Baby showers are super popular and nearly every new mum has one!
Whilst the all the cute baby bits are adorable, there is only so many comforters one baby needs!
What you actually need when a baby is born is some practical gifts that will support your wellbeing during the first few months with baby.
Don’t be afraid to give your guests a list. If they are mums themselves they would like to know their cash is being well spent rather their gift getting shoved deep into a cupboard and been regifted when your next girlfriend is pregnant!
5 Gift Ideas:
Someone that will care for you when you need it most. This will transform your postpartum experience into an enjoyable one and help you ease into your new role as a mother
A money collection for a weekly cleaner/ironing lady
This will allow you to put your feet up and concentrate on what matters most – your recovery from birthing and looking after baby.
Pre-made meals for the freezer
You will need lots of nourishment during postpartum. You maybe tired and baby wants cuddles, so you need something you can quickly defrost.
Preferably someone that will come to you one evening (or someone can take baby for an hour). A bit of self care with a relaxing massage will make you feel like a new woman!
There will be so so so much of it!
Some vouchers to have someone take the laundry and bring it back dry, folded and smelling beautiful will be a load of your mind – excuse the pun!
