10 Practical Baby Sprinkle Gift Ideas

When choosing a baby sprinkle gift your selection will be different from what you buy for a baby shower.

As a baby sprinkle celebrates the upcoming birth of a 2nd, 3rd, 4th or more children, the parents to be will have different requirements.

They would have received most of what they needed at the baby shower. The parents would most likely have all the bigger and more expensive items left over from the first baby. So it’s best to concentrate on smaller items that are considered consumables. 

Also, as you might have attended the first baby shower you aren’t expected to spend as much on a gift. But, the baby sprinkle isn’t about gift-giving. It is more about spending time with family and friends. The recipient would much rather be in your company than receive a gift. 

That being said, if you do want to give something we have compiled a list of baby sprinkle gift ideas. The majority of the products are under $30 and would be useful for parents having their second baby.

1. Bibs

Babies use bibs and a lot of them. Buying bibs for a baby sprinkle is a great idea as they are practical and stylish. Especially when the baby starts teething they will be in high demand.

2. Nappies

Yes, they can be a boring gift but they are practical. As a new parent having lots of nappies around the house is a must. The last thing you want to do is be running to the chemist in the middle of the night to pick up more nappies.

3. Breast pads

This present is something for the mums. They will love this gift once the baby starts feeding. The nursery pads will help absorb leaking breast milk and help protect their clothes. The bamboo backing is soft and gentle on the mums’ nipples too.

4. Bath Toys

Bath time is a great time to bond and play. And bath toys are a great present for a baby sprinkle as previous bath toys will be a little worse for wear. And we love the Oli and Carol range. They are made from 100% natural rubber from the Hevea Brasiliensis tree. These are then hand-painted using natural materials. The best thing about the Oli and Carol bath toys is that they don’t have holes in them. This stops water from going inside, making them mould free.

5. Micki toys

Micki is a Swedish designer who specialises in wooden toys for babies and toddlers. They are simple yet elegant and help a baby develops their motor skills. This would make an ideal second baby present. Most likely all the toys brought for baby number one are old and in poor condition.

6. Teething Toys

Bunny teether toys are a great baby sprinkle gift as they will be used around the 4-month mark. You will want to get the second baby this type of gift as you wouldn’t want them chewing on an already chewed toy.

7. Hair Accessories

For girls, baby headbands are a fabulous present whether it’s for baby number 1, 2 or 3. It gives them their own style rather than hand me downs from their big sister. 

8. Suction Bowls

As a parent, this was the single best gift I received. Although over the $30 budget it is worth it. The suction cup on the bottom of the bowl helps prevent bowls of food from being knocked on the floor. And since the parents already have children there is enough mess to clean up already.

9. Books

What better gift to give than a book to help them start off life on the right track. There is a book for any baby girl or boy to enjoy and each has an educational life lesson. Books are a practical and thoughtful present that is ideal as a baby sprinkle gift.

10. Burp cloth

Practical and affordable, burping towels are a great gift for any parent with a new baby. The absorbent backing and beautiful prints make this an easy gift to love.
