If you are feeling creative then building your own nappy cake is a great unique gift for the baby. The main foundation of a nappy cake consists of nappies obviously and rolled up clothing. You can then tuck in any other goodies you want. Bottles of lotion and creams work great as well as blankets and sleep suits and a teddy bear as a topper. If forming a cake is a little out of your comfort zone, you can use all the same items to put together a special hamper. Wrap it in cellophane with a giant bow and you’ll be good to go!
Another great gift idea is to get something practical for baby and mum to be. This could be baby monitors, a bottle steriliser system, or if you are feeling super generous or putting money together as a group, you could go for something larger like a bouncer or car seat. As cute and wonderful as babies are, they are the expensive little beings so new parents would really appreciate gifts that are a necessity.
And don’t forget mum to be!
The lovely ladies that bring the precious life into this world also could do with a little pick me up after an emotional nine months. For mum, you can pick up a spa day voucher for the perfect relaxing break once the chaos is over. Be sure to get one that’s either pregnancy friendly or has a long expiry date so it can be used once mum and baby have settled in. For something more budget friendly, put together a spa in a jar or hamper including all the essential must haves for a relaxing day.
