The flowers are in bloom and summer is knocking on the door. I don’t know about you, but it seems like spring is that special time of year when fresh faces enter the world. The baby shower scene is the most recent one to hit the circuit among my friends. The wave of weddings has slowed down and the baby arrivals are picking up. I must admit I have never been around babies before, and what to bring to a baby shower was a foreign concept. Thankfully, with the help of magazines, friends and TV shows featuring elaborate baby and wedding showers I put the pieces together.
Thanks to Find&Save here are some lovely gifts that any mom-to-be would be thrilled to receive.
Baby Blanket: Wrap up the little bundle of joy in a Weego baby blanket available at Nordstrom. These panel-knit cotton blankets come in the most adorable prints and a gorgeous gift box to boot! I’m personally a big fan of the ‘Five Little Ducks‘ print. Grab one for $79.95, and did I mention it comes in the most perfect gift box?
Bouncer: Keep the baby comfy and safe while they sleep in a whimsical bouncer outfitted with mobiles and soft tunes to lull them to sleep. Take a look, the Fisher-Price “My Little Snug-a-bunny” is only $51.99 at Babies R Us, you’ll love it, because what baby doesn’t look beyond precious cozied up and posing as a bunny.
Sleepwear: Safe and warm? Check and check with the Halo SleepSack, which was awarded with the #1 Safe Sleep Product gold seal. No pillows or blankets needed to help the baby sleep comfortably through the night, or as many hours as they can :) Scoop one up at Target for newborns to infants (prices vary).
Diaper Bag: Just because they’re a new mom, doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish when toting their newborn around. Surprise them with a bag they won’t be afraid to run errands with, like this SkipHop “Versa” diaper bag available for $70 at Bloomingdales. Two front insulated pockets are spacious enough to carry bottles, food and more, along with room for personal items.
Every-hour essentials: If you can’t decide on just one item or you’re looking for a couple of little things, a new mom will shed tears of joy at the site of “Costco” size quantities of diapers, baby wipes, onesies, rompers and bibs. Check out the full Costco baby selection in your area by visiting Find&Save, selecting Costco and shopping by “Baby & Toddler.”
Fear not shoppers! If you’re still stumped on the perfect gift, Find&Save offers a vast selection of baby items from all of your favorite retailers. If you’re looking to knock it out of the park… bring the cupcakes.
