If you’ve got a baby shower to organize or if you’re going to one soon, then we’ve got lots of party and gift inspiration for you! Christmas is also coming soon, so check out our fabulous festive baby gifts.
Last minute baby shower
Been busy rushing around getting things ready for the holidays? Little time left for sorting out a baby shower for your friend who is due soon? Don’t panic! Here are the top tips for sorting out a fantastic baby shower quickly:
- Party food and tableware. Buy cupcakes and cakes and decorate them with delightful baby shower themed toppers. Choose ready-made nibbles and dips and display them on pretty tableware. Choose plates, cups and napkins in soft pastels.
- Delightful decorations. Balloons and garlands always look amazing and don’t take long to put up.
Delicious drinks. Buck’s Fizz is a brilliant choice – all you need is orange juice and champagne/sparkling wine (and soft drinks for the mum-to-be or anyone else not drinking alcohol!).
- Gorgeous gifts. Ask your friends attending the baby shower if they’d like to contribute to a baby gift selection. Choose a hamper, or check out our fabulous suitcase sets (perfect to store baby’s toys in later), and fill with gifts like our organic knitted cotton rattles, bonnets, booties, small soft toys and mobiles.
- Music. This is one last party for the mum-to-be to enjoy before the exhaustion of motherhood kicks in! So, help her and your guests feel party fantastic with a fun playlist to tap their toes to! Songs with baby in the title are a great idea. To save you time compiling a list, simply play our Meri Meri Baby Shower Playlist.
Festive baby gifts
No matter the age of the little one, you’ll easily find something they (and their parents) will love here.
For baby’s first Christmas
Rattles are a fabulous toy for a baby to hold, look at and listen to. Our organic knitted cotton rattles are really special, choose an adorable sausage dog, octopus, ice cream cones or cute banana. Or give a clothing gift that will make the baby look Christmas charming, like our organic knitted cotton reindeer bonnet and reindeer booties.
For baby’s second Christmas
Older babies will adore soft toys to hug, plus they look fantastic in their nursery when not being played with. We’ve got a wide range of sensational organic knitted cotton animal toys, including Fionn cat, Buster dog, Pepper bunny, Milo narwhal and Izzy unicorn.
For the nursery:
If your friend’s baby has lots of clothes and toys, how about buying a delightful decorative gift for their nursery, like an entrancing mobile? Our mobiles, with organic knitted cotton characters, include Happy Weather, Under The Sea, Safari and Unicorn themes.
