The baby’s birth is just around the corner and everyone is waiting patiently to meet the new little one, but in the mean time you are beginning to consider your baby shower gifts. It’s always tricky isn’t it? Do you get a gift that the new mom will enjoy for herself, or do you opt for a gift for the new baby? You could even go for a combination of the two. Well, to help you make this important decision, here are some great gift ideas.
Something that will last as a family heirloom
Many of us have a precious heirloom that was handed down to us through the generations, so what better gift to get than something that can start off a new family’s journey? One of the best heirloom gifts you could buy is a beautiful charm bracelet with a starter charm.
The beauty of a charm bracelet is that the mom to be can choose to add charms that mean something to her life, so that when it is passed down it holds meaning. This charm from Michael Hill is a great start for beginning a bracelet. It is simple, decadent and something that will add beauty to the mom’s wrist.
Something that is just for her
The last few weeks of any pregnancy are filled with excitement and also nerves. It is the time when you need the most rest and the most pampering, so what better gift to give than a spa voucher? The new mom could use this before or after the birth as a means of de-stressing or simply just to have time to herself.
If you do choose to go down this path, then you must make sure the spa offers packages that are suitable to new mums. Many spas offer specific pre-birth packages that include facials, foot massages and Jacuzzi passes – total heaven for the tired mum!
Something to mark the pregnancy in a fun and creative way
Everyone loves a present that they can make their own and let’s face it, moms-to-be are usually given stacks of baby clothes. One of the most popular creative presents, is a photo shoot to mark the pregnancy. How the photo comes out can be chosen by the mom; inspiration can be found in abundance, from Demi Moore’s classic nude pregnancy photo to one that is fully clothed. Either way it is a chance for the mom to be to dressed up and have their hair done.
If you are looking for a slightly more unusual present, you could opt for the gift of a plaster cast or bronzed mould of the pregnancy tummy. This can then be decorated however you choose and offers a lovely reminder of the journey she will have gone through.
