Baby Shower Gift Ideas with My 1st Years

I couldn't make my friends baby shower so I threw her a little baby shower lunch when she came down to visit last weekend.

I ummed and arred over what gifts to buy her for a while. 
Clothes? What size should I get? What if she doesn't like what I buy? Toys? What if she already has lots of toys? Cuddly toys? Too boring? 

Fortunately, My 1st Years* were on hand with some gorgeous gift options. Now, I LOVE My 1st Years, you may've read my review of their beautiful personalised blanket here.

My 1st Years are an online gift store, priding themselves on providing unique, one of a kind, high quality baby gifts. They promise a great choice of products, a fantastic service, a next day delivery option for those last minute presents and above all ...happy customers!

They have pages of gifts, from blankets and bibs to robes and keepsakes, and the majority of items can be personalised, which makes them one of a kind. I bought a couple of their personalised vests as christmas gifts and they were really happy with them. 

I decided on this Personalised Baby Photo Album.

Isn't it beautiful?
A cream photo album, perfect for a boy or girl, with beautiful raised lettering and jewel encrusted silver 3D shapes, held together with a silky soft ribbon. The unique finishing touch is the silver plaque, beautifully engraved with baby's name.

The photo album includes an All About Me page and approx. 100 sleeves.

This album has unfortunately ran out of stock, but they have this gorgeous baby shower album available, which is super cute!!

Alongside the photo album, I put together 2 gift baskets; one for Mummy to be, Kelly, and one for baby, Emmie. 
I bought 2 cute baskets from Asda, that can be used once baby is born [I have these exact ones under Taylor's changing table] and filled them with little gifts.

I filled the baby basket with body suits, sleep suits, bibs, dummies, scratch mitts, a bottle and selection of baby toiletries. 

I filled Kelly's basket with things to help her through the last few weeks of pregnancy; some Lush products for some relaxing and pampering, some cooling bump mist, pregnancy Spanx, to help rock those outfits over the last few weeks, and I made some fun little vouchers for her such as 'FREE FOOT MASSAGE', 'LOTS OF CHOCOLATE', 'DAY OFF FROM THE HOUSEWORK'... etc.

Have you found a perfect Baby Shower Gift lately?
