A Guide to Baby Shower Pressies

A Guide to Baby Shower Pressies

A baby shower is a celebration to mark the upcoming birth of a baby. Bringing together friends and family to rejoice in the occasion, the weeks and days leading up to the big event are the ideal time to ‘shower’ parents with gifts and essential items.

Here at Homecolours we know that it’s not always clear what sort of gifts might be good choices for a baby shower. For that reason, we’ve put together a helpful guide containing some good ideas to make the shower go swimmingly!

When does a Baby Shower take place?

A baby shower usually takes place 4-6 weeks before the due date. This is to make sure that the celebration does not interfere with the smooth procedure of the pregnancy.

However, some people like to hold their shower after the delivery, with the newborn in attendance. There are no hard and fast rules; the main thing is that it should all be done with the parents and baby's convenience in mind.

What could I gift?

Anything that baby might enjoy and might make life easier for the parents are good rules to stick to!

The above Activity Triangle from Little Dutch is a wonderful piece to consider.

Brilliant for introducing a little one to tactile shapes celebrating animal and plant life in a variety of colours and patterns, the interactive toy is sure to engage and amuse. Jam-packed with activities, the gorgeous triangle will be appreciated by babies – and their parents - as they grow.

Another beautifully crafted game that little ones will get many hours of fun from is the Little Dutch Rainbow Wooden Stacker.

Using the domed shapes of the rainbows, kids can make all sorts of roads and tunnels. Perfect for lighting up their imagination, the stackable pieces are capable of creating a delightful exploration of colour and form.

Available in beautifully refined sand colouring, the Ferm Living Sun Music Mobile is ideal for lulling a baby to a peaceful sleep.
The charming mobile is a lovely way to transform a bedroom space. Crafted from linen and using a recycled polyester filling, the friendly sun face of the mobile will offer a lovely look above the cot or bed. 
A little one is bound to be eased into sleep with the tuneful strains of Brahms’s Lullaby gently playing from the mobile. Easy to position and look after, the mobile can be kept clean with a damp cloth.
