If you are expecting a baby, chances are that an eager friend or coworker will be throwing you a baby shower. If you know the gender of your baby, clothes will be a popular choice for a gift. If you're expecting a baby girl, expect to receive lots of cute outfits and to see pink balloons lining the room.

Dresses, jumpers, and swimsuits are likely to be popular choices for gifts to give to parents who are expecting a new daughter. Several designs are available, featuring items such as flowers and animals. You can also find many several pieces from brand name designers. While you may want to have a few of these, you may also come to find that they are rather expensive in comparison to lesser-known manufacturers of clothing. Though they may last a little bit longer, you will have to decide if the name on the label really justifies the price difference. (That's often why you'll get brand name baby gifts but won't buy them for yourself!)

Saving Some Money on Clothes for Baby Girls

Even though adults have stopped growing, we tend to spend a large portion of our disposable income on clothing. As such, it should come as no surprise that you will end up spending a substantial amount of money on clothing for your baby. Since babies are growing, however, you are unlikely to get as much use out of this clothing as you would like.

To recoup some of the expenses, you should think about selling your used girls' clothing either to thrift stores or directly to other parents who are looking for baby clothing. If the clothing is still in good condition and your child has outgrown it, getting back just a portion of the cost can give you a little bit more money to spend on new clothing for your baby girl. You can also look to consignment stores and other parents who are selling used clothing to save on costs when buying clothes for your youngster.
