    We know, we know … you are in full recovery mode from Christmas, Hanukah, Festivus, or whatever wintertime holiday you celebrate and the last thing you want to think about is buying more gifts.

    But, your friends and family members keep having babies! And with babies, comes the obligatory baby shower. Baby showers came into vogue in the U.S. after the end of WWII, (fittingly) right around the start of the Baby Boom. Typically, baby showers were held for just the first child and only attended by women.

    Today, both males and females are invited to baby showers and they can be thrown for the first or the fifth child born into a family. They are usually held about one or two months before the baby is born, although some people do hold off until after the birth so shower attendees can truly welcome the new baby.

    The constant at any baby shower is the gifts! Simple to elaborate baby shower gifts are a crucial part of any baby shower.

    So we’re here to make things a little easier on you. Here are some never-fail baby shower gift ideas that are sure to garner the oohs and aahs we all love to hear.

    Baby Bath Tub – Okay, okay, it was inevitable. We have to plug the Blooming Bath for Babies, it’s just too stinking cute not to. It wraps up for a shower gift adorably and at just $40, it’s the perfect price point. Or, if you really want to impress, go for the blooming baby bath kit featuring an array of baby soaps and shampoos from Burt’s Bees for just $66.

    Baby Bath Toys – A new baby splish splashing around in a bath tub without some bath toys, isn't right. A great baby shower gift accessory is the classic yellow rubber ducky, or find a fun new take on the classic design, like these safari zoo rubber duckies.

    After Bath Baby Towel – After a good bath, new moms and dads can wrap their little monkey in this cute handmade monkey towel. It makes a great baby shower gift and can be used over and over again as the baby grows from an infant, to a newborn, to a toddler.

    It's never to early to start your baby shower gift shopping!!

  • What Baby Names Are In Bloom For 2012?

    We are just a few days away from a brand new year! So we started thinking about all the new babies that were going to be born in 2012 and wondered what moms and dads will be picking out as names for all of those little bundles of joy.

    Nameberry has revealed their top 100 girl, boy and unisex baby names for 2012.

    At Blooming Bath, we of course are partial to names of the flowering variety like Violet (no. 4), Lily (no. 34), Ivy (no. 36) and Poppy (no. 37).

    We are sad to report that Posy, a popular English name for girls didn’t make the top 100 for the new year, nor did Petal, which gained popularity a few years back with a character of the same name from the book and film, The Shipping News.

    But, if you are planning on welcoming a Charlotte, Seraphina or Amelia to your family in 2012, you will be in good company, those were the top three picks for baby girl names. Asher, Finn and Henry won the top three slots, respectively, for baby boy names in 2012. The top three unisex names on the rise for the New Year include: Harper, Quinn and Rowan.

    Whether you are planning on welcoming your own baby in the coming months or you’re already planning  ahead for the baby shower gifts you will need to buy for friends and family, just a friendly reminder: Blooming Bath comes in yellow, blue and now pink! So there is a safe, soft and completely adorable baby bath with your favorite new baby’s name on it, no matter what name blooms in mind for 2012! Happy Blooming New Year!

    Here are some more of our favorite names said to blossom in 2012:

    Girls Names: Stella, Olivia, Hazel, Pippa                                                                        Boys Names: Grayson, Jude, Emmett, Hudson
