Ideas for Baby Gifts and Baby Showers

. 11/20/08

Scouting around for baby shower gifts will get the best of your discerning sixth shopping sense! Thinking of that cute kid, and of those cute gifts makes you just want to snap up all the goodies in sight. But before you wrack up those bills, check first what the expectant mother thinks is good for her kid. Or try asking the opinion of the person in charge of the baby shower so you can have a wonderful surprise for the mother-to-be and the baby when the gifts are opened. But if you are on the look out how to make things even simpler but more fun, then read on!

What most expectant mothers currently do is to sign up their baby gifts options at a store which makes available services on a baby shower registry. What specifically happens is that a guest can drop by the store and talk to the store's gift consultant to choose the items that she or an expectant friend would like to have for her baby. Then the store saves the list of recommendations to the store's baby gifts registry computer so that registered users can simply surf the store's website, look up the mother's name, and perhaps the date of the baby shower, and then save a copy of the gift list.

With shopping nowadays sometimes happening right on your cellphone, the price for each baby gifts may automatically be part of your shopping list. Voila, no more worries if the guest simply wants to spend on gifts according to a specific amount. Another perk to resorting to a gift registry is that giving the same gift twice is not a possibility since items are removed from the registered list whenever they are purchased from that store.

Many stores may also add the extra service of personalized engraving for the intimate touch. This is especially popular when the baby shower is being held after the birth of the baby because guests will have the baby's details including the baby's full name, birth date, weight and height.

Or, why not put a twist on things? Why not give your baby gifts right after the pregnancy? And why gifts for the baby alone, when you can give to both mother and child? Around the time of the pregnancy the woman of the hour will be absent minded when it comes to taking care of her own self. So a gift basket filled with little treats for the pair will send the new mom a signal that you are concerned about her too. Only a few ideas you could give her are a gift certificate to a spa, some exclusive chocolate brand or a good romance novel.

And a final word on the etiquette of baby showers. If you are the person who is going to emcee the baby shower, there is no need to give a precious something to the mother-to-be since the keeping on top of the bridal shower itself is a good gift all by itself. And as anybody who has faced head-on the ins and outs of a baby shower, you get to offer a very elaborate and expensive gift.
