Usually new or expectant mothers have baby showers. In all the excitement, invariably the grandparents are forgotten. What many people do not realize is that grandparents play an important role in their grandkids' lives and should also be included in baby showers.
So, here are some baby shower gifts for grandparents that you can give the next time you know a person is going to become a grandparent:
The first thing is that you should do is organize a baby shower for the grandparents. This means making a guest list of the close friends, church members and people from the grandparents' social groups. Many of these people will not know the expectant parents, but will be well acquainted with the grandparents. So, invite these people over to celebrate with the expectant grandparents.
Once you have the guest list ready, it is time to get the invitations ready. You can have baby themed invitations like baby bottles, toy train or a teddy bear. In addition, pick up some thank you notes that the grandparents can send to the guests after the baby shower is over. These notes should also have the same theme as the invitations.
You can hold the baby shower for the grandparents in the night where you can serve dinner and cocktails to the guests. It is best to have it at home. Make sure you decorate the venue with balloons, baby bottles, baby socks and pacifiers. After the baby shower is over, many of these decorations will come handy for the grandparents when they begin to take care of the new grandkid.
Some baby shower gifts for grandparents are strollers; baby care products like soaps, shampoos, diapers, lotions, massage oil, wipes; toys; bedding; baby crib; items to help the grandparents to child-proof their homes; baby clothes; towels for the baby; digital camera, video camera, photo album, and baby advice books.
