Gift Ideas for Baby Shower that are Thoughtful and Useful
By Martha Sanders
If you're invited to a baby shower, chances are you'll need to bring a gift. However,
picking the right gift for a baby shower can be difficult since we have seemingly
unlimited choices of baby products. You want to pick a gift that the expectant mom
or the baby will love and preferably, something that they do not already have. New
parents appreciate thoughtful, useful gifts that their babies can enjoy for a long
time. Here are some great ideas on what to buy for baby shower.
What Are Some Good Baby Shower Gifts?
1. Buy practical gifts such as baby lotions, baby ointments, baby shampoos, diapers,
wipes, baby powder, and other functional baby items. Place them in a pretty basket,
tie a cute ribbon and you'll a baby shower gift that can help new parents save a
lot of money.
2. Buy gifts that's fun for the baby. These days, you can find interesting baby toys
that vibrate, play music, and have colorful lights. Things such as bouncy seats,
swings, rockers or mobiles make cute gifts and can also help growing a baby's mind.
3. If you want to buy baby clothes as gifts, it's wise to look for those are soft,
non-scratchy and need no dry-cleaning or ironing.
Also buy clothes in medium sizes or a variety of different sizes. Since most parents
will receive clothes intended for a newborn baby, it's thoughtful to buy clothes
that will grow with the baby. For instance, 12 months, 18 months or 24 months. Comfy
cuffed overalls with adjustable straps or pants with elastic waist are great.
4. Things like a breast pump, baby backpack carrier, stroller, car seat or diaper
bag can really be helpful and useful to the mom. Giving some gifts that can help
make her life easier is often very appreciated.
5. Technically speaking, a baby shower is supposed for the baby. However, pregnancy
and the arrival of a new baby can be taxing for the mother. So buying a gift for
her can be something that gives her a little boost.
A gift certificate to a local mall, foot spa, magazine subscription or charm bracelet
with a baby shoe to commemorate the event can be a nice thoughtful gift for the mom.
6. Aside from getting a baby shower gift from the mall, you might want to get creative
with your hands. For example, a homemade baby sock bouquet makes an affordable yet
stylish gift for a mom-to-be at her baby shower.
