The Six Baby Shower Gifts That Every Mom Will Love
Do you need a great baby shower gift and have no idea?
Normally pregnant women and especially new mothers that have no experience what to buy for their baby need some help or tips. The best of all for them is to get few of the baby things they really need from others as a gift during the baby shower party.
The baby shower gift ideas are great for those who are guest in a baby shower party or for moms to create their own gift registry.
Here are 6 presents that any mother will most certainly be appreciative of:
Diapers and Baby Care Products
Diapers and more diapers!
That is quite a bland gift but a very much needed gift. I never heard any mom to complain about having too many diapers for her new-born baby when comes home. To make diapers snazzy you have to dress it up a bit. You can find diaper cakes in lots of gift sites. Some come with as many as 150 diapers, plus booties, bibs and tons of other essentials for baby, but all in the shape of an all so cute cake.
An extra gifts basket with baby care products is something very nice and useful.
Blankets, Socks and Shoes
Chances are they are going to get tons of these. However, these gifts tend to come in new-born or 3 months sizes which after a few weeks probably won’t serve its purpose anymore. Making this a great gift is if you buy them in larger sizes. After a few months, mom still has brand new gifts for the baby to enjoy.
Pamper products for Mom
The last few weeks of pregnancy are very uncomfortable and can be hard on Mom. Let Mom have the star treatment as well. Once the baby is born, Mom’s 15 minutes of fame are over.
A savings bond is a great way to help invest in the child’s future. While everyone is thinking of now you are thinking ahead. It may also help jumpstart parents to jumpstart on baby’s future if they haven’t already.
You can never go wrong with a gift card (certificate). Mom and Dad get to choose what they want and you gave them that satisfaction. The obvious choice for a gift certificate would where the registry is set up. If they do not have a registry set up, good choices could include their favourite supermarket (baby milk, diapers etc.) or baby store. Another gift certificate idea could be a check card gift certificate. It works like a credit card and can be used anywhere.
Normally I don’t suggest buying clothing unless the parents-to-be suggested so. Chances are they have already gone shopping and couldn’t resist those tiny adorable outfits. That’s why I left this gift at the end to finish my article.
Baby Clothes are “A Perfect Baby Shower Gift”?
Does a new mother need also clothes as baby shower gift? Consider all the options when shopping for baby clothing!
Shopping for baby clothes and accessories can be so much fun, especially when you are shopping for a baby shower gift and for someone you love! Baby clothes make great gifts for new parents.
Baby clothing from boutiques are very popular gifts. Many even have gift registries for expectant parents. Most larger towns and cities have these specialty boutiques, but these can also be found in quaint smaller towns, too.
The nice thing about boutique clothing as a baby shower gift is that the parents might not want to spend the extra money on clothing for the baby with all the other expenses they will have. Try to pick out something unique. Most parents get plenty of onesies and sleepers!
When you are wondering of what to buy or what size to pick, stick with dresses for girls and overalls for boys. Because my sister for example had big babies and most new-born clothing didn’t fit her children.
I suggest buying size 3 or 6 months, keeping in mind many children wear the next size up from their age. For example, a three month old might wear a size of six months old baby and vice versa. Remember to think about what season it will be when purchasing bigger sizes. A nice long-sleeved outfit won’t be used if it would fit the baby in the summer.
Shopping online for baby clothes or other baby things can get you some really good deals without the frustrations of being at the mall. You’re also more likely to get a unique gift online.
Purchase around and look also for special promotions and free shipping. I like to use sometimes Amazon whenever I shop online and get some extra discount on my purchase.
Internet shopping is perfect if you can’t attend the shower. Most stores with registries make ordering simple. They can, in just a few clicks, have your order shipped directly to the new parents’ house.
Baby sleepers and gowns are the most popular baby shower gifts. While necessary, try pairing them with another more unique gift like an embroidered burp cloth, blanket and a diaper bag or even a pair of baby cute shoes.
Tiny baby slippers always get “oooh’s” and “aaah’s” at a shower. To make a more substantial gift, add a cute little hat and some socks. Infant clothing is almost always a gift parents will get lots of use out of.
When possible, always include a gift receipt just in case there was a duplicate gift or if the baby’s gender turns out to be different than expected!
Baby shower gifts can be expensive and fancy or simple and inexpensive. Either way, parents will appreciate the thoughtful and useful gift for their little one.
