Hey Baby. The Art of (Shower) Gifting Well.
Recently in store we were asked a question ...
Attending a baby shower, is it appropriate to gift the Mother rather than the baby?
If you're a Mum, you're of course going to say yes.  And in our world of evolving etiquette and event styles, it's a thoughtful gifting consideration.

But is it right?

Here's our thoughts.

At the end of the day, if you want to gift Mum, YES.  Go for it.  Her world (especially if she's bursting with baby #1) is about to change big time.  So any little personal treats she can sneak in before delivery, she should.
5 Unique Gifting Ideas for Mum-To-Be;
A cup set by Marimekko.  She'll be getting lots of visitors with the arrival of baby.  A new ceramic set would be gorgeous for hosting!
An Aesop item or collection - a body wash, hand cream or face mask are all little luxuries to help her feel special.
A deluxe candle by Palm Beach would be beautiful for her to light at night as she prepares for baby.
A silk pillowcase by Slip.  A (very addictive) treat to help care for her skin and hair.
A reusable bag with style.  Whether it's for baby things or picking up the groceries reusable with style is always going to be welcomed.  Here's our favourites by In Bed, Marimekko & La La Land.

But a baby shower is about celebrating the passage to Motherhood and preparing for baby ...

So if you're attending a baby shower, something definitely should be wrapped for the incoming tiny person.

Toshi Baby is an incredibly cute collection that has been long standing in our brand edit.  Crafted from the softest organic fabrics, the collection specialises in onesies and baby accessories such as bibs, hats and comforters.  It's our number one suggestion if you're gifting baby.

Something that will be used.  Beautiful display pieces are just that, beautiful.  But Mum will appreciate something she'll use so much more than extra dusting =)
Quality First.  A baby is a special bundle.  If you're going to gift, choose the best quality you can.
Tiny details.  If you're ever going to add cute finishes to a gift wrap, a baby shower is the time.  A sweet bow, a flower or a small toy on the outside of your gift are all choices that will delight.
Take time to write a special note.  Words on how the Mother's character will bless the baby will always be well received.
