Picking Out Winter Shower Gifts
When winter baby shower invitations fill your mailbox, it's time to go shopping for adorable little ones on the way. When choosing a shower gift, you can either try to get something for baby or something for the expectant parents. Useful and time-saving items are always welcome, so here are some tips to get the right ones.
Check the Due Date
If you'd like to get some winter wear for baby, check when he or she is due to arrive and then compute his or her winter age. For example, if a baby is due in March, you'll want to look for coats and hats that fit size 6 to 9 months so that all the cold weather months are covered.
Find Out the Nursery Colors
While some winter baby shower invitations may use the nursery colors in their theme, some use neutral colors when baby's gender is unknown or a surprise. If you can find out the nursery colors, then a pretty pillow customized with baby's name or a picture of the parents is a soft, cuddly gift baby can enjoy on into childhood and can turn into a keepsake.
Help the Parents Stay Organized
One more in the family means more love, but also more to keep track of and do. It's easy for parents to get behind on important check-ups and baby milestones, especially if this is their first baby or they're expecting multiples. If you have some family pictures, use them to customize a nice calendar for the expectant parents. If you know the due date, then you can also add important milestones to the calendar such as "Baby may be walking now!" or "Don't forget to vaccinate!".
