I'm not sure if this is backed up statistically or not, but I certainly think there has been a bit of a baby boom in January. I'm basing this on the number of orders for baby gift baskets we have been receiving. You just have to look at the Daily Dispatch images to see more and more baby gift baskets creeping in. We tend to concentrate more on food and pamper baskets as they aren't so specialised, but it's hard to resist the cuteness of baby clothes, booties and teddies. There have also been quite a few celebrity babies born this month with Louis Tomlinson, Tyra Banks, Colleen Rooney, Sam Faiers, Michael Bublé and Cat Deeley all welcoming new arrivals.
Alongside new baby gift baskets, there have also been quite a few pregnancy gift baskets ordered. These tend to include treats for the mum-to-be such as chocolates, magazines, hand creams, pre-natal bath soaks & stretch mark oil. I think these gifts are a really great idea as pregnancy can be tough work!
Another unproven stat for you, we tend to sell more baby boy baskets than baby girl baskets so does this mean there are more boys being born? Now there is something for me to research further...
Do you know anyone who has recently had a baby or who is due shortly? Are they more boys or girls in your family?
