How To Choose The Right Baby Shower Gift
Is It Useful?
As a parent I’ve thought about what products were the most useful gifts that I received when I had my children. It’s easy to opt for something cute but sometimes the most practical gifts can be just as welcomed and from experience you may have a useful gift idea that new parents hadn’t even thought of. Don’t ever underestimate muslins and nappies.
Is It Sentimental?
They say it’s the though that counts, so keepsakes and personalised gifts can be really special for new parents. DIY and homemade gifts will also be unique and something that they can look back on in years to come with their children.
Is It The Right Season?
Clothes are a popular gift choice for babies as there are so many adorable outfits for boys and girls or even unisex ones, but think about size and season when you buy. My friend who recently had a baby girl, said it was wonderful receiving clothing for her baby but friends would buy a size or two up and by the time her little one was able to fit into the outfit it would be the wrong season to wear it.
Where To Buy Online (Best Retailers)
