A baby shower is one of the most traditional ways to welcome the newest member of the family and is a good excuse to shower the expectant parents with gifts! It’s also a good way for friends and family to get together, but what will you buy for Mum and baby?
If you are looking for useful baby shower gift ideas, we’ll offer top picks below, from the best cloth baby wipes and nappies to pods, wet bags, and bibs. Read on to discover baby shower planning ideas and gifts!
Useful Gifts Are the Best
Most of us are children at heart and are perfectly capable of getting very excited over baby toys, which can be so cute you just have to have them. However, the reality is that expectant parents already have so much on their plate that you probably need to give them a gift that will be more practical.
The good news is you don’t have to be an expert to pick out a great present, as we have done all the work for you! Traditionally, planning a baby shower isn’t done by the expectant mother, but she may have a gift registry that will help you with your choice. Some practical gifts can include:
Swim Nappies for Their First Summer
Most babies love being in the water, and it is safe to take them swimming from two months onwards, so a summer baby will need some swim nappies, to make it easier for mum. Our swim nappies are just like our regular nappies but without the inserts. They are so versatile, you can use them as regular nappies on the way to the pool, and just take out the insert once you get there for a swim nappy!
Our swim nappies are lined with athletic wicking jersey, making them perfect for the water, and come with adjustable sizing, lightweight and breathable. You can choose from a range of sizes, and they come in lots of fabulous colours and designs.
Swim nappies don’t absorb water and prevent adding extra weight while your child is swimming around. This can also reduce the risk of drowning. You could also add a change mat to your gift.
How About Something for Mama?
Mum will have been so busy looking forward to having everything perfect for her baby, that she has very likely forgotten to look after herself! This is where a baby shower is such a cool idea, as her friends and family can go all out to make her life easier for when the baby arrives. So, how about some Women’s PJ Pants?
There will be many times when mama is going to be getting up in the middle of the night to feed her baby, so she needs something comfortable that she can wear both in bed, and around the house, and our PJ pants are the perfect answer.
Woolbabe developed and uses innovative fabric as a real point of difference from all other PJs which are now on the market. Two natural fibres, merino wool and organic cotton, were combined to make one luxurious fabric. The strength and durability of cotton, with the amazing temperature regulation and moisture absorption of merino, makes for a fabulous combination!
