    Big "staple" item (car seat, stroller, diaper bag)

    Little necessities (diapers, thermometer, wipes)

    Bedding (sheets, blankets)

    Cute clothes (those cute, can't resist full outfits)

    Practical clothes (plain onesies, tshirts)

    Things for mom (breastfeeding items, etc)


    I always pick something from the registry

    I don't pick something off the registry

    @barbie86:  Oh that’s interesting. I didn’t realize they were unusual in the UK. Are bridal showers as well?

    It depends.  Sometimes I will purchase items from the registry. At other times, I will select adorable outfits instead.  Sometimes they’re clothes that the baby can wear later during his or her first year of life. However, there are times when I deliberately choose items in a 12-months size so that the baby also will have clothes to wear later.

    Something off the registry, totaling around $30-40.

    Lately I have been giving tie-dyed onesies – they are always a hit! And these cool lullabye CDs – usually soothing instrumental versions of Smashing Pumpkins, Nirvana, etc.

    So as I Said , I usually pick the things from the baby registry . I like you take cute baby clothes, blankets, carry cot and even ring sling. I think these things are very useful for the baby. Last time when I attended a baby shower for my friend I bought a Power yoga DVD for her. She liked the gift very much.

    It’s not the norm to register here so people tend not to.  I usually buy something other than clothes or along with clothes that mom will need but most likely won’t get at the shower: bath tub, diaper bag, etc.  I have also given diapers and such as well.

    @Sea_Ashley:  I usually go in with my mom and sister if its a family member or friends for a large ticket item.  I know those are things that the parents to be sometimes cant afford on their own or cant afford all of the items on their own so at least they will have something!
