Lately, I have felt like I am in the middle of gift-giving season, no matter what time of year it is. Between baby showers, wedding showers, birthdays and holidays, I feel like I am always looking for gift ideas to give on my never-ending shopping list. Sometimes it is nice to just have a great idea in mind and run with it. And that is exactly what I found with Lullabuddy, a product that was recently sent to me for review.
Here are my 5 reasons why Lullabuddy makes the perfect baby shower gift.
1. The Gift Of Relaxation
Can you think of one person on your shopping list who couldn’t use some stress relief and relaxation? Especially new parents, expecting parents or the baby on your list. Lullabuddy makes the perfect baby shower gift because it truly is the gift of relaxation. Each Lullabuddy comes with 2 hours of pre-downloaded lullabies and love songs. Mae Robertson’s award-winning music is written is a ¾ time, which gives them a swaying motion, which mimics the movement a baby’s experience in the womb. The simple, repetitive melodies have been shown to calm babies both in and out of the womb – and mothers alike!
2. Small And Portable
The Lullabuddy is both small and portable. Measuring in at about a 2 inch square, this thing can go just about anywhere. New parents can easily throw it in the diaper bag, carry it from room to room, or leave it in the car. The Lullabuddy fits in the palm of your hand and is made of a durable structure that can withstand daily use, just be warned it is not intended to be used as a baby toy.
3. Easy To Use
The Lullabuddy comes ready to use. Simply take it out of the box, plug it in and press play. The ease of this product is what truly makes it the perfect baby shower gift. No complicated directions, no need to download music or create playlists, and no complicated setup instructions. My Lullabuddy completely charged in less than an hour and can run for 18 hours off a single charge! (The website does recommend you allow it to charge for a full three hours before unplugging for the first time.)
When needed, just plug it into a USB charging cable (included) and you will be good to go. It also has a 60 minute shut off timer so you can set it and forget it. Plenty of music play time to allow baby time to relax and fall asleep. Without parents needing to remember just one more thing of turning off the music box.
4. No Need to Multi-task
Multi-tasking is a part of motherhood. Moms quickly learn how to do a million things at once. Including doing many things while holding a newborn. Although this is a task that is quickly mastered by many, wouldn’t it be nice to give new parents a gift that doesn’t require them to multi-task? The Lullabuddy eliminates the need to multi-task. No need to try worry about finding your cell phone, looking for soothing music, and having to leave it with the baby when they finally fall asleep. You also don’t have to worry about old school CDs, finding the right radio station or plugging and unplugging your Alexa while you move from room to room. The Lullabuddy makes the perfect baby shower gift because it allows parents to use it for its one purpose, music for baby. No multi-tasking required.
5. Unique and Affordable
When looking for the perfect baby shower gift, you really want something that is both unique and affordable. The Lullabuddy fits both of those criteria in my book. The Lullabuddy is something that just might fill a need that an expecting parent might not know that they have. It gives the gift of relaxation, it is small and portable, easy to use and requires no multi-tasking. The Lullabuddy costs just $60 and can be found on their website or Amazon. It comes in a cute blue and white box that is easy to wrap. Easy to deliver and ready to use from day one.
