So you’ve been invited to a baby shower that’s being held for a beloved family member or friend, a neighbor, co-worker or acquaintance. Selecting the right kind of gift is important as it says a lot about you and it defines the relationship you share with the person, your personal style and taste, and what you’re trying to convey with this particular gift.
As with wedding gifts, a lot of expectant moms have a baby shower registry where they list what they really need and want. Babies are surprisingly expensive propositions and, tiny as they are, they need a lot of stuff! If a gift registry option is available, it makes things simpler as you can pick the gift that best fits your budget and taste. It also ensures that you don’t get a myriad of items that are duplicated or unusable. Witty and quirky gifts are all very well, but let’s face it, in these times of financial belt tightening, we’d all prefer a practical baby blanket to an electronic crying baby analyzer!
Some great baby shower gifts might be:
Homemade & Heartfelt: Hand-knitted booties, caps, mittens, blankets and sweaters are a tested favorite, especially in families. Family keepsakes and heirlooms that have been passed down through the generations are a great gift; christening robes, blankets, crochet bedspreads, etc. are things that will be joyfully received. If you’re a talented knitter or seamstress, go ahead and create something practical and pretty which will strengthen the bonds of love between you, the baby and the new parents. Just remember to use top quality materials to keep baby safe and healthy.
Gift Coupons: These allow the parents to make their own selection either immediately or at a later date. You can give gift coupons from reputed baby and mommy stores, as well as online retailers.
Practical and Fun: Baby month stickers are a wonderful gift to record baby’s growth over the months and in today’s environment of social networking, this allows parents to upload pictures of their precious baby every month and record his/her progress. Baby books, journals, calendars and packs of birth-announcement cards, thank-you notes, etc. are always welcome. Photo frames, quality baby clothes, portable food mills, strollers, baby monitors, cradles, bouncers, walkers or strollers, foldable traveling cribs, carseats, food or drink holders, cutlery, baby nail-trimmers are all great options available as baby shower gifts.
Whatever the size, shape and price of your gift, ensure that it’s the best quality, made of baby-safe materials, well-finished and produced by a reputable baby product manufacturer.
