One Stop Shop: Baby Shower
Are any of your friends or family members expecting a baby sometime soon? If so, you may be attending a baby shower (or multiple of them) in the near future. As a cafe, shop, and studio, we at Room 2046 pride ourselves on offering a unique shopping experience. We encourage you to have a drink while you browse the store and pick out a card to go along with any gift you purchase. This way, you can get a caffeine boost and complete your shopping in one easy stop. To make gift-giving as smooth as possible, we present the five steps to prepare for a baby shower with Room 2046.
Step 1. Get your caffeine fix
At Room 2046, we have a cafe-in-shop so you can sip on a delicious beverage while browsing our selection of baby shower gifts. We offer premium espresso-based drinks, hot chocolate, matcha, and the valmonte, our signature drink. We also serve fresh baked goods and have gluten free options available. If you are shopping at home from our online store, grab your favourite drink while you search our website to get the full Room 2046 experience.
Step 2. Pick out a card
We have a full collection of baby related stationery to spice up your baby shower gift. Show your support for the mom-to-be with a cheeky card like the Bench Pressed Crap Nap Eat Card, or the Smitten Kitten Tomfoolery Way to procreate Card. Although many of our cards are profane, we also carry a range of more classic congratulatory cards for expectant parents, like the Flakes Paperie Congratulations Baby Card and Yeppie Paper Hello Baby Plush Animals Greeting Card.
Step 3. Shop for a baby gift
Now that you have a playful or sentimental card for the shower, it is time to pick out a gift. One idea is a gift to make bedtime and naps pleasant for both the parents-to-be and the baby. The soft Bronte Menzies Baby Pink Merino Lambswool Cushion and Throw are warm and comforting additions to a child's bed, and are made from good quality, pure wool. They are also currently 50% off, so grab one before they are gone! The FCTRY Gummy Goods Night Light is a fun and functional addition to a child's room, as it is flexible and huggable and the light is turned on by squeezing its belly.
If the expectant parents are fashion-forward, Room 2046 has gifts fit for an equally stylish baby. The Room 2046 Weekdays One-Pieces are screen-printed with the days of the week in our studio, and made with non-toxic water based inks. We also carry Baby Opticals, colourful sunglasses for babies that are polarized to protect their eyes and shatter-resistant to protect the glasses from being frequently dropped.
Take the typical gift of toy blocks to the next level with Uncle Goose Blocks from Room 2046. These sets of 28 blocks are crafted from sustainable Michigan basswood, and are embossed and printed with a colourful range of non-toxic inks. The Classic ABC Wooden Blocks will help the baby learn how to read, write, sort, and just have fun. There are a variety of animals, numbers, and math symbols on the sides of the blocks, as well as four full alphabets. The blocks come in a variety of other languages, including French, Italian, Arabic, Spanish, and Hindi. We also carry the Uncle Goose Groovie Math and Patterning Wooden Blocks, used to help teach children sorting, ordering, opposites, and patterns. The grooved blocks have numbers, math symbols, geometric shapes, and come with an activity booklet.
Step 4. Get a treat for the mom-to-be
While you pick up a gift for the baby, why not browse for a treat for their mom-to-be? After many months of being pregnant, she definitely deserves something special for herself as well. Satisfy her sweet tooth with some delicious chocolate, like the Shoko Chocolates Hazelnut Dragées, David H. Chow Pistachio Fig Milk Chocolate Bar, or Laura Slack Chocolate Almond Toffee. For a serious sugar rush, try the Room Service: Sweet Tooth Set, a gift set filled with five of our favourite chocolate bars and wrapped in a handmade wooden box. We carry a range of other Room Service sets for seamless gift-giving, including the Room Service: Serene Spa Set, filled with bath products, a Turkish towel, and a scented candle.
Step 5: Gift Wrap
Room 2046 has our own exclusive line of wrapping paper, designed in-house and printed in Toronto. Complimentary gift wrapping is included with purchase of wrapping paper, making your gift-giving experience completely taken care of.
