What can I buy for a baby shower?

I haven't been to an actual baby shower in more years that I care to remember. My children are grown and the grandchildren are now teenagers. I received an invitation from a friend of a friend to attend a baby shower for someone in their family.

I thought to myself well now I have to go look for a baby shower gift. I went to a couple of stores and I was surprised as to all of the new and helpful things that were available for new mothers and their babies. I wish I would have had some of those convenient items back when my children were babies.

As I walked through the baby aisle I also noticed how expensive cribs, strollers, high chairs, play pens, baby carriers and other items were. I couldn't believe some of those prices!

I must say though that the cribs and strollers were just beautiful, a variety of plush modern designs and styles available, nothing like what we had to choose from when our children were born.

I am from the old school where cloth diapers were washed everyday and bottles were sterilized in a big pot on the stove. Pampers or as we called them disposable diapers were only used when we went out somewhere. By the time my grandsons were born, I never saw anyone use cloth diapers anymore.

Handy Items

Since I hadn't even met the mother to be yet, I had no idea what her likes or her dislikes were when it came to a baby gift. I called my friend and she said," just to get her anything." We didn't even know the sex of the baby so that was no help. I wasn't familiar with the trendy or must have items that new mothers might appreciate.

I thought back to when my two children were babies and some of the practical items that were needed and used daily besides diapers and diaper bags.

I decided to go home and check online for some type of gift sets containing bath products. Baby lotions, powders, oils and shampoos are products you can't do without in caring for your baby.These make good baby shower gifts that you know will be used and appreciated.

There are some affordable baby gift sets available online which made picking out a baby shower gift easy for me. I've received my order, have it wrapped and ready to go for the baby shower. Whether you choose to purchase bath products, a nice layette set or some other baby gift item, you are sure to be pleased with your online selection.
