Having a baby can be one of the most fast paced, exciting and emotional periods of life. There can be an endless list of things that parents to need to prepare for, such as setting up the baby’s room, getting ready for the baby’s arrival and just putting together all the things that the baby will need. However, even the parents who are the most meticulous of planners can forget a few things sometimes. After all, no amount of preparation and lists of items to have can adequately prepare us for the moment that our life totally changes with the arrival of a little bundle of joy. To make the arrival of our baby all the more special, a baby shower can be the most perfect occasion. Nothing can be better than friends and family coming together to celebrate the arrival of our baby. However, baby showers can have a downside as well, as they can often turn into gifting showdowns, with everyone trying to deliver the best possible gift. In such situations, some of us can end up giving gifts which seem great to us, but to the parents to be; not so much. So, picking out suitable gifts for a baby shower can actually be a tough process.
While it is true that all gifts have great sentimental value, gifts for baby shower need to do more than just be pretty. The lamps that we think would look great in any home have little use for the baby. After all, there is a time and a place for everything and at a baby shower, we need to tailor our gifts perfectly to the needs of the baby. A little known fact by those of us who aren’t parents is the impact toys have on the baby’s brain development. After all, it does seem hard to believe that a rattle can do much for mental development. However, toys such as rattles, teething toys can aid hand eye coordination and auditory senses. With brain development at its fastest during this period, gifts such as toys to aid development of all five senses can be the perfect baby shower gift. As a bonus, they can be sure to keep the new baby always entertained!
In addition to this, practical gifts to make the lives of the parents to be easier can be cherished forever. Diaper bags, stocked full of baby essentials such as bottles, medicine, environment friendly diapers made of bamboo fiber and underclothes can help mum stay prepared in the case of all emergencies. While clothes in bigger sizes may seem like a strange idea, they can help the parents stay prepped for the coming months, without having to break the bank. They can be a great idea additionally with babies growing so extremely fast. A set of socks and clothing items can be great gifts for a baby shower. Apart from being practical, sets of themed onesies can make the little one look all the more adorable!
