Having a baby is one of the most divine and magical experience but it is also quite a tough and tiring experience for the mum-to-be and therefore she needs plenty of emotional support from both family and friends.
One thing we all know is that babies need a lot of things so the main purpose of baby shower is not only to celebrate that huge blessing but also to help the parents in collecting all the baby essentials before birth.
Mostly in baby showers, parents like to have a baby registry just to make sure that the gifts are not duplicated. If some of the baby essentials are expensive like stroller or baby bed then friends or family members like to collect money from each person and give it as a group baby shower gift.
It is also noteworthy here that first time parents always like to collect things and they don’t even use half of them and eventually they either have to replace or return them.
