Parents are the most precious gift given by God. We should take care of it. - Plato
Baby shower gifts are a wonderful way to show your love, support and excitement with parents-to-be. Parenthood is an incredible journey, and your gifts will help new mothers and fathers welcome their baby into the world. Essential nursery supplies like diapers, bibs and swaddling blankets always make great gifts, but you can also throw in a more unique present to honor your friendship with the expectant parents.
This list contains a list of creative baby shower gifts that are excellent for parents and babies; some can be used right away while others give parents something to look forward to as their little one grows.
If you want to truly make your gift memorable, consider bestowing two presents: one for the parents and one for baby. It's important to support new mothers and fathers on their journey before all of their attention and emotional energy is focused on their child. Baby showers are a great opportunity to express your love and joy for the whole family.
An Ultra Stylish Diaper Bag
One of the challenges many new mothers face is regaining their identity after baby. Tackling the body changes after pregnancy and delivery can also be difficult. Body positivism can start with fashionable, comfortable clothes. These makes parenting easy without compromising a mother's sense of individuality. Therefore, a sleek and stylish diaper bag made from vegan leather or a washable fabric helps mothers feel empowered in their new identities and can help them feel beautiful after baby.
Body Lotion Set
Lotions that help treat stretch marks, moisturize the skin and relax the mother can be a wonderful, pampering baby shower gift. Make sure that you choose lotions that are breast-feeding friendly. Nursing moms have certain restrictions to protect the baby's health.
Ingredients to avoid while breastfeeding include retinoids, parabens, chemical sunscreens and essential oils. Choosing natural, non-chemical lotions will help new moms safely nurture their bodies after birth.
Custom Cross Stitch
A hand-embroidered cross stitch with a heartwarming quote makes a lovely nursery decoration and memento for parents. Potential sayings include:
"Sweet dreams and sunny days."
"You are my sunshine."
"Bloom, little flower."
"You are my favorite."
"And then God gave me you."
You may also consider any personal quotes that you know are meaningful to the parents and decide to include that instead. This keepsake baby shower gift is the kind of present that the baby may even hang in their own child's nursery one day.
Blue Apron Subscription
With a new baby in the house, cooking meals can become a handful. Many moms find themselves barely eating or relying on takeout. They need healthy, nutritious meals to feel good and take the best care of their baby. A subscription to Blue Apron will deliver pre-packaged ingredients and recipes right to their doorstep whenever they want them.
All ingredients are fresh and hand-chosen for quality, and recipes range from Mediterranian meals to quick, one-pan dishes anyone can whip up in a few minutes.
Present the mother with a custom charm or bar bracelet engraved with the baby's birth year. This gift will allow the mother to always keep her child close. It's also a stylish baby shower gift that can be worn regardless of the occasion, and it can add a bit of glam to the new mom's life after labor and delivery.
If the mother is a fan of crystals, you may find jewelry that incorporates stones that represent health, abundance and love such as rose quartz, aventurine and selenite. You can even take this a step further and present the spiritual mother with a healing crystals and stones set.
Baby Milestone Cards
19-piece card set allows parents to creatively capture every important milestone in their baby's life! These artfully designed cards can be used in photo shoots to help new moms and dads preserve their child's most memorable moments. From the first month through their first birthday, each card is a keepsake in and of itself.
Choosing the Perfect Baby Shower Gift
The baby shower is a time to celebrate the impending arrival while appreciating the parents and helping them prepare for the exciting journey ahead. The best gifts come from the heart and mind; they combine the giver's unique personality with the recipient's needs or preferences.
With that in mind, have fun shopping for your loved one's baby shower gift. This is a special time that deserves to be remembered!
