Is it just a few weeks to your best friend's baby shower and you still haven't figured out what gift(s) to get because you can't seem to find that 'perfect' gift? Or maybe its a random friend's baby shower and its your sole mission to steal the eyes (and attention) of the crowd by bringing a gift that would outshine every other? Whatever category you fall in, I understand! I've been there, and succeeded ;) , maybe failed sometimes ( Not my favorite moments lol) but which is why I don't want you to experience the same. In a bid to help a sister like you out, I put together something I wish I have always had: a go-to list of the hottest gifts you can buy and where to get them. So you can be done racking your brains. Trust me, this will solve your problem.
Gift-Giving Tip: The most perfect gifts are not those which cost the most money, they are those which genuinely connect with the emotions and soul of the receiver. This has actually been researched and proven according to an article in Forbes Magazine. Your girlfriend and mom-to-be is, at this stage excited about her new baby coming, but she's also terrified (even if she doesn't say so). So you can use this to your advantage. You can win the 'competition' by getting her something that will remind her of how much fun raising a baby can be or something that will make her feel in control of her baby's safety (or both!). The choice is yours.
That being said, here are our awesome ideas!
These onesies are great. Everyone at some point in their childhood was obsessed with Harry Potter. Getting your preggy girlfriend this, not only makes her connect with her childhood days (the young and hip days--- everyone loves to feel young again) but the hilarious sayings on the onesies would make her laugh even on a bad day! Plus onesies are one of the things that she cannot do without, and can't ever have enough of. She would literally sing you praises!

The combination of a cute and innocent baby face with an ugly horrifying pacifier is honestly too funny guys! Also a pacifier would help to soothe her baby= more sleep= happy girlfriend. And its a pretty cheap option too.

If you want to go for something a bit more serious, especially for those who are very health conscious, a pacifier sterilizer would be a good option. This is a relatively new technology (not a lot of people know about it!) which uses Ultra Violet light rays to destroy bacteria which inevitably accumulate on pacifiers and feeding bottle nipples. Why not make her feel like she's in control of her baby's health by getting her this! Considering the pacifier is going to be one of her baby's most used instruments, its a great option. Good care of it is important and cannot be overemphasized. This would make a great gift combo with the horror design pacifiers.
