Is your friend throwing a baby shower and someone already stole the idea for a stroller? Don’t worry; you’re not out of options.
There are many practical stroller gifts that you can get for a baby. Not only do stroller accessories provide babies with a smoother ride, but they also help parents manage their strollers.
So without any further ado, here are the best accessories you can get as stroller gifts.
It’s always a good idea to have a weather cover on cloudy days that you’ll be spending outside.
Even with a canopy, a stroller might not be enough protection against rain.
Make sure to get one with ventilated sides and a front window.
A stroller organizer is the ideal way to get all of a parent’s essentials such as keys, phone, and water bottle all together in a single, easily-accessible place.
With stroller hooks, the more is always the merrier
They’re quick and easy to add to any stroller.
Moreover, they make it incredibly easy to hold groceries, shopping bags, a diaper bag, or anything a parent has to carry around all day as they’re out with their child.
Heavy-duty aluminum ones with foam grips would make the best choice as they’re firm and can handle the weight but also don’t slide around.
There’s no doubt that kids will get thirsty and hungry as the parent is out running errands.
Having a snack tray is the perfect way to fill up on small snacks and bottles to keep the little ones refreshed and full.
Kids tend to fling their toys around which obligates the parents to fetch them.
To prevent this, you can get a toy that gets stuck onto the stroller. The parents will appreciate it in the long run.
This one is ideal for parents that have two children.
A stroller board is the perfect add-on to a single stroller. It accommodates the older child that likes to walk but gets tired sometimes.
Moreover, it’s an alternative that is much more affordable than getting a double stroller.
Travel bags are something every parent with a stroller comes to need, but not many think of.
A travel bag helps protect your stroller from the rough circumstances of airplane travel.
You should get one that is water-resistant and made of heavy-duty material to shield the stroller from any damage or even stains.
A Smartphone Holder
I think this one is especially useful for parents that like to explore and go on hiking adventures.
Even jogging around would be more fun if they have a map open on their smartphone.
And if not for looking at maps, checking through e-mails while having a casual stroll in the park would also be helpful and time-efficient.
A Light Umbrella
This one is another practical choice for those living in colder countries with lots of rain.
Not only that, umbrellas can be great shelters from the sun on scorching days. So even have UVP50+ sun protection and enable the user to swivel them according to the sun’s direction.
Getting a one-click umbrella can be a great and practical add-on to a baby stroller.
For places with lower temperatures, muffs are a must. The handlebars of the stroller can get quite cold and pushing it may become uncomfortable.
Muffs that can attach to the handlebars and have room for the parent to slip coat sleeves into the cuffs would make an excellent gift.
A Comfortable Snug
A snug insert is a convenient gift for strollers, especially if it’s the baby’s first year.
It provides the baby with extra comfort and prevents them from slipping and the needed head and neck support.
Make sure you get one that’s soft and machine-washable to make its maintenance easier for the parents.
Sometimes, parents might want to go inside a place where a stroller would be too much of a hassle to push.
Leaving the stroller outside would be a great option, but only if the parents have a lock to keep their stroller safe.
An expandable cable would be the best to be able to lock the stroller to different objects such as a signpost, a bike rack, or a nearby bench.
If the parent goes out during the night or at dusk, buggy lights will make them and their baby more visible to cars and cyclists.
