Baby Shower Gifts

aby showers may be an American invention but they have become very popular in the UK. A number of companies now offer a ‘Wish List’ for them – rather as we have traditionally had Wedding Lists.

But there are still a large number of present buyers who prefer to buy something special. And special usually means beautifully packaged. In fact, where Baby Showers are concerned, it is often the beauty of the packaging that is key. We are looking at the pleasure of the mum-to-be excitedly opening the present. It is kudos to the giver that the gift is so beautiful.

But that doesn’t excuse the buyer from giving something that is useful! In fact, a mum who receives a beautifully wrapped unexpected present that actually turns out to be something she finds so wonderfully useful, builds a bond between her and the giver!

Here we list a number of presents which fulfil all this. Why not have a section purely devoted to beautiful products, all angling to be given as a gift?

2017 to see expansion of Cuddledry range

This year will see some exciting new developments from leading international bathtime brand, Cuddledry.

Best known for their multi award-winning ‘Handsfree’ Cuddledry® baby bath towel – the Cuddledry range has expanded in recent years to include beautiful character toddler and child towels, safety focussed bath toys, bestselling children’s hair towels, gifts and accessories.

In 2017 the Original ‘Handsfree’ towel is seeing a revamp, with beautiful new gift packaging being introduced and stylish colourways – as it is such a strong seller for gift buyers as well as a nursery ‘must-have’ for new parents. The Original Cuddledry baby towel attaches to mum or dad with an easy-release neckpiece, so that baby can be bathed and lifted from the water safely and confidently, and then snuggled quickly dry without anybody getting soaked in the process! The Cuddledry® is now a timeless classic – known and sold globally – which makes baby bathtime safe, simple and snug, not a stressful juggling act! Winner of the Mumsnet Best gift for a newborn for the last nine years running, the Cuddledry towel is a bathtime section staple.

Joining the classic Original in 2017 will be some exciting new products for babies, toddlers and parents – watch this space as they are gradually revealed!
