As the trend for baby showers grows – together with the sometimes controversial baby shower list – so does the pressure to find clever and unique baby gifts. Even harder to shop for is the latest big thing – the gender reveal party.

£24.35 average baby gift spend

In the UK, women will attend an average 23 baby showers in their lifetime, spending a total of £560 each on gifts says Parent Dish.

That’s £24.35 per gift. A not insubstantial sum, especially for the under 25s who attend three times as many baby showers as women over 35, according to Mothercare who conducted a survey of British mums.

Talltape reviews

Talltape has received great reviews – from the Daily Mail to New York Metro Parents, from mummy bloggers and from customers around the US and Europe.

Here’s what ‘AnyWayToStayAtHome’ blogger Briony says:

“Talltape is the only product I have come across so far that I really wish someone had bought me or I had known about for when L was born. It is a really simple idea, a roll up height chart, but it works so well and creates a lasting memory… I really do love this little product and at only £10.99 think it’s great value for money, this would make the perfect gift for families with kids of any age or expectant mums, I really have been so impressed.”
