Your best friend or a family member is due to have a baby in the next few weeks and so now is the time to start organising the baby shower. Baby showers are commonly celebrated around the world; an opportunity to lavish the mother and unborn baby with gifts that will help them in the first few weeks after the birth.

Most newborn gifts include baby grows, clothing, blankets and even toys and bottles. Funky baby clothes are a great way to welcome a new baby into the world with an item of clothing that is different, personalised and best of all made from high quality materials.

Organising the Event

The most important thing when arranging a baby shower is not to wait until the last minute. Babies come when they are ready and there is no control if they come early, which can throw your plans straight out of the water. Rather arrange the event at least a month before the due date to ensure baby hasn't arrived yet.

Decide where to hold the event; this can be at a friend's house or at a restaurant. Make the necessary arrangements and besure to include snacks, drinks and get everyone to bring some great newborn gifts.

The best baby showers are the surprise events, so try and keep this quiet from the mother to be. Let the husband know so he can ensure she doesn't make any other arrangements for that day and then make plans with her to take her somewhere or do something, only to surprise her later with a fantastic baby shower complete with fun games, food and lots of presents.

Choosing a Baby Gift

If it is a close friend or family member that is having a baby, you want your gifts to be personalised gifts for baby. You want to choose funky baby clothes that are unique and different from the gifts everyone else will be giving. Maybe a baby growor t-shirt with a personalised message, something that will be cherished, remembered and used.

When choosing personalised new baby gifts, try and think of something unique. A funny message, the baby's name or eventheir date of birth are fantastic newborn gifts to hand over to the mum-to-be.

I always ensure when I buy funky baby clothes that I am choosing high quality materials, preferably organic and that the printing is done by hand. This just ensures that the garment is durable and the printing I have chosen doesn't peel off.

At the baby shower you can cherish the smile that your cute newborn baby clothes gives to the mum as she opens your present filled with personalised new baby gifts specially for the new member of her family.

Funky baby clothes are made to the highest standard and are an opportunity to put your own message on the item, making them a special and unique gift.
