If you’re heading to a baby shower soon and you’re wondering what to take with you as a gift, wonder no more!
Props For Baby’s Birth Announcement
All new parents love taking pictures for their baby’s birth announcement. Not just any picture, though. It needs to be Insta Worthy. There’s the one where Daddy holds the baby in the car seat and walks out of the hospital doors, with the mother trailing just far enough behind to take a perfectly positioned picture. There’s the one at home in a bright white setting to really make sure the filter shows off the baby’s jaundice. We’ve seen them all!
You can’t go wrong with a funny dummy or bib. Using your baby as a source of constant entertainment will never get old. You could buy a moustache dummy to give the baby an unkempt look, or a dummy with big teeth for even more comic effect.
Babies could actually be quite sassy - think Stewie from Family Guy. Let the bib do the talking with ‘We both know that’s not an airplane’ emblazoned on the front of one, or even the inspirational Lizzo lyric ‘just took a DNA test turns out I’m 100% your baby even when I’m crying crazy’. Alternatively, how about one that declares ‘Straight outta mommy’ in the wise words of the NWA.
Have fun with it!
Baby Milestone Cards
Baby milestone cards are a lot of fun because you have them hold one and snap a picture and they have no idea that it’s actually quite embarrassing. Yay for creating pictures ready for their 18th birthday! You could give cards that say ‘I’m the reason mommy drinks’ or even ‘today I did an explosive poop’. That last one will go down well with all of their teenage friends at their 18th birthday party!
Baby Dribbler Box
What’s a baby dribbler? Like a hamster’s water bottle that you attach on the side of the crib for a baby. Ok, don’t panic - it’s a joke, it's just the box really - you can put your ‘real’ baby gifts inside! How fun is that? You can get a laugh this way without actually buying a questionable gift - which I’m sure would make the parents question your true character. Babies can be a wonderful source of fun and laughter.
Be smart - make your baby’s tummy time count for something by putting them in a mop all-in-one and having them shuffle all over the floor. The parents will save time, and when the one who works arrives home they won’t say ‘what have you been doing all day?’
An Adult Colouring Book
An adult colouring book could contain Funny ‘mum’ style pictures to colour - such as bottles of wine. Colouring is actually very therapeutic, so this could be a great gift for the mum who needs a little therapy.
