Environmentally-Friendly Shopping: Natural
and Organic Gifts for
Your Next Baby Shower
When shopping for that special present for your next baby shower, environmentally friendly gifts are an excellent
choice. Not only do they help the environment, but they also contribute to the well being of the baby.
mothers who are conscious of the health risks of using so many of the personal care products created for children
cringe when they receive items like talcum powder–and baby bath products with sodium laurel sulfate and propylene
glycol as listed ingredients–because of their potential toxic effects. Organic and natural products are the best
choice, and shopping at an organic cotton store for natural baby clothes is ideal (and can be fun).
If you are the one hosting the baby shower, before the event you can even ask the “mom to be” to choose
some items from the store’s baby boutique. This way, you can give shower attendees some ideas for gifts. For the
baby, organic cotton clothing will feel so comforting next to their tender skin. You will find so many adorable organic
cotton baby outfits, for both boys and girls. Many are also unisex, just in case the expecting mother decides to
forgo knowing the sex of her baby until delivery. Can you imagine the mom’s excitement when she realizes how much
thought went into the care of her baby when receiving such special gifts?
Other wonderful choices are items you can put into an environmentally friendly gift basket. You can fill it with
products for both mother and child. Imagine an assortment of pure essential organic oils created especially for the
baby. Along with natural essential oils, homeopathics created for children’s ailments and issues are unique and caring
gifts, and they fit nicely into a gift basket.
