If someone in your family has just revealed they are expecting a baby, it has probably changed your plans in terms of what to buy for them at Christmas. Rather than a gift that is just for the individual or happy couple, why not include something pregnancy-related to help make it all feel real and enhance the experience? We’ve got a few ideas in mind if you are looking for Christmas gifts for parents to be, so please read on to find out more about our heartbeat bears, baby scan gift vouchers and gifts for grandparents.
When a close friend or family member books a baby scan at our ultrasound centre they may ask you to accompany them. Currently we are able to accommodate mums-to-be and their partner, plus up to 4 guests. Whilst you are there, why not speak to a member of our staff about buying a heartbeat bear for the expecting parents? These super-soft heartbeat bears are £28 each and stand at 15 inches high. If you bring them into the scan room we can record the baby’s heartbeat so it can be enjoyed over and over again once you leave the centre.
Baby Scan Gift Vouchers
For an experience parents-to-be can cherish whilst awaiting their new arrival, our baby scan gift vouchers make the perfect gift. In addition to their routine NHS pregnancy care, you can give expectant parents the most beautiful gift ever - the opportunity to see their baby in 3D and 4D detail. We offer a range of scan gift vouchers to accommodate your budget, with prices starting from just £99. Choose from:
Basic 3D/4D Scan Voucher - a great value scan at just £99 which shows parents their baby in 4D imagery on screen, plus five 3D images to take away.
3D & 4D Scan Voucher - Our middle of the road scan gift voucher option is currently discounted to just £149! This scan uses our HD Live tech to give even more realistic 4D imagery on screen and includes a pregnancy report, growth check and baby sexing if required. Parents-to-be can take away ten 3D colour printed images and a USB stick with 4D moving clips.
Luxury 3D & 4D Scan Voucher - this top of the range baby scan gift voucher entitles the parents-to-be to enjoy a 3D and 4D scan where they’ll see detailed and moving images of their baby plus have all clips and images to take home together with a heartbeat bear. We’ll also conduct a pregnancy report, growth check and baby sexing if asked. For a limited time we are also offering a portrait experience with award winning Blink of an Eye Photography, who specialise in newborn, maternity and baby photography, worth £175. Get all of this for just £199 when you choose our Luxury 3D & 4D Scan Voucher.
Gifts for Grandparents to Be
If you are a parent-to-be and will be coming to the Early Life Ultrasound Centre for a scan in the next few weeks, perhaps you’d like to buy some gifts for the grandparents whilst you are here? Our full colour baby scan keyrings and fridge magnets make a lovely gift for those who are also excitedly awaiting your baby’s arrival. All you need to do is choose your favourite image from your scan and we’ll process your chosen keyring or magnet there and then, ready to take home with you.
We’ve also got confetti cannons and gender reveal confetti balloons if you are planning on revealing the gender of your baby over Christmas.
Whether you are looking for Christmas gifts for parents to be, or gifts to share your baby scan images with others, please do ask at your appointment or get in touch with us to find out more.
