My friends all know me as The Gift Lady. I absolutely love to shop for every celebration. (Just ask my husband. And my wallet!)
Why not? A wedding, a retirement, a new baby…these are one-of-a-kind special occasions. There’s nothing I like better than finding that perfect special something for someone I love. What I’ve found is that grown-ups love gifts every bit as much as youngsters do, so here are a few of my faves for the big people celebrating a new baby.
Still one of my all-time favorite baby shower gifts. It’s practical and it’s adorable. If you use newborn size diapers, you can get tons of them in, but I find Size Ones are perfect, since that’s just about the time new parents are running out of the gifts they received at their shower.
I love this one:
The diapers fit an 8-14 lb. baby. The “cake” comes in three sizes: 2-tier, classic and mini. Personalization is free. Don’t you just love Winnie the Pooh? I love this one too:
Training Treats for New Dads
Check this out:
Can you say “full of LOLz”? It’s rare that a dad-to-be loves the typical “daddy” gift, but he’ll eat these right up. Three yummy treats come in each package. Use sparingly — make him work for it, Mom!
New Daddy Tool Belt
Here’s another awesome gift for the new Daddy:
What makes us laugh most are the goggles (perfect for those changings…particularly if a little boy is on the way), but every piece of this gift is special. The button makes the perfect memento for Dad. It also comes with more practical additions, such as the diaper and a mini container of baby powder.
This little flower will bloom forever. I love keepsakes, and this will fit into a scrapbook.
This corsage includes a sweet poem. Mom-to-be can wear it during the shower, then keep it forever. My favorite type of flower! You can find more corsage choices here.
Choose your baby shower gifts with the parents’ personalities in mind. Are Mom and Dad funny? Traditional? Do they have a favorite color? Do they have a color or pattern theme picked out for the nursery? Ask around and find these details out before picking out gifts for the parents-to-be. We promise they’re going to love you for it.
