If you have been invited to a baby shower, you are probably wondering what you can get the new mom and her baby. To make sure your gift hits the right spot, here are some of my favorite ideas. Hopefully, you will be able to find some cool inspiration in this list of presents!
Once the baby arrives, your friend will be very excited to let all of her relatives and friends know about the birth of her child. What better way to do this than send out some cute note cards? You can find these in many stores. You might like to buy ones that have space for a small photo stuck on the front. That way, the new parents can attach a picture of their new baby for everyone to see!
Lots of parents love remembering their children as a baby. To make sure those memories don’t fade, why not gift your friend a memory book that they can fill in with little stories about the first few months of their child’s life. Lots of memory books also double up as photo albums so there will be plenty of space for your friend to stick in loads of cute baby pictures! You can find different styles of memory books on websites that specialize in baby shower gift ideas.
Your friend will receive a lot of baby clothes at the baby shower. There is nothing wrong with buying clothes, of course, but if you want to get something a bit different, why not think about buying some baby pajamas?! If you are worried that some others might buy the baby new pajamas, you could think about buying a SleepSack. These are fluffy sacks that babies sleep in. They are super warm and cozy, helping both mother and baby get a good night’s sleep!
Is your friend planning on breastfeeding her baby? If so, then why not help her out by buying some breastfeeding equipment? There is a lot that you can choose from, including nursing pillows. These are large pillows designed for the baby to lay on while it is being breastfed. You might also want to buy them a breast pump so that they can extract their milk and put it in bottles for whenever they enjoy a day out with their baby. This is a much requested baby shower gift.
Personalized Photo Frames
There is another great way the new parents can remember their child as a super cute baby. And that is through photos! It’s a great idea to buy you friend some personalized photo frames in which they can display pretty pictures of their new baby. Many engravers will etch special messages into silver or gold photo frames. How about getting the due date etched on? Alternatively, you could leave a space for the parents to etch on the name and date of birth of the baby.
Hopefully, this blog post will have given you plenty of ideas for your friend’s baby shower gifts! Time to go shopping now!
