Have you ever been tasked with buying a gift for an expecting mother or someone who recently gave birth? Finding the right gift could be daunting. Surprisingly, many families with newborns don’t have a child monitor. However, baby monitors have evolved since its first inception. We now have touchscreen and some are not limited to range, they even sync with your phone and can output to your smartphone screen display via Internet wherever you are in the world.
Not so long ago video child monitors were non-existent. You couldn’t walk into your local Walmart or Target and pick up a video baby monitor. The only units available were audible. Today we are lucky enough that we are not limited to only listening for our baby’s cries, but now we can watch their every move while they sleep and play, plus do so much more.
Many video monitors come equipped with night vision so you can keep an eye on your child even when the lights are out. Additionally, some monitors allow you to ensure your child’s comfort by monitoring the room’s temperature. Others give you the ability for two-way communication so you can hear your child and your child can also hear you, with the option to mute either end from the control pad. You can even control the volume levels from your touchscreen display or remotely play a musical lullaby to soothe your child. It’s truly amazing how baby monitors have evolved.
Baby monitors make perfect gifts for people with newborns, toddlers, or young children. The gift recipient will be thankful for the gift and will soon realize how useful child monitors really are. Most monitors are full of features to enhance user experience. As you watch your child sleep and play you’ll have the ability to snap still pictures without needing to scramble to find a camera or rush into the room to capture the precious moment. You can even zoom in and get a close up.
The next time you find yourself searching for the perfect baby shower gift consider buying a kid monitor. You can’t go wrong. Trust me, your gift recipient will be happy and appreciative. It’s a thoughtful gift that delivers comfort, peace and security. But, before making your purchase do your due diligence and check to be sure the gift recipient doesn’t already have one. If they do then consider buying just an extra monitor instead of the entire unit. Happy shopping!
