Lots of cotton balls
Baby products, tub toys, etc.
It’s a gamble when you buy a baby shower gift. You can go for something that you know any mom will need but you risk someone else having that same idea. Or, you could decide on a nice outfit but the new mom might not have the same taste as you do. Well, there really isn’t much that you can do about either choice but, if you plan to give Mom a tub for baby, at least you can make it look much different than just an ordinary tub. When you turn it into a gift collection, you give a lot of things that are needed, and you present them in a very unique way. I’ll tell you what I mean…
A baby tub is definitely a necessity, and with many homes having more than one bathroom and tub, the new mom could likely use a second one – if someone else gives a tub for a shower gift. You can get very creative and turn the tub that you give into something so spectacular that the mom will never forget it. Let’s start with the tub and take it from there.
When you fill the baby tub with cotton balls you create a look of bubbles. And, when you put gifts into the bubbly water, you get the attention of everyone at the baby shower! First, fill the tub up with cotton balls – or even cotton. You can buy bulk cotton online. Later, Mom can bag up the cotton balls, and use them to oil the baby’s skin, and in other ways.
After filling the tub with the cotton, add the gifts that you want to give. Bath supplies are a good choice; put in things like baby lotion, baby powder, rolled washcloths and towels, baby rattles, and even tub toys. Other things that can be given with the tub include diapers, onesies, rolled burp cloths, socks, a piggy bank, hair bows, and clothes.
Can’t afford to give a tub, toys, and baby products, on your budget? Make it a group gift, then. Invite everyone who is coming to the shower to bring one gift to put into the tub. Don’t have a tub to give? Other containers that can be used include a plastic bin and a large bucket. No matter what the actual container, make it the centerpiece of the gift table, and Mom will get a real surprise when she sees it!
