Continued from page 1
Items that grandmother will need most are: Crib Bassinets High chair Bottles and feeding supplies Diapering supplies: diapers, wipes, powder, cotton balls, diaper cream First Aid: diapers, disinfectant, tweezers Wash cloths Extra bibs, burping cloths, onesies, hats and gloves Bathing supplies (soap, shampoo, lotion) Tylenol and vitamins Baby blankets Nail clippers, thermometer, Vaseline Teething toys Safety gates, locks for cabinets and drawers, outlet covers
Other items Grandma may need: Umbrella Stroller Extra car seat Bouncer seat Baby swing Toys! Music Books (for baby and Grandma) Videos
Grandmothers will also love to receive gifts such as personalized shirts and blankets. “I love my Grandma” picture frames a perfect gift that can be purchased just about anywhere. It will make a great start to photo gallery that begins to blossom in living room!
Other nice gifts include family tree items. And don’t forget about gag gifts! If grandmother-to-be has a good sense of humor you could give them stuff to insinuate that being a grandmother makes her (gasp!) old! (Even though we all know that’s just not true!)
