The phrase ‘baby shower’ is still fairly new to the UK, an American concept which has infiltrated British culture slightly less aggressively than Black Friday. However, once you get to the age of about thirty, you’ll start to notice that most of your friends are either married or have their date in the diary, and are even starting to reproduce. From that point, it’s only a matter of time before you get the first baby shower invitation.
Baby showers, if you’ve not heard, are supposed to be social gatherings to celebration the upcoming birth of a baby between the parents-to-be and their friends and relatives. Increasingly, though, it’s becoming more and more about gifts and seeing if guests can outdo each other with the best gifts.
We’re here to help you navigate the madness, and come up with some great ideas to create sentimental value, or alternative buy something that’s actually going to be useful for the baby when he or she arrives.
