Baby shower season is the season that never ends. Yikes! Should you be stressed that you don’t have a gift for the shower this weekend, yet? Nah, don’t sweat it. We’ve got some great Baby Shower Gift Ideas so you don’t get stuck just giving a gift card.
7 Great Baby Shower Gift Ideas
Whether or not you are a mother and whether or not you know what you’re talking about when it comes to babies, you know that you want to get the beloved mama-to-be the best gifts for her baby shower. Fortunately for you, more often than not, the expecting mother has done her research and registered for products she knows she will want (however, some gifts she might not even know she needs yet)!
So no need to stress, because here’s a quick list of foolproof baby shower gift ideas 🙂
We all know that babies go through diapers the most, so why not help out by buying a pack? This gift may feel like it’s there one second and gone the next, but it’s one less trip to the store and expense for the new parents. Overall: big help. Find out if the parent’s to be are using cloth or disposable and go from there.
Here’s a gift some new mothers may not expect to want or need for their baby and the nursery until it is too late and their baby has a cold and is having trouble breathing. A humidifier is a great way to personalize your gift to the theme of the baby’s nursery. Humidifiers come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, animals, you name it. Providing mama with this gift is a perfect idea.
When you think you have enough storage in your diaper bag or on your stroller, think again. That’s where the Mommy Hook comes into play! This durable and large carbineer hook simply adds more options for you to hang bags and necessities from with one simple clip onto the carrier or stroller.
Books for Baby and Mama
Most babies love books starting very young, so why not supply mom with some of your favorites from when you were a kid? Or, providing mom with a fun read or educational read is always a great idea as well. Try gifting a book you found to be helpful, or one that made you laugh or relax when times got exhausting – we all know they do!
Whether baby is nursing or not, this is a versatile gift that provides comfort for both baby and mom. That’s the beauty of it! You can use this gift for nursing, feeding baby with a bottle or simply, some snuggle time or pumping with a breast pump.
Big Ticket Item from Her Registry
Every mom knows that these registered gifts are the ones that they will most likely end up purchasing for themselves because the price tag is simply too high for a baby shower gift. That being said, if you know there’s an item on the registry that she is eventually going to buy for herself, talk to other guests about collectively going in on purchasing one of these items. It could be the crib, baby stroller, car seat, baby monitor, you name it. Undoubtedly, this gift will mean more than a few outfits or blankets.
Basket of Service
This is the ultimate gift idea. Most baby shower gifts are geared towards baby, and rightfully so. But what about mom! That’s right. Mom could use a little pampering too. The idea behind this basket gift is to offer up your service to mom. It could be anything from offering to watch the baby so mom can take a shower or a nap – or both! Or, you could offer to make a meal to bring over to the family. You get the point. This gift may seem simple, but it goes a long way!
