Baby Shower Gifts That Are Sure To Please
If you will be attending a baby shower soon, you should know that there really are
no hard and fast rules or guidelines concerning what kind of present to bring. You can opt for practical, you can opt for frivolous, or you can find a happy medium: no matter what you choose, it will be appreciated! All you might need from time to time are a few ideas, and that's what this article is all about. Here are a few suggestions for baby shower gifts that are sure to please.
Super-Practical: Disposable Diapers
Diapers? As a shower gift? You bet! Anyone who has had their own babies knows that the cost of keeping them in diapers can really add up fast. Giving disposable diapers as a shower gift is a terrific idea, especially for new mothers who may not have very much money. If you choose to go this route, you don't need to wrap the diapers: just tie a big ribbon around it and include a nice card (perhaps with a gift certificate to a baby store for added fun). As a rule, it's best not to give newborn-size diapers since babies outgrow them so quickly: go with the next size up.
Super-Frivolous: A Silver-Plated Rattle
You've heard about being raised with a silver spoon in your mouth? How about being raised with a silver-plated rattle? Yes, it's a bit frivolous, but such a gift is sure to become a treasured keepsake. Actually, many such rattles only cost about 20 dollars and they are completely safe for baby to play with. They are lightweight, and can even be engraved as a sweet little touch.
Super-Customized: Personalized Baby Gifts
There are high quality online vendors that can personalize just about anything you can think of! You can select from:
--Even Radio Flyer wagons!
If you already know the sex and even the name of the soon-to-be addition, you should go for something ultra personal. This kind of gift is especially appropriate for adopted babies and their mothers!
Super-Thoughtful: Gifts for Baby and Mommy
Although it's fun to give gifts to the baby, a thoughtful touch is to include something special for Mommy as well. Why not give her the gift of a day spa visit, or a gift basket of delectables and self-indulgences selected just for her? The new mom will appreciate that you thought of her too.
