Did you know?
The term ‘Baby Shower’ has only come into use relatively recently but celebrations surrounding birth and motherhood can be dated back to ancient times. In some countries, a baby shower is held before the birth to celebrate the upcoming arrival of the new baby. Yet in other countries it’s held after the birth, to celebrate the transformation of a woman into a mother.
Whenever it’s held, most of the events around the world include ‘showering’ the mother and child with gifts, hence the recently coined term ‘Baby Shower’.
Why not ‘shower’ the Mum-to-Be with personalised handmade gifts? Our wooden letter train idea would be perfect for this, either as a gift for the Baby Shower itself with the word ‘BABY’ or accessorised with the new baby’s name after the arrival.
