September is here and as we retreat from the beautiful summer and enter the decadent fall it’s not only Pumpkin Spice Lattes that await us but it’s also the peak season for baby showers!
There’s nothing better than celebrating the excitement of the precious newborn with all the planning and preparation for them to join the world. From their name to their nursery, they say “it takes a village to raise a child” and with that village comes a great deal of gathering and nesting for its arrival.
With that in mind, who better to ask than our British American Household Staff team who are a perfect combination of working mommies, aunts and sisters and they jumped at the chance to share their insight into the perfect gift list for those expectant families and those who wish to treat both parents and baby with thoughtful and useful gifts.
