Gifts for Intended Parents: A Holiday Shopping Guide to Fit Any Budget

Our gestational carriers are inspired to give the ultimate gift – the gift of family. During this season of giving, a surrogate may also be inspired to purchase a special gift for her intended parent(s). Gestational Carriers are not expected to purchase a gift for their Intended Parents, you may find yourself wanting to honor them with a present this holiday season. While the pressure to find the perfect gift can be daunting, Family Choice Surrogacy is here to help you find the perfect gift idea.

Prior to gifting, consider your relationship with the Intended Parents and whether a gift would be appropriate.  If you are still getting to know each other, then perhaps hold off until you’ve built a stronger connection. But, if your relationship has grown close, here are some “Gifts for Intended Parents: A Holiday Shopping Guide to Fit Any Budget.”

Gifts for IP(s)



Christmas Card or Letter –  Sometimes the best gift you can offer is one from the heart.  Spend some quality time writing a heartfelt message.  It will really go a long way to show that you care.

Soundwave Keychain – A personalized keychain that shows the soundwave of the baby’s heartbeat and a QR code so the parents can listen to it at any time.
