The baby shower is an essential special time for new mums-to-be to get together with family and friends to celebrate the impending arrival. Moreover, this is a rite of passage and important bonding time. Essentially, baby showers are a chance to advise and support the excited mum-to-be, have some fun with baby-themed games, and also to give a special baby shower gift. So, to get you in the right baby shower mood, we’ve put together the ultimate baby shower gift guide. In addition, we’ve included our top tips for your special present and some of our favourite baby shower gift ideas for both babies and their mums.
Top Tips for a Great Baby Shower Gift
- It’s not long before they’re mobile. Consequently, because babies quickly become crawlers and toddlers, it’s best to buy clothes for 6 to 15 months. This way, mum will have plenty of good clothes to change the little one into. Here’s a general guide to baby clothes sizes: 50/56 (0-3-month-olds), 62/68 (3-6-month-olds), 74/80 (6-15-month-olds), 86/92 (15 months to 24 months).
- When buying clothes for when the baby is older, remember to consider the change in season.
- Be kind to the mother and consider practicality too! It’s easy to go for the full-on cute stuff but perhaps those 10 buttons won’t be appreciated in reality.
- Having a new baby is an expensive time, so consider putting your money together with other friends and family in order to afford a much needed bigger item.
