We all love a baby shower! The excitement and anticipation of the mum-to-be and the opportunity to spoil her rotten before the baby arrives. It's a time to spend with your friend, reminisce over an afternoon tea and speculate for the hundredth time, whether the baby will be a boy or a girl.
These days baby shower themes and gifts are a subject that require much research! It's a much more warming feeling that you have bought that special mum-to-be a unique and thoughtful gift that is not only stylish and timeless, but also it has to be tried and tested and very practical.
So to help you to your quest, we will be doing a series of blog posts about the baby shower items that we covet and would love to have been in our baby gift baskets.
