Gift Idea : Baby Shower/Mummy to Be

baby shower gift ideas - hamper for mum to be and books for baby

I never really know what to buy when I go to Baby Showers so tend to stick to pampering goodies for the mummy to be. A lot of people forget about poor mummy and buy for the baby so this is always quite a safe bet. This was actually a very organised baby shower and we were given a list of things that mummy & daddy needed, one of these things was a baby’s first year book, after seeing this book for a bargain £5 in the books bought into work from the book man (also available on-line here) I couldn’t resist buying it to go alongside my pamper hamper.

The book is beautiful and contains so much including a family tree and things to fill in before the baby is born up until they are two years old. It includes everything from first things, costs of everyday items, clothing fashions, eating, walking, talking – everything! At just £5 it really is a steal, mummy to be was VERY happy with it.

    the thing about pampering stuff as it may not be suitable for a pregnant mother, ive got a gift on my baby shower- coconut oil, when i read instructions on how to use it it stated not suitable for pregnant

      That is something that I never even considered, I didn't realise that some pampering products wouldn't be suitable for pregnancy! If I did get any that aren't she can enjoy them when the baby comes along, if she gets a chance! x

    The book looks gorgeous. None of my friends are at the baby stage yet but I can't wait for baby showers to start!
