The holiday season is coming, but families grow all year round!
As we turn the corner into fall and winter, mentions of the holidays start to creep into our feed. Advertising, store displays, even the music on the radio reminds us that gift-giving season will soon be here!
But aside from the holidays, let’s also chat about how Thirsties can be perfect for *any* growing family, all year round!
Do you know of a family that is adding another baby soon? They may be expecting, adopting, fostering, or helping with a little one that will need some diapers and supplies. We are frequently asked, “At the $50 or $100 level, what makes a great gift for a growing family?”
And here are our thoughts
$50 Gift you could invest in:
- A natural newborn all in one
- A stay dry newborn all in one
- A mini wet bag
This gives the family two diaper changes every day, plus a way to tote the soiled diapers while out and about. For the newborn stage, this could add up to over 200 diaper changes that are “covered,” talk about thrifty! If you want to increase the gift to $100, you could double the diapers or add:
- Two duo wraps in Size 1
- Three Size 1 Duo Inserts
This gives the family three more changes, for a total of 5 a day (and possibly up to 600 diapers out of the trash in the newborn stage!)
Is their new addition past the newborn stage? Or maybe an older child out of diapers? Maybe they already have a supply of disposables and want to explore other reusable options?
At the $50 level, you could introduce them to:
- A simple tote
- A pocket bib
- A deluxe wet bag
Perfect for all of the “stuff” older babies and children need for family adventures! This provides a way to carry soiled items, wet items, sport items. It offers a comfortable way to keep clothing clean while at a restaurant or relative’s house, and a larger bag to keep it all together!
If you wished to increase it to $100, you could add
- A clutch
- A wet/dry bag
- A simple pouch
- 3 Sandwich/Snack bag
And now they have a way to make snack time accessible without plastic baggies, a way to eliminate ziplocks for the diaper bag and backpack, and preschool or daycare is now able to send soiled outfits back and forth without single-use plastic bags.
And if you are eyeing the holidays…
Wet Bags make beautiful, sturdy, and reusable gift wrapping ^
Get creative, get crafty, get Thirsties to give the gift of reusables!
Totes and wet bags are a great gift for any mom/parent, love the versatility!
Great ideas!! Even if a family member or friend doesn’t intend to cloth diaper their baby, I love to give them a wet bag, bib, or even cloth wipes. The tote bags or even a snack bag or 2 would be great for anyone! They are so cute!
Great list, I think I will use these ideas to buy my friend something for her new baby.
I love all of these ideas; I’m going to drop this link every time someone asks me what we want for Christmas, too! ;)
Great gift ideas!
