Top Baby Shower Gifts

If you have been to a few showers in your life, can you recall any gifts that stuck out? Usually all one can remember when they go to a baby shower is the massive amount of pink or blue. It is only the unique baby gifts or the creative baby gifts that stick in your memory. Give a memorable gift that is both useful and fashionable at the next shower you attend. Chances are people and the expecting mom will remember your gift for years to come.

Diaper Cakes- The trend of diaper cakes will never grow old. This ingenious idea to shape diapers into a neat cake and decorate it with baby essentials is sure to win the attention of the new mom and guests. After the diaper cake is done being the center of attention at the shower, the new mom will be able to take it home and put the diaper cake to good use. There are so many diaper cake designs available at Mommy Couture Designs. You can find a customized cake perfect for the little one it is intended for - whether it is a boy, girl, or even twins!

Bathing Essentials – Gift givers cannot go wrong with giving bathing essentials as a gift. Babies need a lot of baby shampoo, lotion, and bath toys. Make bathing essentials fun by giving unique or organic baby bath soaps or by packaging it all in a cute bathing tub for babies.

Baby Gear – Every momma gets a good share of diapers and cute baby clothes at the shower, but what moms really need are the basic hip gear, such as car seats, strollers, and bouncers. Since these things tend to be a bit pricey, a good idea is to split the cost with one or two fellow shower attendees. This works best if you are close to the mom to be. Some affordable and useful baby gear that every mom will love are baby slings and bottle sanitizers. Affordable vibrating chairs or floor activity centers for babies are also a useful gift idea.

Cute Baby Clothes – The easiest gift to give new moms and babies is cute baby clothes. Give baby clothes that are cute and unique to the new parent’s personality. For example, if the new parents love Rock and Roll, a cute rock star baby onesie or shirt is a gift that will be remembered. Another good tip to remember when gifting baby clothes is to give different sizes. That way the new parents can enjoy your clothing gift for more than just three month after the baby is born.

If you are still unsure what to give an expectant or new mom, just ask. Maybe the new mom desperately needs bottles or diapers, but everyone is giving her clothing. By asking the mom or her relative directly, you will be able to fill any needs with your baby shower gift.
