How to choose the perfect baby shower gifts
Though we think of it as being a purely American tradition, in actual fact, baby showers have been an important part of a number of traditional cultures for generations. From Bangladesh to South Africa and Guatemala to Mongolia, women have always got together to celebrate the imminent arrival, or recent birth, of a new member of the community.
With celebrities like Kim Kardashian hosting glamorous, high profile baby showers, recent years have seen a big increase in the number of British women indulging in the tradition themselves. If you’ve been invited to a baby shower or are holding one yourself, here’s a quick guide to choosing the perfect baby shower gifts.
Choose something personal
A baby shower is a distinctly personal event so any baby shower gifts that you give should reflect the intimate nature of the get together.
If you want to make your baby shower gifts truly special, why not create personalised phone cases for the mum to be, complete with a few of their favourite photos?
Opt for a practical present
When you have small children around, it’s all too easy for things to get broken, smashed and knocked over. Baby shower gifts that will help your friends to cope with life with a baby in tow will be a welcome addition to their parenting arsenal.
Don’t make baby shower gifts too flashy
As most mothers to be open their baby shower gifts in front of their guests, choosing a present that’s very expensive or a bit flashy can make you look like you’re trying too hard.
Instead, opt for a gift with a lot of sentimental value and show your friend, and the other guests, that you really care.
Focus on mum
The majority of the guests will give baby shower gifts that revolve around the baby. Though the mum to be will appreciate baby clothes and accessories, they can sometimes feel a little bit left out of the gift giving.
By choosing a present that’s for mum instead of baby, you can make your gift stand out from the crowd and make sure you provide something that’s truly practical.
