New parents are always looking for trendy baby items that provide comfort while making their life easier. While most trendy items for babies are organic made or natural products, they are also adorable, tailored to safety and handy.
Even in these tough economic times, retailers know finding the right wholesale baby gift items are a way to capitalize on consumers in a stable market.
So how do retailers decide what baby products are right for their target market? Think like a parent, grandparent or gift giver.
Choose Baby Comfort
Babies need and desire comfort, at least that’s what people buying baby items believe. Baby comfort items include: bedding, bath towels, hoodies, clothing and organic skin care products such as lotion and soaps.
Choosing essential comfort products such as crib items or baby clothing will ensure your baby items sales stay on target. Don’t forget to include the basic comfort items that make parents feel safe. Protecting their child is their number one goal.
Products that range from organic baby blankets to crib safety bumpers or even chair covers for shopping carts to stroller covers that keep baby warm are basic must have items.
Why? Because comfort and safety are not only for baby but for parents as well. Think of the parents’ perception of safety and comfort and you’ll find sales ring up quickly.
Baby Is Trendy
Trendy items are not just cute little gimmicky items that provide “oohs” and “ahhhs”, they can also provide comfort and safety.
Just because an item is labeled eco-friendly doesn’t make it trendy. However because of the movement towards being “green” and environmentally conscious, several eco-friendly baby items are becoming trendy. One of the rising eco-friendly baby trends involves organic clothing and lotions.
The trendy baby is concerned with giving baby a good footing in life – literally. Specialty shoes that help your baby learn to walk correctly or educational toys are making trend setting strides in the baby products market.
In your product mix, you’ll want to include a few items that called “disposable” or “impulse buys”.
Hair bows, baby shoes that look like little loafers or cowboy boots, hats, tee-shirts with cute saying are not “need items” but “want items”.
Seriously, customers can not just walk by or pass up items that scream “This is so cute!! Buy me!”
Carrying these types of impulse baby items gives you the opportunity to up-sell and appeal to the hidden wants of your customers.
The baby product market is huge. As a retailer, you need to tailor your products to fit your specific customer base. Watch the trends. Look for items that please parents on a comfort and safety level. Introduce items with a “ohhh that is so cute and adorable” or “that is such a cool idea, I just have to buy that item”. Follow these suggestions and these products will deliver the sales.

I love the little baby shoes you have pictured in this post as well as the sweater. Are these available in the wholesale section. I couldn\’t seem to locate them. Would love to carry something like this in my online shop.
I passed your question on to Beba Bean the wholesaler who has the sweater and booties. They should email you some information. Just let me know if you need help with any other products.

Great ideas. I never would have thought of that. The one I made when my kiddo was born she uses more now (and she’s almost 5) than we ever did when she was a baby. It’s the perfect for her now.
