One of my best friends is finally going to be a daddy and I couldn’t be more excited for him. So when he asked me to compile a comprehensive list of everything baby will need in that all important 1st year, I couldn’t be more excited to help. After all that’s what friends are for, right? This inspired me to create a comprehensive list of everything baby will need from birth right up to their first birthday, which guests can purchase from online which making it a lot easier to keep on top of and prevent getting 3 of the same items. I love baby showers and all the planning and excitement that goes along with it.
While creating ‘my original’ baby shower Gift List,which I had saved, thanks to Amazon. I was able to use this as the basis of the gift list. I know creating these can take up precious time, so thought by sharing this with other expecting mothers and fathers to be & friends of expectant parents hosting a baby shower, may also find this useful if you don’t have a clue what to get.
I’ve created one long gift list to choose from, which gives you the option of a Girl or Boy and have included Breastfeeding & Bottle fed baby products. As each will have their own slightly different requirements. I have provided a choice of quality baby products, as well as a more expensive product choice as each individuals preferences & finances will differ.
I have most of these products and prefer quality, well known, trusted brands that I love and use every day. All of which I am more than happy to recommend. When I compiled my gift lift of things we needed for our baby shower, I was aware of so many different products on the market that you really don’t need and will never really use even if only for a short time. So I looked for things that I would be able to make good use of without wasting money or precious space trying to store baby products we didn’t need and things we would be able to keep once we were done with them, for baby no.2. So you can be sure to expect the same with the Gift List I have created. I also received some really useful things that I would never have thought to get or add to my gift list which have come in extremely useful, so have included these for you as well.
It’s amazing how much stuff you need for one little person. I thought I might mention that we started out using Pampers micro nappies for our little girl as she was so petite and tiny that the nappies we did have for her were way too big, but as she out grew these we changed to Huggies, which you can only buy from Costco online or in store for £41 a box of 198 nappies. It’s a “huge saving” and the quality of nappies are amazing too. I haven’t had any nasty leaks or poop explosions as we called them. As opposed to Pampers nappies which just didn’t seem to contain these nasty little surprises.
I hope my Baby Shower Gift List from Birth to 1st Birthday is as useful as friends have found it to be.
