Tired of buying the same baby shower gifts year after year? It may be time to start thinking outside the box when it comes to selecting your shower presents. Giving a mom-to-be a unique baby shower gift is a sure way to put a smile on her face, and is a welcome change from more typical presents, like clothing and diapers.
One of the easiest ways to give a unique baby gift is to make a common item special by having it engraved or personalized. This is an especially good idea if the parents have already chosen the baby’s name. Blankets, towels, silverware and artwork can easily be personalized with names, dates or special sentiments. If you’re the crafty type, you can even do the work yourself using calligraphy or stenciling. For perfect results that will last a lifetime, there are many companies who do professional, artistic work for a small cost. Personalized gift often become treasured keepsakes.
Baby baskets are another way to make small, practical gifts seem special. Bottles, pacifiers and baby shoes will look gorgeous when they’re arranged artistically in a basket. Selecting the items to follow a theme, like using gifts in the same colors as the baby’s nursery, will make the basket extra thoughtful.
Buying something special for the new mom, instead of the baby, is also a unique gift idea. Often, new or expectant mothers get so caught up in buying things for the baby, they neglect to take care of their own needs. Comfortable pajamas or soothing bath products are items greatly appreciated by tired, stressed new moms.
Gift certificates for professional services like photography also make a special, useful gift. Covering the cost of a photographer will give cashed-strapped new parents one less thing to worry about when baby’s first Christmas rolls around. This is also a great gift for a few friends to split the cost of, as a good photographer’s picture packages can be expensive.
Putting a little extra thought and effort into your shopping can produce a wonderful, creative gift that will be the hit of the baby shower. So, go the extra mile and make a mom-to-be’s day extra special!
