TIME SENSITIVE: BABY, OH, BABY–FRUGALISTA GIFT STEALS TO SHOWER ON NEW PARENTS

FRUGALISTA GIFTS FOR MOM AND BABY; STEALS AND DEALS FOR YOU

Baby showers happen all year long. However, according to the most recent published data from National Center for Health Statistics usually more babies are born in the summer. Per the CDC, September won out in 2010. Either way, odds are your recipient’s time is likely drawing near.  

For you lucky folks invited to upcoming showers or simply heralding new arrivals, the following deals may come in handy.  Yes, I know that parents complete shower gift registries. I also know, from experience, that said parents too often go around the store mindlessly picking out things.   In addition, it’s not unusual for the economically priced items to fly off that list fast. So, I say be creative, especially if you know the intended.  All of the items  listed below are useful, quality gifts that most parents will love.  You’ll love them because they’re great deals. Some up to 75% off. Do note that some offers are time sensitive.
