Baby Shower Gifts

What do expecting moms really want when it comes to baby shower gifts?There are so many things to consider when shopping for a newborn baby or mother-to-be.. Every gift that is given is put to use at some point. Here are some questions to ask yourself when buying a baby shower gift.

Am I shopping for a boy or a girl? This question comes to mind when you are wanting to buy the baby a clothing item or something for the nursery. You may want to buy a gender neutral present if the parents are choosing not to find out until birth. Sometimes boys look like girls and girls look like boys. Maybe you would want to get a baby girl headband or a blue baby bottle.

Will this fit the baby? You usually ask this question when you are buying clothes or shoes or even diapers. Eventually the answer will be yes because they can always grow into it. I always enjoyed getting diapers that were too big. Parents can never get enough diapers and wipes as a baby shower gift.

Is the mother registered somewhere? Registries are a wonderful way for expectant parents to communicate their preferences to their guests. It ensures that the family receives the items that they truly want and need, and avoids duplication of popular gifts.

Should I buy a gift for the mom? Mothers always appreciate a gift for her whether she can use it on herself or the baby. When the baby arrives most of the time all the attention is shifted towards the baby. The best baby shower present I got was a gift coupon for a complete relaxing massage and a pedicure. Moms need to be pampered and cared for too.

How many babies am I buying for? Typically the case is just one. If you are buying for twins or triplets then think about what the parents are going to need most of. A double stroller will come in handy as well.

Do I buy the baby shower gift or do I make it? If you are creative and artistic there are some really cute ideas on how to make a diaper cake or a quilt. You can also have a fantastic keepsake made. You can give your baby shower gift a personal touch. When you buy a baby shower gift you can always get a gift receipt for the return or exchange of another.

Any baby shower gift item could be of sentimental value or practical life saver.Baby showers are meant to be helpful & fun for the new mommy and baby to be! Every baby is different and unique and every baby should be celebrated.
