We celebrate a lot of things in life. More than just the usual festivities like Christmas, Halloween or Valentine’s Day, there are other events that require the grandest of feasts and merry making. One of these events is the baby shower. Mothers-to-be gather friends and family to celebrate the newest member of the family.
As the invited, we bring gifts to the mothers as a show of support and to share with their happiness. However, thinking about what gift to give is always such a challenge, some of us cannot even think of proper gifts to give during the holidays, what more a baby that has not been born yet. You can choose to buy flowers for the new born baby and have it arranged in a unique way using different sizes and shades of colour.
But what else can you bring to the table? Remember that the mom already has some of the basics covered like shoes and clothes. Here we will list down a few suggestions, something you can consider while you are shopping for baby shower gifts.
Pacifier that closes when dropped
As babies grow older, they become really talkative. They might not be saying anything intelligible, but they are always telling you something. Not only that, they always pick up random objects they want to put in their mouths. For this reason, their pacifiers always drop to the floor, and mom have to wash them in warm water all the time. To save them from this problem, why not give them a pacifier that closes when it is dropped to the floor?
RaZbaby’s Keep-it-Kleen Pacifiers does just that. It closes on the nipple like a shell when babies drop it, effectively protecting from germs and bacteria. More than that, you are helping your friend with one less trouble to think about.
Baby leash to keep them from getting lost
Pretty sure it is almost virtually impossible for your friend’s kid to get lost, she will be watching them like a hawk. But just in case they need the extra help, especially when going grocery shopping, a baby leash helps keep the kids in tow. You do not need to buy the ordinary baby leash, you can get the ones with a bag at the end so they can wear as normal. It comes in different patterns or animal designs, so your kids will not feel like they are being tethered.
We did say clothes are already covered by the mom, but colourful onesies are too cute to pass up. You can get them in different patterns and designs so that the baby can look hip and cool in the stroller. The best part about onesies is you can always order them from artists and not get the generic onesies being sold in stores. For instance, you can go to online stores like Etsy, a website that offers handmade and unique crafts. Order as much as you can for a price that worth seeing the baby in adorable, one-of-a-kind apparel.
Portable fabric high chair
One of the things your friends is going to have trouble with is finding a restaurant she likes to go to that has high chairs. Because let’s face it, not all restaurants offer high chairs. Make it easy for the mom to bring her baby with her with a portable fabric high chair.
The Portable Easy Seat by Cozy Cover is a fabric you can fasten around your baby and on normal chairs. They can easily bring this seat cover and not worry about where she can go to for a bite to eat.
No picture can compare to a mother happily awaiting the birth of their baby. Make it extra special with unique gift finds, ones that will make her life convenient and will keep the baby safe and healthy.
