Baby showers are fast becoming a new trend for the UK. They have been around for quite some time in America. This is where the mum to be can get all her lovely friend sand family together to celebrate the impending arrival of a new baby. Depending on how you want your baby shower to be, you could be playing games about guessing the gender or babies weight. You could also have name suggestions and a chance to hear some stories from other mothers. The done thing is to attend with a gift. Most people will buy something the new mother may need for the new baby, but even then you might be stuck for ideas. So if you have something like this to attend then my gift ideas will hopefully inspire you.
A Nursing Pillow can be a great gift for a new mother. Whether they plan on breastfeeding or not these pillows provide additional support when feeding your baby. They are also very versatile items as they can be used to make sleeping with a bump more comfortable. Along with support for when placing your baby on play mats. You can get them in all different styles and colours so no doubt you will be able to pick something appropriate.
Why not consider buying some new bedding to go with the nursery. When decorating a new nursery, there is a lot of financial costs involved, especially for the bigger items like the furniture. So take some of the financial strain away by purchasing some of the items like bedding. You could ask the mum to be if there is any particular style she is going for. This will help you pick something they will like.
Many new mothers will love going out shopping for their baby. But if you like the idea of buying an outfit then you could consider buying the next size up. A lot of new mothers get wrapped up in buying the smaller sizes that their baby will need straightaway. So buying the next size up will be a great tip and be greatly appreciated.
Something for mum
Many attendees of the baby shower will be buying gifts to do with the baby. So why not be different and get something for the new mum instead. You could buy some pampering products or offer a voucher for a spa or massage. Or you could be creative and make up a hamper of treats just for Mum. Could include chocolates and face masks, beauty products and treats. You could also include a bottle of bubbly for after the baby has arrived.
A nappy cake
Finally, a new trend is creating something called a nappy cake. This is where you create something that looks like a tiered cake, out of nappies. It’s a great way to gift a real essential. There many tutptirlas online if you would like to find out how to create your own version.
I hope this has inspired you with some great ideas on gifts to buy.
