There are a thousand things that one could see when they visit a baby shop when looking for baby shower gift ideas. Some are basic necessities while other are considered baby luxuries. According to mothers, the most treasured baby shower gifts are those that are practical to be used daily and those that have sentimental values.
- First on the list are things that are made from the heart such as handmade blankets for the baby, handmade hats and other clothes especially done for the baby. Another example is mementos from the parents’ childhood. It would be nice to receive things and toys that the parents used to wear and play with as a child and now they can pass them on to their own children. Let us not forget our patient Nanas who are fond of crocheting everything for the baby from the hat, to the booties and other clothing items.
- If there is one thing that parents will appreciate, it’s getting gift certificates. The parents will be able to buy essentials that they don’t have instead of receiving the same things from different individuals. A gift certificate that can be used in a local photo studio is a great idea in order to make sure the baby gets professional photos during his or her first month.
- Though the baby is the main priority, let us not forget the mother who is carrying the baby for nine months. One can only imagine what she is going through so a treat for the mom would be a great baby shower gift. A gift coupon for the mom to have prenatal massage as well as a manicure and pedicure would be ideal. A restaurant reservation for the couple would also be lovely so they can have a date night together.
- One of the most important baby essentials is diapers. A stock of diaper for the baby’s first few months would be heaven sent for the parents.
Aside from these ideas, you can also opt for personalized baby shower gifts such as baby blankets with the baby’s initials.
