COOL IS THE PEOPLE BEHIND THEM! THIS WAS CERTAINLY THE CASE WITH ISSY
KERR, THE CREATOR BEHIND 'SERIOUSLY MILESTONES'. ISSY IS A MUM OF TWO
AND CREATED MILESTONE CARDS BASED ON THE 'REAL' PARENTING MOMENTS SHE
EXPERIENCED. THEY ARE A LAUGH, AND SO REFRESHING IN AN AGE OF 'PERFECT'
FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM PICS!
I CHATTED TO ISSY RECENTLY, AND SHE GAVE ME HER ULTIMATE BABY SHOWER
GIFT IDEAS. YOU WON'T FIND THE STANDARD GIFTS ON THIS LIST, AS JUST LIKE
HER MILESTONE CARDS, THEY ARE A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT!
to be the person who stands out at a baby shower? The one that has the
mum-to-be texting you later to sincerely thank you for your thoughtful
gift? The list below will pretty much have you guaranteed to be named
the kids guardian, because, it’s actually all about the mum! We know
it’s called a ‘baby’ shower, but seriously? This is possibly the last
time in a women’s life when she gets to be totally selfish and not
having to worry about her newborn - so spoil her!
so this is kinda a big ticket item, so you might want to grab a few
buddies for this one. Think about it though – the bed is where she’s
going to most want to be for the last stages of her pregnancy, and the
place where she is not going to be spending much time when bubs comes,
so help her make it REALLY enjoyable while she’s there! Going solo on the present? Why not go with these beautiful linen pillow cases from Kip & Co from $39.00, they’re so soft she’ll fall asleep straight away!
present works for everyone, seriously. If she’s into make up? Perfect!
She’s going to want to layer that stuff on after birth because NO ONE
looks good after the sweat fest that is labour. More of a practical
person? Also perfect! Fill it to the brim with nipple cream, pads, lip
balm and dry shampoo – she will love you forever. Try out this General Eclectic number for just $19.95.
ok. I know it’s a bit cliché BUT, when you’re about to face the reality
of potentially being stuck indoors for a very long time, lets make said
indoors nice. Twenty One Moore offer a range of Damselfly official
candles, so you can pick which one suits her personality best. My pick? “You’re Lovely” candle in large for $39.95.
know the mum-to-be is the only one not tipping back the champagne, so
she’s not likely to forget the finer details of the day, but I also know
that she would love to hear some words of wisdom from her guests. Plus,
even if she never actually uses the advice written by her friends, how
fun is it to play guess the baby sex and name?! Check out Rhicreative’s Baby Shower Guest Book for only $19.95.
is something ever so humorous about a first time mum having no idea
that pregnancy isn’t all big boobs and glowing – so give her a heads up!
Not a first time mum? She would have probably forgotten the finer
details anyway, and no doubt will be ‘grateful’ for the reminder.
Seriously Milestones “Preggo Pack” for $29.95.
And, if all else fails and you’re doing a mad dash to the supermarket on
your way? Just get the poor thing chocolate, she will love that too!
