A baby shower is a great way of gathering your close friends and family, all of the people who love and support you, and celebrate the arrival of your child. They are there to help you and give honest advice, as well as to share some funny anecdotes about their experiences as new mothers.
I remember my first baby shower like it was yesterday. It was a beautifully emotional day, one of the happiest of my life. But the most heartfelt moment for me was when the time came to open presents and my best friend handed me a small, neatly wrapper box. It was my first pair of baby shoes, so tiny they could easily fit into the palm of my hand, and the cutest present I received that day.
I am a person who loves creative gifts and I always try to be fresh and original. But at the same time, I like when gifts are practical and useful, especially when it comes to presents for expecting mothers. Of course, if it’s your best friend who is expecting, you could always go the extra mile and give her an interesting personalized gift that is perfect for her.
Here are some ideas for creative baby shower presents:
I may be a bit biased, but I honestly believe you can’t go wrong with an adorable pair of baby shoes. Not only are they a handy gift, but they can also be used when the baby outgrows them. If you choose the right pair, they can easily be displayed and cherished forever.
Bodysuits and onesies may sound like the obvious choice, but you could really express your creativity with a gift like this. Roll them up and arrange them in a beautiful flower bouquet or put them in a clear box and make cute onesie cupcakes, the choice is yours.
Hooded towels and bath wraps are one of the best presents I can think of. Not only do they come in a variety of adorable animal-like designs, but they also keep the baby warm and dry.
Yes, that’s right. A pacifier and stuffed animal all in one. The baby is sure to be calm and happy snuggled up with this amazing gift.
Matching mommy and baby outfits are an adorable gift. You could choose an interesting print or a quirky slogan that you know your friend will love, or even make a unique one yourself to ensure the present is even more personal.
Is there anything better then a diaper bag on the inside that looks as good as a designer bag on the outside? It’s as practical as it is fashionable. A present like this is guaranteed to make mom happy.
Is there anything more special than a gift from the heart? If you are a crafty person, I suggest knitting a blanket or crocheting a hat, sweater or booties. The love and effort that go into these kinds of presents make them something truly precious.
Don’t just go and buy a pre-made one, make a personalized gift basket yourself. It is more special and thoughtful and your friend will definitely love it. You could fill it up with all the necessities a baby could ever need and arrange them in an interesting way, or even make a care package for mom to make her pregnancy a bit easier.
Memory books are a perfect keepsake to save every moment of a baby’s life and ensure you never forget them. Not only will the family be able to look back on those significant moments, but they will always think of you when they do. It is a thoughtful gift you definitely can’t go wrong with.
In my opinion, booking a session with a professional photographer is one of the most beautiful gifts you could give to your best friend. Being able to preserve and treasure those special moments is truly a priceless thing. There’s no denying she will adore this wonderful present.
