Getting the perfect baby shower gift can be a daunting task. We’d like to help you easily analyze what type of gift would suite your dear friend or family member that is expecting.
Firstly, you would need to identify what type of person the mom-to-be is.
Is she orgainsed, practical, precious or arty?
These moms appreciate baby shower gifts that can be used day in and day out; things like nappy’s, wipes, bum cream definitely fall into this list. There are also some other items that moms cannot live without such as blankets, swaddles, towels, bibs, teethers and toys.
Help and support your mom to be by enabling her to easily make marvelous memories with her brand new bundle of joy. Milestone blanket can capture days, weeks, months and years with a little one, by simply placing them on a blanket to pose for a picture. There are also cute cards or signs that can be used for creating beautiful photographs of baby’s first year.
Throw in a cute toy or two that can keep baby entertained while all the memories are being photographed. Photo frames and baby books are also a fantastic gift idea for a precious mom, giving them a place to store their creations.
Organised moms appreciate gifts that help them stay organised. Baby’s need a lot of stuff and all the stuff needs a place to live. Partitioned carry bags, changing table shelving, and organisers are among some great gift ideas.
The iKids baby formula dispensers, are easy to carry and to find in a hurry, and they can double up as snack carries when baby grows up a little. Compact baby nail kits are great for a quick nail trim, because for some reason baby nails grow so fast and can very quickly become long and scratchy.
Nursery décor and cot and bed canopies are some great gift ideas for arty moms. Hanging Mobiles are perfect to distract babies while they are on the changing mat, allowing mom to focus on changing the nappy instead multitasking additional entertainment.
Other influencing thoughts to keep in mind will be:
- Is the baby a boy or a girl?
- Does the mom prefer wooden toys?
- What is the baby room theme?
