I was preparing for a friend's baby shower and realized that baby showers are totally different now that I am a mom. Being a mom and shopping for a gift is completely different because YOU KNOW some of the things that are totally useful (and useless).
A friend of mine recently received a cashmere cardigan for her daughter from a generous aunt who is not a mom. (So beautiful and generous but so not practical). Hopefully this aunt will also give cashmere gifts to the mom! :) But yes, the little girl looked pretty special in her cashmere cardigan.
I actually received some great (and useful gifts) that I hadn't registered for from some smart friends:
-SNAP AND GO
-Registration for a free Mom and Baby class at a local centre (SO SMART)
I have given three slings (baby carriers) to new moms and I think that that is an extremely useful gift (as long as you know the size and not the brands that have been recalled). In fact my friend Bernie and I were talking about the sling yesterday and how you can just put it in your purse and pull it out when you need it. She actually went out and bought herself a second one to have on hand.
So today--what is your FAVE thing to give as a shower gift now that you are a mom?
Happy Friday and have a wonderful weekend!
