Baby music CDs make great gifts for baby showers

Baby showers are a tradition stemming all the way back to the early 1900s. Clearly, the goal is to "shower" new moms-to-be before they give birth. While times have changed, the tradition hasn’t. Yet now you can be more creative than in the past—instead of giving diapers, clothing and rattles, you can give fun gifts like baby music CDs that offer exciting developmental value.

Back in the day, baby shower gifts were typically homemade and practical. Now gifts are very wide-ranging—while some are still of a practical nature, others are not at all. Some attendees give the best baby toys you can think of! At a baby shower, you’ll see gifts ranging from cribs, bedding, bathing products and other supplies to dolls, books and baby music CDs.

Another reason why musical baby toys make such great gifts is that they are not gender-specific, and many times, parents don’t want to find out the gender, which leads many toward gifts in the yellow color range. Some of the best baby toys tend to be those that either gender can play with through infancy and toddlerhood.

Instead of looking for standard baby blankets, crib and bassinet accessories and items for the mom-to-be’s diaper bag, think about getting them something they will use for years to come. Musical baby toys provide fun, bonding moments for both baby and parents, so really you’re giving a gift to all involved! Listening and playing to children’s songs is a great de-stressor and can make it easy to teach your child about rhythm and movement, as well as vocabulary—and help them improve their memory skills. Plus, baby music DVDs take it to an entirely new level by featuring stimulating visuals with music and songs that help children to associate different words with their appropriate meanings. It’s a great way to help the new parents-to-be get a head start on their baby’s education.
