Who ever invented the idea of having a baby shower did a great job. What are the gifts that a pregnant woman gets during her baby shower? I am making a file about everything related to pregnancy, and parenting. I want to know for my knowledge which are the best baby shower gifts to give a woman carrying a baby. How is a baby shower gift chosen exactly? Does one give it thinking of the baby or the mother? Is the mother appreciated for carrying the baby? Do you give products like breast pumps, or baby bottles? Does not the mother already think of buying that? Please explain.
