time the last item is pulled from the wrapping, this is what the receiver of
your gift from Olive & Cocoa can look forward to.
An Essential Gift
As they say, you can never have too many of the essentials! Essential baby items like cozy blankets, bibs,
bottles, and diapers make great gifts that are sure to be used on a daily basis. These luxury baby gifts and items
are especially helpful to new parents that are welcoming their first baby and will help them be prepared for the
little one's arrival.
A Keepsake Gift
The birth of a new baby is an important life occasion to be celebrated. A thoughtful keepsake gift such as a baby
book to document their first special moments, classic silver rattle, pearl baby bracelet, or luxury baby blankets
personalized with the baby's name and birth date make beautiful sentiments that the family is sure to cherish
through the years.
A Gift of Learning
Little ones are always learning! The gift of a storybook encourages bonding time
between the parent and baby, and stimulates knowledge and creativity. A children's book is sure to be shared over
and over again, creating sweet memories of the time spent reading together.
A Fashionable Gift
An adorable baby outfit is always
a fantastic option for girls or boys. When choosing to give clothing, be sure to
consider the season and size. For instance, if you'd like to give a summery romper, but it's still January, you'll
want to consider what the baby's size will be when warmer months arrive.
A Gender Neutral Gift
If the parents are waiting 'til the birth to find out the baby's gender, selecting a gender-neutral gift is
important. Choose a baby gift in soft light colors such as white, crème, or yellow, as these shades can work for a
boy or girl. Sticking with simple designs free of too many frills or graphics also helps ensure the gift will be
appropriate for either gender.
A Group Gift
Giving a baby gift as a group can be a great option, especially when gifting to a co-worker, someone in your
activity group, or even a neighbor. Invite everyone in the office, department, club, or group to contribute if
choose, and allow them to decide the amount they'd like to pitch in. Let everyone know the gift you plan on
purchasing, and the deadline for contributing. Be sure to include the names of everyone that pitched in on the
