It can be difficult to choose a gift for a friend’s or family member’s baby shower. The number of baby items that are in the market is overwhelming. And if you’re not a parent yourself, you will find yourself becoming lost in the middle of the vast array of baby shower items that are available. You always want to find the perfect gift that will be unique and memorable. After all, a new baby is a momentous occasion or the family. In this article, we will be giving you a few ideas that will help you find the perfect gift.
New parents love to receive gifts that are genuine and from the heart. So if you have some time, consider gifts for baby shower that are made by yourself. Some examples are handmade hats, blankets, booties and cardigans. This can be a perfect for someone who loves to knit or sew. You can leave your own personal touch on these gifts and the gesture will be much appreciated by the new parents. There are also gifts that hold a certain sentimental value such as clothes or blankets one of the parents themselves wore or a toy that they adored when they were children. It can make for a wonderful surprise and a touching gift. The gift will have a history attached to it which will make it special. However, if you can’t find the exact item of clothing or toy, you can always re-create it.
Another idea for baby shower gifts is gift vouchers of certificates. You can get those from a popular baby shop online in Singapore or supermarket. While you may not think it’s very unique, it can be one of the most helpful gifts a new parent can receive. They can simply get anything that they are lacking from the shop. They will have to spend a lot of money on essential items like diapers, baby wipes etc. You can also get a gift voucher they can redeem at a photographer’s studio. This will be an ideal way for the new parents to cherish memories of the early months.
You don’t always have to buy a gift that is baby themed. You can find a thoughtful gift that the parents themselves will enjoy instead. Some examples are a paid weekend getaway for the couple, a gift certificate that they can spend on a night out together, a meal at a nice restaurant complete with a paid-for childcare for the baby or simply a paid-for childcare for the baby so that the parents can catch a break. Having a baby can be overwhelming and can wreak havoc on a relationship. The couple will not have a lot of time to just enjoy each other’s company. You can even give a gift certificate for a pre-paid massage, manicure, pedicure or spa day.
