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.
