Wunderkids Newborn Gift Guide: The Best Unique Newborn Gift Ideas

Welcoming a newborn into the world is one of the most joyful and special experiences parents will experience in their lifetime. Whether they’re first-time parents or bringing a new sibling home, watching people you love grow their family is a one-of-a-kind moment.

Newborns bring so much excitement to a home, and when it comes to showing your support to the people in your life, the right gift can say everything. With so many baby products on the market, knowing exactly what to give your friend or family member to celebrate this occasion can feel overwhelming. The good news is that gift-giving doesn’t have to be stressful. It can be fun!

Wunderkids’s unique newborn gift guide is designed to help you find a creative and memorable nursery essential for the new little one in your life.

Educational and Developmental Toys

The first few years of a baby’s life are some of the most crucial development years. This is where they learn to explore tummy time, develop their senses, and eventually learn to crawl and walk. The right toys and accessories are an important part of the puzzle and can help them learn in a safe environment.


Tummy time is a crucial step in any child’s development. From newborn to the three-month stage, little ones learn to strengthen their neck, shoulders, and chest muscles. In order for them to do this safely, having a soft surface underneath their delicate frame is important.

Playmats are an excellent tool to help babies explore. A non toxic play mat for babies from Wunderkids is designed with nine layers of foam egg box-shape technology and comes in soft neutral colours — all the makings for a unique newborn baby gift that your friends or family members will undoubtedly appreciate.

Climbing Blocks and Gyms

As little ones begin to develop their motor skills, they need tools to help them build strength, height, and depth perception. To help them learn about their surroundings, foam climbing blocks are ideal to add to any newborn baby gifts. Climbing shows babies' ability to solve problems and navigate their bodies on uneven surfaces. Wunderkid’s foam blocks are made of soft velvet material and designed with durability in mind.

If you’re designing a customized baby gift and looking for something that can be used during the toddler stage and beyond, a pikler gym from True Little North is the perfect addition. This durable, ethically sourced gym is made with a water-based, non-toxic finish, allowing kids to explore and make lasting memories.

Baby Mobiles

Baby mobiles are a staple in any nursery space. Whether it’s a set of stars and the moon or an array of wildlife creatures, a baby mobile can help stimulate brain functions and help develop crucial motor skills. If you’re considering adding this to your baby gift idea, ask the parents-to-be what their nursery design is going to look like so that you can find the perfect mobile to match the space.

Furniture and Accessories

If you’re looking to add something grander to your customized baby gift, consider including a special piece of furniture or a playtime accessory. These larger-scale pieces are a great way to show your loved ones how excited you are that they’re welcoming a new baby into the world.

Indoor Swing

Playtime doesn’t have to be exclusively outside — you can easily bring the swings into the home. A Kantalou baby swing from Wunderkids is a 3-in-1, handcrafted swing that’s designed to keep babies safe and comfortable. Watch the little one in your life smile and giggle while also learning to develop their motor skills and balance.

With a soft nylon rope, environmentally-conscious fabric lining, and a neutral, modern design to match any home decor, this is a unique baby gift idea that they’re going to love.


When little ones start crawling and zooming around the house, having a dedicated space where they can learn and play is essential. A baby play pen allows parents to create a space that acts as an all-in-one solution. Our playpens come with a double lock system and anti-slip pads, ensuring kids are safe and giving the parents the peace of mind they need.

Our playpens come with 12 easily assembled pieces and are available in mixed grey and plain white — so even if you don’t know the exact aesthetic of the parent’s home, your gift for the baby will match any decor they have.
