I had an amazing baby shower this past weekend. That was due to many factors: the creative mind of my sister and her excellent organizational skills, the lovely and caring women attending coupled with lots of laughter and love in the air. However I think what also made it a success is that I had asked for specific things as shower gifts. Several people had asked what we needed for our baby so I spent many, many hours researching what items Sustainable PF and I wanted for lil’ SPF. In the end this meant that we did not get products that we won’t use (like plastic pacifiers and disposable diapers). Giving out a specific list meant our guests did not spend money needlessly and we don’t have a baby’s room full of useless stuff. Ask for what you want and you may just receive it!
