I don’t know about you but now that my babies are not so young, I struggle with what to get for a new baby whether it be a baby shower gift, a new baby gift or christening gift.
It is especially difficult as I didn’t have baby showers with mine and social media wasn’t nearly as prolific. The reason behind a baby shower is for the mum to be to be ‘showered’ with advice, gifts and support. I know I needed all the advice I could get when mine were babies. There is nothing more daunting than getting home from the hospital exhausted and suddenly having the responsibility for a tiny being who can’t even tell you what they need.
Recently we have been invited to a few baby showers and had no idea what to take, so when we were visited recently by an agent for a brand called LuluJo we couldn’t help being infected with his enthusiasm.
They have two products that we have completely fallen in love with. They have an announcement set available in 5 gorgeous designs consisting of a hat, a swaddle blanket and an announcement card – perfect for letting people know baby has arrived safely and their name. We love the marble design which is unisex so would make a perfect pre-baby gift. Even better it’s pre-washed to save the busy new mum a job. It has a 70% bamboo content which is unbelievably soft and it gets softer with every wash too.
The second is a blanket with milestone cards, perfect for lovers of social media and Instagram. You can show your baby off on their important milestones, keeping family and friends up to date with their progress.
Available in 8 lovely designs with matching age cards from 1 day to 1 year there will be the perfect design for everyone. Made from cotton these are gentle on baby’s skin and the blanket can double up as a playmat or pram blanket too.
The announcement set is £22 and the blanket and milestone cards are £20 so they are affordable as well as beautiful and practical.
