Celebrating Baby's First V-Day? Consider These Thoughtful and Memorable Gifts/Activities
Postpartum depression -- feelings of worry, sadness, and depression after childbirth -- occurs in almost 15% of births. That being said, helping out a new mother by planning an adorable and thoughtful event for baby's first Valentine's Day can make for some truly unforgettable memories. With a few premium baby gifts and some good friends, you can create the perfect event for baby's first Valentine's Day. Here are just a few gifts and activities to consider for a baby's first Valentine's Day celebration.
Gift Idea: Cashmere Baby Blanket
Some of the best baby gifts are those that will last for years, and a cashmere baby blanket is at the top of the list for must-have premium baby gifts. A baby cashmere set will help the baby get to sleep and stay comfortable throughout the night, allowing the mother to do the same. Plus, baby blanket sets are available in a huge array of colors and patterns, so grab one today for the perfect V-day gift.
Activity Idea: Sending Cards
Sending Valentine's Day cards from your baby is just one way to show friends and family members that you're thinking of them. Pull this off by gifting the supplies to the mother and helping her to make beautiful and memorable cards. Stamping the baby's handprint or footprint is always a classic idea, but it's also ideal to include a photograph, if possible.
"If you haven't sent a Valentine's Day note since you were in grade school, here's your chance to go old-school and surprise your friends and family with an old-fashioned letter of love. Since they're likely baby's (and your!) biggest fan, nothing will make them smile more than getting a heart-shaped note from your little love," writes Lindsay Tigar on FitPregnancy.
Activity And Gift: Smash Cake
That's right -- it may sound odd, but it's a growing trend among new mothers to celebrate any number of special occasions with their newborn. A smash cake, as its name implies, is a cake that's given to the baby for them to 'smash' while they eat it. For V-Day, a heart-shaped cake is best. Make sure to remember the camera!
Ultimately, it's easy to have a memorable 'baby's first Valentine's Day' celebration with these adorable ideas. For more information about baby gifts, contact 10 to 12 Baby Lounge.
