Midday Fix: Baby shower gift suggestions from Limor Suss
DIY Gift Basket
Don’t want to get one item or are all the good items from the registry gone? Don’t worry—go to the store and make a gift basket with smaller items. Add in some onesies, baby bottles, baby shampoo and other items the new mom will need. You can also make mom a travel pack for when she goes to the hospital, which will include a brush, snacks, and other items she might not even think about.
Baby Items $10-$50 at Burlington Baby Depot
AVEENO Baby Wash & Shampoo, Baby Daily Moisture Lotion at drugstores
Kind Mini Bars at KINDSnacks.com
Ready-Made Gift Basket
Baby showers are a fun time to pull out old photos of the mom-to-be and even expecting
grandparents. YesVideo is a digitizing service that takes old media files and converts them into digital formats so you can treasure the memories forever.
Split the Cost on a Splurge Item
If the only things on the registry are either $2.99 or $299 and you feel lost, the best thing to do is get a few girlfriends together and get one nice gift. Still not sure what to get? Check out www.WeeSpring.com to get reviews on baby products and you can be in the know from parents that have purchased the item so you can decide which item is best to buy.
