Whether you are attending a small in-person gathering or a virtual Zoom party, a Baby Shower is a wonderful way to celebrate an impending new arrival. This year it is difficult to provide new parents with the hands-on support that they need and choosing the right gift feels more important than ever.
If you are feeling overwhelmed or a little bit lost about what exactly to get, this simple gift guide is here to help. From cuddly blankets for baby to self care for parents, you will find what they need most on this list.
For little babies the adjustment from a warm womb to the chill of the outside world is a big one, especially for those born in winter. With a fleecy pramsuit, baby can enjoy their 1st winter walk or snuggle up at home in a soft star wrap.
Ask any new parent and they will tell you that what they miss the most is an uninterrupted night’s sleep. Make their nights (and days) easier with a Purflo baby bed, designed to support and soothe newborns. And remember, babies can never have too many blankets but you can never go wrong with a cellular blanket, it’s called a classic for a reason.
Taking care of a new baby is a lot to handle, so take care of Mum and Dad with some easy at-home pampering. Keep them comfortable in a personalised waffle robe during late night feeds or after a long relaxing bath with a bottle of cowshed Bath & Shower Gel.
Bedtime stories are a special time for parents to snuggle with their new bundle and soothe them to sleep. Make this time for family bonding even more special with a personalised story book that will bring their favourite fairy stories to life.
Tempting though it may be to buy even more sets of those adorable newborn babygrows, we promise that they already have enough. Instead, we recommend some slightly bigger sleepsuits and sweet outfits that they can grow into, this way new parents will feel prepared.
As difficult as it is to imagine, this new life won’t always be so little. Give new parents a way to make these early moments last forever with a record book to keep track of key moments, some keepsake drawers to store little trinkets from their 1st year or a milestone blanket to watch them grow.
We get it, everything in life is a lot right now. Get them everything they might need in one go with a gift set. Luckily we have lots to choose from, full of blankets, bunnies, towels, teddies and robes for a 1st year filled with snuggles.
