Baby Showers - The Best Way to Shower A Mom to Be With Unique Baby Gifts

Baby Showers: The Best Way to Shower a Mom-to-Be With Unique Baby GiftsBy: Sherry Frewerd
Finding out your pregnant is wonderful and exciting news. For the new mother-to-be, however, knowing what items she must have for her new baby and then where to find them can be a huge and daunting task.The first thing a new Mom-to-be needs to do is to make a list of all the things the baby will need as soon as possible so that each item can be purchased a few at a time and readied for the baby's arrival. How can family and friends help the new mommy get everything her newborn will need in advance of the big date? The age-old practice of throwing a baby shower of course! The mom can sit back and enjoy the day while her friends and family shower her with gifts and goodies for herself and the newborn.With a baby shower, the burden of searching and looking for baby stuff is passed on to the guests. But for the folks hosting the baby shower some questions must be answered before the day of the party. First you must plan the baby shower. The best idea is to have a theme that would guide the flow of the baby shower. There are several ways of choosing and deciding on a theme. In case you already know the gender of the baby, pink or blue is used to universally represent a baby girl or a baby boy. How about a character-themed baby shower such as Rubber Duckies, Winnie the Pooh, or a Nursery Rhyme theme? It could also be a time-of-the-day baby shower where each guest will bring something the baby would need during a specific time of the day. From Unique-Gifts-for Baby, some suggestions for wonderful baby shower gift ideas are a baby gift basket, a layette gift set, beautiful baby bedding, a baby shower diaper cake, or a baby gift certificate. Each gift idea is unique. For the baby gift basket, some ideas are to create your own baby gift basket or go for the classical clothing baby gift basket. You can also find personalized baby gift baskets, fun baby baskets, mother and baby baskets, gift baskets for twins, or a pampering baby gift basket. They also have different suggestions for baby girls and baby boys. After the baby shower, moms need to take an inventory of what was received and what is still needed for the new baby. Make sure to purchase these items well in advance of the baby's arrival date.Some final tips for a successful baby shower: plan the event four to six weeks before the due date, decide on a theme, compose the guest list, plan party games and the menu, create baby shower party favors, and last but not the least, set the time and location. Remember, to have fun, but keep the baby shower simple and sweet and take lots of pictures or video to create memories to last forever.

Practical Gift Ideas For New Moms

We’ve all been to baby showers where everyone ooh’s and aah’s over the adorable gifts the Mom to be receives and she deserves them! But there are practical gifts that the new Mom will need and appreciate down the road when her baby has arrived. These gifts may not get the "Oh how cute" reactions but they are desperately needed!
1- Diapers - any Mom knows you can never have enough diapers and they can get expensive! If you’d like to give this practical gift but with a twist, a decorated diaper cake makes a beautiful presentation of a much needed gift!
2- Humidifiers - Babies always seem to get sick in the middle of the nigh and not during the pediatricians office hours. A humidifier is a much needed staple for any baby’s room! At 3:00 in the morning when baby is coughing a humifidier will save the day!
3- Gift certificate for photo sessions - All new parents take hundreds of pictures of their babies. Give a photo studio gift certificate for those first holiday or first birthday pictures. This is a gift you know will be used and appreciated and save the new parents some money!
4- Picture Frames - for all those photos new parents take of their precious baby - they will need frames to put them in. For an added touch, have them personalized or custom made to match babies room.
5- Photo brag books - all those new photos need to be displayed outside the home as well. Brag books are now available in beautiful silk fabrics with personalization
6- Crib Sheets, Burp Cloths and Bibs - there isn’t a new Mom that can ever have enough of these staples! Newborns constantly spit up, wet thru their clothing and need to be burped. The larger supply a Mom has will come in handy when the laundry is just so backed up. Bibs with velcro are the easiest to use!
7- Socks - Little one’s grow out of their socks and booties so fast! Socks in larger sizes will be most helpful to a new Mom. Make sure the elastic is not too tight for babies legs.
8- Clothes in larger sizes - let’s face it - newborn clothing is adorable but how many times is a newborn going to wear a fancy dress or outfit? Buy those types of gifts in larger sizes.
9- Convertible Crib Bedding - there are many designers that now offer bedding that converts from the crib to a toddler bed. Saving parents the expense of new bedding is a gift that will definitely be appreciated.
10- Baby Bath & Body Gift Sets - including shampoos, baby bath soap and lotions. These are essentials that you know will be used and a new Mom never wants to run out of.
