Your best friend is having her baby shower this weekend and you still haven’t gotten a present. If that isn’t enough of a dilemma, you have no idea whether it’s going to be a boy or a girl! Well, stop worrying now, because you can easily get the perfect gift regardless of the gender! There are actually tons of items you can buy that don’t depend on these little details, and you never need to leave home to get them! Here are a few ideas on what you can do.
Check with the mother-to-be on whether she might have registered at baby stores. Much like wedding registries, a lot of baby stores allow you to tag items you want to get, and when people are looking for what to gift you, they can purchase items on your wish list. Once the item gets purchased, it gets checked off the list, and this way it ensures that no two people end up gifting the same thing. If Mommy has registered, all you need to do is pop down to the store and pick up the item that best fits your budget, have it gift wrapped, and you’re all set for the baby shower.
If you don’t have time to go to a store in person, there is always the internet. Online stores have it all, from the strollers to the changing tables, you name it, it can all be found on the net. Buying baby clothes Hong Kong online, for example, is an absolute breeze and it’s not hard to get it right. If you don’t know the gender, get something in a neutral colour. Yellows, greens, and oranges are great for boys and girls, and you can be sure Mommy will be relieved that you didn’t get a bright pink bonnet for her little boy!
The Local Infant Store
Whatever your experience or opinions when it comes to online shopping, there’s nothing like going to straight to the store and making sure that the baby clothes you’re buying are soft and thick. You can’t really tell if you’re buying it on the net, can you? And it really doesn’t take much time to pick out a pair of booties, infant bibs, or onesies.
Something for Mommy
You don’t need to get something for the infant, like everyone else probably will be doing. Why not pick something up for the mother-to-be? It could be a customizable baby book that she can record all baby’s firsts, or a gift basket with items she can pamper herself with. What she probably would love best is a voucher for a spa day – you can find pregnancy-based treatments quite easily too!
So you see, you’ve got plenty of options given your limitations! Now whatever you choose to gift your pregnant friend at her baby shower, you can be sure she’ll be a happy mommy!
