Adorable Baby & Maternity Gift Ideas That Are Actually Useful

Are they doing only pastel colours? Only organic? Ask her what she’d like or needs. A whisper in her ear, or ask her advice as if it were for someone else. Most pregnant women have a long list of things they’d love. Ask her if she’d like something for her, for the baby or even something that’s not a thing – a pre-bub holiday, a treatment? But with 7 kids between us, here are our top best baby gift ideas that we KNOW are helpful. Let's dive into these baby shower gifts as though it was a glass of wine on a Friday!
