Finding unique mommy-to-be baby shower gift ideas can sometimes be difficult. However, recently we discovered this gift idea that is not only entertaining & educational, but also whimsical! There is a lot of information that doctors, other mothers and the internet can give us, but being able to give all three (info, trivia and tips) as a gift at a baby shower is a unique twist.
The physical nature of the calendar is what makes it so endearing. There are apps for everything, so having something to physically interact with on a daily basis makes this calendar something special. It is also something for the whole family to share and enjoy!
Starting at Week 9, the mommy-to-be scratches off a block each day, finishing on day 265 of Week 38. Weeks 5 through 9 are uncovered right at the start, for the wiggle room of expecting dates (plus it’s just fun to read the blocks!).
Each revealed block has a nugget of wisdom, medical trivia knowledge, or humorous anecdote regarding the bundle of joy growing in the womb. “Eat your rainbows: a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables will help give baby a healthy start in life” is one tip. A medical info block states, “Over the course of your pregnancy, the blood volume in your body will increase by 1-2 liters (2 -4 pints).” Other little reminders pepper the calendar, which can be previewed in these photos.
Bright colors, whimsical scrapbook style animals and a sturdy poster stock make this a baby shower gift idea we heartily recommend.
