While choosing their Baby Gifts, whether it is a baby cloths, baby toys, or baby accessories, Baby Shower guests should consider couple of things:
• First of all, if the couple going to have their first baby, you might want to get something practical as your newborn present.
• Are they expecting a boy or a girl? That might help you to make the right choice.
• You might ask the future parents or the Baby Shower host whether the couple has special registry. If yes, you can choose something from their gift registry.
• You should also try to select a baby girl or a baby boy gift that can be returned if the future parents want to get a different size or colour.
• If you decide buying baby clothes, always remember that babies grow sooo quickly. Don't buy anything smaller than 000. New parents will appreciate baby clothes in bigger sizes that can be used a little bit later. But also don’t forget to consider what the season will be when the baby reaches the size you're buying.
