When it comes to buying baby shower gifts it can be difficult to know what to get for the expecting Mum. Whether you’re worried about buying them something they already have or you don’t want to turn up with the same gift as someone else, you need to be sure you’re putting a lot of thought into the gift you’re buying.
While it may seem a little overwhelming at first, we’ve put together a list of the gifts new Mum’s actually want right here. From gifts they’ll use everything day to keepsakes they’ll treasure forever, you’ll certainly be the best gift-giver of the shower if you buy from this list:
A Hamper Filled With Goodies
One of the best gifts you can buy for a Mum-to-be is a baby hamper filled with various bits and pieces. Whether you’re buying a hamper filled with cute clothes or a hamper that has everything you need during the first few weeks of parenthood, it’s a great way to ensure you’re buying something they’re actually going to use. With beautiful packaging and a range of different sizes available, there is literally a hamper for absolutely everyone.
Baby Clothes In A Range Of Different Sizes
Baby clothes are an absolute must and so buying a bundle of clothes for the new arrival is definitely going to be a gift that Mum-to-be will be grateful to unwrap. Make sure you’re buying various different sizes, however. Everyone tends to buy newborn clothes forgetting that within a couple of weeks, they’re already big enough for the next size up!
Something For Mum & Dad To Enjoy In The Future
If you want to do something special but you don’t necessarily want to buy something for the baby, why not treat Mum and Dad to a gift they could enjoy in the future? Whether it’s a gifted experience or a meal out, you may also want to consider offering your babysitting services as a caveat too.
A Special Keepsake
Keepsakes are a wonderful gift to give if you want to buy something that will be treasured forever. Although you may feel like buying something practical is better, keepsakes are something that every single Mum-to-be will keep for the rest of their lives. Whether it’s a journal to track the first year of their little one’s life or a blanket for them to use as they grow up, you’re sure to put a smile on Mum’s face with a gift like this.
Offer Your Services
This may sound like an odd gift to give but if you have a skill in a particular area, why not offer your services? From helping decorate the nursery to preparing frozen meals for them to stock in their freezer, you may be surprised at how much help a Mum-to-be needs in the run-up to their little one’s arrival.
With lots of incredible gifts to choose from, you can be sure you’re buying something Mum actually wants without all of the inevitable guesswork that comes with gift-giving.
