Here are 5 gifts that any mother will most certainly be appreciative of. The baby shower gift ideas are great for those who are shopping or for mom’s to put on their gift registry.
1. Diapers, diapers and more diapers.
That is quite a bland gift but a very much needed gift. I don’t know of any mom who will complain about having too many diapers with a newborn at home; they will definitely need it when they decides to enroll their baby in a day care center in the future.
To make the diapers snazzy, you have to dress it up a bit. You can find diaper cakes in lots of baby decorative gift shops. Some come with as many as 150 diapers, plus booties, bibs and tons of other essentials for baby, but all in the shape of a beautiful cake.
2. Layettes, blankets, socks and burp cloths.
Chances are they are going to get tons of these. However, these gifts tend to come in newborn or 3 months sizes in which after a few weeks, probably won’t serve its purpose anymore. You can make this a great gift by buying them in larger sizes so that after a few months, mom still has brand new gifts for baby to enjoy. These gifts would also become handy for mom later, if she puts her baby in a child care center.
3. Pamper products for Mom.
The last few weeks of pregnancy are very uncomfortable and can be hard on Mom. Let mom have the star treatment as well. "Hey Hey we know" that once the baby is born, mom’s 15 minutes of fame are over.
4. Savings Bonds.
A savings bond is a great way to help invest in the child’s future. While everyone is thinking of now, you are thinking ahead. It may also help parents to jump-start on baby’s future if they haven’t already.
5. Gift Certificates.
You can never go wrong with a gift certificate. Mom and Dad get to choose what they want and you gave them that satisfaction. The obvious choice for a gift certificate would be where they have a registry set up. If they do not have a registry set up, good choices could include their favorite supermarkets (formula, diapers) or baby store. Another gift certificate idea could be a check card gift certificate. It works like a credit card and can be used anywhere.
Tip: I don’t usually suggest buying clothing unless the parents-to-be suggested so. Chances are they have already gone shopping and couldn’t resist those tiny adorable outfits. However, if you want to buy baby clothing, it would be great to get them in bigger sizes.
