amazing wipes or just a package of nice, organic baby washcloths) and a spray bottle of Booty Luster packaged prettily in a sweet little basket makes for a thoughtful gift. A Cloth Diapering Care Kit - If you've helped out after a family welcomes their newborn home, odds are you've helped with laundry. If so, think about the kind of detergent they use (or start up a conversation of "I've read so many different opinions on washing cloth diapers; what's your method?" in a totally casual way) and package it up along with some wool dryer balls and maybe a diaper pail liner and you've got a thoughtful, practical gift option. Cloth Diapering-Friendly Balms - No matter what you give, toss in your favorite diaper rash treatment. Our favorite happens to be Booty Love, but even if you use a homemade option, include a little bottle and the fact that you "get" the whole "cloth diapering thing" will warm the recipient's heart. Your Absolute Favorite Diaper - Whether it's a Thirsties or not, a new cloth diaper is an AMAZING gift for any cloth diapering parents. (We, of all people, know the value of a good diaper, and knowing that it's got your own personal stamp of approval means the world.) Consider the new wintry Thirsties prints, Scarlet and Winter Woods for a festive, fun twist. An Adorable Wet Bag Gift Bag - No matter what you give, skip the wrapping paper or gift bag in favor of a wet bag - it'll reduce waste AND give the parents a great additional gift. And, by the way, remember that wet bags aren't just for storing dirty dipes! We use ours about a hundred different ways. Diaper Service - If you've got the funds and are in an area that offers it, try looking up a reliable diaper service to take the chore away for a month or so. My uncle did this for my mother after each of her four children and it was a lifesaver, she recalls. What's more thoughtful than that? (Just make sure that they adhere to the warranty of the family's favorite diapers to avoid voiding the warranty.) A Thoughtful Gift - Odds are you know why the family cloth diapers. We all have a different reason (we appreciate the cost effectiveness but also the eco-friendliness), so take this into account when purchasing any gifts. If the family values practicality, don't go overboard with a million toys and outfits - try the "one toy, one book, one outfit" approach (or just one of the above if you're not as close; I only do this for family, usually). If the family is eco-conscious, make sure the toy is either made of recycled materials, has strict EPA standards, and/or is made from eco-friendly materials. In general, use your cloth diapering knowledge to help inform your gift selection.
