Gift Ideas for Baby Showers

Having a baby shower is a wonderful occasion to celebrate the coming of one of life’s greatest blessings: your bundle of joy.

Whether you’re thinking of throwing a big party or inviting a few friends and relatives over, you will want to give something to your guests as a token of your gratitude for their presence during this very special stage in your life.
Understandably, you would want to give away something nice and herein lies your dilemma: should you go to a supplier to make the favors for you or should make them yourself?

There are upsides and downsides to both these options so you should really consider which one will work best for you before deciding on which way to go.

Baby Shower Favors: DIY or Made-to-Order?

The upside of getting a supplier to make the favors for you is that you don’t have to wrack your brains for creative ways on how to make your own baby shower giveaways.

You also do not have to worry about making time to make the favors especially if you’re busy with the shower preparations.

The downside of getting a supplier to do everything for you is that this may prove to be more expensive than making your own favors.

Now, the upside of homemade baby shower favors is that you may not only be saving on costs but you will also be putting your personal touch into your shower giveaways.

The good news is that there are a number of DIY websites that provide you with plenty of options for homemade shower favors.

On the other hand, if you are known for your baking expertise, you can make one of your popular cookies or baked goodies, put these in colorful boxes or canisters, put a ribbon for accents and you will have in your hands an instant, personalized baby shower favor.

What to Give to Mother and Baby

Now, if you will be going to a baby shower, you may be wondering what gift to get the mom-to-be and the baby. You may consider getting baby clothes for the soon-to-be-out baby.

If you don’t know the gender of the baby, go with neutral colors like yellow or light green. You may also get something generic – meaning, not gender-related like hoodies or booties and bonnets.

Usually, gifts for baby showers are more for the baby than the mother-to-be. However, if you don’t want the mom-to-be to feel left out, you may also get her something.

Books for first-time moms, a gift certificate for a spa massage or a certificate offering your nanny services for a day so the new mom can have a full day to herself are excellent gifts for the soon-to-be new mom.
