we recommend Bamboo Dinnerware. All the dinnerware sets we stock are completely free from plastics, 100% biodegradable and ethically sourced from sustainable bamboo plantations.
And remember, all of our gift boxes are lovingly hand packed to ensure they are perfectly presented. They also come with a complimentary gift card, and we also offer flat rate postage of $4.95 Australia wide, making it easy to send the special gift directly to your colleague's home.
Hopefully with these suggestions, we have helped to take the guess work out of choosing the perfect baby gift for your co-worker. However if you're still a little stumped, feel free to contact us and we can work with you to create something special.
We're mums ourselves, and have worked in a number of corporate environments so we are always happy to help out with a recommendation or two.
