Baby showers are meant to celebrate a new life that is about to come into the world. You should go to that party with a smile on your face and you should look forward to it. Picking out baby shower gifts should not be a chore. Here are some of the best baby shower gifts so you do not have to search far for good ideas.
This unique pillow can help the baby sit without the parent, but it also doubles as a nursing pillow. It’s a great way for a mom to free her hands up for a book while the baby is nursing. You could also include a couple of boppy covers in different colors. The boppy is one of the gifts I personally used the most. I had one in every room and even one in my car.
A breast pump is a personal item, but it is something many mothers will use very often. If the mother in question is a close friend or family member, a breast pump makes a great gift. Breast pumps are convenient, inexpensive, and a great way for many moms to get a little time off from feeding the baby, especially in the middle of the night. Before you buy a breast pump, make sure the mom plans to pump and not breastfeed or use formula exclusively.
There are many wonderful baby carriers on the market and there are also many that hurt mom and dad’s back. Read up on some of the carriers and see what those who have used them say about the style and fit of the carrier. I used a hand me down carrier from my sister and complained each and every time I wore it. I wish I had gotten a nice, comfortable one as one of my baby shower gifts. These carriers can help mom free up her hands at home, but they also are a great way to keep the baby close and comfy when you are out and about.
Babies go through a lot of diapers and if the new parents have a two story house, it’s not easy to walk all the way down the stairs and to the outside trash bin every time they have to change a diaper in the middle of the night. The diaper genie keeps the nursery odor free and the bags inside are easy to change.
-Organic baby bedding
Most baby shower gifts in terms of bedding include blankets. Blankets are wonderful gifts, but they are also quite common. If you give your friend or family member organic baby bedding including sheets, you will be giving a gift that no one else will likely give. It is not easy to pick out sheets that will fit into the decor in the baby’s room. Even if you do not get the exact color or style right, the mother will likely be glad to have an extra set of sheets in the middle of the night when she needs them.
-Walt Disney Princess jewelry
If you know the baby is a girl, it can be fun to think of her as a toddler and even older. Most people will only think about the baby and not about the little girl. If you buy her Walt Disney princess jewelry, you are giving her a gift that will last for many years. She will enjoy it as she grows and starts to play dress up and other make believe games.
