Even people who don't really like shopping can't help but feel a little perked up when they start scouring the malls for cute baby gifts. There's something about those baby gift aisles that makes you stop and linger a little longer than you had intended to.
The first question people usually ask themselves when they're about to make a baby gift purchase is whether the baby is going to be a girl or a boy. There was a time when it really was a guessing game. Now, many parents are choosing to learn the sex of their baby long before the baby shower. That makes it a lot easier for people trying to buy the perfect baby gift.
The selection of baby gifts available, and the creativity that goes into them, will amaze you. Years ago, you could buy a rattle or a stuffed cow as a baby gift. The only difference in whether it was for a girl or boy was the fact that the toy was painted blue or pink. Now you can get everything from personalized baby blankets to technologically advanced crib mobiles. Your only limit is the amount of money you want to spend.
If you're heading out shopping for a baby shower, it's a good idea to jot down a few ideas, set a maximum price that you're willing to spend, and remind yourself that it's not the quantity, it's the quality of the baby gift that counts.
