    To welcome a precious new baby into the world is undoubtedly one of life’s most precious moments life. The idea of a baby shower originates from the well-intended thought of showering the mom-to-be with gifts for the baby and for her to use. A baby shower is a very special occasion where we celebrate a new life being born by presenting special hand-picked gifts. It is usually only attended by female family and friends. However, times have changed and so have many customs - nowadays it is not unusual for both men and women to attend baby showers, and the men present the father-to-be with gifts as well!

    it is not always that easy to get original baby shower gifts for mom and baby and a lot of thought goes into buying the perfect newborn baby gift.  A baby gift hamper that includes the essentials like diapers, blankets and bibs is always welcome.

    Personalizing your babyshower gifts with the baby’s name is one of the best ways to create a unique baby shower gift that will warm mom’s heart in an instant. These types of gifts are usually kept as keepsakes after the baby grows older. This makes a personalized baby shower gift such a thoughtful gesture.

    At Bebedeparis know that with a baby shower it is the thought that counts, but sometimes a simple gift such as diapers, is the one that a new mom needs the most. Most babies don’t even wear the newborn ones but goes straight to number 1.

    Nappies & wet wipes are the baby products used the most and it is always welcome as a gift. This is probably why our nappy cakes are such a hit at baby showers. Everyone knows how much the new parents dread having to buy disposable nappies for what seems like a never-ending time. A nappy cake will almost certainly be one of the main decorations at the baby shower, a nice talking point and likely the biggest gift on the table.

    A baby dish set is the perfect practical baby shower gift and something that will only be used once the little one is a little older and can start eating solids.

    Here are a few items that we at Bebedeparis recommend to those who want to give a practical gift at the baby shower but aren’t quite sure what to give. Soft toys are always welcome. A Photo album and/or footprint set make for beautiful, treasured souvenirs. Or how about a teething ring, pacifier clip or pouch as well as bottle pouches that fasten with a small ribbon. Nappy pouches come in very handy, especially when you are traveling.

    As we all know new babies have to be fed every few hours and it often happens that mom and baby aren’t at home for the feeding time and have to breastfeed in a less private setting. Specially designed muslin or breastfeeding covers are now very popular and come in very handy in such cases. With a newborn in the home, there can be no such thing as enough feeding bottles - if you want to present it as a gift, make sure that you know what type/brand bottle the mum prefers.

    When deciding on gifts for a baby shower, think smart. Most new parents are very well prepared for the first few weeks of a new-born’s life. As the baby grows his or her needs change. Baby shower gift baskets aimed at babies aged 3-6 months and older are always welcome.

    One thing we all agree on is that a baby shower is an incredibly special time to celebrate an upcoming birth with the new mommy/ both parents and to show your support with gifts from the heart.
