So you’re going to a baby shower...what do you bring?!
Finding cheap baby shower gifts can be a bit of a pain, but not when you shop secondhand.
The great thing about shopping second-hand girls clothes and boys clothes is the items you can get for much cheaper than retail prices. Think Baby Gap, Bonpoint, Oshkosh and all those quality expensive brands out there. Babies grow so quickly that they don't get to wear much of their clothes (some end up not worn at all), so there are lots of like-new and new-with-tag clothes available out there.
For babies, comfort is vital, so make sure to stock up on onesies and leggings. But have some fun - animal prints and patterns bring in some fun in babies' wardrobes.
When you’re browsing for items to compose your baby shower gift, think past the newborn phase. Chances are the future parents will receive a lot of clothing for up to 3 months, so it's not a bad idea to also add outfits the little one can grow into. Think 6-12 months and up.
Whether the parents don’t know the gender of their child yet or simply prefer not to disclose it, shopping neutral is the best. Browse unisex sections to make browsing easier. You can also use filters to find clothes in cute neutral colors like white, grey, cream and green.
Have a budget you need to stick to? You can filter by price when shopping on Petit Fox - we have hundreds of affordable options under R100.
If you'd rather let the parents-to-be choose, you can also purchase a gift card that can be used towards their purchase. All items on Petit Fox are in excellent condition, sometimes brand new.
In addition to baby clothes, there are plenty of things moms could really do with: baby books, body and bath products, nappies... and pampering gifts for themselves too!
