Gifts for All Celebrations & New Parents

by Elise Bowerman

Give a gift worth receiving... we often wait until the last minute to purchase gifts for parties or showers, then pick something ordinary. Stand out from the other gifters, and give a gift with thought and inspiration! 

When giving a gift for a new baby and the parents have other children, please give a small gift to the new big brother(s) and/or sister(s). This is a huge life-change for them, as well, and it shows they are (of course) still loved. Your generosity will go a long way.

Where did everyone go?

You need more help after birth than before. When you’re pregnant, people open doors, carry things, and smile at how much you glow. Once baby comes, where do all those people go? You’re on your own now, expected to know everything, and take care of your baby like every other mom. As if doing it all yourself is some bullsh*t right of passage. We all love baby, but let’s not forget about mom.
