In light of the news that Kate Middleton was the first Royal to have a baby shower, Mothercare have brought out research that shows that women spend a whopping £560 on gifts and attend an average of 23 baby showers in a lifetime... and if you think that's alot, the most generous of friends spend a staggering £1664.67! Mothercare took a poll of women who had baby showers in the last year and one in 10 created a baby gift list. Over a quarter of the mums they spoke to revealed it was a moses basket they most hoped to receive, closely followed by baby suits. 

With the trend for baby showers increasing in the UK, Mothercare has created an essential baby shower wish list, as voted for by UK mums to make it easier to choose the perfect purchase:

1.    Loved So Much Moses Basket £54.99  

2.    Baby K Romper Suit, 2pk, £12

3.    Little Bird Patchwork Quilt, £54.99

4.    Little Bird Cot Mobile £20

5.    Knitted Pom Pom Blanket £19.99

6.    First Years Frame, £15

7.    Humphreys Corner Record Book, £15

8.    Plush Teddy (Lamb/Bunny), £8 each

9.    Personalised Moneybox, £20

10.   Loved So Much Sit Me Up Cosy, £39.99

Now that Kate's actually in labour, it won't be long until the Royal announcement, and to celebrate, Mothercare have brought out a new commemorative range which includes a series of new his and hers romper suits complete with the words 'Prince/Princess in Training' and bibs stating 'pretty as a princess' and 'handsome as a prince'.
