Baby Shower Gift Guide

A baby shower is a great time for the friends and family of an expecting mother/family to join together and help prepare them for parenthood. Traditionally a women-only affair, baby showers occur towards the end of the new mom’s pregnancy and involve party games and gifts for the coming addition.

Gift Ideas from Family Members

Family members often know the new mom best. Is she planning to use cloth diapers or disposable ones? Sleeping in the bed or the basinet? With this knowledge, family members can buy something they know the guest of honor will appreciate. If she’ll prefer to carry her baby close in something eco-friendly an Eggplant Organic Moby Baby Wrap is a great shower gift.

Ask any new parent and they’ll tell you a baby bouncer is a god-sent. Your loved one will really appreciate the MamaRoo Baby Bouncer. It has different motion settings, sounds and a toy mobile. When tired arms need a break, you can be sure they’ll put this gift to good use.

Just because you’re family doesn’t mean your gift can’t be quirky. Planning to be a fun-loving aunt? Why not start the newborn’s wardrobe off right with the If You Think I’m Cute You Should See My Aunt Baby Bodysuit? New parents will get a kick out of the adorable outfit and you’ll definitely be a prominent part of the little one’s life.
