September is known as the busiest month for births in the UK and we all know what that means –awash with Baby Showers!
So here at Colief HQ we understand that the pressure to get the right baby shower gift has probably started to hit you, but don’t worry, we have put together our Top 5 Baby Shower Gifts to get you through.
Baby monitor: Every mother knows that a Baby Monitor is a household staple when you have a little one crawling around; especially when you already have a busy family life!
Gifting future parents to be with this item could give them some peace of mind for the night’s ahead – always a great gift in conjunction with other things, or even simply on its own.
Nappy Cakes: For all you crafty types out there, we have just the gift to show off for your skills -Nappy Cakes. Not only are these a super useful gift (because you can never have too many nappies!) but they are also really fun to create and a great way to turn an everyday essential into a work of art.
You’re bound to steal the show if you show up with this masterpiece.
A few tips to consider, are using various nappy sizes, so there’ll be plenty of nappies on hand as the baby grows out of the new-born sizes. Also it’s advised not to hold back when making up a Nappy Cake, because the possibilities are truly endless! Some people even add in cute socks, vests and scratch mittens.
Restaurant Gift Card + Babysitting service: Often an overlooked option, but simply offering up a couple of hours in the first few months after the birth of a new child can help the new parents enjoy some precious alone time – priceless. The gift of a night off from baby duty or extra hands around the house will certainly be appreciated, as is takes the pressure off the new parents for a moment and enables them to relax and enjoy a celebration just the two of them. You can offer to provide the service yourself or use those of a trusted agency in your area, any time.
Mum-to-be Spa Day: Aches and pains during pregnancy coupled with sleep deprivation can be a real strain on the bodies of newly pregnant mummies, making a mum-to-be spa day a thoughtful gift that will help mum to be to unwind and enjoy some down time before baby’s arrival.
The best thing about this gift idea, is that it is ready to use when the parents choose and although they can be on the more expensive side, there are also some reasonable options. This is a great way to remind the new parents that it is important that they take some time out for themselves.
Why not try a DIY approach; buying all the beauty products and Colief Mum To Be Moisturising Cream to make a Spa Day at home for you and your pregnant friend? Mum To Be Moisturising Cream is described as a “secret skincare weapon”. It is expertly formulated to help prevent the appearance of stretch marks and this skin saviour also protects against uncomfortably itchy and dry skin, frequently experienced by pregnant women. A bump massage and foot rub would go down a treat! You can even use the product after birth to help boost the skin’s natural healing process – this gift is a real all-rounder.
That wraps up our Top Baby Shower Gifts. Happy shopping!
