Baby showers are a very important event in every woman's life who is expecting. One of your friends is due to have a baby and you don't have any idea regarding what gift you should get her. It is not really a problem because a lot of baby specialty shops are located across the US. There are a lot of resources on the internet that can give you an idea about what your friend may need for the newborn. It is not really a good idea to buy an outfit for the newborn because it would fit the baby only for a week or so. Out of so many ideas one idea I like the most is to gift the new parents with all the safety devices that the child may need when they grow up a bit which may include safety rails, or cabinet locks that can safeguard the baby from falling out of bed or going down stairs.
Before you start considering the gifts, it is necessary to come up with a theme. For instance the theme can be bath time. In this time a lot of creativity can be shown. That is by making the basket that would hold the gifts like a bathtub. And put in all the supplies that is needed for the first bathe of baby. Soaps, lotions, soft towel and washcloths can be placed into the gift basket made in the shape of bath tub. Wrap it up in gift sheets and make a small bow on the top of it. It would be a very useful gift and also would look great.
There are choices of so many themes, it is up to you to decide which one you want to put together. Yet another good theme can be travel theme, which means to put all the items required to feed the baby while travelling. A portable foldable chair is inexpensive and it would be a great idea to carry it on travel. The other things that can be put together in the theme can be disposable bibs, feeding bottles and containers as well. These items can be assembled in the form of a chair and presented which is not only a great idea but would be a lot of fun too.
Another good theme for baby shower gifts can be safety. This can comprise of all things that might be needed once the baby starts to crawl. All cabinets reachable by child should have locks. Knob covers to prevent opening of doors by baby is a good thing to be put into safety basket. A first aid kit for a baby is a great thing too.
I hope all these ideas would be of great help to you in deciding on great gifts for baby shower of your friends and your mind will be filled with so many ideas when you walk into a specialty store to purchase gifts for baby shower.
