There are many gift choices available when you’re trying to find one for your friend, family member or co-worker’s baby shower. The number of items made just for babies can be overwhelming. There are also gifts made especially for showers. Choosing one can be a complicated process especially if you’re not a parent yourself. But you can make this process much simpler if you go by a few guidelines.
First of all, check the registry to find exactly what the parents-to-be need for their new family member. This will show what they already have and what they don’t. This will prevent you from getting the same gift. There are also online registries that allow you to buy from the site or you can get a printed copy of the list. Friends and family can help by picking out a gift that their budget allows. The registry will allow you to choose comfy baby shower gifts in Singapore with ease. If you’re still not sure of what to get, think what will be useful for the parents in the days to come. If you’re on a strict budget, you can think out of the box and get something that’s not on the registry. Most parents-to-be include the registry information on the invitation that you receive for the shower. It’s okay to ask the person throwing the shower if the parents are registered if you don’t receive that information.
It’s also important to find out if they’re expecting a baby boy or girl when you’re choosing gifts for baby shower. This way you can go for a themed gift set. There are delightful gifts specially made for girls and boys that the parents will appreciate. For example, you can get a bassinet for the baby girl that it embroidered with flowers, ribbons, butterflies and the like. But there are times when the parents don’t find out the baby’s gender at the beginning leaving it to be a surprise. In such an instance, you can buy gender neutral gifts. Some examples are clothing and blankets in colours such as browns, greens and yellows. You can also go for gifts that would be practical like diapers and bottles.
You don’t always have to choose soft toys and clothing. There are lots of basic and practical gift options like diapers, bottles, pacifiers, bibs, towels, bowls, plates, spoons, baby wipes and onesies. These can be quite useful for the parents and it will ease them on their daily routine tending to the baby. The apartment or house in which they are having the baby will have to be baby proofed. There are certain areas of the house that can be dangerous for a baby who has learnt to crawl or walk such as stairs, cabinets, electrical sockets etc. You can purchase a few items that will help the parents make their house safer such as safety gates to close off rooms and latches for cabinets and drawers.
