Some of the best baby shower gifts are things that the new mom would love to have but wouldn't normally buy for herself or baby. Think about a special treasure that can be kept for generations as a keepsake. Think of a classy new personalized baby blanket. Or a baby take me home outfit to bring her little pride of joy back home from the hospital. A classic heirloom silver rattle for baby is also a great option. Meaningful baby gifts that can be kept for a child's life are perfect for baby showers.
A baby shower is a special time to celebrate the happy occasion of a newborn. It is a super way to help mom and family prepare for the new bundle of joy. There's no better reason to throw a party!
Baby Shower Gift Ideas
Some fabulous baby shower gifts are gifts sets that include a cozy outfit (cute clothes, hat, and booties) along with a matching personalized baby blanket, and bunny.
Personalized Baby Blankets
Gifts made from super-soft, luxurious fabrics, all handmade to impeccable standards in the USA are sure to be a hit. These include the softest all cotton blankets in our baby gift sets. Add personalization like the date of the baby shower to make the gift even more memorable.
Natural Baby Pacifiers are a practical baby shower gift.
Bibs Baby Pacifiers
Another cool all-natural gift that every baby needs is the Bibs pacifier made in Denmark from natural rubber. So much better for the baby than a plastic one and much classier too. Baby will love it and so will a new mom. These items also fit in another trend: gifts that are useful and unique. Pairing lovely needed items with style is the key to the best baby gifts. Keep that in mind when making your baby shower gift list.
That special silver rattle will be used and treasured for years to come...
Bunny Buddy with a Pacifier
Pair a bunny buddy with a pacifier for an adorable and useful gift that would top any baby shower gift list. Bunny's velcro paw will make sure that both bunny and pacifier stay with the baby. Cuddly and cute, both mom and baby will be smiling.
Newborn Gift Sets
Newborn gift sets are perfect for new parents and have everything they'll need when they bring baby home.
Keepsake Bag for Baby Outfit
Another useful baby shower gift is a keepsake bag to keep baby's special new outfits safe for generations to come. Even a mom of two or more probably doesn't have heirloom storage and will love this.
As an awesome alternative to a cash gift, you can give a gift card to Baby Beau & Belle and let the new mom get a stylish classic outfit for her baby's take me home or upcoming baptism.
Other super baby shower gifts are gift basket of necessity like baby food samplers or a variety of baby care items like soap and shampoo in a super cute container. Another idea that will score big with mom are certificates for meal delivery services or a certificate for a monthly massage for a year. A new mom wants to be pampered and treated like a queen.
