Looking for great baby shower gifts that babies and moms will love?
Let’s be honest here, as grateful as we always should be, we’ve all received gifts for our kids that we don’t really get to use. Baby bottles that are left unused, pacifiers still in the package, unread parenting books and many more. As someone who loves giving gifts to new moms, I want to make sure that the receiver will truly appreciate and use what I gift them with. Based on what I went through as a new parent back then, I think the following are some of the most appreciated baby shower gifts.
Diapers – disposable or re-usable diapers are much appreciated because kids poop. Like, A LOT. I remember how happy I was each time one of my sisters-in-law visited us bearing packs of diapers. They can be costly you know, so I know that new moms would appreciate the gesture.
Wet Wipes – check a new mom’s bag, 90% of the time, you will find wet wipes. Babies attract a lot of wet icky stuff. We consider them as our sword in this battle. Battle against dirt, that is.
Educational Toys – as much as we hate noisy, hard-to-assemble and talks-in-the-middle-of-the-night educational toys, we love them for our kiddos! If it will help our kids learn the ABC (and give moms more Facebook time!), send them our way! :p
Books – because babies and kids can never have enough books. Nuf said.
Natural and Safe Baby Skin Care Products – If you’ve ever been a new mom once in your life then you would understand when I say that babies bring out the OC in mothers. Babies are delicate and new moms want nothing but the best for their baby’s skin. Preferably those that contain 100% certified natural ingredients and 0% harsh chemicals.
The good news is, if you are looking for the best baby shower gift for a soon-to-be-mom friend or even for your own babies, Intelligent Skin Care, Inc. (Belo) has just launched their skin care line for babies that are clinically proven gentle on the skin for everyday use. Ingredients on each product were meticulously selected to ensure that they are natural, safe and gentle for your baby. Bonus : The entire family can use these products too!
Just take a look at what’s in their baby skin care line below:
Cocoa Butter is an ingredient that contains antioxidant qualities that protect skin from the outside. It keeps the skin healthy by strengthening and deeply moisturizing it. With its anti-inflammatory properties, it also relieves common skin irritations like rashes.
Shea Butter is a known superfood for the skin, as well as the hair. It heals, protects, nourishes, and moisturizes skin from damage and dryness. Because it is natural, gentle, and soft, it is suitable for all skin types especially the delicate and sensitive skin of babies. It naturally heals common skin conditions of babies like eczema and diaper rash.
Sweet Almond Oil has the ability to lock moisture into the skin. It is also a good exfoliator to help remove dead skin cells and stimulate the development of healthier skin. It is generally safe for all skin types, including delicate baby skin.
All are safe, gentle and and natural which makes all Belo Baby skin care products perfect for wee ones and this is something that all mothers want for their babies.
Belo Baby Bar Soap – A 100% all natural soap with no harsh chemicals. Just between the two of us, I have been using this to wash my face each day because I have sensitive skin and this one is just perfect for me. Does not leave my face dry and doesn’t have the strong strength that most bar soaps have.
Belo Baby Cologne – My daughter’s favorite among all the products! I love them too because of the delicate scent and doesn’t give me headache like most strong scented colognes do!
Scents Available: Cool Drizzle, Happy Tickle and Sweet Snuggle.
My favorite is the Cool Drizzle because it has this fresh scent that makes my daughter smelling like she just had a bath. 🙂
Belo Baby Face and Body Lotion – this one is light on the skin, non-greasy and has a sweet powdery scent which leaves my daughter’s skin smelling like a baby! Love it!
Belo Baby Hair and Body Wash – A gentle skin and hair cleaner that leaves my daughter’s skin soft to touch! Doesn’t lather that much which of course is an indication that it does not contain harsh chemicals that makes other liquid soaps so bubbly. Makes my daughter’s hair soft and smells heavenly too!
So there! Those are my top picks for Baby Shower Gifts and I know that many new moms and soon to be moms will agree with me too!
