International gifts and giveaways for friends and the mother, when a baby is born
A wristband with the individual name of the baby is a traditional gift. What are we giving in other European and international countries when a baby is born? Therefore we asked our doctors and nurses:
In Croatia it is use to put money under the pillow of the baby, nowadays many relatives are as well buying toys and baby wear.
A new trend there is baby wear out of organic fabric and cotton.
In Italy it is tradition to give golden wristbands, coins and spoons with the name of the baby.
Nowadays the Italian “nonni” open a bank account or buys shares and starts a life insurance.
Quite often the relatives buy as well expensive and useful things like a baby-buggy, a car-chair or baby wear.
Traditional gifts are: teddies, silver spoons baby overalls. For the first visit they give “Kandeel” what is a Dutch speciality for the parents, made of eggs and brandy, which is served warm or hot. In special “Kandeel”-museums you will find a great variety of “Kandeel”-cups. When the queen Beatrix 1938 got born, lots of visitors were drinking “Kandeel”, which is popular ever since.
There is a saying: Kandeel is good for the mother-milk production of the “Mama”.
Polish parents are writing a list and friends and relative have then the opportunity to buy useful things, quite often they buy a baby- car-seat nowadays.
When the baby gets its name in the church, a symbolic gift is a silver spoon, which should bring joy and luck.
