Summer always seems to bring an abundance of weddings and babies, making it the season for celebratory showers. But as your social schedule grows, it can sometimes seem like your savings account shrinks thanks to purchasing all of those shower gifts. In order to both save your money while still impressing your friends, we’ve come up with some gift ideas for these special events that will have you sailing smoothly through the months ahead.
Baby Showers: You could just grab a box of diapers, put a bow on it, and call it a day, but why not opt for a gift that’s a bit more unique? Purchase a plain, solid colored baby romper and then stock up on crafting supplies, such as glitter, ribbon, paint pens, and more. Let your inner artist run wild by decorating the romper to your heart’s content, creating a one-of-a-kind outfit that is as unique and adorable as the baby who will wear it.
Wedding Showers: Something simple and thoughtful is often the best choice to give the new couple before their wedding day, and Philosophy offers an array of charming bath and body products that you can customize for the occasion. You can choose the Falling in Love shower gel, for example, and select a picture of the happy couple along with any well wishes for the bride and groom and put them on the bottle. Not only will you be giving a gift, but you’ll create a cute keepsake that both the bride and groom can enjoy every morning. Customized gifts are typically pretty pricey, but until June 16 you can get 25% off all purchases, and free shipping on purchases of $50 or more (code: PHILOSOPHY25).
