Upon receiving the baby shower invite, many people worry about what to buy as a gift. Trying to determine what the parents-to-be have, don’t have, or need can be a challenge. Not to mention, you want to celebrate the new addition with a gift that has both personality and practicality. Never fear, Mocka is here to make life a lot easier. We have compiled some of our best baby shower must-haves to make choosing a gift for your next baby shower a breeze. Check them out!
Let there be Rock!
For the cutest baby shower gift around, you can’t beat Mocka’s Rocking Horse and Larry the Lamb. These beauties allow a child to grow into them rather than out, which means they get years of fun and play. Kids love the soft, woolly fabric on Larry and the classic design of the Rocking Horse means it is a timeless gift. They also make pretty features in a nursery until the baby is old enough to use by themselves (Photo op anyone? Get ready for the #babyspam!).
Sight, Feel and Move
For the quintessential baby shower gift, the Mocka Wooden Playset and Playmat is the way to go. Bought as a pair or separately, these items stimulate a baby’s cognitive skills and sensory system while helping them learn to reach, grab and sit up. The soft, plush mat makes it a favourite among babies and parents alike. The adorable hanging owls on the playset will capture a baby’s attention and are removable if you wish to create your own and make the gift more personal. The perfect ally for any parent, who can place their baby down for some independent play and complete some tasks. That is one gift they’ll be thanking you for!
When in doubt
Gift vouchers always seem to get bad wrap (hehe see what we did there). But we say gift vouchers are awesome. Sent via email, Mocka gift vouchers are ideal last minute baby shower gifts. Beat the gift-giving anxiety and ensure your loved one gets something they really need. Also big, essential items such as cots and change tables can be quite expensive. A timely gift voucher helps out with any financial stress many new parents experience. So forget the haters and give a gift voucher. Just concentrate on getting all the baby snuggles while your loved one shops her (or his) heart out.
