The traditional baby shower originated in the 1800s and has evolved over time. Originally, women hosted tea parties to celebrate the impending birth of a new child, "showering" the expectant mother with love, gifts, and money. Baby showers are still common for first babies; however, a diaper or baby "sprinkle" is for subsequent children, when only a few new items are needed. At GiftTree, you'll find the perfect baby gift to shower both Mom and baby with the love and attention they deserve.
For a new twist on an old tradition, host a men-only baby shower for dad. Who says Dad has to sit on the sidelines while Mom gets all the attention? Give Dad a baby gift basket filled with gourmet treats, chocolates, and fine wines to toast the new addition.
When the grandparents are going to spend a lot of time caring for the family's new addition, they'll need supplies, too. A "Grandparents' Shower" is a sweet surprise for the proud grandmother and grandfather. Expectant grandparents will love a baby gift basket overflowing with newborn essentials.
It is not always appropriate to give a baby gift prior to birth. For instance, in the Jewish tradition, it is customary to give a baby gift after a child is born. In Greece, new parents hang wreaths on their doors to announce the baby's arrival. Whatever custom you celebrate, you'll find a baby gift here at GiftTree.com that is as unique and wonderful as the new person you're welcoming into the world.
Although an ancient Indian tradition, many families still plant trees to symbolize new life. As the baby grows, the tree grows toward the sky, representing maturity and responsibility. The Indians also believed that planting a tree ensured long life and prosperity. Why not send a baby gift that is both beautiful and symbolic. At GiftTree, we honor this ancient tradition with our Colorado Blue Spruce seedlings. These seedlings are planted inside adorable ceramic containers for delivery and can later be transplanted outside as a living tribute to the child.
