Thinking Outside the Baby Shower Gift Box

Baby Showers are launched to “give away” to the expectant mother. Adding a baby to the family requires adding a large amount of new inventory to the medicine cabinet and food pantry. It also means filling the dresser drawers and changing tables with the many supplies that will be used in caring for the new baby.

The new baby is likely to get all kinds of baby bottles and little one-piece outfits with cute pictures. There will be bottle after bottle of lotions and soaps to keep the newcomer smelling fresh and sweet. Then there will be the little socks in the soft pastel colors to make those little baby feet nice and warm.

Stop for a moment, if you want, and think about Mom. While I’m sure Mom will be 100% grateful for all of the shower gifts mentioned above, these gifts are technically for the baby and not for Mom. Time to think outside of the baby shower box and remember Mom.

Mom’s bath time will now be reduced by 80% (note: not a scientifically proven number) with the new addition, so how about we help her enjoy what little time she has by giving her a bath set of her own! ? She would love to have some bath salts and oils for the bathtub. When you get out of the bathtub, you will enjoy being able to enjoy a fresh body lotion with your favorite scent. Oh, that more comfortable feeling you could get from being wrapped in a soft new bath towel after your relaxing bath.

Adult-only time will be a precious commodity with a 97.8% reduction after the arrival of the new baby (note: once again, this is not a scientifically proven number). You could be the one to help the new mom enjoy this moment more by giving her a new set of wine glasses or cocktail glasses.

The kitchen aid would also make a wonderful gift for the new mom. Most likely, the time Mom has to spend in the kitchen will not be reduced. In fact, chances are high that Mom will have to spend an even greater amount of time in the kitchen. Why aren’t you the one helping her here? There are many exceptional baby shower gifts that could make cooking time a breeze. A well-made silverware set could save mom time and energy. There are a host of small kitchen appliances that can make Mom’s life easier. Coffee makers, food processors, blenders, kitchen tool sets. The ideas are almost limitless

I have provided you with some non-scientific numbers just to prove another fact that may very well be scientifically supported. 1000% is the increase in enjoyment the new mom will get from the baby shower gifts that are for her to enjoy in her limited new mom time. I don’t want you to forget to buy things for the baby, but I want you to remember mom too.

Please be sure to think outside of the baby shower gift box!
