If you are planning on attending a baby shower this summer, consider bringing a gift bouquet.
Many expectant mothers gather their friends together in the weeks before their due date to celebrate the upcoming addition to their family. Guests typically bring items the mother will need when her baby arrives, such as toys, baby clothing, strollers and cribs.
If you want to surprise the mommy-to-be, considering bringing a bouquet of colorful flowers as a gift. Most women won't be expecting a floral arrangement, meaning your gift will leave a lasting impression.
Blossoms create a sense of life and vibrancy, making them an ideal gift for a household expecting a new baby.
If you happen to know the gender of the infant, then why not purchase a pink or blue bouquet to match? For a feminine arrangement, blushing roses or pink azaleas will fit the bill. For a boy's bouquet, purchase some lilacs or snap dragons in a cool blue hue.
The weeks before giving birth can be stressful, but flowers can help reduce the anxiety of an impending due date. According to research published in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, pleasant fragrances can reduce stress and help one relax.
