Pregnant mum before her baby shower

What to Buy for a Baby Shower 

When your friend shares the exciting news that she’s having a baby, adopting or going through surrogacy, there will be hugs, some belly rubs and a few happy tears. Before you know it, your loved one will be close to entering a new stage in her life.

Baby showers, joint parties and sprinkles can be such an overwhelming moment in any new parent’s life. Gone are the rules and traditions of just having a female-bonding shower. Husbands, boyfriends and partners are becoming involved with the preparation process alongside the expecting mother and her fairy godmothers/fathers. These days showers have themes, games, happiness, laughter and the all-important food. The main priority is to send the expecting family on their way with the knowledge of how to welcome their newborn into the fold.

Some parents decide to take the registry route, which is a great alternative if it fits your budget. If you want a more personal touch, then this guide on what to buy for a baby shower is for you. We have handpicked a range of baby sleep gifts that your loved ones didn’t know they needed, but will come to depend on for 16 hours a day once their baby arrives!
