Amazing Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Baby Shower Gift Ideas Having gone through two pregnancies in the last 4 years, I am well aware of the discomfort that mommies endure during their 9 months of pregnancy. Swollen feet, feeling fat, tired, sore backs, it's a lot to go through. This is why I have changed the way I treat baby showers. I mean, it's a great opportunity to pamper the mommy-to-be as well. When my son was born, a few friends of mine pooled together and made me a beautiful basket. Not only did it have some great clothes and toys for my soon to be born baby, they also added a few things for me! It felt sooo nice to be appreciated and pampered, and the gifts they gave me were so useful! They have since converted me to a useful basket giver. This is so valuable, especially to new moms. Below are a few ideas for a basket for baby, and basket for mommy.
