Being an aunt is a prime opportunity to spoil a child you love very much while also mentoring that child as it grows up. She can also help the parents by baby sitting, providing guidance, and being a supportive adult figure in the child's life. Present ideas for a new aunt to give her newborn niece or nephew can range from monetary gifts to toys.

College Contributions

A new aunt can celebrate the birth of her niece or nephew by contributing to or opening a college fund that will grow along with the child. This gift helps provide security and the opportunity for education, an enormous gift as the cost of higher education continues to increase every year.

Jewellery Keepsake

A jewellery keepsake for a new baby can range from a pearl bracelet for a little girl to a pocket watch for a little boy. Jewellery can be inscribed with the baby's initials or a special message from the aunt to her new niece or nephew.

Savings Bond

A savings bond is a monetary gift for a new baby that will mature along with the child. The increased value can be accessed when the child is a teenager or young adult, making a bond an ideal gift to provide a lesson in savings, patience and the U.S. Treasury. The bond can be cashed in later for school expenses or a large present.

Rompers and Clothes

Newborn babies can go through several changes of clothes a day, as they spit up and make messes at regular intervals, so onesies and rompers from a new aunt to a new niece or nephew would be a useful and welcome present. Onesies can even be purchased with inscriptions like "my aunt loves me" and similar phrasing.
