Celebrating a baby’s first month or 100 days and need a gift? Here are our top picks for the cutest 100 days gifts to mark this big milestone!
The 100-day celebration is traditional in Chinese culture, and is also practiced by some other Asian countries as well while some cultures celebrate the first month of a baby’s life. Traditional celebrations usually include symbolic gifts, gold jewellery and ang baos being handed down from older family members and close friends, as well as prayers for the new baby and their family. The proud parents would also distribute red eggs (symbols of fertility) and pickled ginger to guests.
One month parties and 100-day celebrations are still common now because it marks the end of the most vulnerable period for new babies and mamas – often to celebrate the end of confinement! 100 days gifts are a great way to show a new mama friend you’re proud of them for an amazing first few months with bub.
