Personalized And Unique Gifts For A Baby Shower

Oct 9, 2007
The baby shower originated and derived its name from the thoughtful gesture of showering gifts and love to the expecting mother to be before the baby is born. Currently, the practice of holding baby shower parties has changed and traditional baby shower presents have been replaced with personalized and unique baby gifts. Such unique presents include engraved rattles, growth charts, spoons, birth stone bracelets, gift certificates for baby photo or for baby stuffs, drinking cups, stuff toys, musical pillows and diaper cakes. Other unique gifts include nursery baskets, toy baskets and diaper baskets.

When choosing personalized and unique baby shower gifts keep in mind that if the expecting mother has registered with a particular baby store the items that she needs, it will be less confusing for you in deciding what to give if you purchase the gift based on her needs. Plus, you are sure that the mother to be will definitely appreciate the gift. If you have plans of giving baby clothes and you are not aware of what the gender of the baby is, choose gender neutral shades like green, yellow and white. If you are not yet a parent, you can talk with other parents to ask for gift ideas. If you are a parent yourself, you can always draw inspiration from your own personal experience.

If toys are on your mind, there are helpful tips to bear in mind in order that the right toy will be given. In buying baby toys always consider its durability and safety. This should be useful as well. Check on the toy's age specification and if it is appropriate for the baby's age. Take a look at past experiences with your baby if you happen to be a parent. Think about how other babies have reacted to certain types of toys. Most importantly, ensure that the toy you will be selecting is non-toxic, does not have any sharp edges and there are no small parts that could possibly be swallowed. As much as possible, the toy should be colored bright and should be easy to hold and grasp.

Other creative baby gifts for showers include personalized gift baskets that are very practical and useful. If you desire for your shower gift to be essential you can opt for hand-knit sweaters, diapers, baby blanket, clothing, feeding bottles, baby shoes, bath products and CDs of baby lullabies. Expensive baby shower gifts can include stroller, crib, car seat, high chair and even baby monitor.

The market is filled with many gift ideas for a baby shower. With a touch of your own creativity, you can make the present more personalized.
