This week we're talking about gifts, the kind you get for new arrivals, and just how strange some of them can be.
Shower visors! I actually bought one of these before Marianna was born and we never used it. It's one of those things that seems like a great idea until you realise you're more likely to be pouring a little bit of water with your hand, not blasting your baby's head with a shower head, and getting it on will probably be more trouble than the few seconds of rinsing.
Baby headbands with fake hair. You can get them with fringes (bangs), or little pigtails, or even full on wigs. I actually won one of these for 1p in a round of eBay Bargain Hunt and it was totally bemusing. I tried peeling off the hair so we could actually use the hairband but it did not want to come loose!
Snot suckers! These can be useful but the idea is just so nauseating. Especially when you can get little bulbous ones that you pump instead of having any connection between your mouth and your child's snot...
Branded baby trainers. Don't get me wrong, these are super cute! Just so crazy expensive and impractical when you consider they will only be able to wear them for a couple of weeks. Besides, if people want to buy shoes, mummy's always a grateful recipient... ;)
