Babies, babies, babies I love babies!! With babies comes baby showers. I have 6 tips for choosing a great baby shower gift I’ll go into in just a bit. Those of you that have been following my reviews know I have a new grand baby on the way and we want nothing but the best for her!! We could go crazy buying all kinds of cute baby gear but know to stick to the basics and not to go overboard! My daughter in law’s baby shower is coming up, I have been looking for the perfect baby shower gift for her & baby. I could have just run out and bought the first cutest thing I saw, but I know better than that! There are so many things to consider when buying baby gear. Making a decision on what to get them was becoming overwhelming to say the least. I knew I would be safe by narrowing my selection down to a specific baby item. The choice was obvious, a baby blanket would make the perfect baby shower gift!! Of course I wanted to be sure the blanket was safe, not too big, have too much lace or frilly stuff and would be easy to pack in a diaper bag. I honestly thought this would be a simple task, boy was I wrong! Because there is so much baby stuff out on the market today, especially baby blankets, making a simple decision on the right baby blanket was hard to do. Boy you can only imagine how happy I was when Stokke sent me their beautiful Jersey Blanket Set to review!!
5 Tips for Choosing A Great Baby Shower Gift!
- Keep it simple use a baby registry A baby shower registry is your best option for the perfect gift. The registry will have listed exactly what the expecting parent needs and wants are. What I love about a baby registry is you can purchase the baby gear directly from it!
- Ask the parent to be what they may need Chances are the parent to be may have already been out baby shopping. By asking gives you inside knowledge as to what they may actually want or need.
- Girl or Boy If the parents don’t know the gender of the baby, look for baby clothes, toys and other products in gender-neutral colors and patterns. You don’t want to give a fire truck to a baby girl or a baby doll to a little boy.
- Stay within your budget By All means! You don’t want to “break the bank” or go into debt by purchasing a baby item you honestly cannot afford!! I have a couple of friends that are always in competition with one another on who will bring the best gift. They’re always trying to outdo one another and it drives the rest of us nutty!! Remember this is the expecting parents special day of celebrating the arrival of their new bundle of joy. The focus should be on them!! We would all love to give a large gift, like a stroller or car seat, if you can afford it go for it!! If not ask some of the other baby shower quests if they would like to pitch in on purchasing one of the larger items as a way to keep costs down.
- Look for a gift that will last a lifetime Baby DVDs and baby books that are entertaining and best of all educational are the best. Also, baby picture frames and keepsake books help the parents remember their baby through every stage of the his or her lives, and will be cherished for ever!!
