Games that babies play

Baby shower are a common happening in almost all part of the world. People have been doing this for decades to celebrate and to welcome the latest addition to their family. These are generally welcome events for people that share the jubilation of the family that is celebrating it. During this time the single momentous occasion people are all out on the spirit of fun and celebration. And during this time people’s natural fun side emerges.

In these events the key to the success and guaranteed enjoyment of everyone relies on two factors, one is the menu for the night and the other one is the entertainment. These two go together like bread and butter, one is inconsumable without the other. There are times when the secret also is for one to cover up for what the other one is lacking. Food is a very critical agenda on any party or gathering. The food always reflects the ability of the hosts to please their guest. Sometimes people go out on a limb just to make sure that the people would take notice of how good the food is or ignore what the menu is lacking. In any case the entertainment must be extra special for the people to forget the bad taste in their mouth.

In a baby shower setting the entertainment is generally for the whole family. Because the expected visitors would be surely bringing along their children the night should centered on the majority of the crowd that has gathered. But for sure, party games, magicians and clowns are out of the picture. That is for the obvious reason that it’s a party not a circus. So a baby shower must be centered on the games that babies were meant to play and of course with the help of their parents.

So what kind of baby shower games can be played without jeopardizing the ambience of the occasion? Here are a few pointers on how to pick the right kind of baby shower games that can be played by both your young and young at heart guests.

First is to pick out a game that can be played on the limited space that you have in your house. The reason for limiting the venue for the game is to have the attention of everyone. When you try to place your game venue in a space that is not so confined, what will happen is that people will have the tendency to walk away and spoil the fun. When people see other people walking away from the game venue, the lemmings’ effect will take place. Number two is to involve the adults, the logic behind this is that when older people are making fools out of themselves children wouldn’t have a hard time joining in. in the eyes of the child older people do silly things can be fun.

And lastly, don’t be afraid to set an example. Being the host of the party you must be prepared to go on a limb to make sure that the older generations of guests are in to the game that you are playing. Showing them that you are a good sport and that it’s all in the spirit of fun would make it easier for them to break out of their shell and join in.

10 Incredibly Nice Things to Do For Her

You can demonstrate your love for the special woman in your life in a number of small ways. Flowers and candy on special occasions are always nice but you can also surprise a woman by offering smaller gestures on a daily basis. She will appreciate your thoughtfulness and understand that you are trying to show her how much she means to you.

One incredibly nice thing to do for her is simply to ask her how her day was and listen intently to her answer. Women enjoy talking about their personal issues and expressing an interest in her career or other areas of interest will be greatly appreciated. Listening carefully to her will let her know that you are interested in her thoughts and care about her feelings.

Cooking for a woman is another incredibly nice thing that you can do for her. Most women are the primary cooks in the relationship and giving her a night off from her usual kitchen duties is always a welcomed gesture. Don’t worry if you don’t know how to cook, it’s really not that hard. There are many cook books and Internet sites that offer a wide variety or recipes. Pick one that sounds interesting and follow the instructions carefully.

Remembering and celebrating a small occasion is another nice gesture that women appreciate. It’s always nice to celebrate on big occasions but if you remember the anniversary of another special day the woman in your life will be completely caught by surprise. For example celebrate the anniversary of the day you brought home your new puppy with a trip to a dog park.

Another incredibly nice thing to do for a woman is to give her compliments when they are unexpected. Women expect compliments when they put a lot of effort into their appearance but letting her know you think she is beautiful while she’s running errands, demonstrates that you see her inner beauty shining through at all times. Compliments don’t always have to be about physical characteristics either. You could compliment her on her career accomplishments and let her know that you appreciate how hard she works.

Handing over the remote control is another incredibly nice thing you can do for a woman. You may not want to sit through another episode of a home decorating show but allowing the woman in your life to indulge in this without complaining about her choice will show her that you are not belittling her interests.

If you want to do something really nice for the special woman in your life, get to know her family and friends. Woman value their relationships and she will be pleased about the fact that you take an interest in and get to know the other special people in her life. Caring about those that she loves shows her that you love her.

Still another incredibly nice thing to do for a woman is to write her a love letter and send it in the mail. Sure she sees you every day and you may even exchange emails and phone calls on a daily basis but a love letter is something that she can save in a special place and will cherish. Expressing your love in a letter is a special way to tell a woman that you care deeply about her.

Planning a trip for your woman is another incredibly nice thing you can do for her. A vacation is always nice but when you take the initiative and plan out all the details ahead of time, it shows that you want her to have the enjoyable experience of the trip but that you are willing to take care of all the planning. Women tend to take the lead in making travel arrangements and verifying the logistics of trips but if you take care of that ahead of time, the woman is free to just focus on packing for the trip.

Another incredibly nice thing to do for a woman is to surprise her at work by showing up for a lunch date. Woman always love to be surprised and your lunch date will give her the opportunity to get out of the office for a little while and enjoy some time with you. Many women skip lunch or work straight through it but giving her the opportunity to break away from her desk for even a half hour will give her a welcomed chance to relax a little bit.

Finally if you want to do something really nice for the woman in your life, it could be as simple as opening the car door for her when you go out. Women enjoy being independent but small chivalrous gestures are always appreciated. If you normally rush to the driver’s side of the car and hop in, stop once in awhile to open her door first. It will show her that you want to protect and care for her and will make her feel well loved.

There are many ways you can show your love for the special woman in your life. Many of the items listed above may be seemingly small, inconsequential things but it is these little things that really show a woman that you care. Doing nice things for a woman demonstrate that you want to go out of your way to make sure that she is happy.

Basket of baby joy

There are some people that are not that lucky with gifts. There are people that are not lucky with the gifts that they receive, there some that are not good at what to give and there are still some that are not lucky (or skilled) in both. Lousy gift-givers are part of the human society. There just some people that don’t really know what to give another person for their birthday, for Christmas, for their anniversary and for any occasion. Even though they have known the person their giving the gift to for some time, they still couldn’t put their finger on the things the person likes. And just imagine a person like that thinking of what to give to a little baby.

Baby showers, christenings, birthdays and other occasions that involve the ritualistic event of the baby gift giving would be a nightmare come true for a person couldn’t make head or tail of what would be the best thing to give anybody. A lot people can relate to this problem. But what does it take to give that special gift and why does it have to be so hard. Well for one, gift giving is no joke because you would have to know who will be receiving your gift. If a person has absolutely no idea what that person is like them it will be hard. Another reason would be time, if you do know the person but you don’t have enough time to look for the perfect gift, then that poses another problem because time constriction is a very common problem for everyone. And lastly, shortness of resources because even if you do know what to give and know what to give and where to get it if you don’t have any money or a little low on cash you’d probably have to settle for second best.

The good thing about giving the perfect gift to a baby is that you can make it an assortment of a lot of things that are cheap, practical and personalized. Now let’s go over that one by one. Cheap, giving the ideal baby gift basket doesn’t mean you’d have to stack up on the money. The good thing about baby stuff is that there are a lot of things that are cheap. For example, you want to give the baby something that he can use everyday. So instead of giving him a baby stroller you could just give him a baby walker. It’s less expensive than a stroller but can also be used to train the baby to walk.

That brings us to the second part of the baby gift basket formula, practical. Parents would be much happier if they could use the gift you gave. And lastly personalized, if you’re running out of fresh ideas for the things than can go to the baby gift basket, you can always have some things personalized that the baby can also use. A feeding bottle with the baby’s photo on it would be a good place to start. Or you could include baby dresses that have the child’s initial or his name embroidered on it.

You see the possibilities are endless and the only limitation that you can give yourself on what to put inside the ideal baby gift basket is up to you.
