Bargain Baby: New Baby Gifts Under $20

A new baby, squee! Hold your horses- we know you want to give the most precious and thoughtful gift possible for this new little person, but here are a few words to the wise before you start loading up that shopping cart. 1)This kid is going to get more stuff than he will ever use. 2)This kid has no idea how much you spent on that onesie he just pooped on. 3)New parents are easily overwhelmed with all the new stuff. Given all of that, try to reign it in when giving gifts to new little ones. Of course your gift can still be thoughtful and unique, but you don’t need to bankrupt yourself doing so. The sentiment and gesture mean more to the parents than the price tag. Here is a list of ideas that will thrill newborns and parents alike, while keeping the tab under a cool $20.
