Gift Vouchers

Giving mom-to-be gift vouchers from supermarkets or renowned baby shops is a good idea. Gift vouchers are some of the most practical gifts that you can give.

A Professional House Clean

Mom-to-be will truly appreciate this practical gift since most mom-to-be clean their house before the baby arrives – this could be the shower gift they will receive. It is also best for moms that already have children. Even the first time mom will appreciate the added help around the house particularly during the later stages of their anticipation. Actually, during the end stages of pregnancy, pregnant women find it hard to even bend while cleaning the house, so additional help is greatly appreciated.

Clothing and Diapers.
.
The best baby shower gift items that you give are clothing and diapers. Some may consider giving shampoo, books, blankets and albums. But diapers are one of the most practical items you can purchase for a few reasons. Babies normally use ten diapers or even more a day so you know they will use it without a doubt. Giving diapers will also help them lower their expenses. You can choose organic diapers since these are much safer for the baby’s delicate skin. Diapers might not be the most exciting gift that you can give, but it definitely does work! Instead of giving it in a boring box, purchase some ribbons and bands and try making a diaper cake! Now, you have a best looking gift surely to impress everyone!

The materials used are very important and you need to make sure that it is very soft and safe for the baby’s skin. Since babies have sensitive skin and clothing made of rough materials could produce rashes as well as other as skin problems. Choose clothes made of natural materials.

Tips on Buying Baby Clothes as Baby Shower Gifts:
.
Buying clothes for babies in size 0-6 months could be a bit big at first, but the baby will definitely use it longer. Babies grow fast, they have normally outgrown their coming home outfit within a week or two so I would avoid purchasing something that is newborn size.

Plan even further ahead and buy some baby wear in 6-9 month sizes. Take into account what season it will be in 6-9 months time. This will provide mommy and the baby some new baby wear to look forward to.

Gift Baskets

A gift basket is another gift item that you can consider. These baskets usually come with different items such as pacifiers, shampoos, rattles and others. If you are really don’t have any idea what to give as baby shower gifts, then the gift basket idea is an excellent choice. 

It does not matter what you end up buying, just make sure that the item comes from a trusted company.  There are some baby product companies that are better than others and you do not want to spend a lot on something that is not worth it. It is best if you read some reviews about what past buyers are saying. This is the best way to make sure you are getting a perfect baby shower gift.

  • Laundry baskets – you can use the laundry basket to hold other gift items that you want to give.
