Do you have a baby shower event to attend? Are you considering a baby shower gift idea for the new mom? The hard part about choosing baby shower gifts is that you want to find something that not only looks fun but also works for mom. In my opinion, the best gifts are those that look great and are functional. You don’t want a gift sitting unused in the corner of the house or being passed on to another mom.
We created a list of baby shower gift ideas to help you find the perfect gift that is not only cute but functional too.
1. Baby Milestone Cards
Baby milestone cards make thoughtful baby shower gifts. New moms can record their little baby’s first year and all the special moments with these baby milestone cards. Some of the cards say, “I got my first tooth.” “My first Easter.”
2. Baby Handprint and Footprint Kit
These baby handprint and footprint kits are baby shower gifts that can be treasured for a lifetime. New moms can use this kit to record realistic impressions of their newborn’s tiny limbs. This adorable kit includes non-toxic white clay, a small rolling pin, a hand-painted wooden frame, double-sided tape, and easy instructions.
3. Baby Bouncer
Baby bouncers also make great baby shower gifts, and all moms use it. It is useful when the mom needs to put the baby to sleep, to go to the bathroom or cook in the kitchen, or when she needs to clean or rest before picking up the baby. This baby bouncer from Bright Starts Safari includes 2 toys and has a machine washable seat pad and insert
4. Baby Play Gym
Before you imagine a room with exercise machines, remember that a gym for young children is very different from an adult gym or exercise room. Baby Play Gym is an interactive play mat for your baby. A play mat or gym is a must-have item on every new mom’s wish list and makes a great baby shower gift.
5. Diaper Backpack
New moms always carry a bag with their newborn to store all the diapers, wipes, clothes, bottles, pacifiers, and other goodies that the baby needs on a regular basis. Diaper backpacks replace traditional diaper bags that strain your back and shoulders.
6. Baby Bath Tub
From the moment the baby is born, the mother will need to bathe it. Baby bathtubs make great baby shower gifts. This one from Fisher-price is a convertible baby to toddler bathtub with support and a seat.
7. Baby Carrier
A baby carrier makes it easy to transport the little baby. It’s known as babywearing. This adjustable baby carrier is a perfect baby shower gift that new moms are sure to use in their baby’s first year. This baby carrier is easy to put on and take off the baby.
8. Baby Toiletries Set
This Johnson’s Bath Discovery Gift Set includes hypoallergenic bath time essentials in a cute, reusable bath caddy. The set contains baby lotion, tear-free body wash & shampoo, hand & face wipes, cotton safety swabs, and diaper rash cream.
9. Cot Mobile
Crib Mobile is a must-have feature for your dream crib. Its function is not only to decorate the baby’s crib, but it is also necessary for the development of the baby’s curiosity and imagination.
10. Rattle Set
The first toy a baby is given is a rattle. This rattle set comes with 10 Bright Primary colored Rattles/Teethers for different stages of the baby’s development. Each rattle has different grips, shapes, and tasks to assist in fine motor skills.
