Baby present buying for dummies
I don’t know about you, but I feel like everyone around me is pregnant right now. Not just because it seemed like Jessica Simpson was pregnant for eight years, mind you – but because everywhere I turn someone seems to be expecting.
Now, I’m still too young to have to deal with baby showers and first birthdays on a weekly basis, but as the few pregnant women I know do start having babies, I know I’ll start getting antsy at the thought of having to find gifts fit for their babies.
I mean, what do you buy a child too small to even develop his or her own taste? A person who won’t even remember the gift? And then it came to me. You go with products that will make life easier for mum and bub. You know, pampering products that make bed and bath-time less of a chore, and more fun. (Because there is definitely a thing as too many onesies.)
Here are my top picks for buying gifts for bubs…
The on-the-move gift:
Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Getting Started Kit – this bite-sized kit is perfect to throw in the nappy bag for the ultimate in baby care on-the-go. With all the bits you need like Dusting Powder, Diaper Ointment and Buttermilk Lotion, there’s no issue you can’t handle with this kit.
The pampering gift:
Urban Rituelle Mumma & Bubba Organics Beddy Bye Bunny Nursery Set – this super swish gift will definitely impress any new mum. Urban Rituelle’s lavish gift set contains Nursery Mist (to help get baby off to sleep), Massage Oil (for a sleep-inducing rub) as well as a plush Beddy Bye Bunny to cuddle little bodies at night.
The natural mum gift:
GAIA Natural Baby Baby Starter Kit – totally pure, organic and natural, this starter kit is perfect for mums that prefer to head down the natural skin care path. This range is perfect for sensitive skin on little bodies, and won’t cause irritation or redness. Comes complete with Bath & Body Wash, Shampoo, Moisturiser, Skin Soothing Lotion and a Baby Massage Oil.
The bath time gift:
Johnson’s No More Tangles Detangling Spray – the best gift you can give your friend? How about less crying? While this product is for toddlers not babies, it’ll be a gift very gratefully received when their little one gets old enough to start throwing tantrums at bath time. The detangling spray can be used on wet or dry hair and will instantly unravel knots and tangles, eliminating a reason for the toddler to turn on the waterworks!
