It can be hard to come up with different ideas for baby shower and there is nothing worse than showing up to all of your friends baby showers with the exact same presents you had already given to others . I like to buy useful but pretty presents and I really like to try and support Irish while doing it , buying from small family run businesses means you are helping people put food on their table and send their kids to hurling 😉 As I am currently pregnant and buying new baby items I have added my favourite useful items from some really lovely Irish companies !
Leanun Designs- baby feeding tracker
I saw this on Eimear from the two darlings instastories a few months back and immediately purchased it ! It is a baby activity tracker where you can note every feed , nappy and times of feeds – I think this will be so handy when the twins come along ! This is priced at €12.50
Jackanory – Muslin Clothes
Jackanory is a fab kid store that has some beautiful kids clothes and all the accessories you actually need , they have fantastic packaging which , to me , is a lovely touch ! I have already purchased some of these beautiful muslin clothes from the brand The Fox In The Attic . These are priced at €8
Pip and Ruby – Alternative Mile Stone Cards
I have seen these really funny mile stone cards on Pip and Ruby and I think they would make the coolest baby shower presents , its really nice to find an alternative present ! These retail at €11.99
PlePlePle – Baby Blankets
The most useful thing you can have for newborns and older babies are really nice blankets , I mean you can use them for swaddling , for the buggy or to lay them on the floor . The blankets from PlePlePle are some of the most beautiful I have seen and I think they would make such a nice present ! They retail at €29
Ok , not every one agrees with dummies but for us personally they were a godsend and we will be using them again for the twins ! Any parent who has used dummies will know how easily they get lost ! These Dummy clips are so handy and also very cute – These would be such a useful present . They retail at €12.95
Moobles and Toobles – Teethers
Teething is envitable when you have small babies , I have found that wooden teethers make such a difference for their little gums ! These ones from Moobles and Toobles are so pretty as well as functional and I will for sure be getting two of these for the twins ! These retail at €6 which I think is great value !
O Briens press – Baby books
I think books are just the best present you can give anyone for a baby shower – I came across this one on instastories last week and as I am married to a huge GAA fan this book has been added to the twins Christmas list ! This book retails at €8.99
