Even though it was almost five years ago, I still remember when Sam was born like it was yesterday. The old adage that time flies when you’re having fun is so true! Looking back, I can remember all our preparations and planning as we got ready to meet him. I was so nervous as I got ready to be a first time mother — I wanted everything to be just right. I needn’t have worried — being his mama came naturally and was much easier with the help of some of my favorite products. 

Unique Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Now, when a friend is getting ready for a baby, especially her first, I always think about those nerves as we prepped for Sam. I love putting together a memorable baby shower gift that includes all the items that made my life easier. It’s a great way to love on a new mom and help calm her nerves. I always took comfort in help from “veteran mom” friends since I knew if they did it, I could too.

Diaper Genie Refills from Target

One of my favorite ways to “wrap” baby shower gifts is inside a cute suitcase. That way, it can later be used to store papers and memories in one easy place. Once I have the suitcase picked out, I head to Target for my favorite gifts to include. Sam loves to help me shop! I tuck my favorite wash cloths, blankets, a nursery themed picture frame and my favorite: Diaper Genie refills. Among my friends, a Diaper Genie is one of the most popular gifts. Any of us who already have children know what an amazing product it is so it’s the perfect gift to give. I love including the Diaper Genie refills in my gift because I know how handy it is to have extras ready to go. {Let’s be honest, little babies are super cute and super stinky! You don’t want the whole house to be smelly.}

Just take your receipt and head to this website to redeem. It’s another great way you can pamper a new mom — or yourself! You’ll also want to be sure to visit Diaper Genie on Facebook and Twitter for all their latest news and offers.

He has taught her that it's okay to jump first and look later, to wear a dirty shirt to the park and to decide that today is a good day to take a nap in your rubber boots.
