The True Purpose of a British Baby Shower

Our beautiful, hand-made advice books have been proving extremely popular so far this year, and are definitely one of our favourite items.

Although some people still think that baby showers are mostly about the giving and receiving of gifts for the new arrival, here at The Ultimate Baby Shower we know that actually the most valuable aspect of baby showers for mums-to-be is the chance to learn hints, tips, and pearls of wisdom from mums, grandmothers, aunts and friends.

One of my favourite suggestions for a baby shower is to ask every guest to write their best advice down in a book, which can then be presented to the mum-to-be as a keepsake, and provide her with invaluable reassurance in the early days of motherhood. Not only does this act as a great ice-breaker at the party, it also ensures that none of the personal advice and experiences are lost after the shower itself.

I spent a long time trying to find the perfect advice book, but when I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for we commissioned these exquisite handmade books, which are exclusive to The Ultimate Baby Shower.  Each is handmade in the UK, and beautifully packed in a gift box, making them a really lovely and timeless gift for a new mum.
