Photo gifts for baby showers can be an absolute winner, before or after the little one arrives and they sure will last a lot longer than a bottle warmer. It is just such a personal touch and so thoughtful, destined to bring tears to the eyes of the mum to be.
A storybook of names and faces in a child’s life is a perfectly sweet, thoughtful gift for a new baby, babies will love seeing pics of Mum and Dad, siblings, grandparents, and close friends when they get old enough. Board books would be the better option to hold up to rough handling of little fingers. High contrast black and whites are perfect too for those developing eyes.
Of course, as with any photo gift, these require a little bit of lead time to get ready before your event, so start scrolling through your photos or asking the new parents’ relatives to share their stash now, so you can wrap up a sweetly sentimental gift for the parents-to-be on the big day.
Pre baby photo album
When I was pregnant with them, swollen ankles and all. How sweet it would be to collaborate images ahead of time of a glowing soon to be mother, embracing her bump in all its glory. Creating a priceless collection of photos for not only the child but the whole family to look back on on in years to come.
Tip… A nice little touch would be to include handwritten notes from the grandparents, aunts and uncles and big siblings-to-be alongside the photos. A gift like this would make a big impression and doesn’t have to cost the earth.
Framed wall art
Another fantastic idea would be a lovely photo gift for a nursery, with dozens of designs to decorate those still-blank nursery walls, from family tree designs and collage hearts to photo cut-outs. Fill the frames with before and after baby images of mum and dad from their pre baby photo session or all the loving people who are about to come into the new baby’s life and you’ve got a keepsake for generations.
A gift such as this would also provide the child with a deep sense of security letting them know just how deeply there are loved and how very excited family members where to meet them, you could also think about leaving the centre of a multi frame blank to fill in later with babies first portrait. What a wonderful way to shower not just mum but baby with love.
