practical gifts for baby shower

What were the best gifts you received at your baby shower? Or if you didn’t have a shower, gifts before baby was born?
An “overnight box” filled with baby panadol/nurofen/wind drops/ bonjela/ etc All the things you don’t know you need until it’s 3am and you have a screaming baby!

Were you gifted anything that you never got around to using?
I didn’t use Singlets that we were given (ones that didn’t clip at the bottom)

Did you receive any gifts at your shower that were for you (not baby) and if so, what were they?
Yes, meals to heat up once we arrived home with baby! Coffee and pedicure voucher.

Now that you’re a Mum, what’s your ‘go to’ baby shower gift?
An overnight box and the feeder (like Bernadette said) 👍, teething jewellery & the boon rusk holder (stops those bad boys dropping on the floor!)

A single tip for labour/delivery day
The baby is coming out one way or another so be prepared to go with the flow

“The best gift is all the things you don’t know you’ll need until it’s 3am and you have a screaming baby!”
