Unfortunately, pregnancy is not a breeze for every mother. Some women have complications that can keep her bedridden at home or even at hospital. For expectant mother, waiting for birth of a child from bed is lousy. A baby shower can be customized around her situation to brighten her day, giving her hope while lifting her spirits.
Instead of waiting on birth of baby, go ahead and plan shower with close family members and friends, bringing shower to her. Remember, after baby is born, a full-scale shower can always follow. However, for this type of shower, guests should create a miniature gift box or basket. Great ideas of what might be offered include:
•Craft projects that can be worked on in bed are good choices. This might include cross-stitch, needlepoint, simple paintings, and even handmade ornaments. •Books are also excellent ideas but it is important to choose books that she likes. Ask her or her family what types of books she enjoys reading.
•Puzzles are also a great way for expectant mother to pass time. This might include crossword puzzles, other puzzle books, or a flat tray with a small piece puzzle, perhaps of a baby.
