Need a Baby Shower Gift Idea?
Diapers and Wipes Can Make the Perfect Baby Shower Gift
Finding a great baby shower gift isn’t always a cakewalk. If you aren’t a parent and you haven’t been to more than a few baby showers, you might be wondering what type of gift you should give when attending a baby shower. While it’s certainly helpful to take a look at a store registry the expectant mother is registered with, you may discover that all the gifts have been purchased already and you’ll be left with a feeling of overwhelming dread as you realize you’re going to have to wing this one. Don’t worry. You’ve come to the right place. We have the perfect baby shower gift idea for you.
Practical Makes Perfect
When you are confused about what to buy and the gift registry items have already been depleted, you should focus on a very practical baby shower gift. What do I mean by practical? I mean as practical as practical gets -- diapers and wipes.
Diapers and wipes are two items that each and every parent on earth needs daily for the first few years of their baby’s life. By creating an arrangement of diapers and wipes, you’ll be giving the expectant parents a gift they definitely need and will definitely use. Even if the parents plan to use cloth diapers, they will likely need disposable diapers when they go out shopping or are traveling for prolonged periods of time.
Not All Diapers Are Created Equal
When purchasing diapers and wipes for your baby shower gift, it is a good idea to stick with the “healthier brands.” There is a lot of controversy surrounding the safety of most diaper brands on the market today because they are bleached with chlorine. Parents can certainly cut corners to save money after their baby is born, but for a baby shower gift, why don’t you buy one of the luxury, chlorine-free brands? They are a bit more expensive, but they are environmentally-friendly and they will expose the new parents to a healthier alternative.
Seventh Generation is one company that sells chlorine-free diapers and wipes. Another good place to find chlorine-free brands is at whole foods grocery stores or natural food stores. Trader Joes, a specialty grocer, also sells chlorine-free diapers and, of course, the Internet is also a resource you can use.
One you have your diapers and wipes, arrange them in a cute gift basket with a infant-safe stuffed animal or two. Your baby shower gift is sure to be appreciated and admired.
