Browse our baby care shop for inspiration as you go about putting together the ideal gift for your family or friend. Check out these tips for choosing the perfect baby shower gifts.
Consider Child Safety Products
We often think about adorable stuffed animals and cute booties when we envision a baby shower. While these gifts are definitely fun to give and receive, don’t forget a few of the more practical items on the list.
If the woman who is expecting is a new mother, child safety products are a must. Odds are good she is busy preparing her home for her little one and could use the help. From cabinet locks for when the baby gets a little older to gentle nursery cleaning supplies, the right products will go a long way in ensuring that the new baby is welcomed into a safe and clean home.
Help Them Stock Up On Diapers And Wipes
Another practical item that any expecting parent will love is a few extra cases of baby wipes and diapers. Anyone who has raised a child knows that you can never have too many of these valuable items.
Think ahead for the expecting mom and purchase baby diapers in a variety of sizes. This will ensure that as the months speed by and the baby continues to grow, there is always an emergency diaper or two on hand.
Shop For The Next Stage Of Life
Newborn baby clothes are beyond adorable. With their itty bitty proportions and adorable prints, it is easy to get caught up in buying a slew of newborn items. However, babies outgrow this stage seemingly overnight! While it is always nice to include a few newborn items for those first few weeks at home, don’t forget to think about the next stages of life.
Shop for clothes that will be useful in a few months. Consider some toys that aren’t just for a newborn. It never hurts to help an expecting mom for the stages ahead. In fact, for many moms, the first few months fly by in a blur and they never have enough time to feel prepared as their child grows. These items you buy now could be a lifesaver four sleep-deprived months down the road.
Don’t Forget The Mom
Lastly, while a baby shower is absolutely all about the baby, it should also be all about the mom. She is, after all, the one carrying this new child and providing it with life. Don’t forget to spoil the expecting mother on this special day. Along with all the great gifts you find for the soon to be born baby, add in some treats for the mother. Things like bubble bath or a few bars of her favorite chocolate can be a great way to let her know she is loved and cared for during this important time.
