So, you've been invited to a baby shower. How lovely!
Baby Shower celebrations as they are today were quite a new concept for me. I was pretty clueless when I attended my first one. With questions like what to do, what to take, how much to spend, and not knowing at the time if it was a boy or a girl came with it’s own dilemmas!
Lately, it seems like every week someone walks into the shop searching for a baby shower gift. Just like me back then, they're seeking that perfect gift but don’t know where to start, what to do or what to spend. So, I’ve put together a simple guide that whispers the secrets of choosing the perfect baby shower gift. Here goes:
Let’s just make this clear! Don’t stress about it!
Straight away it’s important to note that there's no "right" or "wrong" number when it comes to spending. There’s no need to stress about it, don’t feel pressured to hit a specific number it's all about your bond with the mum-to-be. Are you family? A close friend? Maybe a work colleague? Whatever the connection, trust your gut feeling. Remember, the magic of giving isn't about how much you spend. It's the thought behind the gift that truly matters. Pick what feels right, we have a beautiful selection of gifts of all price ranges so lets get to it! Here are just some of my favourites:
A treat for the Mum-to-be:
By this time in her pregnancy the mum-to-be will be navigating all kinds of emotions – excitement, fatigue, and a touch of uncertainty. So how about a little something to sooth those worries, relax that aching back, soften that bump and ease those tense muscles.
Let me introduce our ‘Mummy & Me’ organic body oil, body butter, bath soak, and bath salts. Crafted amidst the beautiful Welsh hills by Earth to Earth Organics, these beautiful products hold within them antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. With the gentle addition of essential oils these organic creams and oils are a real treat! The perfect gift for any mum-to-be who needs a little spoiling before the big day.
The body butter is safe to use on baby too, just right to pop in their hospital bag, ready for the new arrival. You can read all about them by clicking on the image below.
