If you aren’t a parent, you may recoil in terror at the thought of attending a baby shower. All those squeals and baby talk, let alone the pressure of choosing the right gift for the mum to be and her impending offspring. The first thing to do is breathe and then think about the mum as well as the baby. If that fails you, we have you covered!
Sun Bunny. Is mum a sun bunny who loves being down at the beach or at the pools? If she is, then it is quite likely that the newborn will become a water baby too! Look for baby swimmers or swim accessories, which will protect new born skin from the sun and aid them in the water.
Hipster mum. If you are attending a hipster shower, have all the other guests coo in delight with a quirky babygro or a cute as a button hat.
Mum is special too! If you are really a duck out of water when it comes to babies, then a treat for mum will be most welcomed. Maybe a maternity cushion to support her during breast feeding and those first few days, or a luxury robe so mum can feel feminine and herself as those first few days unfold.
The rule is, keep it thoughtful, simple and practical and you are sure to survive!
