Baby showers are always wonderful occasions, filled with fun and games, and lots of laughter - and lots of baby gifts too, of course. Shopping for newborn babies and new mums and dads is a lot of fun as there are so many cute little things to be found… it can often be quite difficult to make a decision and you may find yourself buying it all!
You might find the choice a little overwhelming, however, so thinking about the new parents and what they might find most useful is always a great place to start. You can get some of the cute little things, as well, but practical presents will always be appreciated, especially when they first bring their new arrival home.
One of the most popular presents is, of course, clothing but if you decide to go down this route, consider buying baby clothes at least one size up, as they can always grow into something but if it’s too small then your present will be wasted.
Something else to think about is the time of year that the baby is due in, as this will help you decide what to buy, whether it’s something snuggly or a sunhat. Other practical ideas that will always be appreciated by new parents are the likes of nappies, pacifiers and baby bottles.
A personal touch will always bring a smile to new parents’ faces, so you could also consider having a few gifts personalised with the baby’s initials, or even make them something yourself - the perfect way to celebrate a new life.
