Baby Shower Gifts: Multiple Items That Are Never Enough
Today, on Redhead Mom, I’m sharing a partnered guest post about Baby Shower Gifts.
If the new mom-to-be has a few items on her baby registry that have double or triple the quantity, that means that she’s had good advice from a helpful mama to go over all of the things that she’ll need the most. However, if you’re a mama and notice that some of the items she has aren’t enough or aren’t on the list at all, you can help her by buying extras of the items you feel she may be short on. Bottles, binkys, onesies, diapers, wipes, and burp cloths are obvious items that she’ll need more of than just one pack. If you want to think outside the box, here are a few useful items to have multiples of that aren’t as obvious.
If you want to jump to the next step and gift something that will be of use for a very long time then you should opt for baby tableware. A lot of mums receive blankets and diaper bags that will be in use for the first months, but baby tableware is a good choice whenever she starts to introduce baby to solids and will be useful in the long run as well. Tableware made from plastic can harm the child and is not eco-friendly, instead try to choose tableware that is made from organic ingredients, such as wood or bamboo. For instance, organic baby plates or non-toxic lunch boxes for toddlers can be good choices and you can add some cuteness to the bundle to make it more attractive.
A lot of moms-to-be request only one diaper bag on their registry. However, some moms will find themselves in search of another diaper bag once baby arrives and they are able to test it out. Some moms will find that the diaper bag isn’t as comfortable or convenient as they thought it would be. Having more than one diaper bag may also be helpful if dad, the nanny or the grandparents could use an extra one for a day spent with baby. The leather diaper bags at Azaria don’t disappoint. Their diaper bags are roomy enough for multiple kids if mom is having twins, can grow with baby as their things get bigger and make it easy for parents to store their items also. If you’re looking for something a little more budget-friendly, diaper bags from Ergobaby are a great option, especially for first-time moms who need to get used to carrying a diaper bag.
Similar to onesies, a zip romper from Zipease makes it a lot easier for diaper changes since the zipper is located at the bottom instead of at the top, where zippers and buttons are usually located on most onesies. With the zipper being located at the bottom, your baby’s tummy, chest and back aren’t exposed. Instead, only the legs come out so baby can stay comfy and warm from the waist up. It’s worth having more than a few pairs of these, especially during the cool fall and winter months. This soon-to-be mama will love not having to undress all of her baby for each diaper change. She’ll most likely want to know where you got them from so she can stock up since they come in a variety of sizes, colors and designs.
Baby onesies at The Spunky Stork are all about making onesies with the cutest puns and expressions for every type of personality. These onesies also come with buttons at the bottom and are made from 100% certified organic cotton. Gifting these for upcoming holidays and occasions is not only thoughtful, but it’s also a great way to give mama a matching top as a little gift for her, too. A lot of these onesies coordinate with adult sizes for mom and dad so the whole family can match together. If you’re buying a few of these onesies as gifts, make sure to buy them in different sizes as babies tend to hit growth spurts faster than we can blink. This way, at least they can have a fun onesie to look forward to with each stage.
You can help mama save some money on household items she’s sure to use daily. Items such as baby-safe detergent (Dreft) can help her save money on all of the loads of baby laundry she’ll be doing for the upcoming year. Another household item that you can bet she’ll use daily are bottle brushes. It’s hard to get excited over items such as these, but she’ll be so grateful to be stocked up with them when the time comes. A cute way to gift these types of items to make them fun is to place them in a basket and wrap them with clear wrap and a bow.
If you’re a mama yourself and can think of other items you wish you had multiples of, definitely add them to the list. Afterall, moms look out for each other, and what better way to start than with must-have items to make life easier for the soon-to-be mom and baby.[wl_faceted_search]
